― Fuutarou Uesugi

Fuutarou Uesugi (上杉 風太郎うえすぎ ふうたろう, Uesugi Fuutarō?) is the main protagonist of the 5Toubun no Hanayome series. He is a serious and hardworking high school student, and a prodigy at the top of his grade.[2] Due to financial reasons, he is tasked to tutor the Nakano Quintuplets.


Fuutarou had an experience to get his ear pierced before.[3]</ref>


Fuutarou is a stern-looking young man with a short hair and tall build. He has a natural black hair colour with a slight pigeon-blue shade on it.[4] In his younger days, he dyed his hair blonde while assuming a delinquent persona.[5] Fuutarou is mostly seen in his uniform, even during summer festival and hanging out outside.[6][7] Fuutarou owns an older model candybar phone.[8] He only has 2 contacts in it, his father and Raiha.[9] Miku remarks that Fuutarou has "a face of a villain".[10] Nino consider Fuutarou's hairstyle weird.[11]


His Kintarou persona sports a blonde, more spiky, and slightly longer hairstyle.



According to Isanari, Fuutarou used to be similar to his father as a kid, with their wild personality and being bad at studying. He lives a frugal lifestyle.[12] Fuutarou prefers solitude, his friends remark that Fuutarou is "by himself again".[13] Someone comments that Fuutarou is always like that, trying to not associate with everyone.[14] Ichika remarks that Fuutarou is direct and doesn't mince words.[15] Yotsuba's first impression of Fuutarou is a gloomy and not-having-many-friends guy.[16] His facial expression is always serious, sometimes having grumpy and annoyed look, and rarely blush or flustered.[17][18] Fuutarou thinks that being the Class Representative is just hindering his study.[19]

Fuutarou is noted to have a big ego and high confidence.[20][21] He can also be rude and straightforward, but is actually capable to hold back his emotions.[22][23] Despite that, Fuutarou could momentarily lose his composure when agitated and faced with unfavourable circumstances.[24] He also doesn't like getting involved with other people's problems, finding them to be troublesome.[25]

Fuutarou is shown to be hardworking and has a high patience, as he is able to tutor several girls that have below average scores. It is personally stated and hinted that Fuutarou currently doesn't have interest in romantic relationships.[26] He considers love as something foolish and detests it.[27]

Fuutarou is seen sweating when he's lying and/or nervous.[28][29]

Raiha describes Fuutarou as "an overly confident" guy and a "study freak".[21][30]

Nino encourages Fuutarou about his future love life, despite labelling him as a tactless guy.[31] Ichika also said the same thing when she visits him in the hospital.

The older Fuutarou is someone who doesn't pay attention to everything except work.[32] The test sheet is written specifically for each sister.[33] Fuutarou then tells them that they don't need to pay him now, and that they could do so in the future.[34] Fuutarou worked on various food-related part-time job. Itsuki suspects that it was for the free food.[35] Miku finds Fuutarou which is thinking about love-related stuff funny.[36]


Fuutarou tried to make Kintarou as someone more manly and brawny than his silent usual self.


Fuutarou is a smart student and ranked top among his peer. He acknowledges that his forte is only studying.[37] He is able to score perfectly in various tests.[38] He got 100 in all 5 subjects during the Second Year Midterm Exam.[39] He also has an exceptional memory and excellent reading comprehension.[40] Fuutarou is able to absorbs several dozens worth of book in three days.[41] His reason for studying is related to a young girl in his flashback.[42] Fuutarou is able to sleep while sitting straight with his eyes wide open.[43] Ichika's director notes that Fuutarou is the one who draws out Ichika's potential.[44] Fuutarou is shown to have a cunning and crafty mind, as he's able to get the most out of the cafe's menu, successfully trick a teacher with his plan, and getting the lazy Nakano Quintuplets to start studying.[45][46]

Fuutarou acknowledges that human relations isn't his strong point.[47] He always tries to cut off relationship with others aside from family, that is why he doesn't have experience about confession before.[48] He is less adept with technology, he is unfamiliar with the internet's function.[49] Another indication of his lack of knowledge in technology: he is unfamiliar with Nakano Quintuplets' apartment lock system.[50] Fuutarou has low physical endurance/stamina.[51] Miku and Fuutarou have almost equal physical endurance/stamina.[51] He even tried to piggyback Miku, but has no strength to do so.[52] Fuutarou has a low strength, he is unable to lift a log, while the other guy is seen carrying it without much difficulty.[53] Fuutarou is shown to be very tired after the sprint, and unable to lift some equipment, another indication of his low physical strength.[54]

Despite his poor social skills, he is able to see through a person's emotion and motivate them.[55][56] Initially, Fuutarou is unable to judge the names of the sisters since they're so similar, but later he is able to differentiate them by how they call him.[57][58] He is also capable of distinguishing the girls' based on their individual style of writing. Fuutarou is in a slump for quite some time, as he is bothered by Nino's confession.[59]

Fuutarou is not a good cook.[60] He is able to ride a motorcycle.[61] He once worked on a delivery job before, which was when he got his license.[61]
