Their game of tag has come to a close, yet one person is no where to be found. Now, it was originally claimed by Ichika that her sister was avoiding Fuutarou. This is typical of Itsuki, but something this time didn’t feel quite right. Fuutarou will be pulling “ Ichika” aside for a private chat. There’s no fooling this genius. Beneath that hood and surgical mask, Itsuki was there all along. Unfortunately, their time alone will be cut short. Fuutarou has been holding back a fever for days, and he can no longer keep up appearances. It will be only bed rest for him for the remainder of the trip. Sadly, falling sick here means he will not be able to participate in the bonfire dance. This is an event just about everyone was looking forward to, although the quintuplets won’t let Fuutarou’s last day end in a disaster. They knew how much this trip meant to him, so they will all participate in the legend at his bedside. Everyone take a finger, Fuutarou is destined to be with 5 beauties.
This was a story about studying, right? Well, I doubt many people truly came into this for the studying aspect. Gotoubun no Hanayome is truthfully just about rooting for the girl you want to see win, although there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ve watched numerous harem shows over the years, though I have to say this one has some fierce competition. No matter which of the quintuplets you choose, they each have quite the fans behind them. Obviously, I’m on team Miku, yet she’s still got a ways to go. She was able to declare her love openly during the finale, so you go girl! Now, Miku isn’t the only sister in this running. Ichika and the others have only gotten started, and that’s where the fun of this show lies. While the battle for “Fuutarou’s” heart is ongoing, we still have to complete the major task at hand. There’s no future until we get these 5 sisters to pass their exams. Marriage will have to wait till later.
There’s no way I can end this without talking about the art displayed in the show. Tezuka Productions did not make this one easy on me. I don’t typically talk about the difficulty of covering each show here, but stitching together the media for this one has been a major task. Whether you noticed this or not, there isn’t very much going on in this show. As such we had a lot of slideshow movements, and I mean a lot. Overall, I created 505 stitches for the quintuplets. If we take a step back to say, Neverland, there I only had to make 86. So, only about 5 times the work, though pretty typical for harem shows. One should never go into this genre expecting masterpieces. Regardless, let’s just hope the blu-rays can make some much needed improvements. There’s plenty of frames that could use some help.
Loved the story, but the art had me in a funk. Nevertheless, I can happily give this one a 7/10. Quintuplets has been an overall nice ride, and I’ll surely miss it. Moreover, there’s no word of a season 2 yet. I’ll keep an eye out, but in the meantime if you’re interested in continuing this story, then your best bet is reading the manga. There’s only 79 chapters currently out, so catching up should be fairly easy. This adaptation was mostly on point, so you can even start from chapter 33. Anyhow, we’ve got a legend to witness. Enjoy the final day of the trip!

Our fun with the quintuplets may be over, but there’s plenty more to come here. Join us for more media reviews everyday!
I’ll be sure to take a look at all these. If there are any others you’d like to suggest, then please do so in the Spring Request post.
Oh I didn’t know you were alone for this.. that’s kind of hard.. it must be difficult, I pray for you to do your best out there.. as for the recommendations, I can’t really recommend anything but I can tell you what animes I’m going to watch this spring.. some of them being: Ao-chan Can’t Study! /// Miss Washer!: Her and I in Female Bath!? /// Mr. Nobunaga’s Young Bride /// Senryuu Girl /// Why the hell are you here, Teacher!? /// We Never Learn. These are just to name a few that I would say are worthy to capture some quality screenshots of, and also the ones I’m going to watch so it would be neat to see some nice screens of them, especially Why the hell are you here, Teacher and Miss Washer!: Her and I in Female Bath!?. If you get my meaning… not that I’m pervert or anything of course but I do enjoy some good ecchi anytime.
There’s plenty I would like to cover each season, but I’m only one person. I do try to get a good mix in, so there should be a little bit for everyone. Next season might not be as big as this one, though. This season has near killed me to get every show done. However, a post about next season should be going up soonish. I would like to know what others are interested in seeing here. The Spring season isn’t really catching my eye, thus I’m all ears.
Thank you, I’m really glad that I found this site cause it’s really nice to see all the major scenes in a High resolution pictures without subs. The reason why I was commenting only on this anime is because this was the only anime that I watched from your selected animes that you do screenshots of here, after all I watched My roomate is a Cat, Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Girly Air Force and many more that didn’t make the list here, which I’m kind of sad about because I’d love to have HD screenshots of those animes as well but I understand that you can’t cover all the animes that are coming out during a particular season and that’s okay, I’m glad that this anime was one of them cause after all, this anime was one of my favourites this season. So I thank you and everyone else who participate on maintaining this site, it’s a glamorous work you’re doing here and I hope there won’t be any more problems with the site like there were in the past.
First, let me just say thank you, Adam. I’ve enjoyed reading your weekly comments, and you’re the first to do so here. It’s a true pleasure to have you around. Moreover, everything surrounding Quintuplets appears to be showing strong sales. This doesn’t mean we’ll get a season 2 for sure, but it does help immensely. Let’s just hope the manga has a lot more to roll out. As long as the source is on-going, then a chance for a squeal goes up.
Well I must say this was one wholesome harem, seriously good quality and everything! I loved the characters, music, opening, story and the characters development, it was one hell of a show!.. Still, I’m kind of mad that we didn’t get an answear as to who the bride really is but oh well, I guess the mystery aspect is also part of why I love this anime so much. But also because I don’t think I will find another wholesome harem like this, it’s just.. so sad that it’s over, man I really hope we get a season 2 of this.. if not I’m gonna be pissed..
