The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2 hops onto Japanese screens in January!
The easy-going fourth quintuplet Yotsuba Nakano was the headlining girl for this week's character trailer for the upcoming The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2. Last week's trailer saw history buff Miku march on, the week before that was feisty Nino, and the first of the character trailers featured the eldest sister Ichika. Only one more trailer remains next week before The Quintessential Quintuplets season 2 premieres in January.
Previously released visual:
The second season, titled The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬ (yes, that’s a double integral symbol) is scheduled to start broadcasting on TBS in Japan from January 2021, under the direction of Kaori (Yuyushiki) taking over from season one director Satoshi Kuwabara. The series is being produced at Bibury Animation Studio (Azur Lane: The Animation), with Keiichiro Ochi returning as the series composer from the first season.
The cast from the first season returns as the five quintuplets and male lead Futaro Uesugi. Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired and described it as:
Uesugi Fuutarou, a high school second-year from a poor family, receives a highly appealing offer to work part-time as a tutor... but his students turn out to be girls from his own class! What's more, they're quintuplets... and all five are beautiful, but happen to be problem students who have borderline grades and hate studying! Looks like his first assignment will be to win all the sisters' trust?! Every day is a wild party in this rom-com centering around the quintuplet sisters of the Nakano household!
