Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshiya’s Cells at Work! Code Black manga might finally be getting an anime adaptation, but it looks like the end is near for the popular spin-off manga. The combines Issue #2 and 3 of Morning magazine unveiled that the series will end with the eight volume. It will hit the shelves on February 22, 2021.
Cells At Work! mangaka Akane Shimizu supervises the Cells At Work! Black manga. Meanwhile, Kodansha has released the series internationally as Cells at Work! Code Black. Here is how they describe its story:
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 second season for Cells At Work! premieres on January 9 at 23:30, or 11:30 pm on January 9. And exactly right after that premiere episode airs, Cells at Work! Code Black will then premiere on January 10 at midnight, 12:00 am.
As for the Cells At Work! Code Black anime, it will premiere right after the main anime’s second season. Its OP theme song will be “Hashire!” by POLYSICS, while Junya Enoki and Yoko Hikasa, who voice the main Red and White blood cells in the anime, will perform the ED song, “Ue o Mukaite Hakobou”.
