Quintessential Quintuplets is based on a manga written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. The manga launched in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2017, and ended in February 2020. Kodansha US is releasing the manga in English, and describes the story as such:
Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: a high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?! At this rate, the sisters won’t graduate, so if he wants to get paid, Futaro must think of a plan to suit each of them … Which feels hopeless when five out of five of them think he’s a loser!– Kodansha US
