Written and illustrated by Akane Shimizu, Cells at Work! was first serialized in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius in 2015. It features the anthropomorphized cells of the human body, with the story mostly told from the perspective of a clumsy but lovable Red Blood Cell along with her reliable friend Neutrophil, who almost always ends up saving her from pathogens. The series depicts their daily activities and respective responsibilities as cells in the human body.

The manga series has already received several spinoff mangas, such as Hataraku Saikin (Bacteria at Work), Hatarakanai Saibou (Cells That Don’t Work), Hataraku Saibou BLACK (Cells at Work! Black), Hataraku Saibou Friend, Hataraku Kesshouban-chan (Platelets at Work), and the latest, Hataraku Saibou Lady (Cells at Work! Lady).

Cells at Work!’s first season, which was produced by David Productions, aired from July to September 2018. Its success among fans had led to a stage play adaptation that ran last November, and a mobile game entitled Itsudemo Hataraku Saibou.

The series’ second season is set to adapt Cells at Work! Code Black, which tackles how cells work in a body that is not healthy. Season 2 is set to be directed by Hirofumi Ogura (Black Butler II), who replaced season 1’s Kenichi Suzuki (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures). Yuuko Kakihara (Persona 4 the Animation) is set to return to oversee the series’ scripts. The series is still helmed by David Productions.The series is slated for a January 2021 release.
