Do you like Osmosis Jones? Do you like anime?


Then you need to watch Hataraku Saibou, a.k.a. Cells At Work. One episode in and I am in Heaven. This show is an adorable delight.

Red Blood Cell AE 3803 is voiced by Hanazawa Kana (Psycho Pass's Akane). White Blood Cell 1146 is voiced by Maeno Tomoaki (Death Parade's Decim). Macrophage is voiced by Inoue Kikuko (Clannad's Sanae). Killer T Cell is voiced by Ono Daisuke (Suzumiya Haruhi's Itsuki). The narrator is none other than Noto Mamiko (School Rumble's Tsukamoto Yakumo). And the list continues. It's an all-star cast. :3 The platelet captain is voiced by Naganawa Maria, a relative newcomer born in 1995. She had me thinking she might be Kaneda Tomoko! So cute~! X3

I saw a preview of the first chapter before, but didn't know it was getting an animé adaptation. (Think I saw some buzz about it on tumblr but didn't realize it was real/the same series lol.) I'd like to take a look, but probably won't be able to for a while since I'll be on vacation.

Quick little update: I am through Episode 04 of Hataraku Saibou and I have loved every single episode to pieces. Objectively the show might be like a 7 or at best an 8, but for me personally it is loved like a 10 out of 10. I adore this show. Every. single. episode has been fantastic so far. So much love.

Five episodes in, Hataraku Saibou a.k.a. Cells At Work remains the best anime I've seen in a long time. Also one of the only anime I've seen in a long time , but shoosh.

This anime is such a delight. Absolutely adore it. A 10/10 in my heart.

Cells at Work is a treasure. You should read the manga too!

You guys realize I did split up a separate thread for this, right? (Kinda like cell division, eh? ;P *shot*)

Anyway I watched up to episode 04 over the weekend, will try to catch up with 05 tonight. It's quite a cute show. <3 Had a silly smile plastered on my face most of the time and was always eager to progress to the next ep. ^.^

I am kinda confused as to what age the human host body is supposed to be. The story makes it seem like it's encountering most of these threats for the first time, in which case dang what kind of environment is this poor kid living in. ^^;

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.
