Two new cast members have been revealed for Isekai Yakkyoku (“Another World Pharmacy”), an upcoming TV anime based on the series of isekai fantasy light novels written by Liz Takayama and illustrated by keepout about a young man who reincarnates in a world where magic is the primary source of medical care. The new cast members include:
Reina Ueda as Eléonore Bonnefoi.
And Kaede Hondo as Charlotte Soller.
The story of Isekai Yakkyoku follows Kanji Yakutani, a medical researcher who dies from overwork and reincarnates in another world as Falma de Médicis, the son of a famous court physician. Falma despairs at the state of medical care in the new world, where the use of various spells and charms that can’t be called true medical treatment is widespread and only the nobility can afford magical medical care. With the help of his knowledge of modern medicine and his “cheat” ability to create and destroy matter, Falma decides to open a pharmacy and bring proper medicine to everyone who needs it.
Isekai Yakkyoku is directed by Keizō Kusakawa and features animation production by Diomedéa. The series is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Japan in 2022.
