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.

i cant believe that it's only the fourth chapter! the plot is really good not to mention the art. i dont know why but it reminds me of aoharaido except the male lead is totally different and the plot is very different. maybe it's the art? either way both are good mangas and i wish that this manga will be adapted into an anime. i hope the plot keeps getting better coz so far i am impressed!

This is the freshest manga I've read in a long time. The premise is original, execution is great, pacing so far is not too fast or too slow. It has a tinge of mystery and melancholy. And as a plus the art is ridiculously cute, in a dreamy sort of way. The lead isn't a cry-baby but she's not strong either, however that's a part of the story.

The entire manga feels like eating an orange, I swear, It's just sweet and refreshing. Honestly, if you aren't reading this series, you're missing out on a lot.

* edit: I still really like this series but I'm confused on the time-travel aspect...I mean in the future, Kakeru is still dead (they flash forward and back) so does that mean they failed? Or do they live in an alternate timeline in the future? I'm not sure how the series is headed but I hope the author doesn't drag out the plot. The pace she's set right now (and the time frame!) seem perfect and would make this manga so so so much better. Short, bittersweet, and to the point.

This manga is soo light and peaceful, but it has tragedy slapped right across it and as previous user said below, that it has a bittersweet tone. I'm usually not a big fan of tragedies, but this one seems different. It feels that suwa will play a huge role in this series. I really want to see how this will play out, would it be a happy ending or a sad one. So far I predict that naho will save takeru but still will marry suwa smile

This seems like it's going to be a really good manga. I appreciate the thought and hardwork that comes into writing it, because it has such a unique and complicated plot. I just hope that it doesn't become a melodramatic hot mess.

Wow this manga is just... amazing.... It made me tear up in just one chapter.... So many feelings from this manga, nostalgia and regret, mystery and bittersweet happiness... I usually don't like mangas where they try to change the past for this one I sincerely hope the past can be changed... I love her artwork too it has a very ink-like texture to it.

Only two chapters are out but i can tell that this is a series that I'll be following doggedly. Showing what happens in the past and the future is a technique that I feel works extremely well in romances.

It's hard to say much about it without spoiling the story :/

EDIT: mmk, 4 chapters in and this is still awesome. biggrin
EDIT 2: Just wanted to emphasise the fact that this series is awesome. I don't rank many shoujo that highly, only perhaps 2 other long & still running series (Oresama Teacher and Reimei no Arcana) would be counted amongst my favourite manga ever. Hmm, getting side-tracked :/
It's fantastic.
EDIT 3: Up to 8 chapters now and the most recent twist has me so excited. \o/
I realise not many people would view one of the first comments for a series as it's ordered newest->oldest but...if you're reading this comment, go read Orange!!
EDIT 4: Just thought I'd add that the chapter where they discuss time-travel was kinda disappointing. It very much feels like it was shoved in there and hammered in.
Also, it's pretty hard to tell what Kakeru is actually thinking or feeling.

From 2 chapters, I have yet to find a flaw in the story. The pacing is perfection, the characters are beautifully portrayed, and the plot is so gripping. It's emotional and bittersweet, it makes you smile but it can even make you shed a tear.

By far, the best I've read from this mangaka. I highly recommend it. smile

The tone is very... serene, and the romance feels real. It's really, really interesting, but the mangaka better explain the time traveling letter.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Oh god, when we find out the reason why they shouldn't have invited Kakeru. akjsdhajglsjdhg--the regret, I can't even imagine. But it kind of annoys me. If future Naho only explained it earlier--gah--then Naho would have had a chance to change things.
