Summer 2018 Grab Bag Week 6: Hataraku Saibou

It was only a matter of time before cancer showed up in this series. I was actually quite curious to see how it would get portrayed, since they've already done zombie cells to show cells turned against the host. But that's not the main focus of the episode, so we'll leave that for later. The main story of the episode was a flashback to Red Blood Cell's training, which was just generally nice for cute fluff.

Yeesh, Red Blood Cell's poor sense of direction makes me wonder how she eventually graduated. But then again, it's the human body, so it's probably not too surprising that some...not great cells make it through the natural processes.

You know, I'm actually somewhat ambivalent about establishing a previous connection between Red Blood Cell and White Blood Cell. I think the two are fine together with what we've seen so far, and this only falls further into the idea that relationships need to be built on some past relationship.

Excellent use of platelets.

I like the portrayal of the cancer cell so far. It was a nice misdirection to begin with, and the idea that cancer cell is a traitor disguised as a normal cell hints at the complexities involved with treating cancer. It's pretty nice.
