Description: Naho Takamiya receives letters from her future-self ten years away. The first letter describes events that take place on the first day of school, which includes the transfer of Kakeru Naruse. While Naho and her friends befriend Kakeru, Naho learns that the purpose of her future-self’s letters is to save Kakeru’s life. Now, Naho must struggle to change the future for the better in order to save Kakeru before it’s too late.

– * The parallel world aspect of this manga is the only thing that makes it sci-fi-ish. It’s like time travel mixed in with parallel universes.
– I’ve read the entire manga, and I have not yet watched the anime.
– The whole sci-fi element in this manga, makes it very different from most shoujo mangas.
– I have to admit that I’ve had very mixed feelings about the ships in this manga. Mainly because I’ve never been a big fan of (the concept of) changing the future/past.
