posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The May issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine published the first two chapters of Haruyuki Kichida's Hataraku Saikin (Bacteria at Work) spinoff manga on Monday. The manga is a spinoff of Akane Shimizu's Cells at Work! (Hataraku Saibō) manga. Shimizu is supervising the manga.
The manga is a comedy focusing on personified good bacteria and bad bacteria waging battle in the intestines.
Kodansha Comics is publishing the original Cells at Work! manga in English, and it describes the manga:
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!
Shimizu launched the manga in the March 2015 issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius and Kodansha shipped the fourth compiled volume in Japan in November. Kodansha Comics shipped the manga's third volume on February 28. The manga ranked on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook's 2016 list of top graphic novels for male readers.
