5Toubun no Hanayome Wiki

"The Five-Part Bride" (五等分の花嫁, Gotōbun no Hanayome?) is the first episode of the 5-toubun no Hanayome anime series.


Taken from the official site:

Fuutarou Uesugi is a second year high-school boy who managed to land a favorable part-time job to be a private tutor.

The student he is supposed to teach is a new transfer student in his class named Itsuki Nakano, but unfortunately, she had a bad impression to him. Fuutarou tries to get closer to Itsuki, but he got overwhelmed by four girls around her...


The episode opens with Futaro Uesugi on his wedding day, waking from a dream about the day that he met his bride (whose identity is obscured). The narrative then flashes back to Futaro’s schooldays; in the cafeteria, he encounters Itsuki Nakano when she sits at his usually-solitary lunch table. Seeing his perfect score on a recent test paper, she asks him to help her study, and offers to share her lunch; however, he is rude to her and she becomes upset with him. Futaro receives a call from his little sister Raiha, telling him that their father has secured him a part-time job as a tutor for a student he soon realizes is Itsuki. He tries to seek her out to apologize for earlier, but ends up meeting her four quintuplet sisters; Ichika, Yotsuba, Miku and Nino (without realizing their biological identity). He goes to the Nakano apartment and tells Itsuki he is her tutor, before finding out (to his shock) that the five are identical quintuplets, all of whom he has been hired to tutor. He attempts to hold their first study session, but only Yotsuba is responsive. Nino puts sleeping pills into Futaro's water and sends him home in a taxi; Itsuki accompanies him, and meets Raiha as she greets her brother's arrival. She ends up eating dinner with the Uesugi family, discovering their financial struggles, and accepts Raiha's invitation to return.


List of character in order of their appearance:

Anime and Manga Differences[]

  • Yotsuba's excellent eyesight is even more emphasized in the anime. ("The Five-Part Bride")
  • Fuutarou bumped into another student as he was walking over to a table in the cafeteria in the manga, which was not shown in the anime. ("The Five-Part Bride")
  • The anime rearranges several scenes such as Yotsuba trying Ichika's sexy lingerie in her room, Fuutarou calling the Nakano Quintuplets' father, and Raiha stirring the 5 yolks in a bowl. ("Home Visit")
  • The order of the sisters' bedroom in the anime is reversed compared to the manga. This is a deliberate change by the author.[1] ("Home Visit")
  • There is a difference in designs; in the anime, Futaro has blue eyes, while in the manga, he has black eyes.
  • Chapter 1:
    • In the manga, before Futaro sits down in the cafeteria, he drinks a glass of water, and a student runs and bumps into him, making the water splash on Futaro's face; this is absent in the anime.
    • When Futaro gets rejected by Itsuki after trying to sit down with her in the cafeteria, in the manga, Ichika invites Futaro to their table, goading him by saying, "Don't you want to eat surrounded by gorgeous girls?"; this is absent in the anime. The anime actually shows Futaro dropping his test scores and being taught with Yotsuba, which the manga does not depict.
    • In the manga, Futaro asks Yotsuba if she could tell Itsuki that he apologized for their previous encounter; this is not shown in the anime.
    • When Nino teases Itsuki about how her eating habits would decrease her popularity with boys, Itsuki retorts that she had lunch with a boy yesterday, of course, referencing Futaro. This exchange is in the manga but omitted in the anime.
    • In the manga, when Futaro is running up the stairs to catch up to Itsuki, he thinks about all of the quintuplets and gives his brief first impressions of them individually; this is not depicted in the anime.
  • Chapter 2:
    • Futaro has a conversation with Papa Nakano over the phone before rounding up all the quintuplets; this is absent in the anime.
    • In the anime, when Futaro goes door to door to gather up the quintuplets, he is left knocking on Nino's door with no answer, with him and Yotsuba assuming that she wasn't in her room. In the manga, Yotsuba and Futaro actually walk into Nino's room and see that she isn't there.
    • In the manga, Futaro questions Ichika on why she is naked while asleep in a room where we also find out that Ichika is still wearing underwear; this is omitted in the anime.
    • This is omitted in the anime when Yotsuba looks for clothes for Ichika to wear and finds a racy top. In the manga, this happens the first time Futaro visits the Nakano residence; in the anime, this happens the third time Futaro visits.
    • In the manga, after Miku confronts Futaro about her missing sweatshirt, Ichika suggests that Miku wear her old gym clothes from her previous school, to which Miku declines. This is omitted from the anime and is semi-important because in this scene, Miku alludes to having a bad experience with her old school, setting the stage for the quintuplets' backstory.
    • In the manga, before Nino drugs Futaro, she questions him on the details of the deal she made with her father; this is absent in the anime.
    • In the manga, Futaro's dad realizes that the milk he's drinking expired a week ago, and he comments that he's happy he drank it before it got too bad; this does not happen in the anime.
    • In the anime, when we find out that the quintuplets transfer because they all nearly fail, it happens before they take Futaro's tests; in the manga, we find that information out as a result of the quintuplets failing Futaro's test.
