The anime adaptation of Negi Haruba’s shonen manga series The Quintessential Quintuplets is set to begin airing in January 2019.

You can now hear the song in a new teaser video released on the official PONY CANYON YouTube page below.

 

The song begins with the sisters calling out to the series protagonist Fūtarō Uesugi to wake up. It drops into a cute pop song where each sibling expresses their feelings towards Uesugi, from hate to love.

 

The TV edit version of the track will be available to listen to early on the anime music app ANiUTA on December 27. The song’s CD cover was also released and can be seen below.

The original manga has published over 1.5 million copies. With an early tease at the anime’s opening song the excitement is only set to increase amongst fans.
