If you like Bradbury, then you'll like this. Heck, if you've never heard of him, then give this a chance, anyway. IOW read this. It's good. It's a great adaptation of his short stories. Hagio Moto definitely did them justice. The only thing I can knock it for is pacing, but that didn't trouble me enough to rate it less than 10.
