Cells at work

“Working cells” is a cell-personified fantasy depicting the inexperienced activities of the body cells centred on red blood cells and white blood cells. 

It has been serialized in “Monthly Shonen Sirius” since 2015, and the total number of series, including spin-off works, has exceeded 3.5 million. In 2018, it also became a TV anime.

This work, which is drawn from a novel perspective on the human body, which is the most familiar theme, has gained the support of a wide range of people, from children to adults, and has earned high praise from medical professionals. 

It has become a hot topic in many corporate tie-up projects.

In this exhibition, the largest ever, we will approach the new appeal of “Working Cells” by displaying about 150 precious manga and original illustrations in colour.

At the venue, there will also be other productions such as a photo spot where you can enjoy the work world more. Products unique to the original painting exhibition and pre-sale goods are also handled.

The “Working Cell Genga” Exhibition will be held from October 9th to October 22nd at Matsuya Ginza 8th Floor Event Square. Details of the Aichi venue will be announced later.

The new performance of “Cells at Work Manga”, the stage version of “Working Cell”, has been decided. The title will be “Body Life Play” by Working Cell ”II” and will be performed at Theater 1010 from September 27th to October 6th.

“Working Cell” is based on a manga serialized by Kei Shimizu in “Monthly Shonen Sirius”. It is a story of anthropomorphic cells that are said to have about 37 trillion cells in the human body.

It was made into a TV animation in 2018, and the production of the second phase has also been decided. The stage version was staged in the fall of 2018 as “Internal Life Play: Cells at Work Manga” and was well received.

As in the previous work, “In-vivo drama”, “Working Cells” looks at the entire theatre, including the stage and audience seats, as “in the body”, and expresses the battle scenes of cell teams and bacteria/viruses, and changes that occur in the body. 

It is important to watch a live-action drama where the audience and the cast come together.

The role of white blood cells (neutrophils) is in charge of Rin Okumura of the stage “Blue Exorcist” series, and Satoshi Kitamura, who has representative works such as the role of Yakuken Toshiro in the stage/movie “Touken Ranbu”. 

The role of erythrocytes is Umino Kawamura, who plays the role of Yuka Kanno in the TV drama “Hana nochi Hare -Hanao Next Season”.
