The anime adaptation of “Alternate World Pharmacy” has been decided.
I would like thank all the readers from the bottom of my heart.
I would also like to give my gratitude to keepout-sensei, Kouya Hijiri-sensei, the affiliated personnel from the publication and manga editorial department.
I am also quite grateful to the various specialist and medical personnel, who I had received guidance since the web novel publication as this work is using existing medicines and diseases as the theme.
In reality, we are facing drastic changes in our lifestyle due to the spread of novel coronavirus, but I would do my best with the anime staff in the anime production, so that this work can be a relaxing time for everyone. Please do look forward to it.
