Introduction: Set in the imperial harem, this eagerly anticipated anime adaptation of the immensely popular harem mystery-solving entertainment series, which has sold over 31 million copies, follows a girl who serves as a poison taster, solving various difficult cases that arise within the palace.

Story: In a great nation at the center of the continent, there lived a girl in the harem of the emperor’s consorts. Her name is Maomao. Originally a pharmacist in the pleasure district, she now works in the lower ranks of the harem. One day, she learns that all the emperor’s children are short-lived. Hearing that the two current princes are also gradually weakening from illness, Maomao, out of sheer curiosity, starts investigating the cause, insisting that there couldn’t possibly be a curse. Jinshi, a beautiful eunuch, appoints Maomao as the poison taster for the emperor’s favorite consort. Although she has no interest in people, her obsession with poisons and medicines is extraordinary. This pharmacist from the pleasure district gets involved in rumors and cases. While Jinshi keeps pushing troublesome matters onto her, Maomao continues to solve her tasks. The rare poison-loving girl dashes through the imperial harem again today.
