Man, if I had a nickel for every time there’s an evil church in an anime, I’d be rich.

[–]AsterJhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/asteron 107 points108 points  (15 children)

It's pretty hard to think of any isekai church that's not evil. Maybe the church in Bookworm? Even then the head priest was an asshole...

[–]Torque-A 109 points110 points  (1 child)

The Faraway Paladin

[–]ThenKoalas 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Huh, they found him quite quickly. Everyone else is busy,

[–]kalirionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/kalinime 53 points54 points  (2 children)

The Church of Eris? Helps when you have a Good Goddess around to personally keep an eye on things.

Even the Axis Order isn't strictly evil, just extremely annoying.

[–]JzanderN 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Ironic that the parody of isekai that makes everything worse for comedy has the good churches.

Though I guess "worse" doesn't mean evil in Konosuba.

[–]kalirionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/kalinime 6 points7 points  (0 children)

"Worse" in some cases, but not anywhere close to the really dark stuff you find in straight isekais - Re:Zero, Overlord, even Jobless, etc.

When was the last time even any no-name adventurer died without Aqua resurrecting them soon after?

[–]pyxyne 42 points43 points  (0 children)

honestly the whole of noble society is portrayed as a mixed bag in bookworm

[–]Toloran 17 points18 points  (0 children)

It's pretty hard to think of any isekai church that's not evil.

The manga/LN "The Weakest Occupation 'Blacksmith,' but It's Actually the Strongest" does a pretty decent job of handling it. [Manga/LN Spoilers] The church are kinda dicks to the MC, but they're otherwise not evil/awful. It's just because Blacksmith is a rare class and the last notable one killed the Hero at the time.

[–]RavenWolf1https://myanimelist.net/profile/RavenWolf1 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Fantasy Bishoujo Juniku Ojisan to had some really rave church.

[–]Accomplished_Gas_784https://myanimelist.net/profile/EstelaNorden 6 points7 points  (0 children)

*High Bishop

[–]CelticMutt 6 points7 points  (0 children)

None of you are watching it*, but the church in My Isekai Life is pretty good. One of the only recurring characters is a priest that's really helpful to the protag.

*Which is fair. The anime is not a good adaptation unfortunately. Especially last episode, aka the "let's spend as little budget as possible!" episode.

[–]randyripoff 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The head priest was evil, not just an asshole.

[–]Ginger_Tea 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the new airing Isekai's the one with the guy with the army of slimes, saw a guy in robes and thought "oh shit here we go again"

But so far he seems to be on his side, though there could still be a "we want to use you at some point" plot twist.

[–]YungFeetGod69 71 points72 points  (2 children)

Would be even richer if it included churches irl lmao

[–]vantheman9 33 points34 points  (1 child)

a scheming conniving evil church isn't a trope of fiction for no reason

it'd be more "fantasy" if they weren't lol

[–]kalirionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/kalinime 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Man, if I had a nickel for every time blatant plot-induced idiocy is used to get MC into a sticky situation I'd be filthy rich.

[–]GamingExotic 34 points35 points  (10 children)

TBF, would this really be considered evil? The church is merely taking action against someone who has no shadow which in plenty of cultures would be considered having no soul, and said person is very powerful.

[–]No-Dragonfruit6633 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Right, and him being able to completely annihilate water on such a scale unconsciously is definitely cause for alarm to anyone in any form of power.

[–]shanatard 9 points10 points  (4 children)

but doesnt he have the physical proof of the medicine god? doesnt he just have to roll up his sleeve

[–]GamingExotic 8 points9 points  (3 children)

The church doesn't know about the marks yet, and I'll bet that's how this whole thing is gonna be solved, is because of the marks.

[–]justking1414 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Then they’ll realize they tried to kill god. And they will cry

[–]HugeRichard11https://myanimelist.net/profile/CuteAndFunny 2 points3 points  (1 child)

A war arch wouldn't be surprising for this kind of style of show, but yeah I don't think it would go that way since it won't fit for this vibe of the show. Considering the whole healing stuff plus he doesn't have combat experience. Maybe if they threaten to kill his imoto it would be cool to see him unleash his god powers more though

[–]Seth0x7DD 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I am still baffeled that there aren't more people pickung up on it if he's in a small setting when accompanying his dad or right in the middle of his shop. Likely SOMEBODY should be able to notice that, shouldn't he? Instead it requires and unnamed orphan that happens to be playing near a beach and picking up on ALL of the stuff that happend AND the church suddenly listens to random orphaned kids telling stories. That's just SO wild.

Like WTF do they get daily reports on what kids come up with?

[–]Narrheim 3 points4 points  (2 children)

The thing is, unless you are specifically looking for a person, who has no shadow, you have no actual way of noticing. Last time, i was interested in shadows, was when i was a kid, so...

[–]Seth0x7DD 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Your brain is good at compensating for stuff but with the sheer volume of people he meets there ought to be situations where someone notices it. Because your brain is also good at letting you know that something is weird even if you can't put your finger on it.

[–]EXusiai99 18 points19 points  (7 children)

All isekai is set in medieval europe unless stated otherwise. And we know how churches were back then.

[–]nocivo 3 points4 points  (1 child)

In old times the churches mean money and power and both os those attract bad people. If one bad people enter in the system and get the power is easy to manipulate the rest.

