This reminds me that there’s a current Isekai about the MC running a drug store. Huh.

I honestly really liked the manga for this one, I’m glad that it’s getting an anime

I actually like this one quite a bit. Sure it has a lot of standard isekai tropes but it makes use of actual modern day medicine in a medieval setting rather than having the MC make stuff up on the fly. It can also be both dark and wholesome at times too

I know which one you’re talking about and the previous (manga version) led me to this one while I was waiting for a new chapter to drop, but they are as different as night and day.

It’s not a ‘perfect’ series as it does have many of the cliched isekai tropes such as broken skills, quickly moving up the ranks etc. but what makes it interesting is the slow and methodical process of introducing modern advances in medicine to basically the middle ages, and an era where magic is real.

The MC can easily replicate modern medicines causespoiler[ he can create anything he knows the chemical compounds of] but that only helps on a small scale, he can’t mass produce this cure to an entire country if say a pandemic of a highly infectious disease were to occur.

I was quite bummed that ‘Drugstore in Another World: The Slow Life of a Cheat Pharmacist’ got an adaptation and not this but here’s to hoping that people won’t lump these two together and think that it’s just gonna be the same story.

Updated the spreadsheet! I notice the webnovel’s start date is May 29, but the first chapters weren’t posted until July 1; it doesn’t show up in the weekly rankings before then either. Was the start taken down and reworked or something?

spoiler[It’s been done.]

Sorry. I had to say. Isekais are now to point they are beyond lazy.

Same here because if that happened it could be a crime. About any alternate version would be better than Cheat Pharma and this one looks like it might be…

Starting to feel like authors, and studios, are getting really desperate with ideas for isekai titles. Guess I’ll wait for the inevitable title where the MC is a fast food worker and then gets transported and runs a magical B&B of sorts, or the salaryman who gets transported and takes over kingdoms with shrewd financial planning and economics.

We have something similar that’s already airing. How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom. Only difference is that he’s still a student instead of a salaryman.
