* The article reveals the content and conclusion of the Gotoubun no Hanayome series, which the reader carefully considered before reading the article.
Gotoubun no Hanayome, also known as The House of 5 Brides, is a work of mangaka Negi Haruba. Starting appearing in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen magazine since August 2017, this manga has quickly caught the attention of readers by new ideas.
The series is about the protagonist Uesugi Fuutarou, an extremely good high school student whose family is quite poor. He was recruited as a tutor for 5 school friends. Interestingly, these Nakano girls are sisters born in the year, and from here, a lot has happened around them. Gradually, the love arose between all 5 girls and tutor Fuutarou, leading to one of the most romantic and overlapping love stories in the manga village at the present time.
Author Haruba Negi has a way to build the story quite perfect. Although the 5 sisters were born from the same egg, the differences in girls’ personalities were quite significant. Each girl has her own stage, her own story to shine in the hearts of readers.
However, the fun will eventually end, only 1 girl will be chosen. Before the anime premiered in early 2019, mangaka Haruba Negi had a conversation with a magazine about the future and the unresolved mysteries of this series. According to the author, he built the wedding – the end of the series from chapter 1 as if describing the intention – that there would be no harem for all the girls.
And recently, the series ended in chapter 122 with the same ending as author Haruba Negi announced. After the “harem war” took place extremely fierce, the end of the series Uesugi Fuutarou has married 1 in 5 girls after a period of 5 years. The “winner” in this harem war is the 4th younger sister – Yotsuba. This is also the girl with the best love affair with the main character Fuutarou. Fuutarou also confirmed and confessed to Yotsuba and these two were exactly a couple in the last high school festival.
However, the last chapter of the series gives all fans a “trick” full of surprises. For the most part in chapter 122, most of the story pages are about Yotsuba and Fuutarou’s wedding, while also talking about Fuutarou’s thoughts about each of the 5 sisters. But in the final pages, that wedding was just … Fuutarou’s dream. That means that Fuutarou and Yotsuba have never been in a couple, but the actual ending is that the marriage of any girl has never been determined.
Having said that, this is a ending that is both full and unfinished for the fans. The wedding did indeed happen in the last chapter, just like what Haruba Negi had arranged from the first chapter. However, that does not mean that Yotsuba has “won”, every girl still has a chance to come to the main character, and still … no ship has ever sunk.
