Crunchyroll describes the Orange TV anime as follows:
"During the spring of her second year of high school, Naho receives a letter. Its sender is herself from ten years in the future.
Naho thinks it's a prank at first, but when the things written in the letter start to come true one by one, she realizes that the letter is telling her of events that will happen in her future.
It tells her that she'll fall in love with Kakeru, a new student who transfers to her school... and that he'll die in the winter of his 17th year.
After learning the regrets and wishes of the 26-year-old Naho following Kakeru's death, what can the 16-year-old Naho do differently?"
