This year's November issue of Futabasha's Monthly Action magazine announced on Saturday that manga artist Ichigo Takano will draw a two-part spinoff of her Orange manga. The spinoff, titled Orange -Suwa Hiroto-, will focus on Spoiler, highlight text to read: [Naho and Suwa's lives in the world where Kakeru passed away at age 17.] The first half will run in the next issue on October 25.
A special edition Orange one-shot manga ran in the magazine in February, and artist Matsupon began a gag manga spinoff titled Sorigerisu in the magazine in March. The spinoff is based on a fictional manga Orange character Saku Hagita reads in the story.
Takano (Yume Miru Taiyō) began the original shōjo manga in Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine in 2012, but moved it to Futabasha's seinen magazine Monthly Action in 2013. Takano ended the manga in August 2015 and Futabasha published the fifth and final volume in November 2015. Crunchyroll published the manga in English digitally. Seven Seas Entertainment published the original manga in North America as two omnibus volumes, and it describes the manga's story:
Everyone has regrets in life. So who wouldn't take the chance to change the past if given the opportunity? When sixteen-year-old Takamiya Naho receives a mysterious letter, claiming to be from her twenty-seven-year-old self, her life is suddenly thrown into flux. The letter tells her that a new transfer student by the name of Naruse Kakeru will be joining her class, and to keep her eye on him. But why? Naho must decide what to make of the letter and its cryptic warning, and what it means not only for her future, but for Kakeru's as well.
The manga inspired a live-action film in December 2015 and a television anime that premiered in July. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