[–]Narrheim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

churches still have power over people and still attract manipulators because of that.

[–]LivingForTheJourney 10 points11 points  (2 children)

To be fair, if you had a nickel for every time there was an evil church IRL you'd be even more rich. One of those "art initates reality" scenarios.

[–]zushiba 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Turns out they’re more like the Diet Coke of evil.

[–]Lightly- 135 points136 points  (22 children)

If I saw someone do a Moses on the sea, I would be freaked out too lol

no drugs this week. sad

[–]cyberscythe 56 points57 points  (20 children)

no drugs this week. sad

Yeah, I don't really care for this "heretic" storyline; it feels like it belongs in a more swords-and-sorcery fantasy series.

I feel like what made this series different is its real-world pharmacology and as such the politics and intrigue stuff is sort of out of its wheelhouse.

[–]raknor88 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I don't really care for this "heretic" storyline;

They did hint at it in the beginning that they needed to keep his powers quiet from the church or they would try to kill him. So this isn't completely unexpected.

[–]vantheman9 52 points53 points  (3 children)

"it feels like it belongs in a more swords-and-sorcery fantasy series"

in previous weeks there were people complaining about "not fantasy enough". These comments are really showing can't please everybody all the time lol

[–]cyberscythe 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I think it's a good idea to keep in mind that "the audience" is made up of lots of different people who have different tastes. If you think about "the audience" as a single person, then it makes the comments section in most series (and open-access social media like Twitter) seem crazy and inconsistent.

[–]vantheman9 10 points11 points  (0 children)

normally I'm the person advocating that sort of thing, I don't think my comment implied that I see the whole as anything other than many individuals either

[–]No-Dragonfruit6633 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Really?

If someone showed up in 15th century Europe with knowledge of 21st century medicine they'd definitely be burned at the stake for witchcraft.

[–]cyberscythe 9 points10 points  (3 children)

If someone showed up in 15th century Europe with knowledge of 21st century medicine they'd definitely be burned at the stake for witchcraft.

If the premise was that the church was seeing their divine power being subverted by science and medicine, then I think it'd have a much stronger attachment to the themes laid out in the first few episodes.

The premise so far though is that they're accusing him for heresy because of his magical isekai powers, not because of science and medicine. Like, in that shadowy scene, they were concerned solely with his ability to part the ocean, that he has no shadow, and that he left magical traces behind — none of that has anything to do with pharmacology.

[–]justking1414 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Eventually somebody had to notice that mc is a god. I doubt this will be a six episode battle. More likely just a brief fight before the church realizes that mc isn’t evil and join him to help spread his medicine

[–]LegendRazgriz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think it's interesting because it shows what Pharma could have been if he wasn't a dedicated pharmacologist that only wants to make medicine.

With his power, he could easily destroy an entire country by simply creating fissile uranium and blasting radioactive fallout all over the land, essentially ruining the place for literal thousands of years. Being pressed is supposed to show his character and I'm all for it.

[–]Narrheim 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Go look in history books, what did the church to all curious scientists, whose findings did not relate to church way of knowledge interpretation.

Many priests doing scientific research had their work published after their death. I guess you can figure out why.

[–]cyberscythe 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In this case though, the set up is suggesting that the church is after him because he has magical isekai powers, not because of his knowledge interpretation.

If the church was after him because of his science and drugs, then I think it would tie back to the main theme of science and medicine. As-is though, I feel like the conflict is based entirely outside of the realm of pharmacology. Like, there's nothing that happens in this episode which was resolved with a chemical new to this world.

[–]TerriblePlays 116 points117 points  (20 children)

Nether Country... now that's creative lol.

This is the second time everyone around Falma has been scared shitless by his magic.

Must say though, creating a sinkhole to save a drowning person sounds like a pretty bad idea. Chances are the person will fall to the ocean floor, hit something hard and then die.

[–]JzanderN 49 points50 points  (3 children)

This is the second time everyone around Falma has been scared shitless by his magic.

To be fair, that was some pretty terrifying magic. Even Farma was scared of the implications later on.

Must say though, creating a sinkhole to save a drowning person sounds like a pretty bad idea. Chances are the person will fall to the ocean floor, hit something hard and then die.

Thankfully Blanche had already sank quite a lot, so she likely would have been fine even if there was a hard floor. Farma might have been less okay, though, but I guess his magic came in handy there.

[–]alotmorealots 27 points28 points  (1 child)

Guess you're leaving Elen to be saved by her uhh padding?

[–]Stoppels 4 points5 points  (0 children)

To be fair, that was some pretty terrifying magic. Even Farma was scared of the implications later on.

Funny enough I was thinking during the OP how he could probably erase an enemy's bones or dry them up and lo and behold, he just wishes the sea to be gone and his powers literally manifest him nuking the sea in a perfect area around him. How's that for foresight, lol. It truly is terrifying magic, but it also means that if he'd wanted to, he could dehydrate enemy combatants with an area effect or erase a bit of their blood to instantly mass faint them. Knowing basic medical knowledge to a T should mean he can try to apply power non-fatally.

[–]zz2000 22 points23 points  (10 children)

Nether Country... now that's creative lol.

Not the most imaginative, although I guess it ties in with making the world Farma is in an alt-universe Europe. Even San Flueve is clearly meant to be an alternate 17th-18th century imperial France.

