History[edit | edit source]
An ambitious group of cats calling themselves the Cat Hand Group set sail from their homeland in an attempt to make profit in a foreign land. It has been 26 days since their voyage and to their misfortune, they were caught in a storm. The ship's rudder, having been damaged in storm, lost its functionality. Feeling helpless, the Cat Hand Group was left with no choice but to wait for the tides to calm, only to crash into an unknown reef.
When the cats of the Cat Hand Group have regained their consciousness, they found themselves on an unfamiliar, peaceful island. Dazed by the recent events, the Cat Hand Group have quickly came to their senses upon sighting one of their ship, 'Nabeeho', on the middle of the island. Fortunately none of the cats were injured or missing, however, all of the ships with the exception of Nabeeho have been wrecked and majority of their loaded goods have been lost. Stuck on an unknown island with no way of returning to their homeland, the Cat Hand Group have settled on the island and named their new home 'Malangdo'.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The origin of the name Malangdo itself doesn't seem tied to any one language. The word malango in Tagalong means "to get drunk accidentally." The name Malang is a city in Indonesia.
- The concept of Malangdo may be based on Tashirojima, a small island in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan that has become known as "Cat Island" due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune.
