YesAsia Editorial Description

Following Kuro no Onna Kyoushi and Mare, Tsuchiya Tao (Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno) and Yamazaki Kento (No Longer Heroine), two of the current hottest young rising stars in Japanese entertainment, work together for the third time in the fantasy youth romance Orange. Helmed by TV director Hashimoto Mitsujiro (Suzuki Sensei), the film is based on Takano Ichigo's slice-of-life romance manga about a high school girl who receives a message from the future to save her classmate and crush.

One day, high school student Takamiya Naho (Tsuchiya Tao) receives a letter from her future self. In it, the 26-year-old Naho tells her 16-year-old self of one of the biggest regrets of her life: not doing enough to prevent the death of Naruse Kakeru, a transfer student from Tokyo whom the older Naho says her younger self will soon fall for. After learning that in 26-year-old Naho's world, Naruse dies at the age of 17, the younger Naho races to change the future.

Not another shojo teen romance
It's easy to group Orange in with all the other light and fluffy shojo manga-based teen romances, especially since it even stars the genre's current two most prolific representatives, Yamazaki Kento and Tsuchiya Tao. Indeed, Orange, based on Takano Ichigo's manga, does have many typical elements of the genre, including a core group of friends, crushes and familiar youth film rites and imagery like sports day, summer festival, fireworks and cherry blossoms. However, more than a story of young love and friendship, Orange is a story about coping with feelings of guilt, loss and depression.

Tsuchiya Tao plays high school sophomore Naho who suddenly finds a letter from her future self in her bag. The letter pleads for her to help transfer student Kakeru, whom she will befriend and grow to like. However, Kakeru carries a heavy burden within that will lead to his premature death at the age of 17. Realizing that the events described in the letter are true, Naho tries to do the small yet significant things mentioned in the letter to lift Kakeru's spirits and show him that he is not alone. As time continues to pass day by day, the soft-spoken Naho struggles to express her feelings and to reach out to Kakeru, but is it enough to change what's to come?

Most of Yamazaki Kento's slew of youth romances don't require much more from him than to look the part of a manga hero, but in Orange, he gives his best performance as the silently hurting Kakeru. The actor shows believable vulnerability, irritability and despair as a teenager who blames himself for the death of his emotionally unstable mother. Besides Moriguchi Yoko's brief but impactful appearance as Kakeru's mother, the rest of the characters and performances lack the complexity of Yamazaki's Kakeru. Tsuchiya Tao is pretty much her usual sweet and likable self. Meanwhile, Naho and Kakeru's friends lack individual qualities and development besides being supportive friends, which makes reveals and emotional moments involving them feel a bit awkward. The simple characterization of the friends, however, also helps to reinforce the world of Orange.

Teen films are often wrought with contrived drama but the school days of Orange's protagonists seem relatively simple and drama-free. The friends are nice and cheery, and the only remotely mean person in the film – Kakeru's jealous ex – is a non-factor. Much of Orange appears to be a rosy yet realistic portrait of normal high school life, which makes Kakeru's ongoing hidden struggle with grief and depression all the more realistic and devastating.

It's best to not think too much about the time-travel aspect of Orange. Though the film slips in some theorizing about parallel universes in its too long running time of 140 minutes, the letter mainly serves as a magical what-if device. A decade later, when Naho and her friends reunite, they finally dare to ask Kakeru's grandmother for the truth about his death, and face their regrets over what they could have done to save their friend. Naho's letter to her past self creates an alternative timeline where she and her friends can take notice of Kakeru's warning signs and take action to prevent his death. Though this alternative scenario is born from desperation and bargaining, the story becomes one of hope and healing.