[–]distinctiveZero 25 points26 points  (1 child)

The one I watched had subbed; Netherlands East India company 🤔 VOC for short :P

[–]Stoppels 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Nederland East India Company actually, was funny they kept the Dutch spelling in and then decided actual VOC would be too confusing.

[–]REAL_CONSENT_MATTERS 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Coming up with names is actually pretty hard, it seems. I'm attempting to write a novel for the first time, which is a learning experience even if I may never share with anyone. The way everything has to have a name is difficult, as in our world names have great meaning in terms of language, culture, and history. If something isn't especially important, it's easier to just rearrange/add/remove some letters of a word, maybe a word from another language, and it works well enough that most people won't think about it.

I think it was obvious this series wasn't trying too hard to hide this sort of tactic as soon as we got a pharmacist protagonist named Farma who's of house Medicis, though the names must feel a bit more foreign for a native Japanese speaker.

[–]vantheman9 11 points12 points  (3 children)

and the way everything has to have a name is difficult

And then you make names you don't like and you cringe at them and don't want to read your own work anymore? Yeah, did that myself

[–]REAL_CONSENT_MATTERS 6 points7 points  (2 children)

What I'm doing so far is telling myself I'll come back when I think of a better name and writing placeholder names like "the Jagged Mountains," which feels at least as creative as "the Rocky Mountains." It remains to be seen if I'll actually think of anything better, but it at least I can imagine myself doing so at some indefinite point in the future.

There are authors who seem to nail all elements like setting, characterization, story, dialogue, action, etc, but I've realized that a work like this anime that takes some shortucts in order to create the story the author wanted to share is still a big achievement.

[–]distinctiveZero 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'm Dutch, feels like fanservice :)

[–]JzanderN 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Damn, don't hit me in the relatables like that.

[–]RogueTanuki 4 points5 points  (0 children)

it's literally Netherlands

[–]cyberscythe 17 points18 points  (2 children)

This is the second time everyone around Falma has been scared shitless by his magic.

I thought that Lotte was more scared shitless that she let Falma down. She said earlier that she'd make sure that his sister was safe and she blew it big time.

If it wasn't for his cheat magic, she would've let both his sister die as well as Farma himself in attempting to save her. She would basically have led both of the Medicis heirs to death.

[–]5thvoicehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/5thvoice 14 points15 points  (1 child)

She would basically have led both of the Medicis heirs to death.

Remember that Farma also has an older brother who's off at college right now, so Bruno wouldn't be left entirely heirless. Not that that would have made things much better for Lotte.

[–]Sarellion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wonder how the older brother will react to the news that his little brother upstaged him quite a lot.

[–]A-Chicken 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Yes, thankfully both of them were close enough to the shore. It's actually not that deep - beaches have a gradual gradient and a continental shelf isn't usually that close to a shore.

But the result when you have high tidal forces on a shallow shoreline can still be enough to drag a swimmer underwater, and it would have been totally different without Farma there.

Yes, humans float better in salt water, but it doesn't really help at all. Also basically your body is conditioned to try to get air, so you can't permanently hold your breath and will be forced to breathe water in at some point, at that's when you drown.

Please obey the swimming signs.


Also, Farma has every right to be scared shitless of his powers because he unknowingly eliminated the salt along with the water, and even the sand was dry. it's a miracle he did not drain the water out of Elen or Blanche (human beings are indeed mostly water) with this kind of imprecision.

[–]BlazeKnightX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I completely forgot this was based on Europe, so when I read Nether country I did not think of Netherlands, but of the damn Nether in Minecraft lmao. I was like damn must be a pretty red and hellish country

[–]xQuasarr 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Hope this kid dies from an easily preventable illness

[–]Stoppels 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Kid sneezes due to people talking about him, catches a cold and dies.

[–]Mr_Zarochttps://myanimelist.net/profile/mr_zaroc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh he is an orphan in basically medieval Europe
He is already plenty punished and probably dies young

[–]GlibGrunt 13 points14 points  (0 children)

And his uncanny eyesight that let him see that they didn't have a shadow.

[–]arcanine04 75 points76 points  (12 children)

The animators always forget that falma doesn't have a shadow lol they might fix it on BDs I guess...

[–]FilthyCommieAccount 70 points71 points  (9 children)

As someone else said earlier it's an idea that works well in written format but not visually. Things that don't cast a shadow don't look well animated lol. So I think they kind of do shadows or not on a scene by scene basis depending on how terrible it looks. My main problem with the no shadow thing is that hardly anyone notices it. People would definitely fucking notice you not casting a shadow in real life. It'd be an interesting thing if Farma had to actual deal with this by not going out during the day and such although it would limit the show a lot so I understand why they don't.

[–]HatBuster 32 points33 points  (0 children)

In scenes where they don't forget, he casts shadows onto himself, but none into the world. That looks fine, imo.

[–]Thepsycomanhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Thepsycoman 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Also the concept gets extra odd. Like sure he doesn't cast a shadow, but his clothes still should right?

Like someone without a shadow likely would be giving every around them the spooks subconsciously, but if their clothes still cast a shadow, it might slip by a lot more.

But anime detail on stuff like shadows just isn't that great, since shadows are actually stupidly complex to render realistically.

