So you're probably asking whether Isekai Yakkyoku is good, or if it's worth watching.

First impression written when the anime was still airing

Here's another isekai fantasy over-powered main character anime, complete with the dying from overworking trope. Isekai Yakkyoku seems like another slow paced, slice of life, isekai fantasy anime with an OP MC.

Truthfully, I am quite enjoying it from the first few episodes. The plot is nothing unique, but it's still fairly enjoyable, and chill to watch. There's a heavy chemistry theme being used here, so chemistry nerds might enjoy it more than me.

The art style is another typical aspect, relatively mediocre, though fits this anime pretty well.

So far, Isekai Yakkyoku has been fairly good. I'm looking forward to finishing this new series.

Opinion written after the anime was completed

And boy was I not disappointed. The story goes nicely and, frankly, is very cool.

The idea where the main character is an overpowered healer, or in this case pharmacist, is quite reminiscent of Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannou Desu. P.S. if you haven't watched that, I utterly recommend watching it!

The pacing felt good throughout the episodes, and there's always something interesting going on in this anime.

Though, it needs to be admitted that, in my personal opinion, the final episode left a little to be desired. It felt a cut short compared to the rest of the season, and honestly looked almost like a rushed ending. But other than that, truly enjoyable story.

Happy to report that the art quality didn't face any drops. In fact, there was an increasing number of visual effects slowly towards the end.

However, inversely proportional to the increase in visual effects, is the decrease of chemistry references towards the second half. I suppose they aimed to avoid making that part an overstayed welcome?

Overall good fun and an interesting anime, definitely worth watching, or at least given a try!
