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 make the right decisions—especially regarding Kakeru. What's more shocking is that she discovers that ten years later, Kakeru will no longer be with them. Future Naho asks her to watch over him closely.

Okay, this is officially my first review. I've decided to review orange first because it is a manga i will never ever forget

Story: 10/10

It was the story that first compelled me to read this. I'm very much into sci-fi shoujo tragic mangas, and the ratings and reviews seemed quite high. The plot is simple: a girl receiving a letter from her future self asking to watch over someone who won't be in the future, to save him. The details really got me hooked, and there were many unexpected twists. Of course, there are still many questions left unanswered like if Kakeru will survive, and how read more

The hiatus is over and a new chapter will come out every 2 months. :D

So your future self sends you a letter and everything that is written happens. It gives you advice that you have to save this guy because he isn't in the future anymore.

I've only read a few mangas but I think this kind of plot is unique. The pacing is great and there's none of the shoujo cliche moments at this time. The story is pacing quite good even though there's the hiatus so for the story, it's a 9.

Wow. The art. I seriously love the art in this manga. Maybe read more

Both stories involves a bit cliche romance theme wherein the girl meets the boy and they fall in love. But don't underestimate both manga. The authors have this really unique skills in getting the readers ask for more and have these 'Feels Trip' while reading the manga. It wanna makes you feel nostalgic in teens love. Both manga will give you laughter and heartaches that makes you wanna hug each character.
Both feature a melancholic atmosphere and female leads that learn about themselves and try to change, to better themselves while recognizing their own limitations.