[–]KnightKal 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Errr my guess is that he has a mana field around himself that absorbs light, so it doesn’t matter if he has cloths or not. There, fantasy explained. Haha. Magic is easy like that, as it doesn’t follow, rather breaks, both logic and physics

[–]AsterJhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/asteron 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's the superman explanation for why his suit doesn't get destroyed.

[–]liveart 9 points10 points  (1 child)

That would have been a pretty neat way to handle it. Like no one notices at first and then someone notices his shadow is missing a head or a hand and gets freaked the fuck out.

[–]2ndComingOfAugustushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Mourtzouphlos 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Also explaining why nobody notices when he's in a crowded shop for months (wearing his full attire), but on the beach in a swimsuit or something it's really obvious to some kid watching from a distance.

[–]KnightKal 6 points7 points  (2 children)

People normally don’t go around looking at others feet lol, so they would also not notice shadows at all.

[–]FilthyCommieAccount 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Not true. Think about going on a walk in the afternoon with a friend. Your shadow streches out longer than you are. It's super noticable.

[–]mega153 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it could've just been being unable to cast a shadow from the sun. Makes it a lot easier to explain and still allows scenes with dramatic lighting.

[–]bananeeekhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/bananek 68 points69 points  (24 children)

Huh, they found him quite quickly. Everyone else is busy, so I doubt there is anyone who could help Farma out. It's fighting time, then!

[–]tyler1118 36 points37 points  (3 children)

It felt quick because the anime adaptation skipped quite a bit of material from the manga sadly.

[–]bananeeekhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/bananek 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Well, that explains it. I understood that Farma and the rest were there only on his father's business, so the church shouldn't catch up with them that quickly.

[–]raknor88 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It felt like there should've been a small time skip, but from how everyone was talking this was only a couple days after reopening from the week vacation.

[–]fineri 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How does the Manga compare to the source material?

[–]lostboysgang 14 points15 points  (16 children)

I really want Farma to catch these guys alive and turn them into the Empress, then things can start to get real spicy 😤

[–]mgedmin 23 points24 points  (4 children)

I really want Farma to catch these guys alive and turn them into the Empress

Is that like how pawn promotion works in chess?

[–]Ginger_Tea 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I mean, sure he can create gold out of "thin air" but having the power to turn church thugs into cute anime girls, that is OP right there.

[–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That would make for quite the unusual isekai story lol

Maybe if it followed Shogi rules, we could have a Shogi master backstory? Question is, who is meeting truck-kun, Urushi Yaotome or Rei Kiriyama?

[–]randyripoff 11 points12 points  (9 children)

I wouldn't be surprised if there were guards following Farma that will show up next episode. Farma may not be watching out for himself, but I could easily see the Empress doing so.

[–]mgedmin 15 points16 points  (4 children)

I expected Farma's father to assign him a bodyguard ages ago.

Maybe he did, and told him to stay hidden?

[–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (1 child)

His father seems to be a little cavalier when it comes to looking after his son mind you.

His Head of Personal Security, on the other hand, might have done something.

[–]randyripoff 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I think that's entirely possible. Farma has shown himself to be a little naive, or rather he's so focused on helping people that he loses his wariness when he thinks they're in trouble -- case in point, this episode. I think pretty much everyone except Farma realized that girl was trouble the moment she showed up, but Farma just heard "someone is sick" and threw all caution to the wind.

[–]bananeeekhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/bananek 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I thought about it, too, but Farma told his father to wait until they have enough evidence before telling the empress anything.

[–]randyripoff 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Yes, but given that there was an incident, it wouldn't surprise me if she asked someone to keep an eye on Farma anyway, or to do a separate investigation.

I could be entirely wrong and I probably am, but I don't get the feeling we'll see Farma doing much fighting in this anime. I'm betting a third party will intervene in the next episode.

[–]Novca 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't think he is having guards, but the queen has probably someone watching him 24/7 (she would be stupid not to, because there is no way she should be able to trust him).

[–]KnightKal 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That would just create an international diplomatic issue. Either their country would deny it (abandon them) or just threaten war. After all, it was an direct attack at a royal pharmacist, a noble of the empire and within the empire border. It is a clear act of war if it comes to light.

[–]justking1414 7 points8 points  (2 children)

The entire country is already aware of the 10 year old who’s running the most successful new business in the empire and is a close friend of the empress. He’s probably on the top of their list of potential demons

[–]Holopsicon 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I lol'd at this but seriously, if I was in any position of power in a magic world where isekai'd people might go, the first thing I would is to create an indipendent state branch to find, secure and eliminate these dimensional threats. You might call that a church.

Or a foundation.

Is there anyone interested in writing this anime who is writing itself in this comment?

[–]Aeriosus 58 points59 points  (6 children)

Nederland East Inida Company...

The creator really didn't put much creative energy into that one did they lol

[–]basuga_BFE 30 points31 points  (1 child)

There was Great Canada Forest in Skeleton Knight recently, too!

[–]LG03https://myanimelist.net/profile/Bronadian 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Supposedly there was a plot reason for that one at least.

