At the end of the talk show segment in the one-hour special of TV anime Orange, the cast members announced that the series will be receiving an anime film. Titled Orange: Mirai (Orange: Future), the film will have a limited two-week screening throughout Japan starting November 18 with tickets going on sale October 14.

The film will be narrated from the viewpoint of Suwa, as he continues to support Kakeru and Naho's relationship. It will also feature an original story written by the series' original creator Ichigo Takano, which takes place after the events in the manga and TV anime. The tagline in the key visual reads, "Since that day, I've always wanted to show those two this future—."

The cast members and production staff will reprise their roles in the film with Naomi Nakayama as the chief director. The ending song of the TV anime Mirai by Kobukuro will be reused as the theme song.

Orange published from March 2012 to August 2015 and initially serialized in Bessatsu Margaret in 2012 but later moved to Monthly Action magazine in 2013 after returning from over a year hiatus. Crunchyroll released the manga digitally in English since January 2014 and Seven Seas published two omnibus volumes from January 26 to May 31, 2016. The series previously inspired a live-action film in December 2015. The first half of a two-part spin-off about future Suwa titled Orange: Suwa Hiroto will run in the December issue of Monthly Action magazine on October 25.

A good Tv series. But I hope they can make a worthy movie for it.

I don't get why everybody pities Suwa. You should know - if you watched the anime - that at the end of the story there are two parallel realities established. This is the premise of the whole story in the first place.

One has a living Kakeru, who (probably) gets the MC.

In the other one Kakeru is dead and Suwa builds a family with the MC. They even have children.

So where is the problem?

I myself found the conclusion to be quite satisfying. Or maybe I'm misunderstanding what the people don't like about Suwa's treatment in the story?


Well I think it's because he loves her, but he's supporting Kakeru anyway.
If I'd love someone, it'd be very hard to support someone else to have a relationship with that person. It wouldn't comfort me or make me happy to think there's another world out there where I'm with the one I love.
It'd make me just sad. So that's why I feel a bit sad for Suwa, even he's a great friend and putting his friends happiness before his.

But I'm happy anyway that we saw him with Naho.
I also wanted Kakeru to feel happiness, so I loved the ending.

I'm not sure about the others but since I'm a fan of Suwa (I love him more than kakeru) I really want him to end up with someone else instead of thinking about Noha and Kakeru. He loved her so much, but she loved him as a friend. I still didn't watch the anime, im not sure if it's the same as manga tho. Now about this movie, we are going to see what's happened to Suwa in the future right? Isn't that great?

Suwa already had his happy ever after. Why not give it to HAGITA!?!

Yay, thanks for spoiling the ending.
Although I should have expected that...

Sep 26, 2016 11:33 AM by TrashDax

seriously, another sequel of thsi boring thing?

Sep 26, 2016 10:05 AM by Whoahoho

Unnecessary but no harm to watching it

Sep 26, 2016 9:03 AM by DannyTheDonkey

Hopefully Suwa still ends up getting that Naho ass.

Sep 26, 2016 9:01 AM by Nvortex

I'm just happy. 'Orange' anime was pretty amazing for me, so I can't wait to watch the movie!

More Suwa = good news

Sep 26, 2016 5:48 AM by Orange

I liked Suwa the best so this is great news.

Sep 26, 2016 5:40 AM by Kotarou_

The manga was great. I felt various emotions while reading it. But the tv anime sucked badly thanks to some unknown studio adapting it. But since the movie will be from Suwa's point of view and it'll show more of what happens afterwards, I have hopes for it. Because he was the best character in the series!! I hope he'll get happiness too!

This is like a wish come true for me. I've always wanted to know about what happened to Suwa after Naho and Kakeru ended up together or after Oranged ended.
I just wish it will be fully written by the real author, since I can only consider it a canon if it's written by the manga author.

And the wait begins...
