Cells at Work! is an anime adaptation of a Japanese manga series, written and illustrated by Akane Shimizu, which is being published by Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine since March 2015. The manga currently has five (5) volumes.
Aniplex of America, which distributed the anime series in North America, has described the anime series:
This is a story about you. A tale about the inside of your body…
According to a new study, the human body consists of approximately 37 trillion cells. These cells are hard at work every day within a world that is your body. From the oxygen carrying Red Blood Cells to the bacteria fighting White Blood Cells, Get to know the unsung heroes and the drama that unfolds inside of you!
The anime adaptation is directed by Kenichi Suzuki, who previously worked in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure anime series, while Orange scriptwriter Yuuko Kakihara handled the series composition.
Takahiko Yoshida, who previously worked on the two seasons of Honey and Clover, handled character designs, with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable’s Kenta Mimuro worked on cell character’s designs, which was produced by David Production.
The Japanese voice cast are lead by Kana Hanazawa (“Kosaki Onodera”, Nisekoi – False Love) as “Red Blood Cell” (Erythrocite), and Tomoaki Maeno (“Naotsugu”, Log Horizon) as “White Blood Cell” (Neutrophil).
Mamiko Noto, who previously voiced characters in A Certain Magical Index (as Aisa Himegami) and Hanasaku Iroha (as Tomoe Wajima), served as the show’s narrator.
