    I really want this translated for multiple reasons: it's not an isekai, it has a female protagonist, it's a mystery series, and because it has a historical setting (which we don't have a lot of in English). Since I'm never gonna get the Saiunkoku Monogatari novels over here, this is the next best thing. It doesn't seem like any of this publisher's series have been licensed over here by anyone yet, though.

    This looks like one I’d love to see translated too. Imperial court medical mystery? Sounds great!

  • Throwing in my support for Kusuriya. It's such a fun series with quite the eccentric protagonist.

  • Ah, KnH! Its such a fun novel :3 I love this series and the protagonist. She is such a strong female lead~
