An enjoyable ride.

Contrary to many popular beliefs, I don't think the ending of 5-Toubun no Hanayome was bad. The people complaining make me think that they are only mad because their favorite girl didn't win, which isn't fair. Even I was rooting for someone else, but I guess such is life.

This manga doesn't do anything new, even I who has never read a harem manga before can understand that, but for a work to be successful it's not necessary to be a path-breaking product, you just need to make us care for the characters, and I believe the Mangaka was successful in doing so. The series is named so for the Quintuplets, and each one of them was atleast an interesting character, although only 2 got good character development throughout the series, which is a bummer. The main character also was good enough, who had his own motives and quirks, however silly, and wasn't a bland cardboard harem protagonist. He actively goes out of his way to care for the sisters, and you can tell that he isn't in it just to smash. It is fun to see the relationship between MC and the sisters grow throughout the series for the most part, and if you're looking for something light and enjoyable to read, Go-toubun no Hanayome won't be the worst thing to chose.

Now onto some spoiler-ridden rant:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As I said, I was satisfied with character development of only 2 sisters, and they're Nino and Miku. You hate Nino at the beginning, but she goes through a good-enough growth arc to become an entertaining character. Miku was always good, but she works on herself and gets more confident throughout the series. Seeing her grow was heart-warming.

Now onto the girl that I was actually rooting for, Itsuki, she started out as a likeable character at the beginning, but stops being of any relevance to the plot at one point. Her arc was the worst of all. I mean, I'm happy that she goes on to follow her dream, but the Mangaka could have handled that in some more interesting way. Instead we get something that feels like filler. If her arc was done in a better way, I'd have given this series an 8 or 9. Perhaps that is my bias.

If you have interesting characters, you're bound to have bland/un-likeable ones too. Ichika was the one I was least interested in seeing, as there was never a clear direction as to what the Mangaka wanted to do with her. Sometimes she is the caring big sister, sometimes the cunning brat, and sometimes the shy tsundere. I honestly wouldn't have cared if she wasn't there in the first place. And then we have Yotsuba. She might be the least popular one, and I can see why. Jonathon Joestar is also the least popular Jojo. It's because people don't like bland do-gooders. They prefer tsunderes and cute waifu-material girls in harem, and Yotsuba was a generic good girl character in the story. I understand if you end up not liking her, but I place her above Ichika as I don't mind characters like her. She has spine, and can stand up for herself and make her own choices. In the later chapters we get some chapters from her perspective which was cool.

I also like the character of the sisters' dad. It's a shame the dynamic of MC and Quintuplet's fathers wasn't developed further and stayed practically the same. You'd also see the mysterious girl "Remi" appear throughout the series, and although the way it was handled wasn't perfect, it could have been much worse.
IMO the series was at its peak when Futarou was teaching the sisters for the tests, and then that aspect got lost in favor of high school festivals, which is a shame. there are too many festivals in anime world for me to care about. Every high school series supposedly has one. The Mangaka ditched something which had a touch of uniqueness in favor of generic stuff, which was a bad direction for the Manga.


Well that's it from my side. Thanks for reading

I was hooked from page 1. I really liked all of the characters, even the male lead. This author did a really good job with the mystery aspect. He kept introducing minor curveballs. I thought this was a really well-done unique harem manga.

I loved the ending. My choice of girl did not win, but I'm not even mad. After everything wrapped up, I'm kind of glad my choice didn't win.

Wasted Potential

5toubun is an exercise in a mangaka taking a good work and then going too far and running it into the ground in doing so.
The ending and general romance wrap-up of this manga has been discussed to death and has many well known flaws. So I am going to all but ignore it as much as I can for this review.

The Quintuplet novelty is used well for about the first 1/2 - 2/3s of the manga. The female leads often disguise themselves as one another and toy with and manipulate the male lead for various reasons. This mind-games portion of the manga is its strongest suit early on. It was done well and left the readers guessing and second guessing throughout. The Male MC, a boy by the name of Fuutarou, is very active and intelligent in this portion. He keeps up and is often ahead of the girls playing with him. Its probably one of the better romance manga of the past decade throughout this.

Unfortunately this is not true of the latter portion of the manga. Fuutarou loses that guile and intelligence and becomes more and more of a blank slate as the story continues. Whatever personality and active participation in the plot he has is slowly stripped away until he becomes another ignorant harem protagonist.
More importantly than this, as few are actually reading for Fuutarou, is that the mind-games and the romance in general becomes overly convoluted and simply annoying to follow. The author begins introducing fake-outs, switcheroos, and other assorted subversions of lesser and lesser quality until it gets to the point where the comic becomes less of an interesting story to follow and more of an example of someone trying to write more than they are capable of. Its a chore to read and more interesting for its absurdity than any actual developments that happen.

