It has been a long time since I finished a weekly review here. Hopefully there will be more to come, both in terms of me finishing reviews and more Cells at Work. Either way, I am glad I was able to finish a series here and one I was able to have fun with along the way. While I did have some issues here and there, my overall enjoyment did not fade. Either way, let’s get started one last time.

The Plot:

So, continuing where the last episode left off, White is failing to find any blood cells. After a short amount of time, he finds one, and one that saw all the events. A hole opened up and some undetermined amount was thrown out of the body. He begins to panic knowing that the body could die soon due to the lack of red blood cells.

Back to Red, well, everything is going south real quick. Cells aren’t getting enough oxygen and there are just too few red blood cells to make deliveries.  But her and Kouhai push through. Of course more dangers arise as the rise of blood pressure causes a more to die right in front of their eyes. But Red stays calm.

The temperature starts to drop. Kouhai wishes to give up, knowing that if the body loses two-thirds of the blood there is no way the body could survive. All hope seems lost, and she tells Red she does not need to keep the act up any more. But Red refuses, she wants to deliver blood until her final moments, it is her job.

But, she soon collapses. All hope seems lost. She wakes up to see a lot of new Red Blood Cells. Thus, the new red blood cells are able to help save the day. It turns out they were part of a blood transfusion.

Anyway, with the crisis averted. Kouhai thanks Red for what she was able to learn from her.

Life then returns to normal to end off the series.

Overall Thoughts:

Okay, I know I always mention this, but I like how it is outside the human body. I like the concept of blood transfusion. It is nice to see those concepts. Plus, how the new Red Blood Cells were talking how that even in a new body they still have a job to do.

Anyway, while I am glad there was no real monster in the final episode, it did not stop the character development, drama, and everything it was trying to achieve. It served as a great follow-up to the previous episode and this arc served as a great stopping point.

Now, I don’t have much to say, at least about this final episode. So, as a series, it felt like this was the case a lot of the time. It felt as though I could have easily done this series in two episode reviews. Between the monster of the week situations and sometimes the plot, it did feel light at times. But, at the same time, not so much. There was so much variety, from drama, to action, and more. No matter what the show aimed to do one thing regardless, teach about the human body and various ways to protects itself, and it did just that in an interesting way. Sure there were times when the info dumping became a little too much, but other times, not so much. Either way this show was fun. I certainly would not mind more in the future, but at the same time, I certainly do not mind with what was given to us.

Overall Score: A-

Overall Enjoyment 95/100

With this being the final episode, next time I will be doing things differently. I am not going to do reviews weekly, instead covering two episodes. Now, for what show that is, well it is sort of a secret, since even I don’t know what it is. Either way, I hope you enjoyed this series and enjoy whatever series I cover next here.

As always feel free to comment your thoughts on the series. Just be mindful of spoilers.


As always I hope you enjoyed.

Anime Corps has plenty of other things from reviews, editorials, and more to check out, all from other writers.

I am mostly the editor here, but only my personal blog, The Reviewer’s Corner, I have more weekly reviews and a list series. That is here.

Until next time.
