Hammerboy (망치, Mangchi) is a Korean animated film. It premiered at the Big Apple Anime Fest on August 30, 2003, and went into wide release in South Korea on August 6, 2004. It was released in North America on DVD by Central Park Media in 2007, with the original Korean track, and an English Dub.


The story is about a boy called Mangchi. He is small, but he possesses a magical hammer that helps him get around all his problems. He therefore got the nickname of "Hammerboy". Mangchi lives on a small distant island called Candlestick because everywhere else has turned into a wasteland because of some big catastrophe. When Princess Poplar from the kingdom of Jemius is being pursued by henchmen of the conspirator Moonk, Hammerboy sides with her, ready to unleash all his latent powers in order to save humankind.
