The Quintessential Quintuplets is one of the ‘Harem‘ type anime but a little different from other that type of anime. And you can’t see the story of following quintuplets in other anime.

Although this anime seems relaxing and funny, there are romance senses of the protagonist and the relationship between quintuplets. After watching the first season, fans will be curious about the one who is married from quintuplets and can’t guess one of the same five girls.