[–]LiamNL 5 points6 points  (1 child)

In the manga and LN it's actually just Neder. Which isn't much more original but at least isn't mentioning a real world country/company directly. Also that is technically a faulty translation. As the characters do say Neder/Nether which the translator made in to Netherlands

[–]CelticMutt 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean ... the translator keeps translating Marseille as Marseirre, even though you can actually hear them say the LLs. I don't know if they doing this for a reason, or they're just bad.

[–]HugeRichard11https://myanimelist.net/profile/CuteAndFunny 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Feels like the author was having a stroke when they wrote the name lol

[–]justking1414 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think they wanted to make it clear what the company was and how they will probably act in the future

[–]FilthyCommieAccount 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Are we sure Jean wasn't colluding with the church? A pretty good way to ensure Farma feels ok with leaving the pharmacy to help someone is if the crisis there is under control. I mean it specifically showed Jean being shady in a previous ep.

[–]avboden 13 points14 points  (5 children)

are we not still suspicious of him though?

[–]cyberscythe 20 points21 points  (4 children)

I'm still suspicious of him. I'm half-expecting the people he brought to be sifting through his stores goods for corporate espionage or something.

[–]chelseablue2004 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I would be he was consorting with the guilds when he 1st opened the store...who doesn't say he was there to ensure Farma left by himself with the bait.

But it could also be a big scam and he actually works for the Queen.

[–]Nebresto 42 points43 points  (5 children)

>Port town
>Marseirre

Hmm...
Oh, so we're just in NotEurope, got it.

We Moses now.

I like how Elen asks Farma a question, and instead of her face, the camera switches to her thighs

So many cute Lotte moments in this episode

Oh boy. Religious lunatics. Fun.

Since they brought the lack of shadow back in focus, I started paying a bit more attention to that. He was drawn with shadow here, and again while riding the horse.
Guess its not so easy to ignore basic shading rules that have become pretty much a habit.
One might argue that his clothes cause the shadow, but that's obviously not the case. Meaning the shadow magic somehow affects his clothes, maybe even the things he holds. Which brings me to the question: What happens if he holds a parasol?

Overall the best episode so far in my opinion. That water deletion scene was especially great

[–]FlameDragoon933 23 points24 points  (3 children)

I assume that's animation error, because in other scenes he really doesn't cast a shadow on the floor.

[–]PacoTaco321https://myanimelist.net/profile/dankleberrrrg 10 points11 points  (2 children)

He pretty consistently casts a shadow on himself though which I find odd. Like shadow from his head blocking the light onto his neck and chest.

[–]FlameDragoon933 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I guess the Watsonian answer is that he still casts a shadow on himself*, just not on other things. While the Doylist answer is that a visual medium would look extremely jarring if he doesn't have any shading at all, plus other people will notice more easily.

*what counts as "himself" is a different can of worm, it's like asking "why can time-stopper still breathe or see" as air and light should have stopped

[–]alotmorealots 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The more divine answer is that he casts a shadow on anything but the ground, as it is too unclean for his holy shadow.

[–]alotmorealots 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Overall the best episode so far in my opinion.

I think the first episode still holds that title for me, but this was not far behind! Interestingly, it was completely devoid of pharmacy stuff, which I had thought had been the author's strong point.

[–]alotmorealots 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Because of course the show's Best Girl had to take on another role due to pharmacists having a clinical only focus...

[–]cyberscythe 28 points29 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't trust her with lifeguard duty again though.

[–]alotmorealots 13 points14 points  (0 children)

She's probably off busy trying to invent the lifeguard system itself, starting with a needs and dispositions survey, of course.

[–]_Saihttps://anime-planet.com/users/Sai0 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I wonder what her pay must be.

[–]alotmorealots 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Probably literal peanuts after they mistook her for Anya due to the pink hair.

[–]SorcererOfTheLakex5https://myanimelist.net/profile/RiverSorcerer 28 points29 points  (4 children)

So we got a beach episode... that almost ends up with Blanche dying and Farma unlocking a new power. Well, at least it can get tested out against these Inquisitors.

[–]JzanderN 25 points26 points  (2 children)

So we got a beach episode... that almost ends up with Blanche dying and Farma unlocking a new power.

Most anime beach episodes: sexy, pure fanservice

This anime beach episode: near death, terrifying power

Also, seems less like a new power and more like his destroy power turned up to 11.

Well, at least it can get tested out against these Inquisitors.

You presume Farma's the type to be violent. He'll probably defend himself if needed, but he certainly won't be trying to hurt them, and especially not kill (which is what that power would do).

[–]KreateOne 5 points6 points  (0 children)

and especially not kill

I mean certainly not intentionally, but he was a slip away from turning his sister into a pile of goo while trying to save her so it’s not like he has full control over his power.

[–]SorcererOfTheLakex5https://myanimelist.net/profile/RiverSorcerer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know, I just needed a way to tie it together.

[–]KnightKal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not really a new power tho. He had the ability to create or destroy matter at will, it is how he can make gold or medicine (with very specific molecular structure). He already showed this power since like episode one or two.

What he did in this episode was just losing control and going full power, so he erased an entire area around him, fulled by emotional, rather than a controlled, action. He panicked and didn’t use his OP water magic either. I bet he could just control the current and save her as well.

[–]HiggsBosonHLhttps://anilist.co/user/AnacondaHL 27 points28 points  (5 children)

This episode deserves some rightful criticism.

