Outline

CG animation inspired by MIYAZAWA Kenji’s story of the same title (1934). When a young girl named TAKADA transfers from another school, her classmates think she’s a wind sprite, and she finds it hard to make friends. Classmate Koichi likes her but is too self-conscious to talk to her. Tranquil colors enhance the work’s expression of children’s ephemeral emotions: their fears, flexibility, and fledgling feelings of romance.
