Cells At Work
The story takes place inside the human body, where trillions of anthropomorphic cells each do their job to keep the body healthy. The series largely focuses on two such cells; a rookie red blood cell, AE3803, who often gets lost during deliveries, and a relentless white blood cell, U-1146, who fights against any germs that invade the body.
Another spin-off, titled Cells NOT at Work! (はたらかない細胞; "Cells That Don't Work") by Moe Sugimoto, about immature red blood cells (erythroblasts) that do not want to work, was launched in the September 2017 issue of Monthly Shōnen Sirius. It published its final chapter on November 26, 2021.
Another spin-off series focusing cells inside the body of a baby 40 weeks since conception and nearing delivery, with the cells knowing nothing, titled Cells at Work!: Baby! (はたらく細胞ＢＡＢＹ) illustrated by Yasuhiro Fukuda, was launched in the 45th issue of Weekly Morning on October 17, 2019. It concluded on October 7, 2021.
Another spin-off series focusing on cells in the body of an adult woman, titled Cells at Work!: Lady! (はたらく細胞ＬＡＤＹ) written by Harada and illustrated by Akari Otokawa, was launched in the March issue of Monthly Morning Two on January 22, 2020.
Another spin-off series focusing on white blood cells, titled Cells at Work!: White Brigade (はたらく細胞WHITE) illustrated by Tetsuji Kanie, was launched in the December issue of Monthly Shōnen Sirius, which was released in October 2020. The series ended serialization on July 26, 2022.
AE3803 gets lost again and finds herself in her birthplace, the Red Bone Marrow. She reminisces on being a young Erythroblast being trained by a Macrophage on how to be a Red Blood Cell. One day, while practicing to evacuate from bacteria, she got lost and was separated from the others. She got captured by a Pseudomonas bacterium who intended to torture and kill her before moving on to other blood cells. A young Myelocyte came to her rescue, and although no match for the bacterium, bought enough time for Macrophage and a Neutrophil to arrive and kill the bacterium. She thanked the Myelocyte for helping her and they went their separate ways hoping to someday see each other again. In the present, she runs into U-1146. As he offers to guide her to her destination, she suspects the Myelocyte who saved her grew up to be U-1146.
Part 1: AE3803 is assigned to be a mentor to a new red blood cell named NT4201, but finds herself out of her depth. AE3803 is embarrassed when she gets them lost several times and finds that NT4201 seems to already know about the body, and that she prefers to do her job as efficiently as possible and not associate with non red blood cells. The body suffers a head injury which results in massive blood loss. NT4201 starts to panic due to the change in her perfect schedule, but AE3803 manages to get her back on track. As the body temperature begins to drop, U-1146 defeats germs that entered through the injury, then is horrified to realize the number of red blood cells have depleted.
"Acquired Immunity": Memory Cell receives visions of destruction and believes he has gained the power to see the future. The Parotid gland gets invaded by the Mumps virus. As the immune cells fight them, B Cell cannot create antibodies without Memory Cell's information, but Memory Cell is obsessed with trying to see the future again and is useless. When B Cell strikes him in frustration, he realizes he was actually seeing his memories of the past when the body received a Mumps vaccine. B Cell creates antibodies from the information and wipes out the virus. Afterwards, B Cell explains why it took him so long, resulting in the cells beating Memory Cell up.
"Dengue Fever": The cells complain to Mast Cell when she releases excess histamines for a minor problem and causes inflammation, making her angry and vow not to do her job. The body gets bitten by a mosquito that sucks out several blood cells, then infects the body with the Dengue virus. The virus takes over Langerhans cells and they attack the body. Despite seeing the damage, Mast Cell refuses to release histamines until Basophil tells her to do what she thinks is right. The histamines distract the infected cells and alert the immune cells so they can wipe out the virus. The cells apologize to Mast Cell, but she gloats that she was right all along and did not do anything wrong with her previous histamine releases.