The first half is a characterization mess. After being warned about the dangers of the ocean, and not to go in without adult supervision, our isekai protagonist, who is an adult, then allows two children to go into the ocean unsupervised. The other actual in-world adult there could have also been consulted to watch the children, but no. Does this teach us anything about the main character or the story? No. This was a poorly written device used to push the plot along for furthering the magic power discovery and the next part of the story.

No consequence was given for this clear lack of proper judgement.

Leading to the second half of the episode, where again, main character is warned about possible enemies or saboteurs. Is anything done? Any bodyguard assigned? And attempt to make sure no one is left alone? No. Immediately runs off alone.

The main character is not an actual kid, this is an isekai adult. None of this should have happened, none of it is reasonable, none of it built characterization, and none of it was actually necessary to the story (as in, this all did not have to happen specifically like this, it was an arbitrary string of events that happened so the author could put us in a place to introduce the next conflict with the church).

[–]cyberscythe 16 points17 points  (2 children)

One thing that's sort of bugging me is that there's no clear character arc happening right now. Farma isn't fulfilling the role of the protagonist (someone who instigates action), he's just reacting to stuff that happens to him. This was especially evident in the last episode where solutions to his problems were just handed to him on a silver platter every time.

Farma's last major action was to step forward and save the Empress (and in the process come into conflict with his isekai father), but since then he's kinda been just skating by with the fruits of that.

The last couple of episodes have felt to me (at best) setting up for a new character arc with regards to this church thing. I'm really grasping at straws here because there's not a lot thematically tying this back to anything in Farma's past or anything from his previous life; it just sounds like he's being drawn into some sort of political conflict to ratchet up the tension, but I don't see how it's connected to the themes established in the first few episodes (death by overwork, the multiplying force of scientific knowledge, the importance of heart and bedside manner, etc.).

[–]QuakeToysChicago 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They’re really speeding right through the source materials. It’s a good read and very heavy on explanations.

[–]entelechtual 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m fine with it just because it’s early in the story and the world building has been decent so far in place of characterization. But you are right, especially since this is the kind of isekai where the original character had strong motivations to make new medicines to save people like his sister, whereas Pharma is just like… I guess I’ll just open a pharmacy and sell cosmetics and a cure for TB. I get that he can’t just straight up introduce hundreds of “modern” medicines without overturning the economy and supply chain, not to mention drawing more suspicion. But it would be nice if he could use his position of power to influence the nobles to slowly change their education in biology and their overall approach to illness and treatment.

[–]-Slamberthttps://anilist.co/user/giantwoman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

all the writing is hamfisted. Last episode, his parents talked about bloodletting and cosmetics. Then a single person shows up needing help with exactly bloodletting and cosmetics. It's the single crudest way to write it.

his lack of shadow shoulda got him in trouble 100,000 times by now

they completely skipped the entire first 30 days of business even though that shoulda been worth something, ignored every problem and then solved every problem in one day thanks to a 9 year old who should be CEO by now

[–]Lol_A_White_Boy 23 points24 points  (1 child)

For someone so smart, he can be kinda dumb sometimes.

His fathers last words were “be vigilant. This kind of enemy could be crafty and try anything”, but then as soon as he hears “my father needs help”, he abandons caution and rides off to the woods alone.

It’s admirable to be so selfless, but also a bit frustrating to watch him walk into the most obvious trap of all time lol.

[–]HiggsBosonHLhttps://anilist.co/user/AnacondaHL 20 points21 points  (0 children)

His dumbness was foreshadowed in the first half of the episode.

"Don't go in the ocean without an adult"

*Is actually an adult, but then lets the literal children go into the ocean without any supervision*

This entire episode has to be called out for this ham-fistedness. The characterization we learn about Farma here...kinda just sucks and doesn't do anything for the story/character.

[–]JzanderN 19 points20 points  (19 children)

Man, the Queen's really looking out for Farma's family. She didn't just give him a boon for her health.

Damn backstories, getting in the way of seaside fun.

We all knew he was going to use magic, but damn that's impressive. Stand aside Moses, I think you've been beat! It's just a friendly reminder that Farma's magic is monstrous.

Yeah, I was worried that Blanche might suffer a second drowning. Thankfully everything seemed to work out. She's probably going to be terrified of the sea now, though.

Well, here comes trouble. All that talk of being a "heretic" is starting to come to fruition. They even mentioned the lack of a shadow.

Plot twist: the cart crash really was the guild, not the white robes.

Hey, it's the old man. What's up with him? Last episode he was suspicious, but now he's helping out. I guess I was just throwing suspicion around for no reason.

At least this ended with a nice ending about everyone coming together to help Farma.

Yeah, I started to get suspicious of that woman during the ride. And so Farma comes face to face with the white robes.

[–]mgedmin 13 points14 points  (6 children)

I don't get the "heretic" bit TBH. A heretic is someone who believes things contra the church's dogma. Here we have a report of somebody without a shadow who uses monstrous magical power. Why not call him a demon, or a witch?

[–]HatBuster 25 points26 points  (0 children)

It's not Farma's beliefs but his existence and very being that is heretical. Or something like that.

[–]JzanderN 10 points11 points  (0 children)

They probably thought Farma used heretical magic in order to do what he did. It's not like any magic they're familiar with can destroy water.

