CRYING BECAUSE THIS WAS BEAUTIFUL. *RUNS TO THE STORE TO PICK UP VOLUME 2*

Orange is a manga series that will definitely pull on your heartstrings. Heck, before even starting the actual story, the first two art pages at the beginning about broke my heart by themselves. This story starts out with our main character, Naho, receiving a letter from herself ten years in the future. She and her group of friends are sixteen and in eleventh grade in high school, but what her twenty-six-year-old self is trying to warn her of is imperative.

My oh my, this manga is brilliant. The characters feel so real, and the artwork is amazing, definitely the best I've seen in any manga I've read so far. This read was also an emotional roller coaster, taking me from pure joy to deep sadness in the blink of an eye, and it felt so realistic that I couldn't get enough. This sort of felt like a combination of two of my favorite anime, Erased and Your Lie In April, sort of in terms of the subject matter (friendship, grief, time travel, etc.) but main ...more

I have officially read my first ever manga! It was fun, but I wasn’t especially blown away 😕 I will probably carry on with the series at some point though bc I’m very curious to see how it turns out!

This is the first manga i've read and i'm so stoked! I loved it! I thought I would have much more trouble acclimating to the backwards reading style, but it was surprisingly easy to get accustomed to and I found it easier to read than some graphic novels that I've read. That being said, I think this manga is a great entry point to the genre for anyone because it's modern, the art is really really cute, and the storyline is easy to follow yet still interesting and fun!

I've heard so many of my friends rave about this manga series that I was really excited to read it, but I was told to go into it "as blind as possible", so I went in thinking it was just a basic contemporary romance about some high schoolers. Nope. There is so much more to this than "just" a romance.

First, let me say that these characters are SO PRECIOUS and I would protect any of them at all costs—especially Suwa! I feel like he's the quiet, unsung hero of this story, in a sense, and he breaks

I read this because it was a Goodreads Choice Book Final round selection for 2016, and I really really liked it a lot. It turns on a sort of familiar scifi trope/and social media theme: What if you could change your past? Or, what would your 25 year old self say to your 15 year old self? Naho gets letters from her 25 year old self urging her to change the future that would lead to Kakeru's suicide. There's romance in here, but the book chiefly deals with this attempt to change the future by acti ...more

THIS WAS SO CUTE OMG.
If you ever feel a bit heartbroken or just generally need a pick me up, read Orange. This manga was so adorable and relatable but also dealt with some harder issues, I loved it so much. Would I have enjoyed it as much had I read it during a different time of my life? Most likely not. But for the mood I was/am in, this was absolutely perfect and exactly what I needed. It made me happy and I was able to lose myself in it for just a little bit. Thank goodness books li

Yikes :/ Dnf @ 25%

Umm so I don't really know what happened here. People praise this, the average rating is extremely high, but I don't get it. This is overhyped and overrated in my opinion.

Plot is alright, nothing super special but alright. But the reason I DNF'd is the structure. Text all over the place, sometimes I don't even know what it is. There's text bubbles in a square with no arrows and no people, so I have no idea who is talking. The timeline jumps back and forth but doesn't give me a

This was so good! It was adorable and had a beautiful element of friendship. Such a cool concept that has a deeper meaning to it. It shows how little things can make all the difference. Anyways this was amazing and I must get my hands on the second collection!!

My goodness, I don't think I have ever read a book that has made me swoon right from the first page. This manga has reduced me to a single huge beating heart. I want to declare my love for everyone and everything!!! Ahhhhh, it's the CUTEST read ever! <3

Orange is a wonderfully-written and beautifully-illustrated manga focusing on the romantic feelings between Naho and Kakeru, two high-school students. Naruse Kakeru is a new transfer from Tokyo and immediately catches Naho's at

I’ve been contemplating whether or not to read Orange for a while now. Recently, I came across someone on Goodreads who was reading it and absolutely loving it and it inspired me to finally pick it up…and I’m so glad that I did!

The heavy topics mixed with lighthearted scenarios. I honestly had no idea how dark and sad that this manga would become at times. I thought it was going to be a lighthearted and fun story, but it gets really deep and intense. However, the juxtaposition of t

Maybe it's impossible to live life without any regrets. Even when you know the future...you'll still mess up.

Orange was a wonderful introduction for me to manga. Yup, I'm a manga neophyte! :D I'm sorry I joined the bandwagon only now. I am not really fond of reading on electronic devices, so I deigned to buy the actual, printed collections regardless of their...high prices. Now, I'm happy to say my monetary sacrifice was worth it.

After reading the first half of the manga, I can say that Orange i

Sunt sigură că până acum ați realizat faptul că sunt o fană manga și anime. Nu am reușit să văd extrem de multe anime sau să lecturez așa multe manga în ultima perioadă, dar am reușit să relecturez o manga care îmi este la suflet.

Orange de Takano Ichigo este o manga alcătuită din 5 volume. Primele 3 volume au fost incluse într-o colecție pe care am reușit să mi-o achiziționez prin luna februarie a acestui an. Am savurat aceasta manga imensă până de curând, și mi s

The last time I read a manga... I was a teenager. I didn’t enjoy manga back then.
Funny how things change.
I loved this. I LOVED IT. I cried, I laughed, I cried some more, and I laughed some more. I was emotionally invested in this story from the beginning.
This was fantastic and it’s definitely going to be the book that opens of a whole new world of manga reading for me!

Excuse me while I go overnight the part 2 book to my house! 💜

2016 Reading Challenge #22: A graphic novel.

Durante casi un mes sufrí el peor reading slump de mi vida. No sólo no podía leer nada, sino que deje de disfrutar la lectura. De pronto, contemplar el techo durante horas me parecía más interesante que los libros. Por más que me esforzara, nada me interesaba, ni cautivaba. Ya Mariantonella me había recomendado leer un manga pero, de nuevo, no encontraba ninguno que me llamara la atención. Hasta que, por ca

THIS BOOK GAVE ME ALL THE FEELZ™
Be it heart fluttering romance, soul crushing hopelessness and ultimately, bittersweet happiness, Orange had just about everything I wanted from it. But not more.

Which is why I'm going to settle this beautiful manga with four stars— the artwork and storyline weren't anything beyond the realm of ordinary, but it's the characters we get to meet that made this read a special one.

Finishing all 22 chapters in one sitting took me on a journey of ups and downs, with e
