Orange by Ichigo Takano
Orange, v. 2 by Ichigo Takano - 384 pages
The day Naho starts 11th grade, she receives a letter from her future self giving her directions on how to save the life of new friend Kakeru. Working with the letter's directions and with the help of her friends, can Naho save him?
This was an unusual manga. It was a lot more serious in content than a lot of manga series that I have read in the past, even with the inclusion of the time travel story line. The themes of self-confidence, depression, and suicide run through every story told in the collection. I would recommend this to those who like more serious stories or a little mysticism with their realistic stories.
