As part of Ichigo Takano’s ‘orange’ manga’s 10th year anniversary since the serialization started in 2012, Volume 7, a new volume for the manga will be released as originally announced last 2019.

The new volume is set for release this April 12, 2022 and is described by its author Ichigo Takano as the "true final volume of the manga". It will follow 'another story' set in a world where Kakeru Naruse was able to be saved.

Takano gave her comment on the manga's 7th volume release.

(Rough translation) This year is the 10th year since the serialization started, and it is also the year Naho, wrote a letter. I was wondering what the regrets I will have before the serialization would be 10 years from now, but I still regret it without fading. I was finally able to know the feelings of Naho and others 10 years later. Volume 7 is an ordinary everyday story with the theme of "living." It's natural to live... but while experiencing difficult things - good things and bad things, it seems fun to live, sometimes tiring, and for someone who still wants to save someone who is suffering somewhere, I thought I would draw it. Volume 7 is the true final volume. I am deeply grateful to everyone who read it. The final volume was drawn with the emotions as written in 'the letter to everyone'. - Ichigo Takano, 'orange' author

Another part of the 10th anniversary is the upcoming original painting exhibition which will be held from March 26th to April 10th in Japan. The exhibit will showcase duplicate original drawings that will reproduce the world view of "orange" and event-limited goods will also be sold.
