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.

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.

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.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
* 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.
