World-class medical researcher Kanji Yakutani lost his little sister to a tumor years ago due to ineffective treatment. To honor her legacy, he has dedicated his research to developing new medications for such conditions. But as fate would have it, he overworks himself and passes away at the age of 31, only to be given a second chance at life in another world.

When he wakes up, Kanji finds himself in the body of a 10-year-old boy named Falma de Médicis, the son of an esteemed family of medical practitioners in the Sain Fleuve Empire. Bearing the mark of a deity's divine blessing, Falma is capable of performing a unique divine art, allowing him to create and reduce any substance with the knowledge of its chemical properties.

After reading through some pharmacology books, Falma realizes that this world is operating on similar medical practices as in ancient times. He also learns that medicine is an exclusive privilege to the nobility, depriving commoners of proper medical care. Using the knowledge from his past life and the divine abilities granted to him, Falma resolves to make medicine available to those who need it—irrespective of class.

TLDR at the end

I've had enough. I really have had enough.

I hate Isekai that try to be interesting but end up being an embarrassment.

I hate main characters that is the same old "Nice and caring" personality.

I hate Isekai that always make the main character reincarnate in a noble family with riches.

AniManga fans: "I'm sick and tired of seeing the same Isekai tropes over and over again. It's time for a new property to stand out."
Liz Takayama: "I hear you back there, so why not give my only work a try? Hope it might surprise and please you."

In all essence of the novelty, novelist Liz Takayama with her only work that is Isekai Yakkyoku a.k.a Parallel World Pharmacy has been a delight to read in both the LN and manga, now translated into Diomedéa's anime adaptation that has come this season. For better or worse, this Isekai really stands out in its own clever way, even ...

I’ve been waiting for a seasonal to scratch that Honzuki/bookworm itch and Isekai Yakkyou was that seasonal. If you like the concept of isekai, but don’t like how it focuses on the same tropes every time, you’ll enjoy this quite a bit.

Getting isekai’d creates many opportunities for protagonists. Obviously, it’s an opportunity to start anew and fix the mistakes you made in your past life, but it also is an opportunity to bring knowledge from your world to a new one. Usually we see that in the form of video game mechanics or MCs making comments about anime/manga from back in Japan, but we don’t ...
