The official website for Dr. Ramune: Mysterious Disease Specialist describes the story:
“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 is able to quickly uncover the root cause of his patients’ deep-seated distress and cure them.”
The anime’s cast includes: Yūma Uchida as Ramune, Takuma Nagatsuka as Kuro, Kana Ueda as Ayame, Nobuhiko Okamoto as Nico, and Junichi Suwabe as Momiji. Additionally, Hideaki Oba is directing the anime at Platinum Vision and Ayumu Hisao is supervising and writing the series scripts. Youko Satou is designing the characters and Toshimitsu Kobayashi is handling the sub-character designs.
