Reminder: Ya Boy Kongming!

That exclamation point is part of the title of of the show, not me being really excited about this post…

Long story short: I accidentally hit “Publish” instead of “Schedule” for the recommendation I wanted to post today, so it ended up going live last night.

So, hey, I figured I’d just remind you of my most recent new recommendation.

That recommendation is Ya Boy Kongming! — again, that exclamation point is part of the title, not me being excited…

Incidentally, you can stream the anime here.

In brief:

[O]ur story begins in AD 234 on the Wuzhang Plains. Zhuge Liang dies of illness, his last wish to live in an age of peace. He is promptly reincarnated in present day Shibuya.

And given that it’s Halloween night, promptly mistaken for a dude in a costume. For his part, his reaction is to assume he’s wound up in Hell…

Hilarity ensues.

Shortly after arriving in the present, Zhuge Liang meets Eiko Tsukimi, an aspiring singer…

Conveniently, the owner of the nightclub where Zhuge Liang starts working happens to be a colossal Three Kingdoms nerd. Which is handy, because when Zhuge Liang says things like “Hey, remember when I borrowed a hundred thousand arrows at Red Cliffs?”, there’s somebody who can go “I do remember that!”

Also, since I’m reminding you —

— N-no. That’s not what I was going to say. Bad Chad Kroeger! Keep acting like that and, I swear, I will turn this blog around and there’ll be no Juno Awards for anyone!
