A pretty interesting take on a somewhat unique concept. I've known about the manga for awhile but never gotten around to giving it a shot, so the anime was a good excuse. The first episode certainly proved a good watch and definitely worth keeping track of this season.

Thoughts?

That was pretty fun. Not a whole lot of depth but it was well animated. Will probably give it half a dozen episodes to see if anything bigger gets setup.

This was kinda neat - I think the most interesting thing about it is the design for the interior of the body, the way they've designed the cells' world has that quirky, Heath Robinson machine look going on. If someone had told me beforehand that this was a David Pro show, I think I might have been more hype for it though.

Seen a few comparisons to Osmosis Jones, but having never seen that film, what sprang to my mind was this thing:

Really enjoyed the first episode, I could see this making my top 5 series of this season. The animation was really well done and the platelets blocking the road were very cute.

This will probably win the season because people like the platelets, who am I to blame them though? The road blocking scene gave me diabetes. It's far more intentionally comic than I thought it would be, but I do think there's a very large plot hole, the red blood girl doesn't know where the lungs are, but where did she get the oxygen? That only comes from one place!

It comes from outside the human body and is distributed by the the red blood cells to other parts such as the brain. The red blood cells then remove carbon dioxide and take it back to the lungs to be exhaled. The point was that they have to travel all over the place and have not necessarily been there before (especially considering they only last about 100 days).

I really liked this episode. Quite educational, but not overly. I saw a video by an AniTuber who said the colours really help in the anime to tell who's who and what's going on compared to the manga, but it loses a bit of the more in depth stuff.

So when she delivers the oxygen right at the start she didn't necessarily get it from the lungs? BUT the CO2 she was trying to get to there HAS to go to the lungs?

The Platelets are so kawaii!
