This week for Anime Sunday I’m covering another new series! It’s my Orange Episode 01 Impressions!

Plot Synopsis: In Matsumoto, Naho Takamiya, a second year high school student, receives letters sent from herself 10 years into the future. Her future self asks her to prevent her “biggest regret”, which has something to do with the new transfer student from Tokyo, a boy named Kakeru Naruse. At first skeptical, Naho begins to believe the letters as they accurately predict events. When the letter asks her not to invite Kakeru to go out for the first day, Naho and her friends (Hiroto Suwa, Takako Chino, Saku Hagita and Azusa Murasaka) decide to invite him anyway.

Plot: The plot of this first episode is a little confusing at first, but it’s pretty good. I’m definitely hooked and really want to binge read the series’ original source, but I haven’t had the time and won’t for a while. I’ll probably end up binge watching the entire series in the next few months.

Characters: The cast is pretty good, and while there are some annoying moments I didn’t really hate any character in particular.

Art: The art is great, and definitely feels like it came straight from the original source material only in color and motion. So they did a great job with it.

Music: It’s okay, but nothing special.

Overall: Definitely worth watching.

For those who like: Slice of Life, Drama, Romance, School Life, Great Plot, Amazing Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
