Looks interesting, hopefully some group will pick it up. I still wonder why she suddenly dropped Orange without giving any reason why she did so. Some internal conflict with the publisher? I can't think of much else, considering how she's starting a new series not long after.
@windy van: You're not alone. The story is sad but I didn't cry either. But I did feel the sad and hurt feelings.
I'm not very happy to know she has new series because she leaves Orange hanging open at the other side. I guess I'll still check it out if someone scans it, but I have high hopes for Orange too. Let's hope for the best.
@phio_chan: Waahh, I thought I'm the only one who didn't cry..
Yes, she promised to finished Orange before, and considering how many fans asking for continuation of Orange, I hope she will fulfill our request..
Even if it's not in the near future, i'll be waiting..

Hey, let's share your opinions..
I don't feel too sad when reading Orange because honestly, I roots for Suwa..
He is really sweet and kind, puts everyone before him, so I feel happy for him and Nao, that they could be together in the future..
What makes Nao and others regreted it so much? Coz Kakeru's death was happened about ten years ago, yet they couldn't get over it. It's not really their fault after all, they didn't know about Kakeru's Mom, they didn't know what Kakeru was thinking about. And I can't get why the future Nao and Suwa decided to change the future to save Kakeru, they're already married, have that cute child. Their decisions to save Kakeru will results in their child inexistense. Didn't they consider this fact? I wonder..
But, yes.. When you loved your friend so much, you will try everything to save them from death. But for me, Kakeru's death itself is one fate that they should face..
People dying, what they tried to do will absolutely change someone's life. They should feel responsible for it. If Kakeru's being alive will results in his happiness then that's good. But if it makes his burden larger, it will make him suffer for more..
Gosh, did it sound too harsh? Sorry, coz I felt so complicated when I read Orange. Yes, I wants them to have a happy ending for all, including Kakeru. His death makes me sad too..
The only thing that I could accept is if there are parralel universe possibilities as people saying, or the fact that Kakeru didn't die and dating Nao will not change Nao and Suwa marriage. I mean they(Nao and Kakeru) could be dating, but then break up and Nao still marry Suwa..
What about you? Did you think differently?
What I said earlier in this thread was that I believe that we can't really stop death. Delayed maybe, but what's dead usually must stay dead, otherwise the price will be someone else's life. So I'm not yet sure of a happy ending between Nao and Kakeru.
Which is why we need this series to be continued.... Takano Ichigo, pretty please.
Maybe I have to reread it again. haha..
If it's like that then the parallel world theory should be right. I hope it's like that. That's better than they wanted to change their current life in their timeline..
And your last sentence is what I agree the most.. lol
Takano Ichigo, you should keep your promise for continuing this one for us..
Orange is coming back! It will resume in another magazine according to this news, but there's no fixed date yet. Still awesome news, I really feared this would never get resumed, now it's only a matter of time

Isn't that just the mangaka's new work "Re:Collection"?
According to Heiji the first new Orange chapter will be released next February.
volumes 1 and 2 of Orange with the new editor have been released. The cover can be found on the twitter of manganewsjapon and probably in this site volume cover thread.
Chapter 10 is available to read on Crunchyroll.
Beautiful color pages and Suwa is such a good friend
Chapter 11 is available on Crunchyroll!
I really like how this chapter delved into the whole issue of the future changing and the contents of the letters not being as relevant as they used to be. Suwa and Naho used to depend on the letters like a crutch, doing as they said (or trying to), beating themselves over not doing as the letter said... It will be interesting to see what actions they take now, when they have the end goal in mind but not the step-by-step guidance the letters used to provide.
It was a pretty big revelation that Suwa was also receiving letters a few chapters ago... But now the other two girls are acting a little strange as well. Makes me wonder if they have been receiving letters as well. Somehow I hope not, it would make it seem less special for Naho and Suwa... :/
On a side note, I must say I really love this series. I'm so glad it's back from its hiatus and still going strong! I just hope Takano-sensei actually means to keep it going, when she first returned from the hiatus I had suspicions that she would just hurry the story to its ending to appease the fans, then go on and concentrate on her new series Re:Collection (which I'm enjoying quite a lot too).
Yeah this is a good one, glad to be working on it.
I guess I am kind of... nervous. Kakeru seems so fragile inside, and sometimes the act of overprotection can cause other kind of troubles to this kind of person. Naho and Suwa had thought of that too, and so they tried to "modify" their actions to accommodate the letters but doing it somehow differently. It's very interesting. My heart goes to Suwa and his situation, even worse for the other Suwa who had to send a letter to his copy telling him to forget his feelings for Naho.
About Naho's lines that her actions might change the future so much that the letters could also be changed. It's been such a long time that I forget, but they are independently in different world, right? So Naho#2's actions cannot change the fact that Kakeru#1 died. So they are trying to save Kakeru#2. I guess the characters in world#2 do not know this yet?
