Fans of the manga will be happy to hear that an Another World Pharmacy anime is in the works. The series, also known by its original Japanese name Isekai Yakkyoku, will premiere in July 2022 this summer.
They have since announced and cast the staff for the series. They also revealed the OP and ED numbers, as well as the key visuals and the first promotional video.
What is the story of Another World Pharmacy about?
If you are not familiar with Another World Pharmacy, you may be wondering what it is all about. The series will be based on Liz Takayama’s popular Media Factory (Kadokawa) manga of the same title.
According to a translation from the official website, the series follows the story of Kanji Yakutani, a renowned pharmacologist. After working his way 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 adapt to a new world where things like magic exist, while he works as an apprentice to a Royal Court pharmacist. Only Falma has an advantage not only from his past life, but also from his present one. He is possessed with the divine ability to see disease in the bodies of others.
Seeing the corrupt state of medicine and medical practices in the new world he lives in, Falma decides to use his knowledge and gifts to improve healthcare for everyone by opening his own pharmacy.
While they may sound similar, this should not be confused with another isekai medical series, Drugstore in Another World, which premiered in 2021.
What are the numbers of Another World Pharmacy OP and ED?

The OP theme is Fantasy Chronicle by Kaori Ishihara.
