5-toubun no Hanayome is an anime produced by Tezuka Productions and broadcasted by TBS based on a manga series of the same name by Negi Haruba. The anime runs for 12 episodes and the first episode premiered on 10 January 2019. The 2nd season of the anime is announced on 5 May 2019.
Fuutarou Uesugi is a poor & anti-social top student. One day, he gets a job tutoring a rich family that's new to town. Fuutarou's soon-to-be students are revealed to be his new classmates, Itsuki Nakano, and her four quintuplet sisters. Despite the girls' poor first impression of Fuutarou, he tries seriously to do his job, only to find they have terrible grades and terribly complex personalities.
