World War Sneeze – ‘Cells At Work!’ Episode 3 Review

World War Sneeze - An Anime QandA Review of 'Cells At Work!' Episode 3

What’s the show? Cells At Work!, Episode 3.

You said last week you were having trouble talking about the show because it’s just so consistently good? Is that still an issue with this episode? Yup! It may have been a mistake to review this show week-to-week. Not that there aren’t a lot of things going on in this episode, but it’s just not the kind of show that lends itself to discussion very well. It’s very much a show that’s so competent and confident in its execution that reviewing it feels kind of pointless.

Is he a Jojo reference?!

It’s putting you out of a job, huh? Hardly—I just don’t think any kind of review I could give would be that interesting that’s all.

So like most of your reviews then? Tch!

Slice and dice!

So what happens in the episode anyway, can’t very well leave this blank… The human body gets influenza, it’s visually expressed as a zombie invasion—meanwhile a naïve T-cell is caught up in the middle of it all and has to get the confidence to help his T-cell brethren in the fight against the infected horde. It’s all very well animated and cleverly introduces new concepts like Macrophage (who is kinda hot—but that’s an issue for my physiatrist to deal with) and also a lengthier introduction to Dendritic Cell who’s a particularly cool customer.

She can cut me up anytime… wait what?!

Right, anything else you wanted to add? Not enough Platelet’s in this episode! We get a brief moment of two of them cleaning up some leaves in Dendritic’s tree house but that’s not enough! We demand more Platelet’s! More Platelet’s! More Platelet’s!

Who’s this “we” you speak of? The Internet of course! The Internet has gone Platelet crazy and can you blame them?! They’re just about the cutest thing in the world!

As if I wasn’t going to include the Platelet’s tiny appearance!

Right, maybe it’s a good thing these reviews aren’t too long… between ogling Red Blood Cell’s and your unhealthy obsession with Platelet’s your liable to be committed! I don’t care! All I want is for the next episode to have more Cute Cells Doing Cute Things!

  1. We want more platelets! Totally agree 😊I do have to say that I wonder how long we are going to be enjoying this series though: basically the story is pretty much the same every week. But when it’s executed this well, I guess we are not allowed to complain much 😊

    • I don’t mind so much, I’ve watched much worse/boring shows for a heck of a lot more episodes than this show will have, I’m happy to see it through–even if every episode is more or less the same!

  2. I’m with you. Cute Cells Doing Cute Things could be its own new genre. It certainly worked in episodes 1 and 2.

    • Spin off potential!

      • I think I’d actually watch a show of just the platelets doing their everyday thing (okay, I know that is so not what I normally watch but it would be kind of like How to Keep a Mummy – so stupidly adorable the lack of plot wouldn’t really be a problem).

  3. For as much as I love the platelets, I don’t want them to show up constantly and maybe saturate the show with cuteness. The longer they’re absent, the more we’ll enjoy them when they arrive. I think this show can thrive on its creativity and style alone.
