In this ukiyoe-style manga, Isobe Isobee is a lazy, slacker samurai with big dreams. He lives with his mother, who thinks highly of him. He lays around the house, sneakily looks at Edo-period pornography without his mother noticing, naps at school... but he plans to become a respectable samurai one day!

Isobe Isobee Monogatari was originally a one-shot manga published in Shounen Jump in May (#26, 27) to fill in a slot vacated by the suspension of One Piece at that time; however, due to the tremendous amount of positive feedback it received, the manga got serialized.

From Shounen Jump 2015 #11 onwards, the series was placed at the end of the magazine and no longer participates in the ranking system.
