Beautiful image boards are also available, plus get the backstory
A brand new visual book for the TV anime series, orange is now complete and available for everyone’s eyes.
This visual book captures the open and vast scenic locations in Matsumoto city, in Nagano prefecture. In the special illustration, the character designer Yuki Nobuteru, has drawn Naho, Kakeru, Hiroto, Azusa, Takako, and Saku all looking up into the sky on the Chikuma bridge, which is located in the eastern part of Matsumoto city. Below the bridge is the Susuki river, and in the distance is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan, known as Utsukushigahara Highland.
Among the clear blue sky appears the catch phrase, ‘my future tears helped me change,’ which helps to represent the meaning of friendship, the pain that love can bring, and the risks you need to take in life in order to change your future.
There are also special sneak peeks into places that hold a deep meaning for Naho and Kakeru such as ‘Agata Forest Park,’ as well as an image board of Naho’s bedroom. You can take a look at the actual image and compare it with the image board, and you will notice the great details that were put in to make these visuals breathtakingly beautiful.
