Fans of the manga will be pleased to hear there is an Another World Pharmacy anime in the works. The series, also known by its original Japanese name Isekai Yakkyoku, is set to premiere this summer in July 2022.
Since then, they have announced the staff and cast for the series. They have also revealed the OP and ED songs, as well as released key visuals and the first promotional video.
What is Another World Pharmacy’s story about?
If you’re unfamiliar with Another World Pharmacy, you may be wondering what it is about. The series will be based on Liz Takayama’s popular Media Factory (Kadokawa) manga of the same title.
According to a translation from the official website, the series will follow the story of Kanji Yakutani, a renowned pharmacologist. After working himself to death, he wakes up to find that he has been reincarnated as Falma, the ten-year-old son of the well-known De Medicis family.
Stuck in a new body, he must adjust to a new world where things like magic exist, as he works as an apprentice to a Royal Court pharmacist. Only Falma has an advantage, not only from his past life, but his current one as well. He is possessed with the divine ability to see diseases in the bodies of others.
As he sees the corrupt state of medicine and medical practices in the new world he lives in, Falma decides to use his knowledge and gifts to improve healthcare for all by opening a pharmacy of his own.
While they may sound similar, this is not to be confused with another medical isekai series, Drugstore in Another World, which premiered in 2021.
