A high school romantic comedy with five times the cute girls! A high school boy must work part-time to help five sisters study so they can graduate, but the only thing these quintuplets have in common is that they all hate studying!


Five girls who want to do anything but study, and their tutor: A high school boy who’s got book smarts and not much else. Futaro Uesugi took the tutoring gig because he was desperate for cash, but when his students—the five beautiful daughters of a wealthy businessman—find five times the excuses to slack off, what can he do?! At this rate, the sisters won’t graduate, so if he wants to get paid, Futaro must think of a plan to suit each of them…Which feels hopeless when five out of five of them think he’s a loser!

Story Locale: Modern Japan

Series Overview: Futaro Uesugi is a second-year in high school, scraping to get by and pay off his family’s debt. The only thing he can do is study, so when Futaro receives a part-time job offer to tutor the five daughters of a wealthy businessman, he can’t pass it up. Little does he know, these five beautiful sisters are quintuplets, but the only thing they have in common…is that they’re all terrible at studying! At this rate, the sisters can’t graduate, and Futaro must think of a plan that suits each of them—which feels hopeless when five-out-of-five of these girls think he’s a loser!

A classic harem comedy that surrounds a serious boy with a variety of feckless girls, like Love Hina with quintuplets!

Digital-first release of this series in June 2018 is building early buzz.

Five volumes and ongoing in Japan.

Considered a prime candidate for future licensing.

Ages 16 and up for nonexplicit nudity and teen hijinks.
