Importance of settings in production

Without the settings, the story will not progress at all. Even if there are two people and just calling the other person's name, it is necessary to set a "name", and it is also necessary to decide where the two people are.Furthermore, in order to decide the clothes of the two people there, it is necessary to set the era and the person.

In this way, of the elements of "when, where, with whom, who, why, what, and what happened", the setting is directly related to the minimum "when, where, who, who". The "why / what do" part will be influenced by the person's gender, personality, hobbies, and tastes.

Since it is an important item in determining the composition of the story, once it is set, it cannot be changed easily.

Also, some settings may or may not have been added later to make the story consistent, which is commonly referred to as(English edition)That.
