This is a story about you. A tale about the inside of your body... According to a new study, the human body consists of approximately 37 trillion cells. These cells are hard at work every day within a world that is your body. From the oxygen-carrying red blood cells to the bacteria-fighting white blood cells, get to know the unsung heroes and the drama that unfolds inside of you! It's the oddly relatable and interesting story that is the life of cells!

This anime tells the story of red blood cell AE3803, Red blood cell U-1146, and many other cells all working together to keep your body safe.

This anime will completely change the way you view your cells, and how you live your daily life. It will tell you stories of all the cells as they help to heal you, and to protect you from germs, all the while teaching you about how your body works, and entertaining you with adorable and unique characters, all with their own charm.

I am fully enjoying this rather unique anime and look forward to its future episodes.

Before you say this anime doesn't deserve a 10, shut up, this is a preliminary review, let me have this pls.

Best way I can describe this beautiful anime is Inside Out meets One Punch Man, which to me instantly spells jackpot.

You see, there's two things in this world I adore. The first one is anthropomorphic animals/objects/things. The second one is Biology jokes and references or Science jokes in general. This show covers both.

From the cute concave hat of Erythrocytes to the "KILL" spelling hats of CTLs (Literally called Killer T Cells), the attention to detail is astonishing. That's basically the main reason I love this read more
