†Cells at work!‘ is a much-loved anime series in the genre of biology and comedy, first released in the summer of 2018. The series, which has attracted great interest with its anime on many platforms, is actually based on the manga series with the same name, written by Akane Shimizu. and illustrated by him. Both seasons of the series, which aired for a total of two seasons, were created by David Production† We also know the studio when it comes to breaking records firepower anime adaptation. The anime, which took place on many platforms such as crunchy rolls† Funimationand Netflix, reached many viewers worldwide. The second season of the anime aired on many local Japanese channels (Tokyo MX, GYT, ytv, BS11, MBS, TV Aichi, HBC, RKB) between January 9, 2021 and February 27, 2021. Cells at Work! The question is whether the main anime series of the series, which will hit the screens with the spin-off anime called Code Black’, is a third season†
What is the storyline of the anime?
The story takes place in the human body. 37.2 trillion cells working to keep the human body they live in healthy are trying to protect their homes from danger. Every day these cells, which fight the invasion of pathogenic cells such as germs and bacteria, tell us a different story because they withstand all difficulties.
AE3803, one of our main characters, is a small red blood cell that has just started its work. On the other hand, U-1146 is a powerful white blood cell that is part of the immune system. While AE3803 is responsible for transporting products such as oxygen and nutrients, U-1146 is responsible for eliminating threats in blood vessels. As the story unfolds, things will not go well and events will diversify.
Will there be a third season of ‘Cells at Work!’?
The second season of the main anime series has just hit the screens, and there is no renewal for a third season yet. David Production or his broadcasters have not yet mentioned a new season. It can sometimes take years to see a new season of anime. We can see this in about three years between the first season and the second season. When some of the key factors are considered, it is possible to speculate about a new season of the anime.
Manga status of the anime
As we said at the beginning of the article, Cells at work is based on a manga series like many anime. The manga is written and illustrated by Akane Shimizu and published by Kodansha. It is also possible to follow the manga series published in English by Kodansha USA. The manga series published in Monthly Shonen Sirius since January 2015 consists of a total of 6 parts. The manga ends with the final volume released on January 26, 2021.
While there are spin-off manga series, the main anime series follows the main manga series written by Akane Shimizu. Most of the manga, which has a total of 6 parts and 30 chapters, has been adapted to anime. In the first season of the anime, the first 18 chapters were adapted and up to the 25th chapter in the second season. There are only 5 chapters left. In terms of source material adequacy, a second season seems pretty unlikely.
BluRay sales, popularity, other factors, etc.
Disc sales are very valuable to see a new season of anime. The anime, which sold an average of 8,000 discs in its first season, exceeded expectations. In addition, broadcasting rights were bought by many platforms. The overall popularity rating of the anime is 88.8%, and from this perspective there is no barrier to seeing another season financially. There is also no denying that the anime made a satisfying profit in its two aired seasons.
‘Cells at work!’ Season 3 release date predictions
The fact that the anime’s main manga series is now complete and won’t offer enough stock footage reduces the possibility of seeing a new season. For the anime to have a new season, either the spin-off series must be used as source material, or the main manga series must somehow continue again. However, neither seems possible. The anime will continue with the spin-off anime series rather than a new season as the brand continues to be popular. The first anime adaptation of the spin-off series was with “Cells at work! Code Black† For now, we recommend Code Black for those following the main sequence. We think we’ll be able to see anime adaptations of other spin-off series in the future.
