Manga Series ‘The Quintessential Quintuplets’ Gets Exhibition in Ikebukruo
An exhibition centred on the hugely popular Weekly Shonen Magazine manga series The Quintessential Quintuplets by Negi Haruba is set to take place on the 4th floor of the Ikebukuro Sunshine City World Important Mart building from August 17 to September 1 this year.
Its theme is “an exhibition that both guys and girls can enjoy.” Though the series is serialised in a magazine aimed at males, it enjoys huge support from female readers. The anime’s first season ran from January to March this year which bolstered the fan base on both sides. It has become the most read romance series serialised in a male magazine by women.
Girls have taken to social media to express their love for the series, with some saying how the worries the quintuplets experience and their growth overlaps with their own. Others have described how cute the heroines are even from a female perspective.
The exhibition will house a plethora of illustrations, including hand drawn pictures by Negi Haruba, unfinished and completed illustrations, as well as outfit displays and more. Original merchandise will also be sold.
If you’re a fan of the quintuplets and are in Tokyo in August then be sure to drop by the exhibition.
The Quintessential Quintuplets Exhibition
Locations: Ikebukuro Sunshine City World Important Mart Building Floor 4F (3-1-1 Higashi-Ikebukuro, Toshima Ward, Tokyo)

The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬ OP and ED Themes Released Digitally
The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬, the second season of the popular TV anime series The Quintessential Quintuplets, began airing on January 8, 2021. The full-size versions of the opening and ending themes, titled Gotōbun no Katachi and Hatsukoi, are now available on music streaming and download services in Japan.
Below are comments from the main voice cast for the five sisters about the second season which were released after the airing of the first episode. Comments are translated by MMN.
Ichika (voiced by Kana Hanazawa), Nino (Ayana Taketatsu), Miku (Miku Itō), Yotsuba (Ayane Sakura) and Itsuki (Inori Minase)
Kana Hanazawa (Voices: Ichika Nakano) | Comment
“After checking out the first episode, I can’t help but want to see the second episode already. There are so many elements I’m interested in, and like with the first season it leaves you wondering who Futaro will end up with. Ichika plays a particularly important part in this second season, so I hope you watch over her.”
Ayana Taketatsu (Voices: Nino Nakano) | Comment
“I felt a little restless when season two finally started. But [the sisters] are going to fight since they all think mutually. I thought how clumsy they really are when voicing [my character]. But I really felt the connection between the five girls, and I hope everyone watches over them warmly until everything’s fixed. You’ll see that this is something that will cause Nino to change.”
Miku Itō (Voices: Miku Nakano) | Comment
“The second season shows the five sisters growing up. Their appearances change really suddenly, as do their general feelings, dreams, and feelings towards Futaro. Lots of different things. There’s also some realistic parts so please look forward to them.”
Ayane Sakura (Voices: Yotsuba Nakano) | Comment
“It’s a continuation from season one and brings a whole new atmosphere for people to experience. And since it’s the second half [of the story], the characters themselves have changed a little too. I hope everyone enjoys the human aspects of the series, both the positive and negative things.”
Inori Minase (Voices: Itsuki Nakano) | Comment
“There’s a riddle going into the second season which speaks of an incident that happened with Futaro five years ago in Kyoto that he can’t forget, and it questions which of the sisters was involved. But how does Futaro feel at seeing that girl again, with all the memories coming back? This is something I want people to pay attention to. The series follows not only the siblings’ growth, but considers Futaro’s decision and what he’s determined on. I hope everyone supports Futaro’s growth too.”

It has been announced that the opening and ending themes for the upcoming TV anime series The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬, which will serve as the second season of The Quintessential Quintuplets, will be performed by the five Nakano sisters who are the main characters of the series: Ichika (voiced by Kana Hanazawa), Nino (Ayana Taketatsu), Miku (Miku Itō), Yotsuba (Ayane Sakura) and Itsuki (Inori Minase).
The opening theme is entitled Gotobun no Katachi (‘The Shape of Quintuplets’) and follows series protagonist Futaro Uesugi’s feelings from the first season leading into his realisation of love in the second season. It was written, composed, and arranged by Masahiro Takeda.
The ending theme is titled Hatsukoi (‘Puppy Love’ or ‘First Love’). It’s a ballad that sings about the sings you come to learn and realise after falling in love. It was written by Aira Yuki, composed by Art Neko, and arranged by Shuho Mitani.
The full version of the opening theme will be released two days after the second season’s first episode airs on January 9, 2021. The ending theme will be released on the same day as the season airs on January 7, 2021.
Hear part of the opening theme on Pony Canyon’s official YouTube channel below:
Below are comments from the main cast of the Nakano siblings translated by MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON.
Ichika Nakano (Voiced by: Kana Hanazawa)
“I’m sure there are a lot of you who have read the manga and can picture where the story is going to go. You’ll be seeing even more of the sisters this season, and seeing them all together. The first season went down the path of focusing on each individual character, but this time they’ll all be together in the same scenes, and each with their own thoughts and feelings, so there won’t be many times where they haven’t talked about something. Basically, you’ll be spending a lot of time with the sisters. I hope people will be able to see their bond with each other, but each of them think differently, so I’d like for people to watch the situations bit by bit and enjoy their changes.”
Nino Nakano (Voiced by: Ayana Taketatsu)
“The second season was originally meant to start in October 2020, but production got pushed back because of the coronavirus, so now it’ll begin in January. You’ve all waited a really long time for this, so everyone in the staff is pouring their strength into it, as are we, the cast, into the voice recording, especially since we can’t all be together. I think because of that we’ve been able to make something really wonderful. All the characters in the promo video are super cute! I got to see Nino-chan’s promo video too. I think that sparkle in her eye when she shows her determination was really incredible. The new director is female, so she was really able to add her female perspective to the series, small details lke how the girls move and their cuteness. I’d love it if you all enjoyed those things too. Look forward to when it airs!”
Miku Nakano (Voiced by: Miku Ito)
“To everybody who has been waiting for it: it’s finally here! Like all of you, I’ve been wanting season two to hurry too, when we were recording, and now too while we’re waiting for it to start, so I’m super happy we’re able to deliver it now. I feel really grateful. Each of the five sisters have levelled up in the second season. I feel like their feelings towards Futaro really comes through, as do their personalities, so please look forward to it.”
Yotsuba Nakano (Voiced by: Ayane Sakura)
“If you’re waiting for season two, that means you’ve already seen season one, right? I’m sure you had a hunch how the first season was going to go, but in season two, you’ll really get to see the siblings battle it out! But it really has a lot of different elements, like how this is a story of the sisters’ bonds with each other, and how it’s become popular as a story about family. It introduces new staffs, although it has a different tone to it from the first season, so hope those who have read the manga will think about how that tone from the manga will translate into animation as they wait for it to be released.”
Itsuki Nakano (Voiced by: Inori Minase)
“Season two is finally going to air. I think it’s a fitting and gorgeous start for 2021. There will also be a level of sadness that wasn’t in the first season, like how your chest hurts as a result of love, and coming to dislike yourself a little. The five of them have swung from Futaro until now, and the story of season two will explore where they are going with that. I hope you all see from Futaro’s perspective and show your love The Quintessential Quintuplets again. We will work hard so that you all look forward to the series each week!”
