Manga Sister is a modern day fairy tale about a man stuck in a care home. It's the worst care home in the world. each day Gerald is deposited in a wheelchair in front of the television.

The highlight of his day is watching a cartoon, Manga Brother, at midnight...Taisho, a small girl, is repeatedly attacked by her elder brother, Taiko. The cartoon always ends the same way, Taisho is killed only to be reborn at the beginning of the next episode. She is alone. It is her role. But Taisho sees out from the television, she sees the pain of people watching her. One day Gerald wishes it would all change. Taisho wishes. and something extraordinary happens...
