Mark your calendars for October 21, because that’s when “The Apothecary Diaries” anime will hit the screens with not just one, but three captivating episodes to kick things off. This enchanting series is based on the light novel masterpiece by Natsu Hyūga and Touko Shino.
Imagine a world where an emperor reigns over the East, and his palace, known as the hougong, is home to a host of consorts and attendants. Now, enter Maomao, an unassuming young girl who grew up in a quiet town under the guidance of her apothecary father. Little did she know that her fate would become intertwined with the opulent rear palace.
But don’t let her unassuming appearance fool you—Maomao is no ordinary girl. She possesses a sharp mind, a quick wit, and an unparalleled knowledge of medicine. Her life takes an unexpected turn when she’s abducted and sold into the service of the rear palace. What follows is a tale of intrigue, secrets, and unexpected alliances.
Things get even more interesting when Maomao encounters Jinshi, the observant head eunuch of the palace. He sees through her façade, recognizing her true potential. Jinshi’s keen insight leads to a surprising opportunity for Maomao—to become a lady-in-waiting for none other than the Emperor’s favorite consort. But there’s a twist: her role is to sample the lady’s food for any signs of poison, a task that holds immense significance in the palace’s complex web of power.
