Who Is Gonna Be Fuutarou’s Bride in Gotoubun no Hanayome?

Who Is Gonna Be Fuutarou’s Bride in Gotoubun no Hanayome?

Hello everyone and welcome to our place! 🙂

Today we will be talking about Gotoubun no Hanayome which is the Anime with the most alternative titles I ever saw. You can call it 5-toubun no Hanayome, The Five Wedded Brides, The Quintessential Quintuplets and you even have that in some places you will find Go-toubun no Hanayome. Since MAL calls it by the first name, I will be addressing this Anime with that name… Really, how the hell does an Anime show have so many freaking games?

Gotoubun no Hanayome Fuutarou Uesugi funny

The story is about a poor highschooler student whose family is under a lot of debt. Fuutarou Uesugi is an intelligent guy who does not mingle with anyone with perfect scores. One day, a transfer student girl sits with him for lunch, something that never happens. They start their relationship in a bad manner, but, after Fuutarou finds out that the road to take out his family out of debt is by giving that same girl tutoring, he tries to get in good terms with her.

But, something that he was not expecting is that he also has to tutor all of her 4 siblings. More than that, these 5 girls, although different (physically and psychological) are quintuplets! Fuutarou now has the job of making these girls get good grades when, just last year, all of them were almost failing.

It’s a Harem!

If you weren’t able to get that from the synopsis… Gotoubun no Hanayome is a harem! Or at least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s going to develop to. What other reason would we have a story where a guy has to spend his time with 5 beautiful women in their house?

To be honest, the episode did not give me much to make me interested or excited. Truth is, it seems to be the generic harem where the main cause for them to be together is pretty basic… We have Itsuki, IchikaMiku, Nino, and Yotsuba Nanako. All of them represent a different personality. I wouldn’t say that they fall into some kind of stereotype. It’s true they do have some of the troupes, but they don’t seem to be your typical generic girls, having a little more to add than just the said stereotype.

For me, that is a good thing! However, I have to say that the first episode was not that much of interest. The episode was all about presenting the characters and the setting which made it in a somewhat good manner and pace. However, for now, what I have to say is that I don’t really have strong feelings about this one. Neither good or bad.

On one hand, the funny scenes were not that funny. On the other hand, the more serious and “cute” scenes didn’t really reach my feelings. So, what I have to say is that I’m gonna need a little more time until I decide if this is an Anime worth mine (and your) while.

5 Girls, 1 Bride

Gotoubun no Hanayome bride

Truth is, the story seems to be quite predictable… I’m pretty sure Itsuki is the one who is going to be Fuutarou’s bride in the future. I mean, she is the one who meets him first and she is the one who, right from the bat, gets to know Fuutarou (and his struggles) better. To have this kind of development it’s because she will be the one more important to the story and, therefore, going to be the one marrying him.

So, with a harem setting which is nothing that you could call new, and a plotline easy to understand what is gonna happen next, I think Gotoubun no Hanayome quality will be a lot about the character evolution and relationships that is gonna develop. All the rest seems to be pretty forgettable so far.

Also, for the ones who like fanservice (which is something harems usually give), I have to say that there were not many scenes during episode 1 worth your while…

Nevertheless, it is still episode 1 and there are still many things that can happen! Let’s hope those things will bring quality up and not lower 😀

  1. Though i may have a theory but theory is just a theory, in the manga there some short pages of fuutarou’s wedding and i only saw 1 one of the quintuplets wearing the brides gown but didnt see the other 4 or any presence of the other 4 which leads to this crap. I think fuutarou loves itsuki out of the 4, but she has suffered from something awful like an accident or a disease which leads the other sisters to lend their organs to itsuki, thinking that its for fuutarou and itsuki. I kinda think 1 body but different organs which in the manga miku said “im just the 20% and so are the others,” . So in the end of this theory the other 4 sisters may have sacrificed their lives to their sister and the guy they love, thinking about this makes me kinda sad, if i can please dont make it happen, it will just give a cardiac arrest

    1. Damn! I mean, that’s just so dark… But, yet, so freaking good! I mean, I would prefer not because I’m falling in love with each one of the girls. But, yet, that would be an awesome plot twist! So… Maybe not for this one, but I would love to see that happen in an Anime story xD

  2. Everyone says that miku is will be the bride. But for me nino will be his bride. Because everyone will never expect it I know that nino is futaro’s first love

  3. If you look carefully on episode 3 on last part if you hear the sound the reason of that sound is because of the question he read a picture is better than a thousand of words

