Osmosis Jones: The Anime
“Cells at Work! Is a comedy anime that follows the adventures of Red Blood Cell, who is constantly having trouble with orienting herself inside the human body.”
“She frequently comes into contact with bacteria and is constantly saved by one particular White Blood Cell.
Take this anime at face value; it’s charming, cute, and fairly informative. I’ve found myself learning a few things about the functions of blood cells, bacteria, and platelets. The anime presents scientific data about the bacterium and other cells, in a manner that is easy to digest and isn’t boring.
Red Blood Cell isn’t a ground-breaking MC, but she’s quirky and adds a nice bit of comedy to a surprisingly bloody show.”
