If you got a letter from your future self, would you believe it? What if everything the letter predicted came true? What if it asked you to save one of your classmates from a terrible fate... and you start falling in love with him?

Time-traveling letters, possible parallel universes, friends who love each other... there is no way I could have resisted this manga, even if I wanted to. It’s possibly the cutest saddest comic I have ever read and I love it five million. I seriously want to buy two copies of this book so I can use one to cut out every panel where there’s a face close up to make a giant poster, because they are so damn beautiful. And then if there are any speech bubbles left, I’ll make a collage of all the different lettering styles and speech bubble decorations, because they are also too freakin' adorable.

I was hesitant to read the second book, because I was afraid the author wouldn't keep up with the complexity of the feelings and relationships between the characters, especially in what could be viewed as a love triangle between the main POV character, the classmate she'd trying to save, and another boy who's obviously in love with her. Have no fear, my friends. The ending was just as good as the rest of the story.

Naho, a timid high school girl, receives a mysterious letter written by herself from ten years into the future. The letter instructs young Naho to respond to certain events in her daily life in unique ways to avoid future sorrows. Most of these instructions involve how she responds to a cute new boy in her class. After reading this tender and tragic shoujo romance series, I began to rethink some of my own past regrets and imagined a different kind of future.

This is an excellent series dealing with the thoughts of friends (In particular, Naho's thoughts) when one of them is going through a very rough time and is contemplating suicide. It has a slight Sci-fi aspect in that Naho receives a letter from the future that begs her to help her new friend in class. It's painful at times, but as events change and the letters become less reliable, you get a picture of what a group of supportive friends go through in trying to help one of their own. It's not action packed, but it is emotionally loaded, at least for me. Due to the nature of suicide, I recommend this for mature 13 year olds and up.

'Orange' was amazing! I've never read a manga/anime and I'm surprised how great it was. The characters (especially Naho, the main character,) are all relatable. The story is heartbreaking AND heartwarming and will have you crying till the end. I would definitely recommend reading 'Orange' if you haven't.

I absolutely adored this manga. It's so cute and beautiful. I was crying by the end of it.

Naho Takamiya has a secret. She has received a letter from herself, ten years in the future. Naho’s future self implores her to value and support her new friend, Kakeru Naruse. Naho of the future reveals a number of regrets and offers suggestions to improve how certain situations pan out. In doing so, Naho believes she will be able to save Kakeru’s life.

Despite not personally being a manga reader, I fell in love with the characters and their mission. The artwork and dialogue is gentle and subtle, the perfect reflection of Naho's character.

This is a graphic novel; unreadable for anyone over the age of 40, methinks. Book reads from back to front and dialogue is repetitive and puerile.

Wow. This was a really good book. It was depressing, though! I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like reading sad things, because suicide is a major theme. It has a very interesting plot involving time travel and parallel universes. It has a very few swear words, like b**** a** d*** and a**h***, but they are VERY RARELY used. A**h**e is used ONCE, so is a**, so is d***, but b**** is used like 3 or 4 times. I really liked this manga. Also, it said 'to be continued' at the end, so it was not a complete collection.
The whole thing was like MAJORR feels and really sweet, if you are fine with sad things, I recommend it!

Oh, and if you're wondering if your kid should read it: a character joked about 'getting busy with your girlfriend,' which would probably go over kid's heads and it never happened, just mindless joking. There are two boys who both like the main girl, and the characters know this, but one jokes and asks if they are dating because they were hanging out together, so it was just mindless joking again. Some characters do date, they are all boys dating girls (not judging anyone, just saying). There is absolutely NO sexual content in this book. And, if you're a Christian, they DO say 'Oh my God' a couple times.
I'm only writing this because Common Sense and Plugged In have not reviewed this for kids. I still wouldn't recommend it to kids because of the serious subject matter, but if you don't mind reading it, I say GO FOR IT!

Just heartbreaking. This is a beautifully done manga. The subject matter can be hard to talk about, but that's part of the point - ignoring it didn't work out for the characters the first time around, and to have any hope of things turning out better, they will have to face it head on.
