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!
