Plot of Isekai Yakkyoku
A young Japanese pharmacologist and researcher died of overwork and was reborn in a medieval parallel Europe. He was reincarnated as a 10-year-old apprentice of a famous royal court pharmacist and has acquired the ability to accurately analyze diseases, material creation, and material destruction.
In a society in which dubious medical practices are vacating, price rip-off through the monopoly of the Pharmacists’ Guild is part of everyday life and good medicine is not available to the common people, he was chosen by the emperor to open a pharmacy on the outskirts of the city.
He will put an end to the fraud that has taken over the world and provide the common people with a truly effective medicine developed with the help of today’s pharmacology. Thus, the young pharmacist cheats for the benefit of people from the parallel world by using his previous knowledge to create innovative drugs.
