The story follows Reiji Kirio, a corporate drone who wakes up in another world (Isekai). Then, he gets disappointed at not having the skill set or the (over) power of an Isekai hero. However, he has a huge boost in medicinal ability aka “drug discovery” skills. He starts a drugstore that eventually expands as a chain all over the magical land.
Although initially disappointed, Reiji lives a relaxing and calm life later on. It follows a pretty much slice-of-life flow, with several cute and light-hearted episodes. Unlike the usual action-drama in the typical Isekai series, the anime is relaxing and enjoyable for its relatively slow pace.
