The Apothecary Diaries Reveals Tanabata Visual and Voice Drama

The Apothecary Diaries anime revealed a mini voice-drama along with a Tanabata (star viewing festival). The anime is currently on a break as fans await the second season, slated to air in 2025. While the Tanabata date varies based on the region, the festivities generally begin on July 7.

The visual and mini-voice drama feature Jinshi and Maomao, voiced by Takeo Otsuka and Aoi Yuki respectively. The pair’s dynamic is a central point in the story.

OLM and Toho Animation Studio animated the first season of the TV anime, based on a light novel series written by Natsu Hyuga and illustrated by Toko Shino. Norihiro Naganuma directed the anime and also did the series composition. Yukiko Nakatani is in charge of the character designs.

It’s worth noting that the series also has two manga adaptations, one by Nekokurage and one by Minoji Kurata. Crunchyroll describes the plot:

Maomao lived a peaceful life with her apothecary father. Until one day, she’s sold as a lowly servant to the emperor’s palace. But she wasn’t meant for a compliant life among royalty. So when imperial heirs fall ill, she decides to step in and find a cure! This catches the eye of Jinshi, a handsome palace official who promotes her. Now, she’s making a name for herself solving medical mysteries!

Tanabata visual and voice drama for The Apothecary Diaries were also shown at the Crunchyroll Industry Panel during today’s Anime Expo, along with an English-subtitled trailer for the second season.
