An isekai anime titled "Drug Store in Another World - The Slow Life of a Cheat Pharmacist" follows the life of a frustrated corporate worker, named Reiji, who is transported to a different world.

The anime based on the original work by Kennoji showcases Reiji working hard but one day while heading toward his office, he finds himself in a forest.

It turns out, Reiji has landed in some other world. He realizes he is reincarnated into this new world. Moreover, he possesses a unique quality of making medicines.

However, Reiji is upset because he did not acquire any combative abilities. Things get interesting when the medicines Reiji makes become popular in no time.

In "Drug Store in Another World - The Slow Life of a Cheat Pharmacist," Reiji decides to open a medicine shop and lead a slow and lazy life.

The anime seems to be an amalgamation of slice-of-life and isekai with a dash of wholesomeness.

"Reiji Kirio was a corporate wage slave, who did nothing but work all day, every day. On a typical day of walking to work with a hollow look on his face, he suddenly found himself in the forest of another world. 'Oh, this must be one of those isekai reincarnations people keep talking about.' The two skills he has are 'Appraise' and 'Drug Discovery,'" read the official series synopsis, according to Crunchyroll.

"Those don't sound too impressive... well, whatever. Except these turn out to be particularly overpowered skills! He's able to produce the healing medicines that were sorely lacking in the world, one after another, leading to an overnight fortune. No one will ever force him to work like a slave again! He decides to adopt a deliberately slow life and opens a drug store. And so, a story about following the slow life philosophy while running a drugstore in another world begins," the synopsis continued.

The cast of the anime includes Jun Fukushima as Reiji Kirio, Satsumi Matsuda as Elaine, Risae Matsuda as Noella, Fumiko Uchimura as Garou Ejiru, Akane Kumada as Mina and Mariko Higashiuchi as Annabel.

Fans can watch "Drug Store in Another World - The Slow Life of a Cheat Pharmacist" Episode 1 online on Crunchyroll this Wednesday. The episode will live stream in Japanese with English subtitles.
