The first thing that attracted me in this manga is it's art. I really love it's art. So much. I fell in love with it when I read the synopsis. Then when I read the manga I got addicted to it.

Niina, a 10 year-old girl, met her past love life. How cute is that?

I liked the story because it's very attractive. It has a very unique plot and is very shoujo. So It is very recommended for shoujo fans. And especially for fans of loli-shota.

As for the romance in the story, it was very cute, like starting from puppy love to teenage love. Niina makes read more

Both are about the two protagonists, in which one of them dies, and later a supernatural even occurs: In HnN, the one who passed away reincarnates, and in Orange, the future self of the living protagonist sends a letter to the past, to her past self warning her about the future of her beloved. Both are really deep shoujo with bittersweet moments~
Very cute heroines that have pure hearts and care deeply for the people around them. They also both have to work at getting their love interest to fall in love with them.
