Ratings & Reviews
(One of) The Best
by A.J. -
Orange is one of the greatest series of all time, in ANY format, and would probably be THE greatest, if the explanation for the time-traveling letter wasn't so dumb (one of the rare cases where the explanation for time travel would have been better left up to "plot"). But in no way does that ruin the series.
This is the most emotional and (one of the most) realistic anime I have ever had the pleasure of viewing. There is NO fanservice, so it is an honest drama. The topics it covers and the themes it presents are completely relatable to all of us at some point in our lives. I can't say too much without spoiling the story, but it's just so beautiful, you should buy this even if you haven't seen it. Trust me, you WON'T regret it.
I love that they added the Essentials option for this series. It lets me purchase it in the only 2 formats I want my anime in, and for the ridiculously affordable price of under $30. You won't find much anime as good as this for so low a price, so BUY IT NOW!
Great series, but technical issues.

A series with it's own twist in high school life. Interesting characters and an intense story line.
I purchased this Essentials copy due to the dual format of Blu-ray and Digital. I would have scored it higher (and should have scored it lower) due to dubbing volume issues. Most of the time you have to crank up the volume just to hear regular conversations, and much higher when two particular characters are conversing. Then the title and closing songs play very loud and need to be turned down. I will admit this took away from the ability to enjoy the series as I normally would. I don't know if this is a disc issue, but I've experienced it with other Funimation dubs as of late.

In terms of visuals it has a really beautiful style. There are some moments where the style changes a bit for comedic effect which I thought worked better in the manga but it's no big deal. The English dub is pretty good and the soundtrack is alright but nothing too special. What I really liked most about Orange is the time travel aspect is well explained. I think this is definitely worth a buy.
