This time, they're looking back at you adorably!
In December last year, pre-orders for life-sized newly illustrated acrylic stands of The Quintessential Quintuplets went on sale, giving fans of the series a chance to pick up their favorite Nakano for just US$1,600. Now, to celebrate the release of The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie, a second set of life-sized acrylic stands have been put up for pre-order with a new design that features the girls in a dress looking back cutely.
Each of The Quintessential Quintuplets comes in at 187,000 yen per standee, or just shy of US$1,500 each, with no limit on how many you can buy of each girl, giving you the chance to make a classroom of Ninos. Or all of them if you wish, which will set you back 935,000 yen (around US$7,400), not bad for all the Nakano sisters together!
Pre-orders for the life-sized newly illustrated acrylic stands of The Quintessential Quintuplets are available until June 19 with shipping expected around the end of August. The standees range from 158 centimeters tall to 180 centimeters based on the pose and the manufacturing of each of the girls.
Online store HICUL, which is selling the life-sized Quins, is also releasing goods based on the newly drawn visuals for the life-sized The Quintessential Quintuplets at a more physically reasonable, and cost-appropriate, size. These goods include acrylic key chains, tapestries and even t-shirts.
With items available for each Nakano sister, you'll be able to decorate your Quintuplet shrine (we all have one!) with literally a life-sized cut down of your favorite girl and then proudly display the love you have for her in your heart on your chest.
The Quintessential Quintuplets Movie finishes the story that began in the anime series when it opened in Japanese theaters on May 20 with Masato Jinbo (CHAOS;CHILD) directing the film at Bilbury Animation Studios. Both the TV anime seasons of The Quintessential Quintuplets are available right here on Crunchyroll, which describes the series as such:
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!
