Novel's first volume synopsis:
Reiji, who was tired of living life as a corporate slave, suddenly realizes that he's been reincarnated into another world. He acquires the skill of creating medicine, which disappoints him because it is not a combat skill. However, the potions he makes with the skill quickly became popular, and he decided to open a drugstore with the money he earned. He enjoys a slow life, using his medicine creating skill to fulfill the requests of the rare customers who come to his store. This is a heartwarming fantasy about an ordinary young man who used to be a company employee but now lives in a country town in another world.
