Cross another one off the list. Another of the manga picked by bookstore workers and fans as one to watch in 2015 is getting a TV anime adaptation. Ichigo Takano's shoujo manga series Orangealready the subject of a live-action movie, is now getting a TV anime this summer. 

 

Crunchyroll Manga describes the series

"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...

 

Hiroshi Hamasaki (Steins;Gate, TerraFormars) directs the TMS ENTERTAINMENT / Telecom Animation Film production with Yuko Kakihara ( Chihayafuru 2 and Persona4 the ANIMATION) writing the script and Nobuteru Yuki (Kids on the Slope, Yamato 2199) on character designs.

 

The fifth and final volume of the manga was released in November 2015, but Manga Action is celebrating with a special edition one-shot in the April edition, out February 25th.
