A young pharmacologist and researcher in Japan died from overworking, and was reincarnated in a Medieval Parallel Europe. He was reincarnated as a 10-year-old apprentice to a famous Royal Court pharmacist, had attained an inhuman skills of ability to see through disease, material creation, and material destruction. He will deliver the commoners a truly effective medicine that was developed using present day pharmacology.
A pharmacist dies from overwork and his consciousness takes over the body of Falma de Medicis in another world. He learns that this world's medical knowledge is far behind that of earth and is often supplemented with superstition. The doctors and pharmacists who treat the nobles are able to use divine arts and achieve decent results, but the pharmacists availabe to the commoners must rely upon folk remedies and ineffective concoctions passed down through tradition. His primary goal is to set up a pharmacy which would provide high class and affordable service to nobles and commoners alike, based on his knowledge from his past life. Using his father's connections in the medical world, Falma is able to work toward his goal. Along the way, he comes to grip with his pseudo-human nature...I mean, he doesn't have a shadow, so he's clearly not just a normal human. Many chapters involve a single issue which Falma will focus on and deal with (such as cosmetics or mental illness), while roughly fitting into larger arcs. I hesitate to call them "arcs" though since each one is usually only a couple chapters long. Broadly speaking, the arcs are: He gets acquainted with the new world, proves his worth to the empress, struggles to get his pharmacy off the ground, deals with groups which would look to harm him (the Holy Inquisition and the Pharmacist Association), keeps his identity secret from his brother, and fights against a large-scale plague. It's a pretty enjoyable manga. And it's pretty nice seeing him trying to stimulate the growth of other scientists and doctors rather than simply being another authority they can rely upon. Often doing this by submitting his inventions and stuff anonymously to the patent office rather than taking credit (Did he introduce the concept of the patent office to this world?). Though overall, it still reads as a power fantasy where he dominates the pharmacist world and has the respect of world leaders and the townspeople around him. [Reviewed at chapter 24]
