Isekai Yakkyoku (translated as Parallel World Pharmacy) is based on a light novel written by Rizu Takayama and illustrated by keepout. The novel was originally published on the Shosetsuka ni Naro website but was picked up by Media Factory’s MF Bunko imprint in 2016.

The story follows a modern-day Japanese pharmacologist, who dies and gets reincarnated in another world. He is now Falma de Medici, a son of a famous family of court apothecarists. This new world doesn’t really appreciate science and is filled with witchcraft and weird concoctions meant to cure diseases. But, Falma has a secret weapon. When he died he gained an ability that allows him to see all matter. Armed with his cheat skill, he makes the most of his powers by opening an apothecary where he sells all kinds of medicine to help people of the kingdom cure their ailments.
