On an island, legend has it that monsters have lived there since ancient times. Because of this, the residents have named the island “Monster Island.” In actuality, the monsters living on the island are friendly, but live in fear of humans. A child named Kotake wanders onto the island. A grumpy red ogre named Naki ends up taking care of the child. What strange things might this encounter cause?

Allow me to inform you of a seemingly overlooked gem in the anime community. Time and time again I have watched children movies from Japan, and time and time again they astound me with how well-done they are. While some are talked about (Magic Tree House, One Stormy Night) and others are rarely brought to the West (Oblivion Island) this is the first one I have watched where I couldn't find anyone talking about it. Barely any information on MAL and not a single comment to be seen on tumblr or other similar sites. I find this sad.
