As we already know, Cells at Work anime is getting a seinen spin-off called Cells at Work: CODE BLACK. It’s an adaptation of a manga under the same name. We also know that it’s going to premiere on the same day as season 2 of the series. Not only that, but both episodes will air back to back on Japanese TV. The official Twitter account for the spin-off posted a new Cells at Work CODE BLACK trailer, and you can watch it below:
Synopsis for the spin-off is as follows:
Alcohol, smoking, and stress—in the body subjected to these irritants, the cells responsible for maintaining life seem to fight a war that never ends. Due to a severe shortage of workers, Red Blood Cell AA2153 has to quickly learn to deliver oxygen and collect carbon dioxide, even in dangerous conditions. Meanwhile, White Blood Cell U-1196 has to do her part by dealing with germs and viruses during life-threatening situations. In the midst of these crises, they have to work together to keep the body healthy, despite not knowing if their sacrifices will be worthwhile. Hataraku Saibou Black takes a different approach by showing the grittier side of the jobs our cells perform.
