posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Muse Asia announced on Thursday that it will screen the "Special Screening Edition" of Cells at Work!! (with two exclamation points), the second anime season of the anime based on Akane Shimizu's Cells at Work! manga. The screening will be available in Singapore beginning on December 17, and in Malaysia and Brunei on as-yet unannounced dates.
The "Special Screening Edition" is a story based on the fifth volume of the original manga, which screened in Japanese theaters beginning on September 5, and will also be part of the second season's television airing. The full Japanese 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!").
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.
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.
