The quintuplets are also furious about having a tutor like Futaro and want his immediate resignation.

The Quintessential Quintuplets Production Committee”

A trailer has been released by AnimeTV for the Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2.

It is being said that season 2 of the anime will be strongly dealing with Fuatro falling in love with one of the quints. Futaro starts dreaming about a girl where he meets her on a school field trip to Kyoto. Her name was Rena(similar to his deceased mother’s name, Reina). Itsuki, one of the quints, once asked him why he studies so hard. He replied by saying that it was this girl in his dreams who motivated him to study hard.

Futaro only knows about Rena as The Girl from the Photograph. He had observed Rena buying five charms for some odd reason during the field trip. To this Itsuki cites that once she also pulled out an old charm that she either bought or was given five years that came from Kyoto. This whole mess seems to have startled Kyoto as to Itsuki being that girl.

Problems start getting into Futaro’s life as he gradually gets close to the quints. Things go so far that two sisters Nino and Itsuki get into a quarrel and slap each other. Both of them flee the house and it falls upon Futaro to solve the matter and bring them home. He tries his best to reconcile but the matter turns worse. Itsuki turns up in Futaro’s house and starts living in it and won’t return until the other quint apologizes.

At this moment, Rena enters Futaro’s life for a brief period and asks him how his life is going. He then describes his issues to her to which Rena takes back her photograph which was with Futaro and bade him goodbye forever. Futaro was shocked by the way he was dumped in water but buckles up and gets down to solve the problems among the quints.

The mysterious girl in Futaro’s dreams who goes by the name of Rena.

After he solves their matter and brings the quints back together, he realizes that he never should’ve taken the job of a tutor in that house and hence decides to resign from the job. He talks to their father and says that he is incompetent to fulfill the role of a tutor but also lashes out at the father for being a lousy and irresponsible parent who couldn’t look after the quints properly. The father of the quints gets infuriated at this blame and banishes Futaro from the house forever.

Futaro will ultimately marry one of the quints.

The quints miss him terribly but the matter of utmost importance is ahead as the final exams are knocking on the door. But this time it isn’t the test of academics. It is the test of love. Three of the quints have already fallen for Futaro and their mind games will drive Futaro crazy during a family visit to a hot spring resort. Events will mount up to a confession from one of the quints and will bring a moment where Futaro will realize that he had begun falling in love with one of the quints. But for that to take place, you have to keep an eye out for The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2.

The third season is based on the 9th, 10th, and 11th volumes of the novel series. The most anticipated arc that fans are most eager to see in season 3 is the Xena Arc.
