Orange Episode 12: Really? The Bermuda Triangle?


So, a while back, I made the offhand comment that you're better off writing a short story about how your group saved Kakeru and you'd get the same basic concept of this story. I'm starting to think that's what this series is. You can't honestly expect me to believe that someone is dumb enough to think they could write letters, toss them into the ocean, and have them show up at the exact correct spot in time to save your friend, right?

I honestly think if you pretend this series is just a story that the future group comes up with together to ponder how they would have saved Kakeru, then a lot of things make sense...like the fact that the past doesn't change too much and the fact that the time travel finds a way to conveniently work. Honestly, I feel like they were better off not trying to explain the time travel mechanic if they weren't trying to go for this.

Oh boy! Backstory!

Oh...this is the other future? That's...a little weird. I can't actually think of a good reason why they'd show us this.

I know I have a lot of complaints about this series, but Kakeru's idea to "test out" his confession with a different group of friends is actually fine with me. It feels like a pretty sensible thing to do...unfortunately, it backfires, but what can you do?

I'll honestly never have sympathy for characters like this. Meh...

...uhh...I actually have no problem with Kakeru thinking it's his fault his mother killed himself after reading this. It's kinda what the message suggests...

Awkward stuff?

Thank you, Hagita...you actually sound reasonable.

I don't like where this is going...

If you had any idea what a black hole is, you'd realize how stupid it is to believe that one exists in the Bermuda Triangle. This is just...not okay.

You are correct, Hagita! The only way the letters could possibly make it to the exact point you want is if the time travel worked as some sort of plot convenience. Oh wait...
