Cells at Work! Anime Gets 2nd Season

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
1st season premiered in July

The official Twitter account for the Cells at Work! anime announced on Saturday that the anime will get a second season. The staff will reveal more details about the new season at a later date.

The first television anime aired from July to September. Aniplex of America has licensed the series and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. A new anime episode aired in December and Crunchyroll also streamed the episode.

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!

Kenichi Suzuki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Drifters) directed the television anime at David Production, and Yuuko Kakihara (Tsuki ga Kirei, Persona 4 The Animation) was in charge of series composition, and both Suzuki and Kakihara penned the scripts. Takahiko Yoshida (Welcome to the NHK, Yowamushi Pedal) designed the characters and was also credited as chief animation director, while Kenta Mimuro was credited as cell character designer, prop designer, and animation scene animation director. Keiko Tamaki was credited for sub-character design. Kenichiro Suehiro (Re:Zero, Girls' Last Tour) composed the music at MAYUKO.

Shimizu launched the Cells at Work! manga in the March 2015 issue of Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius. The manga has inspired several spinoff series such as Hataraku Saikin (Bacteria at Work), Hatarakanai Saibō (Cells That Don't Work), Hataraku Saibō BLACK (Cells at Work! Black), and Hataraku Saibō Friend.
