Via Comic Natalie: Akane Shimizu’s ““Hataraku Saibou!!” and its spin-off “Hataraku Saibou! BLACK” by Haruyuki Yoshida will air in an hour-long block starting 9th January 2021 on Tokyo MX and other related stations.

“Hataraku Saibou!” (“Cells at Work!”) is a hit manga series depicting the cells of the human body as anthropomorphic workers doing their best in their daily tasks; the whimsical molecular comedy has won the hearts of many for its scientific accuracy as well as its lovable characters.

“Hataraku Saibou! BLACK” on the other hand is an official spin-off penned that shows a much darker take on the series as the cells also have to deal with alcohol, smoking, and stress that threatens to overwhelm the body they live in.

With that, we’d like to remind everyone to stay at home, wash your hands often, and wear a mask when you go outside!
