Very charming first episode. I'm going into this without having read the manga, but I'm already excited for more. I wonder what caused Kakeru to be absent from school for two weeks.

The show feels very refreshing so far, even with the sense of gloom lurking in the background.

The setting gives me a countryside feeling

Good artwork and I think it's obvious that Naho has an attraction or at least curiosity towards Kakeru, the new boy in town. Animation quality is good, a lot better than I had expected.


I had been waiting for this to get animated ever since I read the Manga. A good start.

The artwork was very nice.

I thought the JST air time was 8:30PM and was still waiting until I noticed the episode was already out. Darn xD

Anyway, I'm liking the adaptation so far. Enchanting start and the art is beautiful and they captured Kakeru's smile really well. I loved the manga and I most probably will love this series all over again.

Can't really comment on the plot or speculations of what Naho will do since I already know what happens.

Can anyone explain to me why the fuck she did not read the entire letter the first chance she got? "Oh, Kakeru hasn't shown up to school for two weeks now, maybe I should check to see if the letter has anything to say about this" - just want kind of insane plot induced stupidity is this?

Please tell me if it just keeps going like this, where you have to turn off your brain in service of feels.....


There are some subtle differences in the anime when compared to the manga, When she first reads the letter in class, She reads the first entry and passes it of as a prank. After going home she proceeds to compare her current diary entry to the one in the letter and after realizing that they are similar she stops reading the letter again stating that she's scared that this truly might be about the future and if so she doesn't want to know what happens. She only opens the letter again after 2 weeks where she learns about the ball game. If such stuff bothers you, I think it'd be a good idea to follow the anime and manga in parallel or just read the manga.

The main girl is already annoying. I hate these passive characters that get like "I don't want to cause trouble for others!" and then end up causing trouble for everyone cause they're too stupid to know they're supposed to actually speak up when things are wrong. Ugh. I don't get why she fell in love with Kakeru, anyway... She barely knows him. Does she just have a huge foot fetish and touching her heel blisters makes her fall for you?

Though the thing that bothers me most about this is the end scene... She's married with a child. Why would you try to change your life and talk about how you regret everything you've done when you've already settled down with a family? It's too late for that now. If she really regretted everything this much, she'd have done something about it before now and not ended up just forsaking the people she's supposed to love and be there for. Take some goddamn responsibility; you're a mother now.


It's more along the lines of her future self wanting the 16 year old Naho to take charge and speak up when something's wrong. She regrets the fact that she wasn't able to do that and eventually regretted it even more since Kakeru died. So technically your issue of taking responsibility is exactly what they try to solve.

It's a shame they couldn't get OnoD and Ryouhei Kimura to voice Hiroto and Kakeru but oh well, at least we've got KanaHana

Judging from what I've read of the mango I think they did a pretty good job adapting the first chapter

Anime-only viewer here :p
First of all, I must say the vibe I got from this first episode was just incredible. It felt different from the other stuff I've watched over the past few days.(Yes, generic romance, battle-harem shows :D).

Art style feels quintessentially Japanese, pretty decent OSTs,nice setting for the story and a pretty catchy plot.
I'm just hoping this doesn't build up to be an epic story and then end up in a total trainwreck like Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi or Guilty Crown.

I was waiting for an anime adaptation, so I didn't spoil myself with the manga ...
... and this is AMAZING ! I hope this will be one of the best SoL, backgrounds are absolutly magic (we saw some of them for less than 1 second), HanaKana *o* and the plot seems to be fine

Besides the weird ass faces some of these characters seem to be sporting, I liked the episode quite a bit. It has an interesting theme and good cast list so far. And man, Naho's friends befriending Kakeru just like that. We need more people in the world like that.

Looking forward to what the rest of the series has to offer.

Extremely low chance because it's a rather short manga with 22 chapters. It will fit in well within a one cour (12/13 episodes) adaptation.

Try to enjoy it with an expectation of what to be expected from a shoujo manga adaptation. It's a good shoujo manga so don't go expecting a Steins;Gate since it has Sci-Fi tagged to it.

This anime will be enjoyable for people who like any three of the following:
- Romance
- Friendship
- School
- Drama
- Shoujo

The balance is pretty good so even if one, say for example, doesn't like 2 categories out of the above 5, they'll still enjoy it. May not be pleasant for those who take shipping a bit too far and judges a story entirely based on their shipping and rate them based on whether their ship sails or sinks.

... This episode left me stunned. For the most part nothing special really happened and we simply got the slice of life anime with a little twist in the form of that letter.

But truly this letter gives the whole series this special nostalgia feeling which is the first great thing out of many.

The whole tone of the episode is so calming and enjoyable. The characters are standard but they are likeable as well but most importantly, the whole series has beautiful animation, soundtrack, character designs and those backgrounds!!!! Those backgrounds are incredible.

Great show so far. Not something I will be hyped about during the season but I will definitely enjoy it to the fullest.

It's good thing I didn't pick up manga seeing how greatly this adaptation is.

Gotta say that the first chapter was adapted pretty well. I loved it. The visuals are quite pleasant to see, and the animation is decent. Lovely music as well.

I can't wait to see what this adaptation will bring. I've been excited to watch this ever since finishing the manga. I hope Hagita will be just as funny as in the manga ;P. So far, so good.

