Five unpopular cartoonists live in an isolated island, called Manga-jima, somewhere in Japan on the Pacific Ocean. Nagasawa and Moriyoshi was forced to leave their apartment because they couldn’t pay the rent, and arrived at the island a few years ago. They use all papers, ink, and food which they brought from Tokyo. They suffer from hunger, fight against the temptation of cannibalism and get into a panic. All they have is the passion and craziness for cartoons. "At the place nobody knows, we're doing the things nobody understands." They finish their new cartoon at last, called a ship with flare from an island nearby, and depart for Tokyo to sell their cartoon. Is there a bright future waiting for the five middle-aged cartoonists, who decided to devote their lives for drawing cartoons?
