This is the first part of the three part manga. The last book of the series is rather oddly drawn and not in the same style of the first two books. The manga series is good, but not as beautifully depicted as the anime of the same name. The story is a bit more fantasy laden than Shinkai's more recent work although it relies heavily on his usual themes of unrequited love and the quest to maintain friendship and love against impossible odds. As with most works by Shinkai, the stories are shorter than other manga fair which can get stretched out to over ten books. This three book set (with a fourth special edition out this year) breaks his usual model for brevity. The only knock is that at times the series tends to slip into "Freaky Friday" mode, but the risk of falling into slapstick comedy is for the most part avoided.
