The Quintessential Quintuplets is based on the Japanese Shōnen manga series of the same name by Negi Haruba and is produced by Bibury Animation Studios for the second season of the anime series.
The Quintessential Quintuplets revolves around Futaro Uesugi being the tutor of the quintuplets Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano who were all performing poorly in academics.
The Nakano quintuplets belong to a rich family and Futaro was hired to be the private tutor of the sisters as he is academically gifted despite having a difficult life of losing his mother, debt-ridden father, and no friends in school or outside of his home.
The quintuplets all have no interest in studying making them struggle in school and all have different personalities. Futaro's tenacity and diligence pay as he convinces each quintuplet little by little to accept him and improve their academic performance.
Throughout the anime series, Futaro, later on, develops special relationships with each girl and in a flashforward, a revelation is seen that he will eventually be marrying one of the five girls but the identity as to who of them is not given.

The stepfather of the quintuplets, Maruo, left the restaurant threatening Itsuki and Yotsuba with his final warning that they may be transferring schools if they do not pass the exam. Futaro approaches them to assure them that he will ensure that this will not happen and that all of them would pass the upcoming finals.
Given that there are only two months lefts, the girls devoted themselves to studying. Itsuki seems to have made up her mind to be a teacher like her mother. Since Valentine’s day is nearing, Miku tries to learn to perfect a chocolate recipe and kept feeding Futaro her experiment recipe. Of all the sisters, Miku seems to be the fiercest to get the attention of Futaro.
Yotsuba, on the other hand, realizes that each of them has a strength in a specific subject. Being the only one who didn’t pass an exam that all of them took again, helped her uplift her spirit that she could be helpful to her sisters and improve on her own studies.
When the results came out, all of them seems to pass the exam but Nino is not present at the celebration. The episode ends with Futaro fetching Nino.
