The film is set to premiere in Japan on March 1.

Kodansha USA Publishing started releasing the manga in digital English format in June 2021. The company describes the manga:

Kongming, the renowned General of the Three Kingdoms, has endured endless conflicts and has thus matured into the skilled tactician that he has become. As he laid on his deathbed, he desired nothing more than to be reincarnated into a serene world, but was instead rebirthed into Tokyo, the modern-day hub of party and chaos! Can a strategist as savvy as Kongming find his way amid the rowdy beats and even rowdier party-goers?!

The manga initially appeared in Japanese on Kodansha’s Comic Days website in December 2019, and was later featured in the Weekly Young Magazine published by Kodansha in November 2021.

In April 2022, the manga found its way to the small screen, which was exclusively and concurrently streamed on HIDIVE. HIDIVE also aired an English dubbed version. Sentai Filmworks secured the rights to the anime and launched it on home video in April 2023.

A live-action series based on the manga aired from September 27 up to November 29. A theatrical adaptation is also forthcoming, with performances scheduled to take place in Tokyo from May 3-6, and in Osaka on May 10 and 11.
