Description
From Simple Scans:

In the Spring she was 16, Takamiya Naho receives a strange, but detailed letter from herself, ten years in the future. At first she thinks the letter is a prank, but then the things written in the letter actually happen, including the new transfer student that sits next to her in class, Naruse Kakeru.
The letter reads just like her diary entries, down to the same characters. It is not till two weeks later, when Kakeru shows back up at school, that Naho finishes the letter.

In the letter, her 27-year-old self tells her 16-year-old self that her biggest regret is that Kakeru is no longer with them in the future, and asks her to watch him closely.

While reading this manga, I'm always look forward to what the next letter gonna write about. Whenever Naho followed the letter and made Kakeru happy, I get this really good feeling. I hope Kakeru lives and marry Naho smile

I love love looooove this manga...never in my life have I read something like this. High school/teen life manga usually revolve around school life/puppy love, jealousy, comedy, gender bender, harem and what not..but this is nice and mellow....and it's JUST the right type of melodrama..(unlike Sprout..oh dear that manga made my emotions and head feel like it was in a tornado/rollercoaster.. it was too dramatic :<)
at first, I wish Naho would be more brave and not second guess herself.. but slowly, she's changing smile
It makes me really sad during Chapter 5 where the professor talked about parallel universes and how even if you change the past, you can't change the future. You can only make the present better..
I teared up in almost every chapter.. I'm anticipating for future releases!

Touching, poignant, nostalgic - just absolutely beautiful. Takano Ichigo does a great job of setting the tone and pace for this manga. As a reader you feel like you can connect with the heroine of the story because you've been in her shoes and have acted the way she has in one way or another. A great job of storytelling and I'm excited to see what will happen next!

This series is amazing. I feel so touched at times, teary and I honestly have no idea what's going to happen at the end. I really hope it's not a sad ending, but I highly doubt it won't be... There's just so many feelings going through me when I read this manga!! TOTALLY RECOMMENDED /10

Edit: ALL THESE FEELS FROM EVERY CHAPTER~~ I LOVE IT. I cried a river at chapter 8. Oh. My. God.

one of a kind...

at first, it doesn't seem like it...at first it's like kimi ni todoke...only with a "what if" situation...

it's sorta like the "lake house" but since it's not done yet, I'm just hoping for a happy ending...

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As of Ch 5, at the end of each chapter, the reader sees the "Future" Naho speaking with her husband, Suwa... The tone between the couple and their baby is so pleasant that it makes the reader think that Kakeru stays dead...unless the time slip theory really works and the author will continue the series and slowly change the covers to show kakeru...at best, the happy ending will be in a an alternate/parallel universe since so far none of the advice/past changes affected the future of the narrating "Naho"


Since the series starts when Naho is 16 (Kakeru can't be older than her by 2 years?) it will either be the longest/slowest series that progresses into the event (the reason to change the past) or...it will have a different arc(?) and end maybe when the characters (all of them) are 22...

who knows

ieorumwoiuwer D:
sometimes i wish the girl naho were a little bit more strong, but...she's doing what she can...and it ends kind of pretty; I think it won't be a long one, but every chapters makes me go like: awww,

the fact that one little thing can change the future, reminds me of butterfly effect....can't relate to the girl because I try to do things my own way,, without regret.. but it just has the pretty sense (the story)

READ IT!

This is such a great read! For some reason my heart was beating fast the entire time I was reading it and even though I've only read four chapters I love it! The main characters are pretty likeable and it's nice to see Naho change and get more courage. Her getting the letter from the future is really interesting too and I wonder how exactly the future will be changed cuz of that. I can't wait for the next chapter!! I'm scared and excited at the same time!

Just read the first 4 chapters and I can tell by now that this is a great work!
If you read this, ou get so man feelings yourself while reading: happiness, sorrow, worr, hope...
It's all in this manga.
This story has a very appealing atmosphere and the way of transporting all the feelings and thoughts to the reader are made perfectly.

I'm totally following this one...!

if you get a letter from the future about your past regrets, can you muster your courage to change your future?

as per title.

the author lay down the conclusion in the first chapter, while slowly beginning to reveal the story - making the manga having more feeling of anticipation of the plot itself. can the future be changed? or will tragedy unfolds its curtain for a second time - making fate unchanged..

I totally agree with the previous comments. This manga is great! The story is really intriguing, the characters adorable - especially Naho, Kakeru and Suwa - and Ichigo Takano's art is cute and lovely. I can't wait to read the new chapters! *_* The whole atmosphere reminds me of "Sunadokei", "Bokura Ga Ita" and "Ao Haru Ride", so if you like these manga you should give "Orange" a try as well.
