Synopsis of Gotoubun no Hanayome
Fuutarou Uesugi is an excellent high school student, but he leads a difficult life. His distant personality and lonely nature have left him friendless, and his father is in debt, forcing his family to fight for survival. One day during lunch break, Uesugi argues with a transfer student who has claimed “her seat” from her, causing the two to dislike each other. That same day, he is presented with a golden opportunity to pay off his family's debt: a private tutoring job for the daughter of a wealthy family, with a salary five times the market price. He accepts the proposal, but is horrified to discover that the client, Itsuki Nakano, is the girl he faced earlier! After unsuccessfully trying to get Itsuki's approval, Uesugi discovers that his problems don't end there: Itsuki is actually a quintuplet, so in addition to her, she must also tutor her sisters: Miku, Yotsuba, Nino and Ichika. "That, despite the very real threat of failing, they want nothing to do with a tutor." However, his family's livelihood is at stake, so Uesugi forges on, steadfast in his determination to rid the sisters of their hate for studying and successfully lead them to graduation.
