Orange is a romance anime about a highschool girl named Naho who receives a letter from herself, ten years in the future. The letter tells her of many regrets that she has and wants her past self to fix. Orange is a roller coaster of emotions that goes into the topics of regret, depression, and suicide as Naho and her friends try to save their depressed friend Kakeru. Orange breaks the stereotypical walls of any mainstream romance anime by touching new and deep subjects. It gives a new perspective on depression and the friends who try to help. It shows the struggle that those with depression face every day and the struggle of friends who try to find the right words to say to their loved ones. With relatable characters and situations, Orange can move anyone to tears. The idea of Orange was beautifully executed and teaches that everyone should truly live every day to the fullest and know that someone out there truly does love and care for them and will be there for them through the worst and best of times. I truly do recommend this anime to everyone. I hope you watch it and enjoy it as much as I did.