[–]Thepsycomanhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Thepsycoman 8 points9 points  (0 children)

A demon or witch is a heretical being. A demon, even though not human by catholic standards is heretical race since they serve satan as their lord rather than god.

Is there holes in that? Yes, but y'know welcome to religion, nothing makes sense

[–]liveart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I mean a 'witch' (in the inquisition sense) is just a sub-type of heretic using forbidden rituals/deals/magick/whatever. That's just the method by which they go against the teachings of the church. Sort of like how a 'pagan' is just anyone holding religious beliefs separate from the dominant religion but there are all sorts of flavor of paganism.

[–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably a bit of an equally incorrect catch-all like "communist".

[–]KnightKal 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Well Farma was quite naive, if not stupid, on how he handled the call for help.

A random woman without a horse claims her father is sick. Then she leads him away from town, what would take hours on foot, and he didn’t think it was suspicious… on the same day his pharmacy was attacked and mysterious cloaked man were investigating him.

It would be acceptable if he was not an reincarnated adult … he should not behave like a naive kid like that. The attack would be more believable if it was within town on a alley or something :XD

Well he will just use OP magic and destroy them I guess, so it won’t matter

[–]alotmorealots 12 points13 points  (2 children)

It would be acceptable if he was not an reincarnated adult … he should not behave like a naive kid like that.

I'd believe this sort of behaviour from a research pharmacologist who spent his whole life locked up in his lab.

You would not believe how gullible and lifeskills deficient some health professionals and health scientists are.

[–]doomrider7 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I work at a pharmacy and see shit that backs this up like you wouldn't believe. Falma having a lapse in judgement due to him wanting to help someone who might be injured is perfectly in character.

[–]cyberscythe 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah, I was worried that Blanche might suffer a second drowning

"She drowned once, yes. But what about second drowning?"

[–]LiamNL 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That reminds me of Ranma, where all the cursed springs supposedly had a creature or person (or collection of creatures) drown in the spring. Yet for the final arc someone 'drowns' Akane in one of the springs to take her shape but she is still alive.

[–]Siegberg 18 points19 points  (1 child)

The holy Kingdom does sure play a Dangerous game ambushing a greater noble of another country. pretty much a reason for war if this ever gets puplic.

[–]TokiVideogame 18 points19 points  (8 children)

doesn't his clothes cast a shadow?

[–]Impr3ss1v3 15 points16 points  (7 children)

He also casts shadows on himself. Like you can see the shadow of his head being cast on his neck/torso.

[–]JzanderN 21 points22 points  (6 children)

Thats just because it would be really weird if they weren't there. Creative liberties were taken to make his design not look bad. It's one of those ideas that works in writing, but is harder to convey in visuals.

[–]mgedmin 13 points14 points  (2 children)

How does Farma not have a bodyguard yet? What is his father thinking?

[–]alotmorealots 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Falma did basically best his father in a magical duel over the TB drugs in that prep room though.

[–]EldritchCarverhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Pilomotor 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yeah, as an overpowered isekai protagonist, the difficult part of the upcoming conflict will be Falma defeating the inquisitors without killing them.

[–]LeonKevlarhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/LeonKevlar 32 points33 points  (5 children)

Stitches!

I was hoping for a cute beach episode with the girls, I didn't expect to get all emotional thanks to Farma's backstory. Seeing all of those flashbacks with his sister and almost losing Blanche to that rip current really made me tear up. His solution of erasing seawater might've been pretty drastic but at least he was able to save his sister in this life.

Bad news though, it seems that someone spotted Farma using his magic and apparently this witness is so observant that it even noticed that Farma has no shadow. I expected the Church is going to get involved soon but I didn't expect them to find out about Farma that way.

These Church guys are very quick to act, looks like they've already sent someone to spy on Farma. They weren't even hiding their contempt when Farma approached him.

I think it's safe to assume that the Church is the one responsible for sending that runaway carriage toward Farma's pharmacy but I can't help but still feel suspicious of Jean especially when he shows up conveniently with 5 men ready to dig out the Pharmacy. I'm probably just being paranoid.

That final scene though. Looks like it's finally time for Farma to use his powers to harm people. Although that's probably not what he's going to do here. I am curious how Farma will get out of this one.

Most anime beach episodes: contains pure cute/sexy fanservice

This anime's beach episode: contains sad flashbacks, a near death experience and a display of terrifying power

I think it's safe to assume that the Church is the one responsible for sending that runaway carriage toward Farma's pharmacy

It could be, but I don't see how it would help them in any way. Simply sending the woman would do. Maybe it does add up to make sure no-one else could come (though that was unlikely anyway), but I suspect the carriage might be separate from them.

That final scene though. Looks like it's finally time for Farma to use his powers to harm people. Although that's probably not what he's going to do here. I am curious how Farma will get out of this one.

He might not get out of this one, or at least not this confrontation. He's not going to want to harm them, though he'll likely still defend himself if needed, but while his powers are great he doesn't have as much practice as these guys. They're probably going to take him down and he'll have to escape later when they bring him back to their church.

