Gotoubun no Hanayome (First Impression)
“One day, a poor high school second-year named Futaro Uesugi comes across a private tutoring gig with good pay. But his pupils are his classmates!! And they’re quintuplets!! And they’re all gorgeous girls, but they’re also troublemakers who hate to study and are on the verge of flunking out! And his first task is simply gaining the sisters’ trust?! Every day is a party! The curtain is rising on the Nakano quintuplets’ quirky romantic comedy with five times the cute!!” -Kodansha Comics
First off, just the voice acting cast alone was enough to get me to watch this somewhat cliche show!
Our male protagonist Uesugi Fuutarou is voiced by Matsuoka Yoshitsugu (Kirito – Sword Art Online, Bell Cranel – Danmachi, Sora – No Game No Life)
Then our five Heroines:
Nakano Itsuki is voiced by Minase Iori (Hestia – Danmachi, Yuki – GakkouGurashi, Rem – Re:Zero)
Nakano Nino is voiced by Taketatsu Ayana (Hotaru – Dagashi Kashi, Kotori – Date A Live, Koneko – Highschool DxD)
Nakano Itsuka is voiced by Hanazawa Kana (Onodera – Nisekoi, Shiemi – Blue Exorcist, Charlotte – Infinite Stratos)
Nakano Yotsuba is voiced by Sakura Ayane (Ochako – Boku no Hero Academia, Nao – Charlotte, Cocoa – Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu Ka?)
Nakano Miku is voiced by Itou Miku (coincidentally lol) – (Kokoro – Bang Dream, Narumi – ReKan!, She is also a member of the Seiyuu Unit StylipS)
So already it’s a god tier voice acting cast!
But moving on the anime itself! The art is what I would expect from a harem / comedy anime. While not amazing it’s still really good and enjoyable to watch. The scenario is actually quite interesting compared a lot of harem anime. I’m really excited to see what will be happening next!
If you like comedies and harem anime then I recommend this one, as I have a really good feeling about it! With a non-generic setting and interesting cast of characters, Gotoubun no Hanayome looks to be a contender for this Winter season!
