  • A Tear Jerker of an Anime
    This anime is short, sweet, and heartbreaking. Sure, the plot has a lot of holes and things weren't really fleshed out as much as it should have been but that's not what keeps you watching. The main character is shy, awkward and at times a bit annoying. However, she's also relatable if you have similar issues with anxiety and shyness as she does. She doesn't realize how brightly she shines simply ...

  • Few Anime Have Had Me Crying THIS HARD
    This was an absolute tear jerker and I cannot recommend it enough. Aside from the touching story and the fun set of characters, the show brings up some very important issues that I think few anime have explored to the same extent as Orange has done it.

    Although the main character struck me as quite plain in the first couple of episodes, I quickly realized that might have been the point of her, ...

  • This is a bit different than it seems at first
    So give it a couple episodes, even if high school romance isn't your thing. You'll end up surprised a bunch of times once this story unwinds, and the animation is very interesting and sharp in the meantime!

  • The Best of Its Kind
    Just imagine Your Lie in April, My Little Monster, and Say I Love You but 100 percent better. This show exceeded my expectations by far. I binged it in about a day. It's a sweet story with an original twist. The issues the characters face are also very realistic and sometimes moving. This show has a lot to say about friendship, love, and mental health. It is an amazing show I'm sure I won't soon ...

    One of my favorites!
    this show gets so realistic about depression and suicidal ideation, but at the same time is so empowering and inspiring and life-affirming. Every single character is such a good person, it brings tears to my eyes. And they all care about Kakeru so much. this is so much more than just shoujo

  • Interesting Premise, Frustrating Characters
    I thought the premise of this show was fascinating, but, as usual with slice of life animes, I found myself getting frustrated with the main characters. The main character, Naho, is so incredibly timid! She can't seem to do anything herself, even give a guy she likes a box of chocolates. I mean, come on! She knows what's at stake, but it isn't until the second half of the series that she starts ...

  • yes, you can become emotionally invested!
    Orange was one of the most emotionally influential anime series I've seen in a very long time. There is such depth within each episode that offers genuine character development and a smooth transition within the story development. The viewer can't help but be drawn into every situation and it's almost impossible not to become emotionally invested for each character. One warning, this is not a ...

    Great show but the most frustrating
    I really like the plotline and story but
    IT IS SO F*CKING FRUSTATING TO WATCH. The main female protagonist got a letter, from the f*ckin future, that told her what to do to stop a friend/her crush from committing suicide and she's over here like "omfg i can't do it." If I got a letter from the future that told me what to do to basically make my life easier, hell, I'd do ...
