Synopsis

Hina Satou is a 13-year-old who loves figure skating and lives in a port town in Miyagi Prefecture.

With sad memories of the earthquake and memories of a gentle mother, the cheerful Hina continues to move toward her dreams.

Background

Production of Omoi no Kakera was led by NHK Sendai Broadcasting, which brought together six NHK broadcast stations in the Tohoku region in a project to support reconstruction efforts for the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. A two-minute pilot was first screened at the 2015 NHK Trophy ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating in Nagano and later on NHK networks across Japan.

My main gripe is that this wasn't long enough to actually develop half the characters. Despite that, I really did enjoy the feels trip this takes you on.

The story itself feels incomplete as the story really has no time to build to any sort of resolution, although it does try.

I feel like all the pieces are here to have a very good 1 season long anime, or maybe just a full feature length movie, but read more

This is really good, and it could easily become a full 12 episode anime, like for real the setting is good, and if you polish the character developement, it could be a master piece anime, I think that there's good potential here the character designs are really good and the animations are really good as well, and you have good elements for an interesting story, it would be wasteful to just leave this as is.
That's basicly what I have to say about it, I really want them to expand on this and make a full series, that would be amazing, I think (though I do read more
