“Cells at Work! CODE BLACK” will be made into a TV anime in January 2021!

In this new spinoff of the hit manga Cells at Work!, a newbie Red Blood Cell is one of 37 trillion working to keep this body running. But something’s wrong! Stress hormones keep yelling at him to go faster. The blood vessels are crusted over with cholesterol. Ulcers, fatty liver, trouble (ahem) downstairs … It’s hard for a cell to keep working when every day is a CODE BLACK!

The manga and anime Cells at Work! showed you what happens when a young, healthy body gets in trouble … but what if the body wasn’t so young, and was never very healthy? This new take stars a fresh-faced Red Blood Cell and his friend, the buxom White Blood Cell, as they struggle to keep themselves and their world together through alcoholism, smoking, erectile dysfunction, athlete’s foot, gout … it’s literal body horror! Whoever this guy is, he’s lucky his cells can’t go on strike!

The ” Cells at Work! CODE BLACK ” TV anime broadcast will start in January 2021!

When I was little, I was weak and in the hospital all the time, so I was like a king who ruled the paediatric ward.
I want to work hard to beat the whip against this BLACK body I was born with.
See “Cells at Work! CODE BLACK”, please.

I haven’t even had a full physical exam yet, and I think I’ve been able to maintain my health with a large amount of supplements.
I work out a lot, so I’ll be okay!
We’re going to whip our bodies together and make it a BLACK work, so please help us out!

Narrator:Kenjirou Tsuda
I’ve been indulging to come across this one! I’m sure it is, and I’m BLACK and I’m going to be WHITE in this one!
Ah, the guidance of fate! Well… um… well, I’ll do my best to narrate!
Everyone in BLACK is destined to see it too!

WrittenShigemitsu Harada
I myself am over 40 and suffering from autonomic nervous system ataxia and hematuria with unknown causes. Thanks to this, I stopped smoking and started to review my life. I hope that the spread of this work will be a chance to save our bodies from the black environment. It’s not too late!

Animated! Thank you! I’m so thrilled! This one’s a brush! And if my belly grows fat these days, is that what we call “happy and fat”? I’ll do my best to keep up my health and work on my manuscript so that I can continue to make BLACK more exciting!

Director:Hideyo Yamamoto
How do we work and what value and meaning do we find in working? I will do my best to create an entertainment that gives us a chance to think about such things a little through the characters of this film who work in harsh conditions!

I’m sure this work will inspire a lot of different people to take an interest in what’s going on in their bodies. Ladies and gentlemen, let’s go for a health checkup! If you are in good health, please watch ” Cells at Work! CODE BLACK ” with a calm mind and if you are not in good health, please watch ” Cells at Work! CODE BLACK “.

Music:Yugo Kanno
As I passed the age of 40, I began to feel wobbles everywhere in my body. When I came across this work, I realized that my life was causing a lot of trouble for the cells.
At the very least, I’d like to bring healthy living and uplifting music to the cells!

It’s a battle for the lives of the cells against endless despair!
A story of courage for the hardworking people of the world.
