So long as people have hearts, there will be those with worries and concerns. Those hearts are then invaded by something strange, causing them to show strange physical symptoms. These ailments, called “mysterious diseases,” exist unseen to most people. Modern medicine offers no cure, but there is one doctor who fights these diseases along with his pupils. His name is Ramune. He looks nothing like a doctor, is foul-mouthed, and does whatever he pleases, but he has the ability to pinpoint the cause of the troubles hidden deep within his patients’ hearts and cure their mysterious diseases.
VA: Yuma Uchida (Kyo Soma in Fruits Basket 2019)
Ramune is a doctor who specializes in treating patients with “mystery diseases,” which are caused when something “strange” sneaks into the hearts of the weak-minded.
He is a foul-mouthed physician who is rude to most and very rarely understands the atmosphere around him.
Though, he is a very skilled doctor who can quickly identify the root cause of any strange illness.
But because he always puts his patients first, he tries not to treat them too harshly.
VA: Takuma Nagasuka (Sasaki in FLCL Alternative)
Kero is a junior high school student who works as Ramune’s assistant. He has good judgment and motor skills as well as a rational mind.
It’s hard to understand his mood due to having a poker face and is always having to play the straight man when Ramune says or does anything.
Kero trusts Ramune’s skills as a specialist of mystery diseases completely. He has a rational mind and strong judgment.
Kana Ueda (Rin Tohsoka in Fate)
The former owner of ‘Mysterious Wares Shop Akatsuki’ who creates mysterious wares herself. She’s currently only 9 years old, but she retained her memories of her past life where she lived to be 103 years old. She’s great at taking care of people but she also likes to provoke people when she can. When she knows she can win in a fight, she tends to do dangerous things.
Nobuhiko Okamoto (Bakugo in My Hero Academia)
Ayame’s great-grandchild from her previous life and the current owner of ‘Mysterious Wares Shop Akatsuki.’ He is very warm and kind and always smiling, so he’s extremely popular with the neighborhood kids who call him the smiley man. He’s known Ramune ever since he was a child and they think of each other as brothers. Because of a certain condition, he’s able to see his surroundings better than anyone else.
