    Episode 1

    Cure for the common crazy girlfriend.

    This show is an isekai, but it's not obvious at all that it's supposed to be with this episode as typically the MC's former life is explained before being isekaied to another world, which does not happen here. Instead, it's a typical day in the life of Reiji, who owns and operates a drugstore in a fantasy world, one that's quite different from any CVS. So it begins with a typical customer in Zeral, who is asking Reiji to heal his girlfriend's insanity as Feris just loses her mind at the first sight of her seeing him with another woman. And there's also somebody else asking for wool panties. In the end, Feris and Zeral made up, and Reiji goes to show just how much business is really booming for him. That was a solid enough first episode as while it's nothing groundbreaking or something that aims to be a great show, it's a show that's watched because it's fun, and nothing else. Seeing that it's being done by a studio with a bad rep that I wasn't expecting much out of this, but at least it's satisfying enough to warrant watching.

    As usual, the trial period rules are going into effect.

        I mainly tried this because Noela is adorable. The stuff with Feris was a bit uncomforable to be honest. Overall the show felt lacking. As I mentioned elsewhere, it feels like frosting without cake or ketchup without fries.

          Episode 2

          This ain't the place for chemical warfare.

          And now, it's a three-parter all while it still doesn't explain how Reiji got isekaied into this world and decided to open up a drugstore. First, he creates dish soap, something a popular local restaurant greatly appreciates, all while a mercenary group drops by and makes a scene. Then the customer from the first episode returns with a big problem on his hands as he needs something to keep the beasts from ravaging his farmland, and he makes just the thing, though Noela is also a beast. And then Annabelle is back wanting something to use as a chemical weapon, and Reiji invents his own version of the pepper spray. But those guys need to be careful about when they open them as they are quite potent. And now, Reiji is going to be getting a visit from the Demon Lord, and it will be interesting to see what his deal is as he doesn't look all that smart. While the episodes were enjoyable enough, I just get that feeling that something is missing.

            Episode 3

            Look, feel, and smell good.

            And the drugstore has gained another employee. First customer is a noblewoman who wants to improve her looks and get back at those lords who called her ugly, and Reiji comes up with a special ointment to do just that. Then comes her daughter Elaine asking for a love potion to attract some handsome guy, but instead of a potion she gets perfume that makes others envious of her. In the end, that got her to realize that she would prefer somebody she falls in love with naturally, and Reiji fits that bill, so that's her reason for wanting to work at the drugstore. And lastly, it's getting hot in here, so Reiji creates some cooling gel which works well. Too well in fact that using too much of it can cause one to freeze. It's more of the same, and I was hoping to see the demon lord drop by after how last week's episode ended, but that isn't the case here. Hopefully he does visit next time after being shown at the end.

              Episode 4

              This sauce is nuts.

              Reiji's next concoction is not medicine, but a kind of sauce that uses some extremely rare nuts that are hard to find. But by befriending a cute little squirrel after nursing it back to health that this rodent rewarded them with a gigantic stash of these nuts that require a squirrel's instincts to find. And it couldn't have come at a more opportune time seeing that the Rabbit Tavern is on the verge of being bought up by Fernando, who runs a competing restaurant and is seeking to run the competition out of town. But with business booming again that it's not happening, and at the very least Fernando got a nice consolation prize with a free meal made with that special sauce. And then Feris is back wanting a love potion, but the other girls at the shop drank them. At least Feris got her hands on what she wanted, but nevertheless it was just chaotic with how everything went down. Pretty much, this is more of the same, which gives me that dreaded feeling that by seeing it once, I've seen it all.

              So with that, the trial period is over, and after seeing just how repetitive this show is getting that I think I'm ready to shop for drugs at other places.
