Orange is a Summer 2016 anime that left a lot of viewers sobbing by the end of it. One day, Naho Takemiya begins receiving mysterious messages from her future self with instructions for how to prevent her close friend Kakeru from taking his own life. At first, she doesn't take it seriously, but as the events in her life begin to resemble those described in the letter more closely, she realizes that she needs to figure out how to follow their instructions, and fast. It's an emotionally intense, beautiful anime - but are there other shows like it? Of course!

What is the best anime like Orange? That depends on what you like about the series. If you're in it for the time travel, you might want to make a movie night out of Mirai or The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Or binge-watch Steins;Gate or ERASED. If you're looking for something with a sharp focus on characters working through grief, but can take or leave the time travel, check out Your Lie in April or March Comes In Like A Lion. No matter what your preferences, there's something on this list that's perfect for you. 

Vote up the anime similar to Orange that you think fans will most appreciate - you'll help other people find their next great watch.
