posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Asia announced on Sunday that it has licensed Cells at Work!! (with two exclamation points), the second anime season of the anime based on Akane Shimizu's Cells at Work!! manga. The anime will premiere in Japan on January 9.
Hirofumi Ogura (Black Butler II, Null & Peta) is the new director of the second season (and the accompanying theatrical anime) at David Production. Yuuko Kakihara is returning to write and oversee the series scripts. Takahiko Yoshida is returning as the character designer, and Kenichiro Suehiro and MAYUKO are returning to compose the music. The anime will also feature a returning cast.
A theatrical anime based on a story from volume 5 of the original manga premiered in theaters in Japan on September 5. Aniplex stated that the anime will screen in theaters before it airs on TV as part of the second season. The theatrical anime's full title is: Tokubetsu Jōei-ban "Hataraku Saibō!!" Saikyō no Teki, Futatabi. Karada no Naka wa "Chō" Ōsawagi! (Special Screening Edition: "Cells at Work!!" The Return of the Strongest Enemy. A Huge Uproar Inside the Body's "Bowels!").
The Cells at Work! Code Black anime has a separate staff and cast from the second anime season of the main Cells at Work!! manga. That anime will also premiere in Japan on January 9, and Muse Asia has also licensed the anime.
