About The Apothecary Diaries
Square Enix Manga & Books will publish the manga in English over the coming months. That said, J-Novel Club is already posting the series digitally. Here’s their synopsis of the series:
In the East is a land ruled by an emperor, whose consorts and serving women live in a sprawling complex known as the hougong, the rear palace. Maomao, an unassuming girl raised in an unassuming town by her apothecary father, never imagined the rear palace would have anything to do with her—until she was kidnapped and sold into service there.
Though she looks ordinary, Maomao has a quick wit, a sharp mind, and an extensive knowledge of medicine. That’s her secret, until she encounters a resident of the palace at least as perceptive as she is: the head eunuch, Jinshi. He sees through Maomao’s façade and makes her a lady-in-waiting to none other than the Emperor’s favorite consort… so she can taste the lady’s food for poison!
Lastly, the first four episodes of The Apothecary Diaries are available now on Crunchyroll. The first three episodes of the dub will release tomorrow.
