The story brings the most famous strategist from ancient China to the world of EDMs, clubs, smartphones, and more.
The protagonists, Liang Zhuge or Kongming and Eiko Tsukumi, are from two different eras yet find solace in each other’s presence. Both of them are full of ambition and talent that brings out the best in the other.
For instance, Kongming can help Eiko reach more audiences while the latter’s melodious singing helps calm the former’s heart.
The manga is popular for many reasons, like Yuto Yotsuba’s refreshing storyline and depth in the characters and artist Ryo Ogawa’s mesmerizing visuals. The series comes with some good news as it’s now finally getting an anime.
Comedy manga Ya Boy Kongming! has announced its much-anticipated anime adaptation for April 2022. The franchise has released a PV and a visual for the same, and further details will be revealed soon.
The PV features Eiko and Kongming when they first met and how the young singer brought the ancient war strategist home after he passed out.
Kongming was captivated by Eiko’s singing while she only thought of herself as an amateur.
As they both share their feelings and aspirations, Kongming pledges to make Eiko’s dreams come true so that she doesn’t give up. At that moment, the usually shy and reserved Eiko got a wave of courage and decided to continue.
The key visual portrays Kongming and Eiko in the modern-day Japanese street as he reaches out his hand to Eiko, indicating that he will help and support her.
