Idea and storyline of the film
The idea of creating this anime was born to Naoki Matsuura during his studies at the Musashino University of Arts. The master of scissors Sasuke and the truth exists in our world, and it was the meeting with him that pushed the author of the “Small Succession” to interesting reflections on the significance of the things that we produce. “All things, in the end, will break” so this idea is described on the official website.
Naoki Matsuura talks about the “one-off” of our daily routine, everything that breaks down can easily be replaced and it’s reasonable, each of us takes advantage of this. But after all, our involvement in the surrounding objects has a strong influence on our worldview … And the cheapest products, attachments and responsibilities for which we do not feel – can not it educate our tougher attitude towards people?
So in touch with the skillful work of the master, the author felt that it was not just scissors made by one master, but it was the embodiment of one “thought” that many artisans came to through many generations. Then, in the head of Naoki, the question arose: “Does my work cause me to feel when I touched scissors, at people?”. After a meeting with Sasuke after 5 years, the author was determined to make this animated film, revealing the deep themes of self-knowledge through environmental objects.
