This is an original animation based on chapter 46 of Luo Guanzhong's The Three Kingdoms, a classic chinese novel forming the basis of franchises like Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdoms. It's not a comedy, nor is it some bloody showdown - its a battle of wits featuring one of the greatest military minds of all time.
Zhou Yu, director general for the Southland forces under Sun Quan, is jealous of Zhuge ("zhu-guh") Liang, director general of Liu Bei's forces (united with Sun Quan at this time, to oppose Cao Cao's invasion force from the north). So Zhou Yu conceives of a scheme to eliminate Zhuge Liang - he asks for 100,000 arrows for the army, and he wants them in ten days. Failure, he emphasizes, will be met with death, according to military law. Zhuge says he'll do it in three days. Thus our story begins.
This is the updated, premier version of the short cut.
