Fans (and myself!) have been crying out in waiting for the full version of Ya Boy Kongming! TV anime’s opening theme song to hit digital platforms and finally our pledging has paid off. The official Twitter account for the adaptation of the manga series written by Yuto Yotsuba and illustrated by Ryo Ogawa announced that the full version of “Chikichiki Banban” will be released on May 20!





The news also confirms that the opening theme, sung by the music unit QUEENDOM, will be hitting YouTube’s Art Tracks on the same day, letting fans listen to the song over and over again for free. Chiki chiki, indeed!

Ya Boy Kongming! is directed by Osamu Honma and features animation produced at P.A. Works. The series is currently broadcasting in Japan and is available via streaming in English from HIDIVE, which describes the series as such:


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!