  4. Based on what I have observed so far, it might be Ichika. The bride on the short panels of Fuutarou’s marriage, the bride has earrings, so she just might be her. Also, she may have been the one who kissed Fuutarou on that Bell of Vows incident because she was interrupted during her first attempt before pushing fuutarou to the sea.
    Nino and Itsuki are also suspects to be the “bride”. On ch.75, Itsuki told Fuutarou(status:Sleep) something that might reveal some hidden truths about Itsuki. Also, amongst the quintuplets, she’s the only one who knows Fuutarou’s home address, some of her activities are unknown, and most likely the one who met Fuutarou 5 yrs ago and the “Rena”(the quintuplets’ mother’s name) who approached him after the fight with Itsuki and Nino broke out. The most relevant part is that she’s the first one who met the protagonist.
    Lastly, for Nino, considering that she’s the most aggressive and straightforward, she has quite a high chance to actually win Fuutarou. If she also has earrings like the “bride”, then she might actually be the one.
    (I’m basing on the manga here.)

    1. Damn! That’s a great and throughout theory!!! I’m not following the manga, just the anime, so it’s nice to see someone who has more entail on this than me, coming up with such a nice theory eheh

      Though, I think that the earrings do not really give away much… For example, it can be the 1 thing borrowed (I’m not sure if the Japanese actually follow tis tradition though). But, if we think a little bit, the bride will probably have itens referring to all the characters 😛

      Although I would prefer to be Ichika, I still believe that Itsuki is going to be the one… When it comes to a romantic Anime, she has the perfect character attitude that will end up with the main character in the end, if you know what I mean! 😛

      Thanks for the comment 🙂

  5. Indeed. According to the Harem Guidebook:”The 1st Heroine is the Main Heroine”. I prefer Nino, but of course, Itsuki will most likely be the chosen one. And if you don’t like cliffhangers(of anime), I recommend reading the manga. Ciao!

  6. well there is the thing in the manga where the quintuplets played a guess who game on fuutarou kun he talks to the girl’s grandpa and he said that you can tell them apart by love and the first one that he gets right was miku

  7. And also that itsuki or “Rena” broke fuutarou kuns heart by saying goodbye and fuutarou also said that it wasnt love but more like gratitude

  8. I believe it will be Miku mainly because her feels were focused on the most and with the fact that she recognized him with blond hair and remembered meeting a kid when she was little with blond hair. Honestly I couldn’t care less about the other girls, if it isn’t her then I’d have to say the one with short pink hair (forgot her name sorry). But there is one thing I’d like to know… is there only 12 episodes of the anime for now? Will there be more or am I just suppose to guess who ends up marrying him? To me that’s kinda a let down if that’s the case. If anyone could tell me I’d appreciate it!!

  9. In my opinion it’s gotta be Nino
    First of all she said that she would have earrings when she is gonna get married
    And she has the ribbon on the side of her head since all the sisters has some accessories (except ichika) that differentiate them from each other
    So it must be nino and they didn’t change their hair color
    Based on the anime

    1. Nino saw Futa’s pic back when he was a kid blonde at certain anime episode, she only say “it’s her type”
      she does not recognize the kid in the pic.

  10. Miku! Hands down… No questions ask! Final! I mean if you really listen to the manga and the final episode of the anime on the future wedding part… You tell by the color of the hair of that bride… it’s basically the same as Miku! ?

  11. after watching the anime..didnt read the next manga yet… i think its gonna be itsuki,nino, and miku.. itsuki why she the one fuutarou met first and itsuki always in the middle out in the 5 sister.. nino, its because of the earing in the last episode. the bride wearing a earing.. and nino said in the past episode that shes not gonna pierce her ear when the time is right and lastly miku, miku is realy cute,and she said that she gonna win and want fuutarou all to herself so itsuki still have the highest chance…>_

  12. Well my anime instinct tells me that it has to be itsuki cause the scenario looks kind a similar to nisekoi ( as chitoge was chosen) . And I also really do ship them a lot!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I dont think itll be Yotsuba in the anime. The girl who was foreshadowed in the first episode and the last ep of season 1, differs from Yotsuba’s hair color to personality. Idk just my opinion Yotsu’s hair is brownish yellow and the one shown was a quint with a shade of red. And the bride’s smile was gentle, affectionate, thankful – so im saying she might be someone who thought had lost the battle. The eyes were slowly moved as well, giving her gestures a smooth and gentle flow. The slanted hair also gives me hope for Miku. So Im guessing it might be one in the three: Itsuki, Miku, Nino, with Itsuki having the highest chances. And if we’re taking the body language route, might just be Miku, hopefully xD.

    Ive read the manga and got those post anime blues, worsened by the fact that Miku lost. She plans to skip college and enter culinary school just to cook for Fuutarou. Come on!
