What’s the show? Cells At Work!, Episode 10.
So what happens in this episode? More of the same really, except I felt even though there were repetitive elements this one felt really cohesive and it’s kind of hard to put my finger on why exactly—I think if you wanted the perfect example of everything this show does well in a single episode this’d be the one to pick!
Why do I get the feeling this is going to fall into one of those ‘difficult to review’ categories? So difficult! Like what am I supposed to talk about? Gratuitous Platelet service? There’s only so many synonyms for ‘cute’ that I can bust out of my thesaurus!
Well is there anything unique or different about this episode that caught your eye? Well we ~almost~ had a new character (and I mean ‘technically’ they still are) in the form of the yellow jump-suited Cell’s called Monocyte. I loved how weird and quirky the particular Monocyte AE3803 ended up following but as it turned out Monocytes turn into Macrophages when they leave the cell walls.
Oh well that’s interesting! Yeah it was a fun little twist, but any excuse to get the Macrophages kicking butt—though it was kinda odd/curious that the voiceover felt the need to all but compare them to mothers, but I mean I guess a Macrophage is as close as human bodies have to a motherly-type Cell, wonder if that means people who think Macrophage is attractive have an Oedipus complex?
Well do you? Do I what? Find Macrophage attractive? Uh, duh—she’s a sexy anime lady! Oh I see what you’re trying to do, very funny…
So thoughts overall, if you can even muster enough words to make another paragraph? I saw a lot of positive remarks about this episode on Twitter after it aired and it’s easy to see why. While it would have been fun to be a contrarian and say something opposing the fact of the matter is this is just prime Cells At Work that pushes all the requisite buttons. Plenty of adventure, plenty of fun, plenty of laughs, plenty of bloody action and ~almost~ enough Platelets, because let’s face it you can’t ever have enough Platelets!
