Cell at Work: Code Black is PV video narrated by Kenjiro Tsuda – TV anime set for 2021

Hey there anime fans! We already know that the cells are working hard helping everyone through this pandemic but their job is not easy. The official Twitter account for Cells at Work show us in the first video for the spinoff adaption, Cell at Work: Code Black. This spinoff series shows what happens when the cells have to deal with the illness of an unhealthy body.

Cell at Work: Code Black TV anime is scheduled to premiere January 2021. The second season of Cells at Work! is also premiering in January.

Kodansha Comics licenses the series and describes it as:

In this new spinoff of the hit manga, a newbie Red Blood Cell is one of 37 trillion working to keep this body running. But something’s wrong! Stress hormones keep yelling at him to go faster. The blood vessels are crusted over with cholesterol. Ulcers, fatty liver, trouble (ahem) downstairs… It’s hard for a cell to keep working when every day is a CODE BLACK!

The manga and anime Cells at Work! showed you what happens when a young, healthy body gets in trouble… but what if the body wasn’t so young, and was never very healthy? This new take stars a fresh-faced Red Blood Cell and his friend, the buxom White Blood Cell, as they struggle to keep themselves and their world together through alcoholism, smoking, erectile dysfunction, athlete’s foot, gout… it’s literal body horror! Whoever this guy is, he’s lucky his cells can’t go on strike!

Cells at Work! is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Akane Shimizu. It features the anthropomorphized cells of a human body, with the two main protagonists being a red blood cell and a white blood cell she frequently encounters.
