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 Apothecary, and he had attained an inhuman ability to see through disease, creating substances, and removing substance.

In a society in which dubious medical practices are rampant, price gouging thru the monopoly of the apothecaries guild, and good medicine aren’t available to the commoners.

He was recognized by the Emperess at that time and opened a Pharmacy at the corner of the town.

He will wipe out the fraud that has swept the world, and deliver to the commoners a truly effective medicine that was developed using present day pharmacology.

Thus the boy pharmacist will cheat by using his previous knowledge to create innovative medicines while helping the people of the parallel world, a story about living his new life to the fullest this time.

    i would like to translate this WN, but i don’t guarantee the quality though
    (it would be categorize as a whole new level of awesomeness if there’s proofreader or editor willing to help me)

  2. Crusoe says:

    sure, that would even be better!

  3. Romance Harem says:

    Is there romance, is there harem?

  4. James says:

    What’s weird is he doesn’t go through the ethical dilemmas of “if I keep my patients alive but still sick, I can make more money” that all big pharmaceuticals go through in the summary. Does he? Seems rather simple and naive if he doesn’t…

    • joeglens says:

      The prologue already stated his character, he genuinely wants to save lives

    • Truth says:

      Or you know, he might just be a genuine good guy?

    • Adam Jensen says:

      The guy can make gold from nothing. he doesn’t need any help on the cash front.

      • Anonymous says:

        i’d dissagree on the account that he doesn’t need help on the cash front due to backing from the empress and his father if need be. but creating gold from nothing. while ideally yes you can use that, but then you have to think about that ability from an economic standard. if you put too much gold into the system, then the value of the gold itself will decrease causing inflation and as a result, the action would be counter productive in regards to his goal of affordable medicine

  9. Namorax says:

    Looking at some of the titles, it appears like that world has magic, is that true or is this series completely without magic, only concentrating on medicine?

  10. kevin chris says:

  23. Shoua says:

    I really enjoy this novel. Please continue translating, I really really want to know what happens next.???

  24. Kandoral says:

    So seems like it got dropped?

  25. Prometheus says:

    A story where the character being reincarnated actually has a purpose, instead of just being used as an attention grabber.
    He is a pharmicist and actually uses his knowledge in a different world, (instead of the knowledge being useless and turning the series into a f**king cooking novel. Yeah. I’m sick and tired of Japanese webnovels turning into cooking novels. You guys know which one I’m talking about if you have read it.)
    Its great, exciting, and is actually educational, since it teaches you about diseases and medicine, which is a huge plus (I hope it continues this trend).

    Other World Knowledge Usefulness: Max.**

    *I can’t believe I have to put it here, but its a Japanese webnovel, and this problem is seriously a demerit in many series.
    **Other world knowledge refers to how useful a character’s previous world was, whether it was world traveler or reincarnation. It also judges the usefulness of this type of premise (besides the “being able to talk” and “act older” things, since that is inherent to the premise). Rankings are: Low, Mid, High, Max. With Max meaning that the entire premise is based on the MC’s old life.

  29. SkyAeon235 says:

    So, before I begin I must say that I only read the chapters. I just press next to get there. I read no comments or anything else like that. I was seriously wondering if this is being translated. Is the translator okay? I did however manage to find that it has been months since an update, and the translation began a year ago. So, I am guessing that it was dropped only around a month or so after translations began, I guess. I apologise if I am wrong, but that is all in inferred from the information I happened to see. I didn’t investigate much though, I admit. I was wondering if someone would translate on the previous translators behalf if he dropped it or can no longer translate it, for whatever reason. Thank you, and I’m sorry translator if you just can’t get to it if these aren’t the case.

    I could try to help as editor if needed.

  31. Holy says:

    Dear translator. This work are truly amazing! I never read such majestic work like this.

    I am a Light Novel lover especially Chinese novel. but most of them were about martial art with magic. i got bored when read the novel as mostly they got similarity although the title were different.

    However, this novel different from the other as the MC employ scientific knowledge to form a miracles in an ancient time. I just love when a novel blend modern and traditional technologies/knowledge.

    I hope that you have high spirit to translate this. This novel should be your number one priority in translating.

  32. Dark says:

    can’t wait for the next chapter.

    thanks for doing this.

  33. Tiffany Vu says:
