5Toubun no Hanayome Wiki

"Five Cranes in Return" (五羽鶴の恩返し, Gowazuru no Ongaeshi?) is the tenth episode of the second season of the 5-toubun no Hanayome anime series. It is the twenty-second episode overall.



Futaro is approached by fellow classmate Takeda Yusuke, who reveals that Futaro’s class ranking slipped during the finals from Futaro tutoring the quintuplets. Takeda suggests that Futaro quit tutoring, but Futaro defends his choice, declaring that he'll make sure the sisters pass and that he'll make it into the Top 10 of the upcoming national mock exams. Ichika reveals her feelings for Futaro to Nino, and they resolve to compete for his love. The sisters decide to postpone Futaro's birthday gift-giving until exams are over, as to not to distract him. On Futaro’s birthday, Itsuki tells him she's begun interning at a cram school. After the exam, Futaro surpasses Takeda, placing 3rd nationally, earning his admiration. The girls present their gifts to Futaro. Miku tells Yotsuba that she wants to prepare a lunch for Futaro on their upcoming school trip. Yotsuba tries to help set them up together, but Ichika interferes. Raiha tells Futaro to get Yotsuba a thank you gift for her help during the school camp. After looking at things her sisters like at the mall, Futaro asks Yotsuba what she wants. They go to a park that Yotsuba frequents and have fun talking on the swings. While cleaning at home, Ichika discovers the picture of Futaro and "Rena", finally realizing that “Rena” indeed is one of the sisters. Yotsuba, despite not physically receiving anything from Futaro, explains to him that she already got what she wanted, which was to spend time with him and see him smile.


Anime and Manga Differences[]

  • In the manga, Takeda's confrontation with Fuutarou and the quintuplets took place at the quintuplets' new apartment. However, in the anime, the location was changed to the school library instead. The quintuplets' father was also part of the confrontation in the manga, but this was changed in the anime.
  • Fuutarou and Yotsuba's date takes place shortly before the Kyoto trip during the third year, instead of during Thanksgiving of the second year. Also, unlike the manga, they don't run into the other quintuplets and Raiha while they're out.