"H. Pylori": Normal Cell, who dreams of saving someone like the immune cells do, finds four cute and tiny bacteria and keeps them as pets. AE3083 delivers oxygen to him while U-1146 detects the bacteria and confiscates them for future disposal just as he is called to the stomach. Normal Cell follows him, worried about the bacteria. The stomach is being attacked by H. Pylori. When Normal Cell saves the bacteria from falling debris, one of them beats up the H. Pylori, allowing U-1146 to kill it. U-1146 realizes that they are Lactic acid bacteria, benevolent to the body. The one that fought stays in the stomach while the others stay with Normal Cell. U-1146 thanks Normal Cell and invites him to join him on patrol.
Rebecca Silverman of Anime News Network highlighted the educational aspect of the manga despite flaws in presentation of information, and ultimately found the manga entertaining with likable characters. Sean Gaffney of Manga Bookshelf called it a "very fun shonen action manga", complimenting the manga's ridiculousness and humor. Ian Wolf of Anime UK News gave the British Blu-ray release of the anime a score of 9 out of 10, and described the show as the most bloody on television, because so many of the characters are blood cells and thus means it contains more blood than shows depicting much violence.
Dr. Satoru Otsuka, postdoctoral fellow in the molecular neuro-oncology department of Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, praised the series' depiction of cancer cells during the series' seventh episode. Biology teachers at a high school affiliated with China's Southwest University were so impressed with the accuracy of the series that they assigned it as homework for their students.
The story follows the world of a human's body which is represented as cities with roughly 37.2 trillion anthropomorphic cells who work together endlessly daily to run their world. Everyday, they struggle to remove and resist against pathogenic cells such as germs and bacteria from invading the body.
There is no better time to tune into Cells at Work. The edu-tainment anime series centers on anthropomorphic cells in your body that engage in endless labor cycles to keep you alive, keep you healthy, and keep you safe from bacteria, viruses, parasites, disease, and other pathogens. If you ever wondered how your body does what it does and why you're able to be you on a daily basis, this is a fundamental place to start.
And the good news is that, while Season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix, Crunchyroll, and FUNimation, Season 2 is officially on the way. That means we'll get to continue the adventures of the hard-working Red Blood Cells (like AE3803), the lethal Neutrophils (like U-1146), and the ever-adorable Platelets while they struggle to keep the body safe from harm. And that is good news indeed. Keep an eye out for Cells at Work Season 2 in January 2021!
The prospect of removing your T-cells, genetically modifying them and putting them back into your system to fight cancer can seem a bit like science fiction and is potentially very frightening for many people.
"The animation magnifies the cells about 8 million times, taking people to the actual cell surface to explain how cancer can evade the immune system and demonstrating how CAR T-cell therapy targets and kills the cancer cells.
Cells at work is an anime written by Yuko Kakihara and Kenichi Suzuki that follows a red blood cell, humanized, as she moves through a human body doing her job. It is a classic slice-of-life anime, on a microscopic scale, in that she deals with everyday problems and does not have a dramatic quest.
The main character is Red Blood Cell, a quirky, easily confused, new blood cell. The audience gets to watch as she learns her way through the circulatory system with the help of other cells, primarily other types of blood and immune cells. Her bumbling nature is charming especially when it is framed as a constant drive to improve. Not once is Red Blood Cell discouraged by her troubles, despite facing many on her way to becoming a fully capable red blood cell. One episode is even entirely dedicated to her struggle for self-improvement.
Despite the many great aspects of the show, this anime is still far from perfect. The visuals are pretty but suffer from a simple style and rudimentary color shading. This is unusual for the Color Designer Aiko Mizuno who also worked on one of the Fullmetal Alchemist movies. Although this is only a slightly lower quality than what an avid fan of David Productions might expect. Similarly, the theme song for this show is incredibly simple and lacks some of the charm found in the rest of the show.
 Strictly speaking, the cells have no sex nor gender. However, in being anthropomorphized, RBC-3803 is depicted with feminine attributes and WBC-3803 with masculine. These pronouns are used gingerly for this article, to aid in clarity but without the suggestion of uniform or necessary gendering. 041b061a72
