Orange: The Complete Collection 1
Seven Seas, 2016
On the day that Naho begins 11th grade, she receives a letter from herself ten years in the future. At first, she writes it off as a prank, but as the letter’s predictions come true one by one, Naho realizes that the letter might be the real deal. Her future self tells Naho that a new transfer student, a boy named Kakeru, will soon join her class. The letter begs Naho to watch over him, saying that only Naho can save Kakeru from a terrible future. Who is this mystery boy, and can Naho save him from his destiny? This is the heart-wrenching sci-fi romance that has over million copies in print in Japan!
I never read manga.
So Orange was a slow start. Once I understood where the story was going, I enjoyed it. However, the way the characters are going about changing the future isn’t the most realistic or healthy. I suppose since time travel is involved, realistic isn’t necessary. Some of the logistics involved with the letters and time travel don’t make complete sense to me, but as long as I don’t think about that too hard, it’s enjoyable.
I might even read Collection 2!
