Quintessential Quintuplets Film

The conclusion of The Quintessential Quintuplets is coming in feature film form, and TBS Animation shared a second “wedding” trailer for the movie ahead of its May 20, 2022 release date. The trailer comes as part of the Anime Japan 2022 event, an industry affair promoting new series and productions. It features new footage and voice acting from the final release.

The trailer begins by teasing images of the Nakano sisters in wedding dresses, before moving to a montage of the girls interacting with Futaro. Playing in the background is a the theme song for the Quintessential Quintuplets film, “Quintuple Paths.” The song is performed by Ayana Taketatsu, Ayane Sakura, Inori Minase, Kana Hanazawa, and Miku Ito, who play the Nakano quintuplets.

Based on creator Negi Haruba’s original manga, The Quintessential Quintuplets film closes out the story of Futaro Uesugi and the Nakano sisters. Futaro is hired to tutor the quintuplets, who happen to be his classmates. They’re also infamous for their troublemaking and poor grades, making the first hurdle in his tutoring gig just gaining their trust. Similar to live-action series like How I Met Your Mother, The Quintessential Quintuplets reveals early on the Futaro marries one of the sisters, but hides the wedding and just whom he tied the knot with. The film will show this, though the manga story concluded in back in 2020. The film was originally planned as a third season of the anime (its first two seasons aired in 2019 and 2021). TBS Animation announced the decision to move from series to feature film in April 2021.

The Quintessential Quintuplets feature film will debut in Japan on May 20, 2022. The anime series streamed on Crunchyroll in North America and Europe. A second game adaptation from Mages, The Quintessential Quintuplets: The Five Memories Spent With You, goes on sale in Japan for PS4 and Switch on June 2, 2022.
