Cells At Work! is an interesting series that does a fairly good job of describing how the human body's immune system responds to various illnesses and injuries that effect the functionality of the human body.
The overall tone of this series is fairly lighthearted despite the fact that many of the episodes in this series depict the life and death struggles of various cells that are working hard to keep everyone alive. Currently new episodes of Cells At Work! are being made available on a sites like Funimation, Crunchyroll, and VRV.
However, as you might have noticed in the title of this article a new spinoff series to Cells At Work! has recently been released, and I have to say that I believe this series is one that you have to see. The first episode of Cells At Work! Code Black appears to start off with the same lighthearted tone of the original series, but after just a few minutes the it is made clear that this series will be telling stories that demonstrate how things like smoking, high cholesterol, and sleep deprivation can effect the human body's overall ability to fight diseases and transport nutrients to various locations throughout the human body.
This change in tone might not seem like much, but I feel that it has the potential to tell stories that viewers might find both entertaining, informative, and relatable. I mean sure it is interesting to see how the human body responds to an exterior threat, but it is an entirely different feeling to see how the human body responds when someone smokes a cigarette, drinks a beer, or fails to get enough sleep.
Just like the original Cells At Work! you can watch this series on Funimation, Crunchyroll, and VRV. Currently there is only a single episode available with new episodes scheduled to be released every week.
