Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self.

The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.

Orange was one of the first romance and drama shows I watched. Coming back to review since 2020. It's been such a great story line something unique to it. Sending letters to your high school self. This show left a big tear in my eye with a group of friends sticking together present and future. This anime's art-style was too bland but great to ignore. The animations and soundtrack were just amazing to hear and watch. They have adapted this well. I had enjoyed every minute of it, the pacing was amazing, and the characters were great with friendship development. Would watch again and again. ...

Mixed Feelings
6/10. It was fine, but I would never bother rewatching it. The pacing was too slow for my liking and the story was depressing but in a dragged out sort of way. Everything felt like it was at 0.5 speed. The characters are okay but I didn't particularly love any of them. It seemed a little odd that this group of friends would be SO invested in Kakeru when he's the newest member of the group. I would have preferred if he had been their friend from childhood. It also felt a little unrealistic that Suwa would be so selfless when he clearly also likes ...

I am not a big fan of shoujo shows (or manga). Mostly because it is the most formulaic type of all media. But that doesn't mean when one title catches my interest (like this one) I don't give it a try.

I liked the cast of characters. The personality and acting of the main female lead makes her more of a hit or miss (I had no issues with her); but the way she and her friends act together is really heartwarming. Their friendly interactions are likable and it seems they trust each other, since they are willing to talk about their issues to each other ...
