Hina Satou is a 13-year-old who loves figure skating and lives in a port town in Miyagi Prefecture. After losing her mother in the 2011 earthquake, she and her father are currently living in temporary housing. With sad memories of the earthquake and memories of a gentle mother, the cheerful Hina continues to move toward her dreams.

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.

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

Apparently, this one episode was created for the victims of the tohoku earthquake. More or less for the children that were affected. The characters of this story were also affected by some sort of earthquake as the characters live in makeshift housing and a non present family member.

This show does what it sets out to do. The main moral of the story to be "Keep on Going." The main character has her ups and downs with her closest friend going away and is in that awkward transition of young adulthood where no one knows what do to. In the end, the girl tries to read more
