Naho Takamiya's first day of her sophomore year of high school is off to an uneasy start. After waking up late, she receives a strange letter addressed to her. However, the letter is from herself—10 years in the future! At first, Naho is skeptical of the note; yet, after witnessing several events described to take place, she realizes the letter really is from her 26-year-old self. The note details that Naho's future life is filled with regrets, and she hopes that her younger self can correct the mistakes that were made in the past. The letter also warns her to keep a close eye on the new transfer student, Kakeru Naruse. Naho must be especially careful in making decisions involving him, as Kakeru is not around in the future. With the letter as her guide, Naho now has the power to protect Kakeru before she comes to regret it once more.

Aside from the slight supernatural letters, Orange is a heartfelt realistic drama about the importance of dealing with depression carefully.


Bland archetypal characters and awkward/forced dialogue amidst a badly executed time travel story hellbent on teenage melodrama.


School life drama with plenty of feels. I liked this a lot, though I found Naho annoying. Solid concept decently executed.


Lady tries to change her future by erasing her daughter from existence and dating that sexy boy from her high school days. Yaaawn~ fest


Show about suicide and depression. Not too bad, kind of frustrating at times because I wish they had just been honest with him. Made me sad.


The main Character really really annoys me

goodbye reality

Really emotional and isn’t afraid to cover hard subjects. I love where this anime went and it’s definitely something everyone should see
