5Toubun no Hanayome Wiki

The fifth volume of the 5-toubun no Hanayome series.
The English subtitle for Volume 5 is "The Reason Why."[3]


Futaro Uesugi the private tutor has come down sick after the school trip, but not even illness can keep him from trying to get the quints to study! As he tries to get closer to the five girls, he ends up driving a wedge between them instead. And just when he's about to hit rock bottom, Futaro's past catches up to him in a big way?!


Fuutarou is hospitalized. When the sisters visit him, they find his condition is getting better. Itsuki is curious about why Fuutarou studies so hard, so he tells her a story about a young girl from 5 years ago. Strangely enough, Itsuki owns an item similar to the one in the story, which she obtained from the same place and time frame.
