Adaptation based on fantasy light novel series hits Japanese TV in July of 2022
A dramatic new preview video has been published for Isekai Yakkyoku ("Another World Pharmacy"), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of fantasy light novels written by Liz Takayama and illustrated by keepout about a young researcher who decides to bring modern medical techniques to the masses after he is reincarnated into a magical fantasy world.
The preview video (below) highlights both the opening theme song, entitled "Musou-teki Chronicle" ("Dream-like Chronicle"), which is performed by Kaori Ishihara, and the ending theme, entitled "Hakuu" ("Rain Shower"), which is performed by Little Black Dress.
The story of Isekai Yakkyoku follows Kanji Yakutani, a medical researcher who dies from overwork and reincarnates in another world as Falma de Médicis, the son of a famous court physician. Falma despairs at the state of medical care in the new world, where the use of various spells and charms that can't be called true medical treatment is widespread and only the nobility can afford magical medical care. With the help of his knowledge of modern medicine and his "cheat" ability to create and destroy matter, Falma decides to open a pharmacy and bring proper medicine to everyone who needs it.
The original Isekai Yakkyoku novels are published in Japan by Media Factory (a division of KADOKAWA) under their MF Books imprint. The Isekai Yakkyoku TV anime is directed by Keizō Kusakawa and features animation production by Diomedéa. The series is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Japan in July of 2022.
