Spoilers?: Very light.
In this long-awaited sequel to the critical and commercial hit, orange: future contains two stories that continue from where the series ended.
This is the conclusion to the Orange series, a tag-along volume.
It goes back and forth in time line, and back and forth in each version of their lives. Much like when the series started, we get to see the version where Kakeru lived in the future, where they all meet up again as they're all grown. And we also get to see how the original versions went on after Kakeru passed. How Naho and Suwa grew closer and started dating. The small moments that led up to it, the time that they mourned and Naho had to heal. How they moved on, kept going, even as they kept Kakeru in mind and never forgot.
This was a really sweet final volume. We got to fill in some of the pieces, and catch up with both sides of the story. It was really nice.
