On Thursday, a newly opened website and twitter account announced that Isekai Yakkyoku (Alternate World Pharmacy) light novel’s television anime has been green-lit.
To celebrate the announcement, novel illustrator keepout and manga artist Sei Takano drew the following illustrations.
According to the website-
A young pharmacologist dies from overwork because he was so absorbed in his research. However, he is reincarnated as Pharma, the son of a well-known court pharmacist in a different world. In this world where wrong treatments and drug formulations are rampant, he confronts all illnesses in an attempt to save people with the modern pharmacy he has cultivated in his previous life and the cheat abilities he has acquired in the new world.
Liz Takayama published Isekai Yakkyoku (Alternate World Pharmacy) as an amateur online novel on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō. Kadokawa eventually bought the novel and began publishing it under the MF Books imprint. There are seven volumes of the light novel series in print and the eighth volume will be released on July 21. Sei Takano adapted the light novel series into manga which is running in Kadokawa’s Comic Flapper magazine.

We would like to thank keepout, Koya Hijiri, the editorial department, and all the publishers for their support.
