Her name is Orange. She's a young girl in high school, coming of age in the heart of the city. And she has decided she has nothing to live for. Not her shallow friends. Not her parents. Not school. Not even the empty promise of love. Her head filled with morbid fantasies of suicide, Orange finds herself standing at the edge of her rooftop when the drunken, enigmatic young man, Dashu, enters her world...changing it forever...

A heartbreaking tale of a young woman desperately trying to understand the bewildering world around her, brought to life by the luscious artwork of manga icon, Benjamin, Orange is a profoundly moving story of loss and redemption.


Orange was published in English by Tokyopop on February 1, 2009. It has also been published in Spanish by Deux Graphica Studio, and in German by Tokyopop Gmbh.

This is one of the most honest, relevant, and beautiful graphic novels I have ever read. While the story is by no means a happy one and may not resonate as strongly with everyone, there is no shortage of situations and thoughts to which readers can relate (and probably have related, at some point in their life). What this manga might lack in storyline is easily forgiven in light of Zhang Bin's amazing full-color artwork, painterly and often brilliantly vibrant in contrast to the tone of the story. The combination is both dichotomous and truly delightful at once - bright colors to balance out some read more

Orange show a needy youth, unable to building own life and to be happiness and which is losing the faith in the adults. The main character doesn't feel more nothing, she is losing in this chaotic world and she do strange thoughts about the life. But the love for a strange alcoholic man, who is at the appearance uncaring and inconclusive, it will changes herself.
The story is a lot strange in some point, but anyway intrigue until at the surreal ending. The characters practically are only Orange and the alcoholic man, they have a good characterization, especially for Orange we can see the whirlwind read more

The art in this graphic novel is outstanding. I first read this because a fellow staff member confiscated it during a summer camp for mature content. I spent a lot of time flipping through it, just looking at the art-- not even observing the story line. It doesn't matter that the main character Orange is hard to connect to because she's whiney and selfish, the art itself makes this manga worth reading at least once.
I had a very hard time liking the main character of this graphic novel. She was whiney and self entitled-- a condition which she never recovered from during the plot read more
