Strep throat! Hay fever! Influenza! The world is a dangerous place for a red blood cell just trying to get her deliveries finished. Fortunately, she’s not alone … She’s got a whole human body’s worth of cells ready to help out! The mysterious white blood cell, the buff and brash killer T cell, the nerdy neuron, even the cute little platelets—everyone’s got to come together if they want to keep you healthy!
As someone in the medical field who's had to take several biology and anatomy classes, this anime is very accurate! What was even more interesting was how everything was explained to make it simple and understandable. I also loved how they drew the viruses and bacteria based on their names and how they actually look. Not only was it enjoyable to watch because of its accuracy, but it was also a very funny anime! The characters were funny and very interesting because they had personalities based on what they do in the body. I would suggest this anime to everyone, especially to those interested in anatomy and healthcare.
TL: DR A fantastic short anime series at 13 episodes about the world that Cells live in and how their dedication to doing hard work keeps us in tip-top shape. Join in on the short adventures of a Red Blood Cell as she finds herself making friends with helpful immunity cells and learns about how the work that she does keeps everyone moving! Personal: I highly recommend this Anime for something simple and fun to watch and eagerly await season 2, which has been announced to be in production. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Long Version: An enjoyable and comedic way to see how the world works! Cells at work take us on a kind of slice of lifestyle tour of the human body. We understand how, personified as humans, the cells in our bodies work diligently to keep there world ready and working! Meanwhile, our immune system works hard to help protect us from pathogens of many kinds. I would highly recommend this as a fun and casual way of enjoying an unorthodox slice of life anime, even if your not into that kind of story like I am! If you're watching this to get a good grade in your homework, I’d say keep studying but use this as a fun way to relax and touch on the basics while you have a brain snack. It’s all useful information and nothing that can’t be corrected or elaborated on with a quick wiki search. And with only 13 episodes in the first season, how could this not be on your hit list? Come along for the ride as we see how our bodies fight every day for us and keep us working hard!
Overall I think Cells at work! is an enjoyable watch and you should definitely check it out. However this anime would be so much more enjoyable for someone with a medical background. Even though all the words and body parts are explained I think if you had a medical background and knew the workings of the human body you would appriciate and enjoy it much more. The main characters were very likeable but I would have loved to see more character development and for me there was a bit of a lack of story line. In each episode there was a new threat that arose and was solved within the one episode, I would have liked the episodes to link together a little more, creating a more solid story line and time for character development.
