I have always loved the storytelling style of every Japanese anime. But when I saw Hataraku Saibou back in 2018, trust me; I must say that was a whole new level of storytelling.

It does not matter if you are not a big fan of human physiology, Cells at Work will make you one for sure. And the good news is Cells at Work Season 2 has already finished airing in the winter of 2021. For those who are already a fan, this article will provide you with all the facts you need to know.

And for those who are thinking of what I am talking about, this article will let you know why you should watch this anime.

The First Release of Cells at Work:

David Production studio animated the TV series back in 2018. The show first premiered on July 8, 2018, and ended on September 30, 2018,  after airing 13 episodes.

The show belongs to the genre of biology and comedy as the story depicts different facts about cells of the human body in a humorous way. The manga has still been being published since 2015. Akane Shimizu was the creator of this amazing storyline.

What happened in Cells at Work Season 1?

Without even knowing the facts about how our human body works non-stop 24 hours, every single day from day 1 to the last breath before death, we keep living. So, if you want to know how systematically your body works, you have to watch Cells at Work.

In the first season, the cells of the body were introduced in the form of the human worker. They were the cells of a body that try to keep the body free from any allergens, bacteria, and harmful germs. In order to do so, different cells were responsible for different work.

For example, Sekkekkyuu AE3803 was a Red Blood Cell that was responsible for delivering oxygen to other cells. If she failed to do her task, the cells would die deprived of oxygen. Again, Hakkekkyuu U-1146 was a white Blood Cell whose task was to fight against any foreign bacteria and eliminate them.

There were also cute little platelets that did their job to repair the body wherever needed. The illustrator represented them as construction workers. Thus, this anime presented all the cells of our body in their day-to-day activities and fighting various difficulties only to keep our bodies healthy.

What is the Release Date of Cells at Work Season 2?

Season 2 has already finished airing from January 9, 2021, to February 27, 2021.  8 episodes were in the season. Therefore, you can start watching Season 1 and watch Season 2 right after that and you don’t have to wait at the cliffhanger. And in the meantime, wait for the Cells at Work Season 3 Release Date though there is no official announcement still now.

Will there be Cells at Work Season 3?

Well, there isn’t any official announcement about the next season. But, around 30 volumes have been published so far. And only a few have been animated yet. So, I am sure there will be a Season 3.

Now, I want to tell you about the bonus spin-off season that was released this year from studio LIDENFILMS. This is a sub-story different from the main one. In Cells at work! CODE BLACK! cells were fighting constantly in the human body to help it regain the lost health.

In this body, the cells were facing disastrous situations to fight foreign harmful germs and diseases. Thus they had a really hard time. Many cells lost their life to fulfill their work as well. However, to know what happened to the deteriorating body, watch the anime right now.

Thank me later but watch these amazing animes including Kakegurui Season 3 or Oregairu Season 3 while waiting for Cells at Work Season 3. 

Season 2 started with Hakkekkyuu U-1146 killing a cute but harmful pathogen. Although his fellow workers thought he was taking a rest somewhere that was not the case at all. Cells couldn’t take a rest for more than a few moments as they had a lot to learn and train to make themselves stronger.

Mostly, season 2 was full of adventure and taught us many things about important cells and their work.

Season 2 was quite famous right after the release. On MyAnimeList the season ranked 2306 and was given 7.31 stars by 43,525 users.
