Quintessential Quintuplets Story
Futaro Uesugi is struggling with personal problems in his life, but he is otherwise an academically talented student. However, he is faced with his family’s debt.
A golden opportunity presented itself to him when a private tutoring gig was offered to him. He is expected to tutor a wealthy family’s daughter, and earn a very high wage. He did not hesitate to accept this offer, but he was shocked to find out that the wealthy daughter turned out to be the girl he was at odds with – Itsuki Nakano.
What’s also more shocking is that Itsuki is part of a quintuplet which includes Ichika, Nino, Miku, and Yotsuba. Futaro is tasked to tutor all five of them. However, the sisters are not interested in having high grades, so Futaro has to work extra hard to get them to graduate.
Eventually, the academic performance of the sisters improved over time. Futaro also became involved in their personal lives, thus complicating their relationships with one another. Futaro also started to develop feelings, but he has to figure out which among the quintuplet he has felt connection for.
