If you’re into rom-coms, it is more than likely that you’ve heard of The Quintessential Quintuplets. It is a rather famous rom-com series and all things considered, it is actually pretty damn good. The 2nd season didn’t land with me as much as the first one but this is a good example of ‘harem done right’ in my opinion.
The Quintessential Quintuplets anime announced a new project a while back. We recently learned that this project is a special episode and we got more details regarding it. So welcome back to another news article. And today let’s talk about this special episode. As always the news comes first and I will save my thoughts for later on.
What do we know about The Quintessential Quintuplets special?
As I said earlier, this special was just announced as a ‘new anime project’ back in the day. Now we know that it is a special episode and will be made by Shaft, which is interesting. The special will be directed by Yuikihiro Miyamoto; yes, the same person who did Madoka and Fate/Extra. And Keiichiro Oochi returns to handle the series composition.
The special will air in the summer season but it will have an ‘early’ screening in theatres starting from July 14th for 3 weeks. All 5 female lead cast members of the series will be coming together to perform the opening and ending themes for this special. We have no info on the story content for this as of yet. So let’s move on to
The Quintessential Quintuplets is being made by Shaft Studios?! What? Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to see this combo. Man, this special episode has some series budget, they got a really good director and the studio is amazing too. Curious to see how Shaft adds their signature weirdness to this anime. You know cause one thing I love about Shaft is that you cannot imagine their works without Shaft’s signature exaggeration.
I think this special might be quite a bit different from what we usually expect from The Quintessential Quintuplets as Shaft is involved this time. I usually don’t cover specials but this one looks very interesting. So yeah, I am quite a bit excited about it thanks to Shaft and Miyamoto.
That is all for now though. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below. I think that this special episode will be pretty cool and I look forward to it. With that said though, I will take my leave here. See ya!
