Shoot for the stars! I’m going to be the country’s number-one alchemist! When young girl Sarasa graduated from the Royal Alchemist Academy, her teacher gifted her with a house for her to set up shop. Aiming to become a master-class alchemist, she gathers materials herself, experiments and operate a business… In her very own atelier, Sarasa indulges in a slow and relaxed alchemist life!
The story follows young orphan girl Sarasa as she becomes certificated alchemist and opens her first shop in a remote village. I really liked the first episode, but most of the following episodes were rather too dull for my taste. I found out that I enjoy more stories from Sarasa’s past and her interactions with her teacher and mentor Ophelia. Those were the better parts of the show. The rest is mostly about somewhat comical outlandish ingredients gathering or making various products with alchemy and other predictable tropes. It has cute, comical slice of life feel to it. Audio-visually the series is ok with very slice-of-life uplifting OP theme. If the content were as enjoyable as the first episode, I would give it 7 or 6, but the series was quite boring. Towards the end I just mostly skimmed through episodes, because I didn’t want to watch it at normal speed. Unless you want slice-of-nothing with cute girls doing alchemy shop, I do not recommend this series.
***No Spoilers***Cute, funny and relaxing, but at the same time its really standard and plain. It doesn't stand out from anything of the same genre and it will get lost in the mix, at best its average when its all said and done. However those cute and funny moments are worth the watch. Especially if you are just looking for a throwaway show, yet still want it to be enjoyable and relaxing.I will also say that the animator for the last fight really had a fun time with it. I was surprised at the quality for this level and type of show. That alone was worth the watch for me.6/10
NOTE: I only made it to episode 7. At first it was interesting, but the show puts so much emphasis on unimportant things that it really bogs down the story progression. Then I realized that there isn't much progression because there isn't much story. It's slice of life, VERY slice of life and almost nothing else. It would be nicer if there was humor, but it's weak at best. The characters are cute, and that's all this show has to offer. I can only recommend this to people without expectations. It wasn't for me, but that doesn't mean you won't like it.
