A spin-off from the original series Cells at Work!, Cells at Work! Code Black is airing back-to-back with its mother series produced and animated by Liden Films and is based on the original shōnen manga series of the same name created by Shigemitsu Harada and Ikuta Hatsuya.
Cells at Work! Code Black follows the story of the cells inside a human and they are responsible for maintaining the life and health of the person as they go up with a seemingly unending war against bodily irritants such as sleep deprivation, alcohol, stress, and smoking.
In particular, Cells at Work! Code Black focuses on Red Blood Cell AA2153 who has to learn quickly how to deliver oxygen throughout the body whilst collecting carbon dioxide despite the dangerous conditions because they fall short in staff. White Blood Cell U-1196, on the other hand, contributes to dealing with germs and viruses in life-threatening situations.
Even when they question if their task is worth it as they are undermanned and they exert more sacrifices than they should, they continue to work together with all their efforts especially when the crisis arrives to keep the body healthy.
Cells at Work! Code Black Season 1 has 13 episodes all in all and has just aired its ninth episode titled Calamity, Athlete's Foot, and Meaning of Work. Given the success of both Cells at Work! And Cells at Work! Code Black to date, it would be no surprise if the series spin-off will be given a second season.
