    Just started reading it. It reminds me a lot of Katuhiro Otomo's "Memories"(the first story)

    How does the manga hold up against the anime? I have the anime box set sitting here and am wondering if I should read the manga first or if at all. Thoughts?

    Read the manga first. They did switch up when the characters are introduced compared to the manga. At least read the first three volumes before you start watching. Chapter 1 doesn't even occur until around episode 14~15, so the time line is different. I decided to read first then watch. The anime is amazing, they do a great job with the 0 gravity animation effect. Make sure to listen to the japanese commentary, it's insightful and funny. ^_^
