The Apothecary Diaries So Far & Where it’s Headed

So Far in The Apothecary Diaries, we’ve seen Maomao go from indentured servant to Jinshi’s right-hand apothecary and medical mystery solver. Towards the end of the season, Maomao’s parentage has been revealed but more obstacles are headed towards Maomao and Jinshi. By the end of the season, Maomao has reunited her biological parents, and Jinshi is resolved to be steadfast in his feelings for the ever-oblivious Maomao.

So what’s coming next? The Apothecary Diaries anime is based on the manga and light novels and has been following them closely. This means we have a pretty good idea of what’s to come. For anyone who doesn’t want to wait for the next season, they can go read either of the two. Season 2 should start at the beginning of volume 3 of the light novels.

The Apothecary Diaries can be watched on Crunchyroll.
