ya boy kongming!

Last month saw the announcement of a compilation film for the Ya Boy Kongming! anime, based on the manga by Yuto Yotsuba and Ryo Ogawa. Ya Boy Kongming! Road to Summer Sonia is set to premiere in Japanese cinemas on March 1, 2024, and the first trailer is here to offer up a preview.

There’s also a new visual:

HIDIVE streamed the Ya Boy Kongming! anime as it aired and Kodansha USA publishes the manga digitally, with the former describing it like so:

In the year 234, a dying Zhuge Kongming’s thoughts wander over his life as one of China’s greatest military strategists and statesmen, wondering what might have been had he been born in less turbulent times. Inexplicably, Kongming finds himself in a younger body in a very strange land! But why has a master of feudal diplomacy and the art of war been brought to modern Japan? He seems overqualified for flipping burgers, but then destiny calls in the entrancing voice of aspiring singer Eiko Tsukimi. Learning of her troubles in becoming a professional, Kongming’s quest is secured: applying his formidable craft, intellect, and bag of ancient Chinese secrets to the task of making Eiko a star! Pity now the executives of the Japanese music industry, for they are but mere men, and they face the promotional assault of a legend reborn: YA BOY KONGMING!
