That's a real sad news that she's going to stop after Orange. I like her artwork quite much, being simple but lovely as it is. But at least it's a good sign that she's planning to continue Orange and finish it properly. I guess the problem is whether it'll still be published, because manga scan groups depend on that, no? >_<
This is so sad and disappointing. I just hope that the mangaka will continue and finish orange. I don't want it to end like this and a rushed ending is definitely not what I want for this series.
at 9 chapters I don't even think they'll force her to make an ending. They can simply cancel it if its that short.
Orange is not in the lineup of the magazine anymore so I don't think we will ever see a new chapter of this serie.

that's sad, it showed a lot of promise.
Very sad to see this happen. The last chapter was not really that "hanging" but still, I'm pretty gutted by the fact that this manga is cancelled - even if that's probably not the most appropriate word for the situation.
Ah... this is really sad news for such a promising manga I was afraid it would come to this. I do wonder why she suddenly decided to throw aside her pen and stop drawing manga, and why she stopped right in the middle of one! Kinda strikes me as a bit irresponsible but I'm sure she had her reasons.
Orange doesn't run in BETSUMA anymore. It seems that they moved it to another magazine but we don't know which yet. The mangaka did announce that she will quit making manga but only after finishing orange. I hope this still stands as I don't want this manga to end like this.
I really hope it doesn't end like this. Not many manga can make me this sad when it's ending, and it's at the 9th chapter. ;_;
Takano Ichigo started new series in another magazine..
I wonder if she would continue this one..
This is very good series, the plot is really beautiful with pretty art, though i'm not that sad i could shed a tears as people says when they read it.. haha..
Am i a little insensitive here? This series is sad but it was not so depressing for me..
But it was definitely better than most shoujo out there..
I tried her previous complete serie Dreaming Sun but did not really fell into it like I did for Orange. After a few chapters the main character annoyed me and I lost interest.
so if she's started a new manga it means Orange is really done for right?
If anyone is looking for a replacement for Orange, I'd recommend trying Stand Up. It's a new series, only three chapters long, but it has a very similar thoughtful, introspective mood. More of a straight romance, without the tragic undertones, but Stand Up should still satisfy Orange fans.
