Cells at Work: Bacteria Manga Gets New Chapter
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The February issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine published a special chapter on Monday for Haruyuki Yoshida's Cells at Work: Bacteria! (Hataraku Saikin) spinoff of Akane Shimizu's Cells at Work! (Hataraku Saibō) manga, under the title Hataraku Saikin NEO. A new chapter will publish on the Palcy manga app around February.
Cells are not the only things at work in your body! Deep in your gut, a war rages...between good bacteria, bad bacteria, and opportunistic pathogens—and occasionally, against outside invaders! And if bitter rivals Welch bacillus, leader of the bad bacteria, and Bifidobacterium, leader of the good, get their way, the battle for intestinal supremacy and safety will never end!
The original manga has inspired various spinoffs, including Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshiya's Cells at Work! Code Black (Hataraku Saibō Black). The anime adaptation of the spinoff will premiere in January 2021. Cells at Work!! (with two exclamation points), the previously announced second anime season of Shimizu's original Cells at Work! manga, will also debut in January 2021. The first television anime of the original manga premiered in July 2018 and aired for 13 episodes.
