The ‘Cells at Work!’ Stage Cast Look Right Out of the Anime

Cells at Work! has become a cultural phenomenon in Japan! The edutainment series personifies your body’s cells and the various threats it combats to keep you healthy. Its blend of real-world education, humor, and action makes it accessible to everyone — plus actual scientists approve of it!

Cells at Work!

Akane Shimizu launched the manga in 2015, which was adapted into an anime earlier this year by David Production.

The newest Cells at Work! project is a stage play that will run at Tokyo’s Theatre 1010 starting on November 16. To build hype, the staff released photos of the cast in full costumes — and they look right out of the manga!
