What is the story of Another World Pharmacy about?
If you’re not familiar with Another World Pharmacy, you might be wondering what it’s all about. The series is based on Liz Takayama’s popular manga “Media Factory” (Kadokawa) of the same title.
According to a translation of 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.
Trapped in a new body, he must adjust to a new world where things like magic exist while working as an apprentice to a royal court apothecary. Only Falma has an advantage, not only from his past life, but also from his current one. He is possessed by the divine ability to see illnesses in the bodies of others.
Seeing the corrupt state of medicine and medical practices in the new world he inhabits, Falma decides to use his knowledge and gifts to improve healthcare for all by opening his own pharmacy.
