This movie held my smile throughout its screen-time. The art, comfortable and mesmerizing, reminded me of nature. Mitsuha Miyazumi and Taki Tachiba met each other in an incredible way. They woke up one morning in each other’s body, and as they try to find out the reason, they fight with fate. This movie is interesting to watch, as its plotline carries the most important factor of the story. Overall, the ending is satisfying too!

Simple, sweet and enchanting. This had me shook at some parts and melted by its dialogues. Orange narrates the story of alternate universes. Naho Takiyama is in high school when she receives a strange letter from her future self. The letter tells her to save  Kakeru Naruse, who isn’t with her and her friend group in future. Her future self is determined to not have any regrets in the future, and in order to guide her past self, she informs about the main occurrences which may help the present Naho lead a different life. Orange remains one of my favourite high school romance anime, full of life lessons and a twist of science fiction.
