Maria is a beautiful teenage girl with mid-back length dark forest green hair that has bangs hanging on the left side and gray colored eyes. Like in the manga, she maintains her tsundere personality and her face slightly blushes at her cheeks whenever she becomes embarrassed. Maria is a slim girl of average height for her age with straight black hair that is parted to the left side of her face, dark colored eyes and she normally keeps a cold and angry expression, but she quickly tears up or turns red when emotional - in line with her tsundere personality. Maria has a harsh personality and low tolerance for those who come to school for reasons besides studying, which distances her from the other students. She also has a strict policy on following the rules, and gets furious when others do not. Her strong personality also defends her well against gossip. She tries hard in everything she does, be it studying, club activities or playing with the children. Although she is devoted to her studies and does not initially try to get along with her classmates, she feels the strain of being alone and becomes more eager to make friends-being noticeably happy when she first shares contact details with new friends (only having her parents' info before). She is a member of the cooking club, though her skills were somewhat limited (the cookies she baked were too tough to chew).
9 Reasons Manga Is A Waste Of Time
She improves her culinary skills over time, to the point where her classmate Yagi considers her capable of teaching others how to bake cookies. She is quick to flip between being cold or angry to upset or embarrassed, often due to her awkwardness with social situations from studying all the time. She loves the daycare children but does not express it well. She is adored by Kirin who sees her as an older sister figure despite her gruff behavior. Despite her anxiousness in unfamiliar situations, she is considerate to others especially Ushimaru, and avoids causing trouble for them. Inomata appears to be the only daughter of Gorou and Kimie, both of whom uphold principles of strict upbringing with their child. It was revealed that Maria was not allowed to watch television even as a child, and when discussing Kirin's favorite anime, "Petit Pois", she had no idea about the show's characters, though she took a liking to it when Usaida played it on his handphone for her to watch. She first appears when the daycare children follow Ryuuichi through the school, to which she publicly children him for his Negligence. The next day, she sees Shizuka Kamitani carrying a stack of folders and offers to help. The teacher asks a favor of her, asking Inomata to take her son, Hayato's lunchbox to the daycare. Inomata arrives to hear Ryuuichi trying to comfort a despondent Kotarou and tells him that he has "no reason to be upset" by her comments, but she argues that the reason is obvious-it is due to Ryuuichi's Negligence.
Much less = More With Manga
Usaida, after reading a message from Shizuka, pretends to have a stomachache and forces Hayato to take him to the nurse's office. Usaida leaves both Inomata and Ryuuichi in charge of the children, not giving Inomata a chance to complain. When Ryuuichi tells her he is fine to care for the children on his own, Inomata refuses the way out, saying she will not be so irresponsible to leave the children all alone. When the children refuse to approach her, Inomata offers to hold Midori for Ryuuichi, but her loud and angry voice accidentally makes Midori cry and the children attack her, with Taka calling her a "baddie". Asking who he is calling a baddie, she accidentally scares them into submission and they cower behind a table. Ryuuichi tries to make the children apologise, but she tells him not to bother, seeing that he is in a worse and more "pitiful" situation. But Ryuuichi tells her she is mistaken and that he is truly happy, she starts throwing toys at him and shouting, realizing her own situation is more pitiful with the children fearful of her and her classmates perceived to be hating her because all she can do is study. She cries openly, frustrated, but is comforted by the children who relate to her pain and cry in sympathy too. She holds them close and exhausts herself crying, accidentally falling asleep with the children and waking up when the kids have arisen and are eating lunch.
Embarrassed, Inomata claims that she does not skip class like this while Ryuuichi apologises, telling her she would not wake up after his attempts to do so. After repeatedly meeting Ryuuichi, it becomes clear that she has developed a crush on him (though she does not know it), even going so far as to try to make him Valentine's chocolates. It is through their mutual affection for Ryuuichi that Ushimaru and herself become friends. Ushimaru later introduces Inomata to her other friends over New Year's. When the daycare children (along with Ryuuichi and Hayato) invite her to play in the snow and she goes (to the shock of her mother), she accidentally brings along fellow advanced class student, Yagi Tomoya, who had saved her from falling over into the snow and calls the Nezu siblings to play as well. Ryuuichi invites Ushimaru too and Usaida shows up carrying Midori, then asks Inomata if she has ever made a snowman before, saying she gives off a "vibe" that she has not.
Worry? Not If You utilize Manga The appropriate Means!
Inomata says she did once in elementary school, but admits to having done it alone, inspiring everyone to build their own snowmen for her. The ridiculousness of everyone's creations makes her laugh, but she questions Usaida's opinion that the one she helped make is equally weird. Ushimaru encourages her to send a picture to their friends and she is characteristically baffled by their response, not understanding the shorthand for laughter and kaomoji. Inomata had overheard others having conversations about her tendency to be hung up on school rules, including some of Ushimaru's friends. Ushimaru herself had never spoken against Inomata, who nevertheless directed reprimands towards the whole group for gossiping so openly. It wasn't until Ryuuichi received a love letter that the two of them began crossing paths more frequently. Both harbored feelings for him, so they both headed to secretly watch to see if he would reciprocate the sentiment to the writer of the letter. They ran into each other, and then Ryuuichi, who was distressed about Kotarou having wandered off.
The two agreed to hep him search before Kotarou turned up safe and sound in the company of the Kamitani brothers. The two then spied on Ryuuichi together as he turned down the girl who left him the love letter. Inomata denied Ushimaru's insinuation that she was worried Ryuuichi would reject them as well. Ushimaru extended an offer of friendship towards Inomata, asking if she could called her by her given name. Inomata accepted, though such forward interactions would take some time getting used to. Maria had a bad first impression of Ryuuichi. When she saw the noisy daycare children following him down the hallways, she believed him to be a big troublemaker. She talked the apologetic babysitter's ear off for disturbing other students during school hours. Shizuka and Usaida believed that the tightly-wound Maria could benefit from learning how to be more relaxed and approachable like Ryuu. Thus, they worked together to have her spend an afternoon in the daycare. Their intuition was right, and Maria found herself visiting more often to play with the children. She continued to reprimand Ryuu whenever she caught him paying little regard to school regulations, but to her surprise he was prone to addressing her with warmth, kindness, and respect. When Maria realized that she was developing feelings for Ryuu, she was hesitant to return to the daycare. Not wanting to lose her composure around Ryuu, she began using her academic responsibilities as an excuse to keep her distance. She was unable to keep this up, because she missed the children as much as they missed her. When Maria learned that Ryuu received an anonymous Valentine, she was overcome with curiosity as to how he would respond. On the day the sender requested a response, Maria left for school early to observe the meeting (she unconvincingly denied this was the reason though).

The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
