In an alternate history of the aftermath of World War II, Japan has been cleaved in half, with the south—Honshu and the other islands—allied with the United States and the northern island Hokkaido annexed by the enigmatic Union. It was on Hokkaido that a mysterious tower had been built, a strand of metal reaching up out of the atmosphere, visible from the northern tip of Honshu. In 1996, three teenagers, Hiroki, Takuya and Sayuri, make a pact—they will build an experimental aircraft, almost invisible to surveillance, cross over to Hokkaido and unlock the secrets of the tower. Their dream was never realized, because Sayuri was sent to Tokyo for treatment after she fell into a coma. It is now three years later. The rosy illusions of youth have fallen away, but not the unbreakable strength of the trio’s promise. The truth of the tower will be uncovered, and with it, the link between it and Sayuri’s mysterious, carefully tended condition.

This is a manga version of the film "The Place Promised in Our Early Days"

The Place Promised in Our Early Days.   
Rating: 7.4 / 10.0

Honestly, I'm prefer the movie. ^ o ^)/
Maybe because I watched it first, or maybe because Makoto Shinkai's brilliant animation (background etc), or maybe because a whole earwarming music ^ p ^)/
Note: I'm not a fan of Makoto (usually the plot isn't my cup of), but this one is exception.

I'm certainly love the movie than this manga. ///^///^///

Oh. Nothing wrong with this manga adaptation. And like usual adaptation, some of it's change. Some of it more detail, some of it cutted or you may say it's told in a different way. I like Sahara sensei's art^^ Hiroki in here looks so gloomy-cool than Takuya. But, somehow the feel in movie is much stronger than in the manga (at very least-- for me). Even if I like the art, I'm a bit uneasy when seeing Hiroki. He looks so mature. Too mature. And that not just Hiroki^^. The plot is mostly same with the movie, but the feeling is slightly different. If the movie have high and low tension, the manga feels somewhat like 5cm per Second's aura^^' deep and gloomy.
