The Quintessential Quintuplets is a popular ongoing harem manga and anime franchise, and its popularity stems not only from the beloved harem genr, but the unique twist in all five girls being sisters, and quintuplets at that. The male lead, Futaro Uesugi, is surrounded by five identical faces with five very different personalities behind them.
Futaro found himself surrounded by these lovely sisters via his role as their classmate and tutor. The Nakano sisters' father demands that Futaro tutor the girls into shape for high school graduation and university after that. All kinds of touching moments, quintuplet shenanigans, high school hijinks and more await, and new fans will definitely want to find the right starting point for this harem adventure.
