No, I did not. > Can you please move the other, newer posts over too?

Episode 05 lightly touches on this, actually. Not really a big "spoiler", but meh, spoiler box just in case:

Spoiler: show
They talk about cedar pollen allergies with familiarity, from the dramatic (like Memory Cell's Nostradamian prognostications of doom) to the mundane (like mentioning how "it's that time of year again" or some such). So the body in this series has definitely seen cedar pollen before.

Bigger spoiler for Episode 05. Wouldn't click until after you've seen it:

Spoiler: show
The fact that the host body takes steroids of all things to combat the allergy ... maybe it's just a Japan thing, no idea, but I'm still going to go out on a limb and guess that this body belongs to someone between the ages of 8 and 35.

I think it will be good reading practice. Probably will plan on it after the show wraps up. I can't imagine it will get a second season *SIGH* , even though it's amazing. It definitely strikes me as one of those "Made to sell the source material" kinds of anime. But we'll see! We'll see. :')

I love how the animators know we all adore the platelets and have taken to Where's Waldo'ing them throughout the later episodes where they're not as prominent. Any time they're on screen is a delight. They're just so gosh durn adorable!

Favorite character so far is either the Platelet captain or else Eosinophil. Waifu #1 is Macrophage, Waifu #2 is Mast Cell.
