Japanese Title: はたらく細胞
The number of cells in the human body is about 37 trillion. The cells live in a world called The Body and today too they are not resting but working happily. Red cells carry oxygen, white cells fight bacteria… And there is also drama with unknown cells.
A new anthropomorphic series based on the popular manga Cells at Work!
Oh wow, how cute is this anime? Everything in Cells at Work is very charming. The bright colors and busy atmosphere grab your attention right away, and don’t even get me started on how catchy the opening theme is! The first episode has enough going on for it to keep up your interest and get introduced to the world of the series. The perkiness and enthusiasm of the newbie red cell that doesn’t really know what she is doing and the cool, competent white blood cell meshed together perfectly! My personal highlight of the episode was the pair of them cooing at how cute the platelets are.
I have a feeling this may be the most fun series of the summer season, and I’m looking forward to getting some education on what the hell is going on inside of me.
A story about the working lives of the cells in our body – it sounded pretty surreal when I heard about it. But when I watched the first episode, it was actually pretty educational and entertaining! The visual depiction of how the body fights bacteria certainly made it much easier to learn, plus the hard medical terms mentioned got me researching online, so it added to the things that I know! It would’ve been a boring show if the presentation was dull, the art and animation were bad, and the characters weren’t appealing, though! That’s why I’m glad to say it’s a feel good, pure anime that’s visually pleasing! Despite only being a humanoid version of our cells, they were well-designed and unique! I thought all the Red Blood Cells would look alike and have the same personalities, as with the other cells, but they were all actually different (albeit with the specific uniforms and the same trope personality)! Don’t even get me started on those cute, CUTE Platelets!
Bottom line: If you want to have an anime that will take away your stress, and teach you something new at the same time, watch this refreshing show!
