About Ya Boy Kongming!:
Ya Boy Kongming! (also known as Paripi Koumei) is a manga series illustrated by Ryō Ogawa and written by Yuto Yotsuba. The manga was serialized from December 2019 to November 2021 on Kodansha’s Comic Days website, and subsequently in Weekly Young Magazine.

From April to June 2022, Season 1 of the anime produced by P.A. Works was broadcast on television, after having been transmitted from March to June of the same year.
The premiere of a live-action television drama occurred in September 2023 on the Shinsui 10 Drama programming block of Fuji TV.
Streaming platform HIDIVE describes the overall plot of Ya Boy Kongming! as follows:
Fate and reincarnation deliver brilliant military strategist, Kongming, from warring, ancient China to Japan’s modern party hot spot in Shibuya City, Tokyo. After a lifetime of battles and military skirmishes, Kongming wished with his last breath to be reborn in a world of peace and prosperity.
It’s nearly two millennia later and he’s finding his way in a very different world than that of his past life. When he meets Eiko, an amateur musician with big dreams, the unlikely duo strikes up an even unlikelier friendship. Eiko has street smarts to help Kongming navigate this strange new world, and Kongming will use his strategic mind to help Eiko achieve stardom! The story is a clever take (and smart twist) on fish-out-of-water and person-out-of-time themes with out-of-this-world results for Ya Boy Kongming!
