I’m kinda torn honestly. I genuinely love the LN and manga (so far) and was really excited to see the show get an adaptation, if for no other reason then the creators genuine excitement and happiness. That said, they essentially skipped a majority of the first volume of the manga (and a chunk of the LN) and the pacing feels rushed, like they expect the only people watching already knew the source material, therefore screw setup or exposition or development. Still, it’s bright, colorful and relaxing and unless it royally screws the pooch, I’m gonna stick with it.

Director/animator is trying too hard to make noera look cute. The fact is she is already the embodiment of moe. The extra effort that has been put is simply unappealing. What I am saying is whatever noera would have done w/o UwU face would also have been cute and so there was no need for it.

Was reading the LN alongside, and chapter 10 contained blatantly homophobic messaging, so I dropped it. Episode 2 is where that would have been, and skimming through the episode it looks like the anime creators wisely skipped over that chapter; good job anime crew! The anime still has to be a drop for me, because it's tainted by my distaste for the LN, but I'm glad that anime-onlies won't have to see that. It's too bad really, this was a cute anime.

Zeral's girlfriend is a regular? I hope she relapses in a yandere state in future episodes.

All I know is that it had more moments of Noella, and any time she's on screen makes my brain happy.

It’s a shame to hear they’re rushing the pacing compared to the manga and LN, but honestly it hasn’t hurt it for me, this was still a fun episode like the last one. I like the Red Cat Brigade, I love a group of goofballs with a somewhat serious side to them, and Annabelle is cute lol. I’m really liking how the answers to the problems in this show is to create a new drug/potion/chemical, that’s a pretty unique aspect. Noela is cute af as always, every time she says “woof” I die of cuteness a little on the inside. Looking forward to the next one!

Annabelle is cute. She definitely made this episode a lot better and I'm hoping she appears lots in the future
I love One Piece and Gintama

Reiji, the god of medicines! It's fun seeing Reiji getting worshipped by the Red Cat Brigades as the medicine god. I don't know if Reiji's medicine are still considered as "medicines" now, the addictive drive it gives sounds like a drug.

The pacing in this episode was rather odd, situations concluded faster than expected. It's sad that they seems to have ignored the entire reincarnation part even in Episode 2.

Ah, right, a tsundere mercenary captain girl addicted to Reiji's drug. Thats good. More girl welcomed to the mc gang. God medicine, eh? Thats two really know how to make some joke. Detergent fuwa-fuwa liquid, and then beast repellent stinky-spray, and the last one he made the bandit repellent pepper-spray liquor. Obviously its applied in a very well done way. Good job with the slow life you present to me. He even made their own herbs plantation, thanks to the previous son duke offer, which is a nice progression over their 'slow' lifes. Noel as cute as ever. But Mina always get such a little attention. Hopefully the next ojou-sama customer will bring more chill up the table, and those bratty demon lord shall give a good challenge to Reiji. Lets see....

This episode was a bit better.

I don't know if being addicted to potions is a good thing xD. Also, he's going to call everything he "creates" medicine? lol

With that end card it looks like they nerfed Annabelle in the anime.

Just read chapter 10 because of your comment, and as a gay person I can tell you you're an absolute wuss.

What are you on about? That's the perfect time for children to relax and enjoy an episode of anime before going to bed after all the cram schools, doing all the homework. eating dinner, etc.

I decided to peek into the manga to see what these two episodes looked like there. At a glance the anime seems much less serious, violent and lewd among many other changes. It's almost a whole different thing.
I don't mind, I kinda like how cute and wholesome this is.

You're describing teenagers, not children.

Well...this show wasted no time at smearing its original source material's pacing, or the manga adaptation of the LN for that matter.

Noela will always be a favourite to the kids for her scrubby wolf tail, and Mina will be because she's a good assistant at everything else.

Reiji's potion-making has spread like wildfire on the Kalta land, even the Red Cat Brigade mercenary of guard captain Annabelle and her subordinates Doz and Moz wants in on the apothecary's stuff since it's so good. A detergent "medicine" solution even for that is as simple has putting the case closed and resolved on that. So now what, Reiji's referred to as a medicine god lols.

It's back to Zeral and Feris on borrowing some of their fields to plant herbs, and help solve their plow of land with animal repellent to keep animals away from their crop. The Utsubo flower still works on monsters and beasts like Noela, now in a capsule for easy spraying as medicine.

Another case of the Red Cat Brigade mercenary on thieves lurking around the town, and that's the reason why there's more purchase of potions to treat the innocent. So for that, the solution is to mix hot capsaicin peppers and liquor to make a medicine that burns the eyes, and it's an effort to use these vials to keep these thieves away easily.

Oh welp, a demon king incoming?


As someone that hasn't read the source material I like it as a slice of life fun chill anime. But I get why people that are fans of the original source would not like this but I am enjoying it for what it is and if this gets people to read the source isn't that a win??

The anime has the potential to be a wholesome SOL anime. But, unfortunately, the storytelling with its art style doesn't fit my taste at all.

I preferred this episode to the first one (which I didn't dislike in and of itself; this one just had a more relaxing and smoother flow to me and the humor a little more well-integrated and less forced).

But one thing I don't understand is what the obsession and fascination is with isekai as a storytelling convention. Why can't the pharmacist in this case just be a native denizen of any fictional kingdom or realm which isn't on Earth and make it a regular high fantasy? Or do they believe they require that hook of relatability for the audience by having a classical isekai protagonist? I just don't see what the whole isekai theme really contributes to this when it just feels like a little trapping or afterthought shoehorned in.

It reminds me of how some Western movies that are mostly G-rated deliberately contain a few swearwords to bump the rating to the more prestigious PG.
Likewise adding isekai elements to fantasy with a fish-out-of-water character lets you advertise it as isekai series. And you have a better shot at finding an audience if you use appealing popular labels.
I bet there are many stories that were superficially repainted as rom-com or harem just to make them more marketable. Once the viewers are hooked, they might enjoy those on their own merit.
