posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Shōjo manga about girl who gets letter from her future self debuted in 2013

The June issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine will announce on Saturday that Ichigo Takano's Orange shōjo manga is inspiring a live-action film adaptation. The film is slated for a December release in TOHO theaters.

Crunchyroll publishes the manga in English digitally, and describes the story:

"What can I do now to prevent a future without Kakeru?" In the spring of my second year of high school, I received a letter from "myself", ten years in the future. It urged the 16-year-old me to take action so I wouldn't have the same regrets...

Takano (Yume Miru Taiyō) began the shōjo manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine in 2012, but moved it to Monthly Action in 2013. Futabasha published the fourth compiled volume of the manga on February 20. The series has more than 1.5 million copies in print. The manga series ranked at #5 in on Honya Club's Top 15 Recommended Manga by Bookstores list for 2015.
