One day, Takamiya Naho receives a letter written to herself from ten years in the future. As Naho reads on, the letter recites the exact events of the day, including the transfer of a new student into her class named Naruse Kakeru.

The Naho from ten years later repeatedly states that she has many regrets, and she wants to fix these by making sure the Naho from the past can

''People often say, ‘‘A lot of people would be sad if you died.’’ But you dont know that for sure unless you die. ‘‘Even if the going is though now, hang in there and it'll get better.’’ Easy for you to say. Hanging in there... Living... Is the toughest thing there is.''

No sé, pero no es lo que esperaba. El primer capítulo sí que me gustó, lo vi como una buena introducción y con unos personajes que pensaba que podrían dar juego con la historia. En la segunda parte la trama fue avanzando, y pese a que la protagonista me sacaba de los nervios, entendía ligeramente su situación. El problema vino a partir de la mitad.

Porque mira, entiendo la sociedad de Japón y este género de manga. De verdad que lo entiendo, pero estaba lleno de machistadas. Es que eran demasiado

This is the best manga I've ever read! It made me cry and cry!! Full of true feelings.
- When they told "Kakeru" that they tried all the time to save him from death, that was very touching.

Really「ありがとう 」for the writer.

In the midst of the usual shoujo manga varieties that cater to the many shades and conflicts of school-girl infatuation and romance, Ichigo Takano's ongoing series ORANGE easily stands out. This manga's central romantic development, though more or less integral to the tale being told, is not Orange's real selling point let alone its primary focus. Instead, Orange is a rather earnest and at times painfully realistic story concerning a teenager's clinical depression told in the perspectives of his ...more

I did not expect this. Normally, I avoid this genre of manga, I prefer shonen and more action, however, this story is so beautiful. It stole my heart.
Super completely random decided to check this out. I had this on my tbr and then Gabry rec'd it to me so I was like ... cool, let's give this a chance.

Nine chapters and two hours later I was hooked.

This has a perfect blend of great characters, fantastic story, and a bit of a scifi twist to get you hooked.

Can't wait to finish this one and see what happens.

When Naho receives a letter from herself ten years in the future, she begins to have doubts that it is real. Can she change the future already set into place about her and her friends as well as a boy she likes named Kakeru? Read on and find out for yourself.

This was a pretty good manga that I read at . Go here to check it out. It was a pretty good manga drama.

I was expecting a cutesy, shallow plot, but this story is actually touching, and has potential for some tears. I like how the writer handles friendship, without all that sisterhood-traveling-pants far-fetched nonsense. It's a perfect balance between the importance of friends and the pitfalls of reality.

Dear, Ichigo Takano

I finished watching the anime and I'm crying. You seriously don't know the meaning of "Chill, Let a girl live"

You need to pay for my therapy sessions.

Great manga with nice story that goes deep into the psychology of the characters, touching sensitive issues. That said, it doesn't focuses on the school life, friendship and young love solemnly and that was interesting. Another plus of this manga was its length, as it was short enough to read it comfortably.

Dieser erste Band der Reihe hat mir überraschend gut gefallen!
Es ist schon sehr viel passiert und ich finde die Charaktere sehr sympathisch und fiebere sehr mit ihnen mit. Ich bin total gespannt, wie die Geschichte sich weiterentwickeln wird und ob die Zukunft sich tatsächlich ändern wird.
ich hatte zuerst Bedenken bei der Reihe wegen dem leicht übersinnlichen Aspekt, weswegen Carlsen den Manga auch als "Mystery" einstuft, aber dieser steht nicht unbedingt im Vordergrund und macht die Geschichte

Was für eine tolle Geschichte! Es haben ja schon so viele von diesem Manga geschwärmt (auch Leute, die sonst eigentlich keine Manga lesen) und jetzt musste ich mich endlich mal selbst überzeugen. Die Charaktere sind so toll und ich liebe die Story jetzt schon. Gleichzeitig gibt es immer noch diesen Aspekt des Erwachsen werdens und der Gedanke, welche Chancen man genutzt und welche verpasst hat - und das ist einfach so toll mit in diese Story eingearbeitet. Man fühlt sich direkt angesprochen und ...more
I almost drowned in my own tears. And even after so many days, every time I think about this manga, I die a little inside.

This review is my version of catharsis.

The thing about oranges is that when you peel the rind, you don’t know how it would taste. You pick a piece and put it in your mouth, you don’t know; it could taste tangy and bitter or, it could taste sweet and citrusy, like a burst of sunset between your teeth. That’s what I think this manga allegorizes. I had no idea going in what I

Pues déjenme contarles queridos lectores, que el manga tambien es literatura. No suelo poner los mangas aquí porque, de hecho, no leo muchos mangas, pero este realmente me ha gustado mucho, y pienso que hacer una review es una forma de que otros lo vean y tambien lo lean.

Es hermoso cuando tomás un manga con todo el hype y termina cumpliendo esas expectativas.

Acá tenemos a Naho, nuestra protagonista, una adolescente de 16 años quien recibe una carta de su yo a 10 años en el futuro mencionándole sucesos que estarán por venir y cosas que quiere que haga (y que no haga) para que luego no se quede con el remordimiento, debido a que la Naho de 26 años ya no puede con todo el arrepentimiento que carga su corazón.

Einfach berührend, gefühlvoll und schön gezeichnet.
Es hat für mich eine fröhliche und eine traurige Note, die sehr gut harmonieren.

Once you get over the concept that you’re not reading the book in the traditional western way from left to right, but from right to left, it’s a pretty simple but engaging read. The main character receives a letter from her future self instructing her about things she should do differently each day in order to save her friend.
