The Quintessential Quintuplets Season 2 Episode 9 Spoilers
In episode 8, while Itsuki distracts her father, Futaro tries to find out who, among the other four sisters, was dressed as Itsuki on their first night at Toraiwa Hot Springs. However, he finds all of them dressed as Itsuki when he sees them next, making his investigation even more complicated. He figures out who among them is Yotsuba quite easily. She explains that their grandfather collapsed after he saw her with a ribbon for the first time, and she and her sisters decided that they would all wear what Itsuki wore whenever they were with him.
Futaro’s conversation with the girls is interrupted when the grandfather walks into the room. Believing that it’s their father, he hides under the futon. He then takes the opportunity to check the girls for the bruise that fake Itsuki had. Nino and Ichika have a conversation while taking a bath in the hot springs. Without knowing that Ichika is already aware of it, Nino admits that she is in love with someone and asks for her sister’s advice.
Futaro begs the girls’ grandfather to help him learn how to identify the girls correctly. In response, the older man advises him to love them and watch out for their habits, voices, and mannerisms. Seeing how bold Nino is about her feelings towards Futaro, Ichika becomes distraught because she has bottled up her own feelings towards the boy and doesn’t know how to let them out.
When Yotsuba finds her like this, she comforts her sister. Following the guidance that the grandfather gave him earlier, Futaro recognizes that it was Miku who he came across that night, making the girl truly happy. As Futaro’s family and Nakanos prepare to leave the hot springs, someone runs towards Futaro and kisses him, making him grab the bell pull to maintain balance and ring it accidentally. In episode 9, the mysterious kisser might be revealed. The girls and Futaro might return to school to start a new year.
