Cells at Work Cast Reminds You to Cover Your Cough
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Cells at Work cast members want to remind viewers about their first defense to prevent catching cold this winter season: hand-washing. The anime series is focusing on the common cold in its special episode next week and voice actors Tomoaki Maeno, Kana Hanazawa, and Maria Naganawa dressed up as their respective characters to act along to a song about cold prevention.
Each voice actor appeared in their own video on the TikTok social app.
Cells at Work is in the midst of multiple collaborations in preparation for the special episode that will air on December 26 and recently announced mobile app. The Itsudemo Hataraku Saibō (Always Cells at Work) for iOS and Android devices is getting a limited tie-in app keyboard by Simeji. The keyboard includes unique character designs and sound clips by Maeno, Hanazawa, and Naganawa. Simeji's special site for the keyboard is holding its own campaign where app users can win autographed signboards.
The anime special's close proximity to Christmas inspired the Animate Shinjuku store to create a Cells at Work Christmas tree. Visitors can find the tree inside the store and receive a Cells at Work Christmas card from cosplayers.
Kodansha Comics is publishing Akane Shimizu's original manga in English, and it describes the story:
The average human body contains about 60 trillion cells, and each of them has work to do! But when you get injured, viruses or bacteria invade, or when an allergic reaction flares up, everyone from the silent but deadly white blood cells to the brainy neurons has to work together to get through the crisis!
The television anime aired from July to September.
