It’s been quite a while since the end of the manga written and illustrated by Negi Haruba, Gotoubun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets), and although the author has already moved on with a new serialization that apparently already has an anime adaptation in production, fans are still digging through his romantic comedy for new details of interest. While Gotoubun no Hanayome He stood out for offering not two, not three, but five contenders for the protagonist’s love, causing endless wars on social networks, It seems that one of the production material books of the franchise decided to reveal a rather big curiosity: the design of the mother of Futaro Uesugi, the protagonist.
Little is known about “Mrs. Uesugi” both within the series and in the original manga, considering the fact that she passed away long before the events of the story began, when Futaro was six years old. However, something confirmed is the fact that he constantly mistreated little Futaro and that he treated a lost girl on the street better than his own son. Finally, her design bears a strong resemblance to Rena Nakano, the mother of the Nakano Quintuplets., except the difference in hair color. Regarding this, the author never explained if this was intentional. By the way, let’s not forget that he wears the “hairstyle of death”…