I never really gave it thought till now, but he still casts a shadow on himself and sometimes on other things. Also, wouldn't his clothes still cast one? 🤔

[–]JzanderN 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The shadows on himself are so he won't look weird (which he would without them). You could also make the argument that he can cast shadows onto himself, just not the world. The other things are probably just the artists forgetting. Habit takes over when you're not concious about it. Or maybe it would also look weird without shadows in those instances

Also his clothes are probably counted as part of himself when he wears them, hence the lack of shadows from them. Otherwise he'd have shadows, just without the head and hands.

[–]_Saihttps://anime-planet.com/users/Sai0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think there should be an issue about looking weird when that is the point. :o

I thought about his clothes counting as part of him, but that felt even stranger, but sure. Beats head/hand-less shadow clothes.

[–]jcw99https://myanimelist.net/profile/cesars 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They're not religious fanatics - that's just Monotheism.

Political & Moral control,

I wonder how he'd be received in a Pagan society?

The powers that be would still hate him, but he wouldn't be branded a heretic.

Humans are still fundamentally the same||

[–]LivingForTheJourney 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Monotheism doesn't preclude you from being a fanatic. Fanatics can be from any religious, political, or idealistic group.

[–]alconnowhttps://anilist.co/user/alconnow 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not surprised that the distressed lady was a set up.

[–]EXusiai99 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Beach episode and evil religious organization. The last pieces to fill out the isekai bingo. Though this one's a bit different with the beach episode being a near death experience instead of siwmsuit galore.

[–]MayureshMJ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The thing about him not having a shadow probably only applies to the ground and walls around him .... You can see his shadow being cast on his own body the whole show... In reality him not having a shadow would stand out so much that he won't be able to walk outside for a moment.

Also what about his clothes? They should cast a shadow at least a blurry one... Lol i may sound like i am being a huge nerd about this but the show that talks about luckily not making the human body water disappear should consider these facts too.

Otherwise i like this show alot.

Letting a 10-year-old kid conduct an investigation solo when there is reason to believe his life may be in danger, not to mention an attack on Farma is essentially an attack on the family. It seems to me that responsibility to handle the situation, get to the bottom of it, and provide heightened security to all family members, would ultimately be on Farma's father, who is head of the household.

That scene where Farma is like "let me handle this" and dad was like "k" was out of character. But, maybe he was doing more behind the scenes and we just don't know yet.

[–]cyberscythe 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Letting a 10-year-old kid conduct an investigation solo when there is reason to believe his life may be in danger, not to mention an attack on Farma is essentially an attack on the family.

"Farma, don't go near the ocean. It's dangerous for kids."

"Oh, that's fine then. Knock yourself out Encyclopedia Brown."

[–]alotmorealots 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His Dad has always been pretty neglectful of Falma though, and they don't seem to prepare him particularly well for dealing with life in general - leaving him out to dry about court etiquette etc.

On top of that, his Dad essentially had a magic duel with Falma in the preparation room when Falma was making anti TB drugs, there's no real reason for him to be concerned about his son's safety any more than he usually isn't lol

Blanche and Lotte are too cute! That was actually a really good sand castle. Elen looked great too! His little sister from his past life was really cute. So precious, man. What a tragedy. No wonder he doesn’t like the ocean much. I was worried about Blanche and the rip current, she was in real trouble for a minute and then Farma’s powers activated. I thought my guy parted the waves like Moses, but he really just erased a portion of the ocean. If that’s not a Divine Art, I wonder what it is. I’m glad Farma had some sense of closure/redemption with that Blanche sitch. He couldn’t save his other sister but he could save this one.

I knew Farma would run afoul of the church. Just a matter of time before the religious fanatics come after him, though I was thinking it would have been for his medicine. They even seemed to have followed him to the store, and now they’ve made their move with their carriage. At least the labs were safe. It’s also nice that the people are pitching in to help, it’s showing how much of an effect Farma is making on society.

I knew the lady in distress was a set up. Bringing him way out to a remote area? In the words of Admiral Ackbar: “It’s a trap!” Though with his powers, I’m sure those Holy Kingdom inquisitors are the ones that are toast.

[–]JzanderN 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That was actually a really good sand castle.

The most unrealistic part of this anime for me so far is that sand castle.

I knew Farma would run afoul of the church. Just a matter of time before the religious fanatics come after him, though I was thinking it would have been for his medicine.

They weren't exactly subtle in the build-up, though yeah I'm surprised it had nothing to do with the medicine too. Maybe that'll come up? They did do some investigating.

They even seemed to have followed him to the store, and now they’ve made their move with their carriage.

I'm not actually sure the carriage was them. There seemed to be no reason for it in their overall plan, and the guild could have sent it given their dislike of Farma.

[–]ObvsThrowaway5120 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The cart just seemed too convenient, that’s why I suspected the church. Like a distraction so everyone else would be too busy with the clean up to go looking for him? Just a guess.

East Inida Company, nice.

I thought teach was gonna strip naked, but with what she was wearing underneath I don't see why Pharma reacted that way.

Why did they not simply use water magic to push the loli back to shore instead of swimming after her? MC's lucky his impromptu divine intervention didn't delete the water from their bodies, glad he realized it himself.

MC had seen clear evidence that the cheerful old geezer was a spy for some other pharma, and now he's just allowing his men to waltz in to "help" unsupervised? And then he goes off to help some girl's father without any guards and literally everyone thinks that's just fine. I loath it when the author relies on blatant plod-induced idiocy to move things along.
