      Chrysanthemum & Green & Sea - Japan in Insect Master

      All things live for desire.

      S01 Magic Pen Youth

      Japanese magic pen Ma Liang
      Grandma is true
      love , is it not the brushwork of ink painting?

      S02 Darkness

      Afraid of light, but also to see light. Otherwise, if you are in the dark, you will dissolve into the darkness, lose yourself, and lose the light.
      Keep the light in your heart.

      S03 Dreams

      irresistible fate

      After watching more than ten episodes, I found that it was basically a tragedy.
      But the characters in the play endure silently, never as provocative as in our TV series and movies, or say things that do extraordinary things at every turn.
      I remember reading Kawabata Yasunari's novels before, and it almost has this tone. Whether it's a dancer from Izu or a woman from the Snow Country, they all live their lives silently, never thinking about resisting or pursuing anything. It seems that...

      line of sky

      It's just the story in this picture, in the bug master, the story in the thread of the horizon.

      The maid of the young master's house "blows" and sees the line hanging from the sky, pulling it with her hands and disappearing into the air.

      After disappearing, he was found by Yingu and rescued.

      The thread on the other side was a spirit-sucking insect. After I rescued Chui, because of the remaining thread in my palm, Chui would occasionally become lighter and disappear...

      Japanese style

      Instead of adopting the setting of traditional Japanese monsters/yokai, a world containing "bugs" was created. Insects without wisdom but full of vitality, how can people who strive to live in a difficult world coexist? The whole film is permeated with a touch of sadness. Tragedy often happens, but no one should be blamed. It is not the fault of people, nor the fault of insects.
      Yingu's tenderness is that he respects every life and tries his best to maintain balance. We feel sorry for him...

      Either wandering around, or bursting into tears.

      I watched it off and on for a few days, and I like and < False cocoon fetch り> the most, one is about life and death and reincarnation, the other is about perseverance and belief.
          An animation that interprets the Japanese world view, like a stream that seems to be like a spring, full of Zen, flowing slowly, quiet and gentle. In such a humid and sultry summer night, watching the thin stories in the animation alone, as if caught in the dazzling flow of light,...

    Movie plot

    Another world, inhabited by a group of creatures that are completely different from common animals and plants. Since time immemorial, people have called them " worms " in awe. When the world of insects and the world of people overlap, the insect master Yingu will appear.
    These worms are obviously not small things that look like writhing and writhing, but a kind of creature that is closest to the origin of life and resembles a spiritual...
