TheAwersome Rating: 8.5 / 10 (Satisfying conclusion)
Premise: Futaro has led five quintuplets to the point where they can graduate and pursue their own dreams. Now, finally, they had reached their final school festival. Having decided to make this occasion one to remember, Futaro searches for his feelings for the five quintuplets.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: I don’t have too much to add here that hasn’t been said in the previous reviews of Seasons 1 and 2, but that isn’t to say that there isn’t good content here. A lot of the same good fleshing out of characters, though I do feel some arcs felt slightly unresolved, or at least their weight deserved a bit more attention than the movie could give to them. Without getting into spoilers, I’ll say that the harem aspect was handled in a believable and satisfying way. Uesugi’s relationship with each of the girls is different, and we get a good exploration of that with each of them in the movie.
The only reason this has a lower rating than the previous seasons is that a lot of it feels like wrap-up, which isn’t bad per se, but I feel there was enough new serious drama that could have been explored with greater depth that was wrapped up a bit quickly to get on to “the final choice.”
TLDR: A solid, definitive ending to a solid series that sets the bar for what harem romance anime can be.
