If you want an isekai with lighter tones than the others, this is perfect for you! The anime has a bit of a slife-of-life feel to it. In every episode, there’s a casual topic in question, then the protagonist will address that certain subject using his handmade potions. The MC’s cheat skill that he acquired before coming to the new world is that he can create potions of any kind. He can also see the details of the plants from their molecular composition to their full structure. Despite being a casual anime, the protagonist also has a harem that consists of cute girls.
Corporate drone Reiji is transported to a fantasy world, where he discovers that he can craft potions at a higher level than his rank should allow. Taking advantage of this, Reiji makes a tidy profit–enough to open his own drugstore. An elf who can’t aim his bow? Give him some eye drops! A dragon who accidentally breathes fire? Cough syrup! Reiji’s new relaxing life of making medicine for fantasy creatures is about to begin! (via Seven Seas Entertainment)
