Futaro and his quintuplet students are back in season two of this light-hearted romantic comedy. Episode 1 begins right where season one ended, with Futaro Uesugi in the hospital, sick with a fever from being out in the cold with the sisters, helping them in various ways. As they go to visit him, several flashback scenes reveal a younger Futaro spending time with a girl that changed his life, and for whom he’s been looking. She looks like one of the sisters, but he isn’t sure if she is one of them and if so, which one she is! None of the quintuplets remember him from when they were children, so the mystery has not been solved. The sister’s grades haven’t improved either, so Futaro has a lot of work to do to get these girls where they need to be academically!
I liked that this season continues along with the previous story. The animation is still good, and the characters are memorable and funny. I hope they don’t spend a lot of time trying to find out who the mystery girl is, but instead move onto new plot twists or making the drama more intense as so far, I don’t feel there’s any pressure on the relationships between them. I hope this doesn’t become a harem where all five girls are fighting for Futaro’s attention or they are just trying to date him at the same time either. I will be watching this new season for sure, let us know what you thought of the first episode and if you’re looking forward to this one.