Had this manga ended before the author tried to play 500IQ mind-games with a 200IQ deck it would have been a very good read. Instead it becomes a unintentional comedy of errors that overstayed its welcome.

A very fun ride, nice art and character design (even with all the obligatory clichès a story like this has)

All in all, a solid 8 in my book. Fluent story, flashbacks put at a good pacing and a reasonable behaviour of MC and cast in general. The only thing, in my opinion, is that the ending is a bit "watered down", I wouldn't know how to put it in other terms, and not entirely satisfying

(but probably because I shipped another girl, still it was somewhat awkward.)

Defies (Expected) Traditions

Rating: 9.0 / 10.0
PREFACE: I have finished reading all the chapters. SPOILERS are ahead but they should already be hidden.

HARUBA Negi takes us on a journey through a path filled with bumps, holes, scrambles (lol), sudden u-turns, unpredictable twists, confusing signs, questionable routes, etc. through his story telling. It was quite thrilling. It was very enticing. It definitely gave me a brain-ache, too. He tells a rom-com harem love story in a way that defies our pre-supposition of our run-off-the-mill 'harem' genred mangas.

I felt as if he made some screw-ups and patch-ups along the way, which I think should be more forgivable since it is a weekly manga.

Character development was very enjoyable from the start until the end.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
HARUBA Negi shatters several stereotypes of the typical harem manga through his characters. Uesugi Fūtarō is not your typical dense or well-liked male protagonists, but a socially awkward nerd with a not very likeable personality. Itsuki, despite being the first girl, actually ends up being the only one out of the 5 who doesn't harbour a relatively strong affection for Fūtarō and ends up having a supporting role throughout up til the end, not to mention she was the only one not to share a kiss with Fūtarō. Miku who seemingly took a head start as the strongest contender did not win in the end, however, the typical ursurper characters, i.e. Nino and Ichika, did not as well. Nino, went from hostile to tsun-tsun dere-dere, but proactively being upfront with her feelings and became the very first one to confess to Fūtarō's face. The genki type Yotsuba's back story was then revealed and turns out to be the one who wins Fūtarō's affection and marries him by the end. The unexpected choice of having the genki type character winning the harem race while simultaneously having the first girl as purely a support type clearly showcases how unorthodox Negi is as an author of such a genre. At first, I thought it was unfair as to why Itsuki was the only one left out from having strong love feelings towards Fūtarō, but then I came to terms with it after realising Negi's intentions with the characters' roles. When Ichika turned a bit yandere and sabotage-minded, I was actually disappointed at this choice. I guess Negi's intention was to introduce significant drama content without involving additional characters, but nevertheless I felt appalled when she was chosen by Negi to be given such roles because she was actually my favourite character.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Many readers are mad because of the choices that HARUBA Negi has made, but the way I see it is that's just how good he is at making such lovable characters entangled in an interesting plot which lead to presenting an unorthodox conclusion.

I haven't had internal screams and thrills in a long time from reading mangas with genres such as this one. It was a breath of fresh air.

The best harem manga out there

Rating: 8.0 / 10.0
The soul of harem manga is guessing who will be the end girl.
From love hina to Ichigo100 and then Nisekoi are all the same.

And wow this manga did that so well through hints and baits and switches

Now that this manga come to end soon
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and the best girl won at the end

I can only reminiscence the pleasure from week to week digging hints and theorized new stuff
Though the pace is a bit of in the end, but I prefer that over dragging like it's predecessor

I believe other has already praise the characterization and plot
Overall this a top harem manga that has good end girl guessing
And completed with likeable character and sensible plot

It's a very good harem romcom, with the right mix of good art, cute interesting girls, and slice of life drama.
The plus is that the mc is the "good" kind of dense, very focused and strong willed, and neither a pervert nor having nose bleeds every panel, which makes him interesting and actually admirable as a character. He's a study nerd not interested in love, mature and sometime funny.

"The characters are sort of trope-y and the story isn't exactly the most original out there, but its great art and just the fact that it's a harem manga that focuses more on character relationships rather than fanservice has got me interested."

>JDefenseAnime
1-103. 8/10 so far. I’ve really enjoyed this whole ride so far, and have had my order of the girls change around quite a bit. The art is consistently good and the full page spreads always look fantastic. I think Fuutarou is a good protagonist and I’m glad he not only recognizes what’s going on, but occasionally acts on it. The manga has done a fantastic job of developing Nino in particular, but also Miku and Ichika to an extent. I really like Itsuki and Fuutaro’s chemistry, even if she hasn’t had as much development as the other girls, and Yotsuba I feel has unfortunately not gotten as much attention as she deserves. I’m actually kind of surprised that we’re 100+ chapters in and it’s still kind of hard to tell who is the eventual winner.
