What is The Quintessential Quintuplets Anime? Plot Summary!

Has the Original Quintuplets Manga Ended?

The original Quintuplets manga ended with 14 total volumes, with series sales exceeding 20 million copies as of August 2023.

In addition to the 14 volumes, a “Volume 0” bonus chapter that ran in Weekly Shonen Magazine before serialization began was included in the Blu-ray & DVD release of season 1. Volume 0 was reprinted in color in the film Blu-ray & DVD release.

“Volume 14.5” was also distributed as a bonus for the Quintuplets film, containing an after story extra episode “Chapter 122+1 ‘The Quintuplets Can’t Divide a Secret into Five Equal Parts'” set after the manga finale, plus character profiles.

After Quintuplets ended, author Negi Haruba launched the unusual hero battle manga Ayakashi Triangle in Weekly Shonen Magazine, which is also getting an anime adaptation.

When Will The Quintuplets ∽ Air? What Is It About?

The newly announced anime The Quintuplets ∽ will air in September 2023 as a TV special after being revealed in production on April 1, 2023. The specific broadcast dates and channels are:

◆TBS Part 1: September 2, 2023 (Sat) 16:30~ Part 2: September 9, 2023 (Sat) 16:30~

◆BS11 September 10, 2023 (Sun) 22:00~ (Back-to-back part 1 and 2)

What Will The Quintuplets ∽ Cover?

The Quintuplets ∽ is planned to adapt original manga episodes not depicted in previous anime seasons, aimed at Quintuplets fans. Pronunciation-wise, the symbol “∽” in the title is silent, read as normal as “Go-Toubun no Hanayome.”

Untold manga stories include Chapter 38 “Confession in the Living Room” (Volume 5) where Ichika helps the daughter of her agency’s president, and Chapter 91 “An Eventless Summer Break” (Volume 11) where Futaro goes to the beach with his sister and classmates.

The June 2023 PV shows scenes from those chapters, plus Chapter 92’s pool scene shown in the Quintuplets film intro, and Nino yelling “I went overboard!” from Chapter 93. So it likely covers Chapters 38, 91-93.

Despite the “Summer Arc” card, Chapter 38 predates summer – it may be a flashback, or they could alter the timeline to summer.

Will The Quintuplets ∽ Anime Be Available for Online Streaming?

It is currently unknown if The Quintuplets ∽ will be available for online streaming. However, considering seasons 1 and 2 of the TV series are widely streamed, streaming is likely.

Especially Abema, which held a special birthday project streaming season 1, season 2, and two special events for free starting May 5, 2023, seems invested in Quintuplets – there are high hopes for streaming soon after the TV broadcast.

Is There No Quintuplets Season 3?

The Quintuplets anime adapted through the original manga’s finale in the film. While some episodes were not adapted, The Quintuplets ∽ TV special will portray unadapted chapters.

Therefore, most original chapters will be animated including ∽. A full season (about 12 episodes) of just remaining chapters seems difficult, so the likelihood of a season 3 is probably low.

However, Quintuplets remains popular – events like 10,000 attending an arena event in Yokohama and new anime/games in production. More standalone specials like ∽ or OVAs are very possible.

Could Post-Finale Stories Be Animated?

It would be difficult to make a TV series just from comic content, but some games feature original post-finale stories for the quintuplets. Anime based on those game plots has potential. Details on games with post-finale stories:

Works Depicting Post-Finale Stories

Volume 14.5 distributed with Quintuplets film tickets contains an extra episode after the finale.

The Quintessential Quintuplets ~Your Five Memories with Her~ game released June 2, 2022 for Nintendo Switch/PlayStation 4 continues the original anime/manga story.

The film showed the quintuplets planning a graduation trip but didn’t depict it. The game is an original story of their Okinawa graduation trip untold in the manga/anime.

The game has Futaro wanting to deepen their bonds through a kiss and long-distance relationship after graduation.

The 3rd adventure game The Quintessential Quintuplets ~My Five Promises with Her~ launches September 7, 2023. Said to be an original new story, it may cover post-finale events.

Which Volume Does Season 2 Leave Off in the Manga?

Season 2 of the anime covers through Chapter 86, the last chapter in Volume 10 of the manga. While some scenes are cut or changed from the manga, the overall story follows the original.

To continue the anime story in the manga, start from Volume 11. Volumes 11-14 are adapted in The Quintessential Quintuplets movie.


The Quintuplets manga ended in 14 volumes total. The anime adapted through the manga finale with season 2 and the 2022 film The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie. The Quintuplets ∽ TV special airing in theaters from July 14, 2023 animates unpublished manga episodes.

With ∽, almost all original chapters will be animated, so the likelihood of a season 3 TV series seems low. But considering the series’ popularity, more standalone specials or OVAs are very possible.

I will update this article with any new information like broadcast dates for The Quintuplets ∽ anime.
