An official website has been launched, revealing that manga Orange will be receiving a TV anime adaptation scheduled to premiere for Summer 2016. A key visual and staff members were also revealed.

Staff
Director: Hiroshi Hamasaki (Steins;Gate)
Script: Yuuko Kakihara (Chihayafuru 2)
Character Design: Nobuteru Yuuki (Sakamichi no Apollon)
Studio: TMS Entertainment, Telecom Animation Film

Synopsis
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.

The manga series is drawn by Ichigo Takano and published from March 2012 to August 2015. After chapter 9 ran in Bessatsu Margaret in November 2012, the series went on hiatus for over a year. In 2013, the series switched publishers from Shueisha to Futabasha to republish the first two volumes. Starting from chapter 10, the serialization moved to Monthly Action in December. Previously, the series has also received a live-action film adaptation that was released on December 12, 2015.

Very excited for this! :D

Great staff choices. Only part I'm worried about is the studio because of the amount of projects they have this year but still quite looking forward to the show. Hopefully a faithful 1-cour adaptation.

Unexpected (and in the summer season even...!), but it sure is selling well and is popular~ Too bad for BetsuMa, though. ( '3')┌

Nice.

I've been avoiding reading it because of the art. Wish shoujo anime was more popular just for that reason :(

The highest ranked shoujou manga tied with AnY? I'm not a fan of shoujo but I'll give this shot to see where it goes, at least the staff is great.

WOOHOO FINALLY

Well, the series even got boost before the live action released, so they should see the opportunities for this to be animated.
I hope this will be faithful and success. The series already had like 750k sales per volume, so it will be harder to grow the sales.

I am sure both shoujo and non-shoujo fans will like the anime if the adaptation is done properly. Get ready for the feels!

Just for the record, Suwa is one of the best male leads ever.

If only they adapted HnR, LsL, TnI and LG too.

Should make for a pretty good show. The manga didn't exactly blow me away as it's real damn cheesy at times and the catalysts for everything are magical time travelling letters from the future.

Pretty sure the anime is going to be loved on here. Looking forward to it.

Just as a heads up, be careful about manga spoilers. They'll be removed on sight and dealt with accordingly. It's most definitely not worth getting in trouble over this.

I just mean it's sad seeing anime go above ones that I love and I think are much better but aren't higher because they aren't as hyped/popular :(

Boy oh boy.
That was unexpected.
Really looking forward to this, since it was in my PTR list.
+ this is nice to see the director of Steins;gate and Texhnolyze doing it.

Been thinking about reading this one. Guess I should get on it soon, or wait for the anime. Looking forward to it either way. Summer is looking good now with this and Rewrite.

It has time travelling, it means it`s shit.

Time travelling cause Time Resets, Time resets destroys development and immersion of the story most of the time.

No thank you.

With that kind of mindset, you're better off not following the MAL Top Anime/Manga pages. Orange is not one of my favourite manga either. I would rate it an 8/10 at best but seeing how we hardly ever see shoujo adaptations (and proper ones at it) it is nice to see them being adapted once in a while.

It can better Boku-dake because MAL community has this weakness towards feels anime (Ano Hana, Shigatsu, and now Boku Dake).

If I had your mindset, I would have many sad days seeing how this anime is not even in the top 20.

Followed the first 9 chapters of the first manga, and boy the feels are real.
Now this has me convinced to finish the rest of the manga, and leave me a total rekt by the end.

That's true, people love the feels... The one I feel annoyed about is Hajime no Ippo but hey ho, that's just how it is I guess

I only read the first chapter as I expected that this might happen, and I was definitely impressed. Shoujo or otherwise, this should be very good. Summer's already looking like a very strong season so far.

I really don't how they can mess up with this one. One cour is enough to flesh out all the events. The manga is highly rated and I expect this to be as well.
