I absolutely adored this manga. It's so cute and beautiful. I was crying by the end of it.

Naho Takamiya has a secret. She has received a letter from herself, ten years in the future. Naho’s future self implores her to value and support her new friend, Kakeru Naruse. Naho of the future reveals a number of regrets and offers suggestions to improve how certain situations pan out. In doing so, Naho believes she will be able to save Kakeru’s life.

Despite not personally being a manga reader, I fell in love with the characters and their mission. The artwork and dialogue is gentle and subtle, the perfect reflection of Naho's character.

This is a graphic novel; unreadable for anyone over the age of 40, methinks. Book reads from back to front and dialogue is repetitive and puerile.

Wow. This was a really good book. It was depressing, though! I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like reading sad things, because suicide is a major theme. It has a very interesting plot involving time travel and parallel universes. It has a very few swear words, like b**** a** d*** and a**h***, but they are VERY RARELY used. A**h**e is used ONCE, so is a**, so is d***, but b**** is used like 3 or 4 times. I really liked this manga. Also, it said 'to be continued' at the end, so it was not a complete collection.
The whole thing was like MAJORR feels and really sweet, if you are fine with sad things, I recommend it!

Oh, and if you're wondering if your kid should read it: a character joked about 'getting busy with your girlfriend,' which would probably go over kid's heads and it never happened, just mindless joking. There are two boys who both like the main girl, and the characters know this, but one jokes and asks if they are dating because they were hanging out together, so it was just mindless joking again. Some characters do date, they are all boys dating girls (not judging anyone, just saying). There is absolutely NO sexual content in this book. And, if you're a Christian, they DO say 'Oh my God' a couple times.
I'm only writing this because Common Sense and Plugged In have not reviewed this for kids. I still wouldn't recommend it to kids because of the serious subject matter, but if you don't mind reading it, I say GO FOR IT!

Just heartbreaking. This is a beautifully done manga. The subject matter can be hard to talk about, but that's part of the point - ignoring it didn't work out for the characters the first time around, and to have any hope of things turning out better, they will have to face it head on.

A group of friends regret not being able to save their friend who died in a bike accident in high school. A letter from Naho's future self gives her instructions on how to save Kakeru, but will her efforts be enough?

Lovely SF romance, light on the SF, about a group of friends whose love for each other is enough to reach through time itself.
