The sisters are all falling for Futaru. Who will he choose? Will 'The Quintessential Quintuplets' return for season 3?
'The Quintessential Quintuplets' manga series concluded its serialization in 2020, but it did not stop us from getting anime content.
The manga got adapted into an anime that currently has two seasons, and a new movie is already on the way.
'The Quintessential Quintuplets' is a harem anime following the life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who got hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. One of the sisters will eventually become Futaro's bride, but her identity is still yet to be revealed in the anime.
Will the big reveal finally happen in season 3? Here's what we know.
'Quintessential Quintuplets' is not renewed for Season 3 yet. However, fans will be happy to know a movie for the anime is coming.
The film currently has a 2022 release schedule. So how does the anime movie affect the series and the potential return for a third season? Let's take a look back at the source material.
The manga series stopped serialization in 2020, with a total of 122 chapters collected into 14 volumes. The first season adapted the first 32 chapters of the manga. The second season increased the pacing of the story by eliminating story arcs and limiting the dialogue. As a result, the second season covered up to chapter 86 of the manga.
The movie will serve as a sequel to the second season of the anime series. There is always a probability that the movie will serve as the conclusion to the anime. Meaning, we might finally know who among the sisters Futaro will choose in the upcoming film.
Although there is still plenty of source material left to cover, they could all be adapted and crammed into one or two movies by drastically altering the pacing.
Guess we'll have to wait until the movie airs and see where it stops on the manga so we could see if there are still chapters left to cover for season 3.
We will update this space once we get more updates.
The anime debuted with an average and mix reception from fans. 'The Quintessential Quintuplets' currently holds a 7.65/ 10 rating on MyAnimeList. However, the second season received more favorable reviews and ratings. It currently has an 8.16 rating on the same website.
The anime is not renewed for season 3 yet, but assuming it will be, we can predict its potential release date based on a few factors.
The first season produced by Tezuka Productions premiered on January 10, 2019, and ran until March 28, 2019. The second season produced by Bibury Animation Studios was originally scheduled to premiere in October 2020. However, it got delayed to January 8, 2020, due to the pandemic, and concluded on March 26, 2021,
Based on that schedule, we would've expected the third season to premiere next year, 2022. However, since the anime movie is already set for a 2022 release. Then, a third season will likely release by 2023. Again, this is just a prediction with an assumption that the movie will not conclude the narrative for the manga.
As of now, it's hard to predict what the plot for season 3 will be, knowing that the anime sequel is still on the way.
The last season of the anime sees the girls fighting for Futaru's attention.
When they get back to Kyoto, Futaru tries to recall what happened five years ago. One of the sisters claims that she is the Young Nakano that Futaru met at that time. The identity of the first girl will be revealed by the end of the trip.
Futaru gets confused as he starts to get closer and more intimate with each of the sisters.
If the movie leaves enough source material for another season, we will likely find out who among the sisters Futaru will eventually marry in season 3.
The second season shifted studios but retained the main voice cast. Hence, the main voice cast will likely return should the anime return for season 3.
