Monocyte is a badass, just a straightforward type of badass.

It looks like bacteria went to attack Red Cells but found little luck. It's not until one of the other Big Bad Antigens came into the picture that things looked more troubling. Pretty crazy episode tbh.

An army of Monocyte is aso pretty intimidating lol. Same with the Killer T Cells. Also, really cute to see the platelets again!

Platelets as cute as ever.

Rc cell really is unlucky to encounter such a germ though. But she had quite the unusual savior. Staphylococcus's transformation was quite the surprise. They sure learned from last time and their tactics this time sure were effective. They sure had a huge family tree though. The mono's entrance and the revelations about their identities was quite unexpected. They really made the cleaning up look easy though. Macrothage sure is a talented cell though. An entertaining and action packed episode.

Staphylococcus aureus may be a bacteria who would kill me having the chance, but damn, she's strangely hot (how much I have degenerated?). Still was funny how the macrophages destroyed her. Almost felt pity for her.

Macrophages are awesome too. A deadly elite squad of beautiful onee-san maids. The explanation of the narrator towards the end of the episode regarding they're role made me even more grateful to have them in my body. Many, many thanks for keeping me alive everyday, macrophages.

The original scenes they added (RBC doing her job, the expanded role of the platelets...) were enjoyable. Managed to extend the episode without making it dragged out. Hell, in fact, the whole episode felt too short.

Also, yay, they are going to adapt chapter 6 next week. I fear they would skip it.

Idk it feels like the same shit is happening every episode. It's fun, but I think more could be done with this idea.

Loved getting some more Macrophage action. But something felt really off about this episode. The art felt off sometimes and especially in the short section today before the opening, there was a ton of reused scenes and animations and awkward headshot animations. I know I've seen a few reused animations in past episodes usually only 1 or 2, but there was a bunch for this episode.

This episode felt like it went back to the same, old direction and now it's really getting repetitive. The action was good but I'm tired of the same thing over and over again.

dunno but im not feeling it this time. Not that it was bad but ... that one was a little bit too much of the same things this time. at least the last few episodes changed things up a little bit.

i want to say i felt this week episode is like leftovers from the episode where the platelets save the day making it the worst episode so far but still being souch a great anime. I hope the finals 3 episodes can show us more interestings things about the human body and the cells...

well, at least i can see a lot of Macrophages here, i dont mind. and a plenty amount of Platelets screentime is always acceptable in any situation

and looking at the adapted chapter, they’re really went too far.

EP 1 to EP 10 adapted chapter in order: ch1-ch4-ch3-ch5-ch2-ch7-ch8&9-ch10-ch12-ch15 and then next week suddenly ch6

and im here still waiting for Hypovolemic Shock before the series ends:(

I think they "ran out of budget" or "had production issues" quite a few times this episode.
Not sure if anyone noticed the stick figures...??

That scene early in the episode with white blood cell / neutrophil had me cracking up.
Finding out that Macrophages are the same as Monocytes.... blood cell's expression says enough. That was interesting.

The amount of info made up for the nosedive the animation made.
Hopefully they're back in full force next week.

Somehow this episode wasn't as exciting as the others to me, but it was still nice! It was a bit shocking that WBC wasn't able to get to RBC on time to save her this time, but fortunately someone else was there to save her, and the day this time. Macrophages are really cool!

In fact, the same facts, with some agents changed, the same way it happens inside our bodies. Life, and its maintenance, is the repetition of uncountable cycles.

rak-nid said:, but...more could be done with this idea.

I agree but, at the same time, I recognize the genius behind the creation and the fact it is not perfect but more than good enough.

A two-side job... nice cover of identity X3 Macrophage is amazing!

I know this anime have been using reused scenes and animations, specially the beginning of every episode but this one is just wayyyy to much.
I think they have to rush to complete the episodes every week and quality is dropping. Was still good but there was not much "animation" was more like "frames"/stop images.

I don't want them to rush this series is been so great ):

Monocyte is the Pyro...

Monocyte on the inside, Macrophage on the outside!

This episode did use some previous scenes, and I think there was much less dialogue than usual because it felt like it was nothing but action and the episode went by pretty quickly. Not bad. We can always have more Macrophages in the show. ^_^

I'm happy to see platelets interact with with RBC and be featured in the background doing lots of super adorable things. We need a Platelet-ONLY episode in the future.

Kind of sucked to see the enemy again. I want them to deal with a different strain of bacteria or virus this time. We already met cancer cell. I want them to introduce different disease.

Macrophage/Monocyte is so badass. She's a CILF.

I really love Macrophages. They're hilarious.

The white blood cell, who appeared with food in his mouth, was super cute!!

When our Red Blood Cell did everything on her own, I felt like a proud older brother. So, now I am wondering if you can be the older brother of RBCs.

Haha, another nice eps, I really love to hear Macrophage's voice onee-san for me. Yeah Macrophage did many jobs inside our body that's what I learn in my medical school subject and with this anime makes me more interested in them hahaha. What I learn in this anime is everybody did their own job with smile and full of energy, always did their best, that's what we need to learn for our own lives.

The episode had a few scenes where the quality drops of animation and frames were apparent, but despite that, it was still enjoyable. =)

I wanted more Platelet scenes for this episode and thankfully, we were treated to more scenes with them. My favourite one was with them taking a picture with the WBC cardboard cut-out in the nasal area, which was really cute. =3

The Staphylococcus Aureus makes its return with a vengeance for her cousins. Her transformation scene was amusing, but thankfully, the Monocytes/Macrophages came in, wielding maces, hammers, axes and such and went to town with those bastard germs.

The heatstroke episode next week looks to be promising.I'm hoping the inconsistencies of the production quality will be ironed out for next time. =)

We get the see the platelets getting poked on thier cute cheeks once again!

Also, I actully learned something. I didn't knew Macrophages are Monocyte's in disguise. Red Blood Cell-chan her expression also says enough. :-D

I also learned a thing of two about Staphylococcus aureus, so I can't complain for this episode.

That's not quite true, Monocyte will turn into Macrophages in the right circumstance, they also will sometimes turn into Dendritic cells. And they don't change back into Macrophages.

The stick figures show up in the manga as well, so there is precedent for that.

I thought last week was much more eivdent as a "budget saver" than this one in terms of animation quality, but this one did have a lot of recycled art, retreads, and flashbacks. Hopefully the production quality picks back up for the final episodes. Not that I'm complaining, still really enjoying the show.

Regarding the episode itself, I wish they had explained WHY monocyte / macrophage transforms. Why does Macrophage need a biohazard suit when outside?

Another fantastic episode!
Who would have thought that the badass Monocytes become even more badass by transforming into Macrophages, interesting information.

Probably you are the unluckiest red blood cell ever xD
It was so funny to see that Monocyte to change vessels xD

Global warming? hahaha next episode will be great :D

Yes!! Macrophages focused episode!!

It wasn't the most memorable episode but it was still good. Gladly, I could appreciate some more cute moments involving the little Platelests >.< and of course, more Macrophage screentime is always welcome.

It was really nice to see them in action fighting against Staphylococcus aureus and saving the poor WBCs.

Time for Macrophage it seems!! It was a decent episode tho, but that made White Cells look very useless against those annoying Staphylococcus...

Also I loved the way Macropages fight, always smiling but executing with those axes and hammers xDDD

Can't wait more to see another episode of Cancerous Cells!!! >_>
