MANGA.TOKYO will soon be back with more news for Cells at Work!.
This is your story. The story of your body.
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! will get an anime soon! It’s the one story anybody can sympathize with, as it could also be the story of your body.
