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.
