What Is Ya Boy Kongming About?
The first anime to be released in spring 2022 is Ya Boy Kongming. It began as an underappreciated anime and turned into one of the season's top shows.
Despite its ludicrous premise, the anime community was blown away by the show. Ya Boy Kongming has been regarded as one of the top 10 shows of the season, attracting both loyal viewers and newcomers since its premiere.
The anime follows Zhu Ge Liang, better known as Kongming, the late general of the Three Kingdoms.
Prior to his death, he yearned for a new existence free of conflict. The Gods heard his plea and resurrected him in modern-day Shibuya, Japan!
Kongming arrives on the evening of Halloween in Shibuya. He believes he landed in hell because of the events that led to his reincarnation.
As usual, Kongming sports his Taoist robe and his crane feather fan, true to his Chinese reference.
In Shibuya, Kongming encounters Eiko Tsukimi, whom he dubbed the Songstress of Hell. He gets attracted to Eiko's singing voice, which surprisingly drives him to tears.
Every time Eiko sings for him, Kongming reminisces about his previous life and comrades.
Kongming volunteers to be Eiko's manager and strategist. While Eiko aspires to perform at the world's largest EDM event, Kongming promises to support her.
Eiko's great career is now in sight, thanks to Kongming's wide understanding of battle methods and cerebral techniques comparable to Sun Tzu's Art of War!
Part of the success of Ya Boy Kongming is the anime’s banger opening. Even the famous YouTuber Gigguk has posted the opening of the anime on Twitter.
He also dubbed it as the best anime opening of the spring season in rivalry with Spy x Family and Skeleton Knight in Another World.
