Cells at Work is the new anime about anthropomorphic cells each doing their job in the human body on a daily basis. There are explanations on each cell and antigen, so the audience knows who is who.
The show mainly focuses on a red blood cell, who keeps on getting lost around the human body, transporting her carbon dioxide and oxygen to other cells. She is often saved from bacteria and antigens by white blood cell, who pops up in every episode. The only other regular group of characters that pop up in the show are the ever so cute platelets. They are grade school looking cells, who mend cell walls and wounds.
The anime is very entertaining and if you are feeling low, guaranteed to put you in a good mood. The characters are lovable, relatable and the theme song is so catchy. I find myself singing to it every week. The animations are great as well, following the new anime style that has come up. The character design on the cells are great too, with the red blood having a hat in the shape of a red blood cell and the white blood cell being white through and through.
The design of the antigens and bacteria on the other hand, are very weird. They remind me of aliens, which they technically are to the cells. The colours are too bald, but their facial expressions are the epitome of evil. They show the true expressions of evil characters in anime.
The human that the cells live in as well, seems to be getting unwell every five minutes. First there is cold bacteria, then a parasite, then cancer. The human seems to be going through the worst time of their life! It is wonder that he is still alive.
Despite the nit picking, it is great to watch and really enjoyable. You would not regret it.
