Author Chapter 99 (5Toubun no Hanayome)

@NamelessGent So true. I wish it would be as brave as some of the late 90s early 00s series were, or at least as Nisekoi was. But I can't rule out the disappointment that was Umi no Misaki, which would leave a real bad aftertaste.

@NamelessGent This chapter doesn't really point in the direction of a harem ending everyone is overreacting to that sentence but if it did how have you missed that plenty readers want that ending?

Repost from my reddit...

So after reading the a/nonymous version... does it seem clearer now??

Fuutarou says he loves all 5 of them.. meaning the relationship between the six of them have he like to hold onto and cherish... “but it’s no good unless I give my answer”... and the focus on the next panels is Miku and Nino.

He’s going to respond to their confession. At least one of these sisters will be rejected.

I don’t believe he’s going to make a confession unless he actually responds by saying he likes one of them. I still believe both will be rejected if he does go through with it.

I still think him doing this at the festival and telling them and waiting until the end of festival was stupid... and a bit cruel to Miku and Nino.

He is going to reject them all in order and confess to Itsuki, isn't him?

I'm here for the memes and I'm not disappointed.

It's finally ending. With Miku until the bitter end

Still hoping for the Itsuki End, just need her arc to truly enter her in the race (and hopefully convert some of the haters).

It's either harem ending, or open ending. Which means we MAY have "what-if"s chapters like that other mangaka who did "Suzuka" and "A town where you live" with all the possible love interests.

"I only knew this after the fact, but the first day of the school festival did not end very well"
You mean you CAN'T see the future? What a surprise!

Anyways, Kishuku Gakkou No Juliet is over, hopefully this will be joining it and maybe overrated harems will die out for a while. Frankly, as far as I'm concerned, this is Nisekoi with quintuplets. The only reason people don't hate either of these is because they've only been going on for 100 chapters instead of 200.

Yotsuba has close to no advantage, it would be amazing if she wins.

He's finally going to confess, that he is the big gay.

What the hell just happened?! That was SUPER unexpected, but if he gives a one name answer(preferably Miku or Yotsuba), much welcome as well.

That "Tomo-chan wa Onna no ko" plug at the end was just perfect.

Harem end. It`s the only way to go. Why leave others heart broken when you can make all happy..?

YES! Harem ending is on track!
Full steam ahead! Choo-choo!

@Yautja To be fair 99,99% of all harem mangas are little more than wish-fulfillment trash. This shone through because it was slightly more interesting than others and had above-average drawings. I do agree about Nisekoi though. As soon as it came out people really liked it (and also had high expectations because of the mangaka's previous work), but I do think it fell in popularity much faster than this one. Around the 50 chapter mark people were already getting tired of it. This seems to be lasting longer.

Well, I'll do you .01 better and say I agree 100% on your description of harems and the tl;dr of this manga being "looks pretty, isn't overtly awful". A year after this ends it'll be forgotten by most, just as Nisekoi is a distant memory only a few years later. The only other reason I think people praise this is because of how low the standards of the anime community has dropped because anime is getting more and more mainstream and people are getting more brain dead. The reviews and discussions on MAL and reddit are testament to that.

As for the popularity fall, I remember it being as early as chapter 80, but really started around 100 chapters in, same for a manhwa called Girls of the Wild which had far better art than this and a decent story for a while. My guess as to why this is lasting longer is lower standards, and less manga read / anime watched. People are enjoying their vapid waifu wars with no idea of where it's going and are going to pissed when they unequivocally get a shitty unsatisfying ending. Just like pretty much every harem that's ever been written.

It's a shame too, because like Nisekoi, this manga has decent characters and character design, and it's going to be entirely wasted on a harem story. The only good thing about a harem is the journey, and even that sucks a lot of the time.

Quit yapping with that your unpopular opinion. They're a good reason why people think this better than most of the harem series. Also, 5 Toubun is FAR better than Nisekoi. And this is not an opinion.