The art style for me was hit and miss and I really didn't like the OP. I didn't give the ending a chance to be honest but next week I will. Honestly i'm disappointed so far because this was the series I was most looking forward to along with ReLIFE and Servamp.

Anime-only watcher here, it was pretty good. Of bread-fueled montages and softball homers. XD So the plot is to save Kakeru, her first love. Interesting, but if she succeeds and they end up together I'm assuming Future Suwa will get the shaft big time? Unless that child wasn't theirs together or something. An inherent problem for a series like this as I'll feel bad for him then. Already kinda do knowing he couldn't make her happy enough to get over Kakeru's death. I'll be interested to see if that thought will continue to annoy me throughout or if the show gets past it. Well either way not bad so far.
episode 1 and already saw the NTR end lol....

Nice episode but I wonder will it go with these future letters, I hope this is not another "use time travel to make everything right" like it seemed from the first episode.

Same here.
I don't know why but the episode felt so forced. I haven't read the manga so I can't compare the two but I have watched the live-action movie and honestly, so far I liked the movie better. Of course, this was only the first episode and it might turn out bettter but at the moment I am a little disappointed. The art was .. ok I guess? Not a fan of the pointy teeth to be honest and I felt like it wasn't smooth at times? At least something was bothering me regarding the art.

All in all it was an ok-episode. I was quite bored while watching. I think the voices fit the characters. I hope it will get better in the next episode :)

i think if you'd both had read the manga you'd like this show much more. i watched the live action and it was really disappointing imo but so far the anime is really accurate so pls give it a chance ~

Nice, the first episode kept the overall atmosphere from the manga! It was also extremely faithful to the original source.

First episode in, and I'm already getting Erased vibes from this, in a good way. So Future Naho (who has a lot of regrets) wants her past self to save Kakeru, by changing some actions that she did via letters that were somehow sent to the past. I'm pretty excited to see the rest of the anime.

I like the first episode, the animation of background and characters are well done. The BGM set the drama atmosphere and I felt it good same goes to the OP and ED. The characters are seems likeable, so I'm hoping for good developments. I haven't read the manga but the adaptation looks promising. So far a plain and beautiful episode and this is surely a feels trip.

LOL okay, that's kinda relieving :)
But, you never know what's going on in the minds of the folks at the studios these days...
I never expected it to be like Steins;Gate level good, just something different from your everyday generic shoujo drama.
Yeah,I dont get the whole ship wars thing, it kinda kills the actual story for me.

I wonder how Kakeru dies. I think his death will be unavoidable coz she would've been trying to save him instead of just doing this back-to-the-past letter to relieve her regrets.

Great first episode. Hope to see more promising episodes in the weeks to come.

I think the adaption will be pretty good if they keep true.

I must say, while I remember the shoe stuff... It was only until watching the anime I thought of a certain Death Note scene...


I must say though, now that I know what happens - subtle hints of how the characters actually feel are so amazing :3.

I wonder about that actually. Apparently episode one was literally chapter one of the manga, so unless they start speeding up and cram 2 chapters into one episode I don't think 12/13 eps will be sufficient... but we'll see I suppose.

Anime-only viewer.

Good introduction, still have to know better the cast but it seems a lovely one, they look like really close friends and Kakeru looks like he will be able to join without troubles.

I wonder what will happen, and what are Naho's regrets...

So far this seems really good, so I'll keep watching.

About the art style... is this really a Shoujo? it gave me a Josei vibe, and the plot feels "mature" too as in a Josei, though... maybe I'm just not used to modern shoujous, but classic-style ones...

Brilliant start.

The atmosphere is great and the soundtrack sounds really good for the anime adaption, it definitely has that country feel to it.
Nice hearing HanaKana voice Naho, it suits her character. Artwork looks gorgeous as well.

This is going to be one emotional rollercoaster..

It's in Matsumoto, I've actually lived there for 6 months. Japanese call it countryside indeed, but to be honest, the city itself is really big and has some nice shopping malls :)

This can turn out to be one of 2016's most promising anime series.I think the concept is way different than anything I've seen before.Probably,because I'm not into this kind of genre,but I can say with certainty that this anime is going to hit hard indeed...because Naho may or may not be capable of saving Kakeru,even with the redo.

Time travel here as well? For the love of god, when will this shitty gimmick STOP? I can only hope this Anime just continues being a simple SoL and NOT have bs time travel stupidity in it. Could anyone who's read the Manga tell me if the time travel is a main plot device or not? Like, does it get touched upon a lot?

The Orange manga came out before Ao Haru Ride's manga thoughh... so Futaba looks like Naho and Kou looks like Kakeru.

Like most commenters I'm intrigued enough to give it the three-episodes treatment. All the more so since I'm a sucker for time manipulation stories. Storywise it was very interesting to announce from the first episode on that one of the main characters won't “be with us” for very long.

Unlike most commenters I couldn't care less how it compares to a manga, light novel, game or whatever. Either it stands on its own or it doesn't.

Ahhh yes. Running and messing around with my friends. It remind me of the youth I never got, hahahaha *sob*

Is it me or the ending of the episode (speculation)


Seem to have some interesting romance, between this and ReLife (which is already over, FML). There is also Rewrite which I haven't got the chance to watch yet. Could be a good season for romance (which clearly lacked last season).
