On the official site for the anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Negi Haruba, Gotoubun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets), a new promotional video for the franchise film was released, celebrating its release in an additional 91 theaters starting July 29. However, no plans have yet been announced to release it in theaters in the rest of the world.
The film opened on May 20 in theaters in Japan, racking up more than 1.5 million tickets sold and more than 2 billion yen (over 14.57 million US dollars) in profits. Finally, the new visual shows the quintuplets in their school outfits, which, in fact, have rarely been seen in promotional materials lately.
On the other hand, Negi Haruba published the manga in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine from the publisher Kodansha between August 2017 and February 2020, with a total of fourteen compilation volumes. The work inspired two anime seasons and a movie that ended the story.
- kaori fujita (Endro~!, Miira no Kaikata, Yuyushiki) was in charge of directing the second season at the studios Bibury Animation Studiosreplacing Satoshi Kuwabara already studies Tezuka Productions.
- Keiichirou Ouchi (Adachi to Shimamura, Kanojo mo Kanojo, Machikado Mazoku) was in charge of writing and supervising the scripts.
- Masato Katsumata (Azur Lane, Fate/stay night Movie: Heaven’s Feel – I. Presage Flower) was in charge of character design and animation direction.

Dizzying days go by, and before you know it, it’s the eve of the school festival.
Fuutarou is encouraged by Itsuki’s decision not to give up, and searches for answers to Nino’s feelings, Miku’s determination, and his feelings for Ichika, Yotsuba, and Itsuki. With each of them having their own thoughts and feelings, the first day of the school festival, the last event of his high school life, finally began. “Come to the classroom at 3:00 p.m., the first day of the school festival.” The quintuplets gather in the classroom and Fuutarou finally informs them that he will make a decision…
