                    Apart from all the reasons why you should watch it, the anime series contains only 12 episodes with no filler episodes. So you don’t need a strong commitment to watch this anime like One Piece (if you haven’t seen it click on One Piece). The ending was also good and emotional.

                       The anime opening starts with the five quintuplets calling the protagonist in their kawaii voice, what more does one want. The anime opening and the anime ost’s were loved by many anime fans and you will like it too. The animation is great and giving you the best watching experience.
