It’s called COVID-19, and it has caused chaos all over the world, Now, the anime has launched a new stay-at-home campaign which features the characters fighting COVID-19. Mangaka Akane Shimizu is also supporting the campaign, and is also responsible for illustrating the campaign’s new visual:
Shimizu also wrote a message for fans, saying that your cells are fighting viruses inside to protect you. And now, it’s your turn to protect the people around you by staying at home. It also reminds people to wear a mask, wash their hands and their mouths frequently.
A second season has already been confirmed for Shimizu’s hit manga. Null & Peta’s Hirofumi Ogura will be the new director, with David Production returning to animate the series.
