Toshimitsu Kobayashi (Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life, Aoharu x Machinegun) is handling the sub-character designs.
The anime's official English website describes the story as follows:
"As long as hearts exist inside people, there will always be those who suffer. When something "strange" enters their mind, a strange disease will manifest itself in their body. The illness, which is called a "mystery disease" is unknown to most, but it certainly exists. There is a doctor and an apprentice who can fight the disease, which modern medicine cannot cure.
His name is Ramune. He acts freely all the time, is foul-mouthed, and doesn't even look like a doctor! However, once he is confronted with the mysterious disease, he can quickly uncover the root cause of his patients' deep-seated distress and cure them."
Aho Toro launched the manga in the November 2017 issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Sirius. The first volume was published on April 9, 2018. As of August 8, 2019, three volumes have been published.
