Cells at Work! is an anime series from Tokyo MX that teaches viewers about the human body through a fun and engaging story. The show features a talented cast of voice actors including Kana Hanazawa, Tomoaki Maeno, Daisuke Ono, Kikuko Inoue, Maria Naganawa, Takahiro Sakurai, Saori Hayami, Nobuhiko Okamoto, Yuichi Nakamura, Shoya Chiba, M?A?O, Ayako Kawasumi, Aya Endo, Hiroyuki Yoshino, and Mamiko Noto.

The premise of Cells at Work! is simple yet brilliant - the human body is represented as a bustling city, with every cell and organism being a worker or resident. The red blood cells are portrayed as cute and clumsy girls that tirelessly deliver oxygen and nutrients throughout the city, while the white blood cells are the brave protectors that fight against harmful invaders like bacteria and viruses.

The main character of the show is a red blood cell named AE3803, who is voiced by Kana Hanazawa. She is young and inexperienced, often getting lost on her deliveries and causing trouble for her co-workers. However, her kind heart and determination to do her best make her a lovable protagonist that viewers can root for.

The other main character is a white blood cell named U-1146, who is voiced by Tomoaki Maeno. He is a stoic and serious fighter that always puts his duty ahead of personal feelings. Despite this, he develops a soft spot for AE3803 and often comes to her aid when she gets into trouble.

Throughout the series, viewers will learn about various parts of the body and how they function. For example, in one episode, the cells must fight against a food allergy by identifying and eliminating the culprit. In another episode, they must deal with a mosquito bite and prevent the spread of malaria. The show does an excellent job of making science fun and accessible to all ages.

One notable aspect of Cells at Work! is the incredible animation. The cells and organisms are all beautifully designed and animated, bringing the human body to life in a way that is both creative and accurate. The action scenes are thrilling and intense, and the humor is clever and witty. The show also features a great soundtrack that enhances the mood and atmosphere of each scene.

Overall, Cells at Work! is a fantastic anime series that is both educational and entertaining. The show teaches viewers about the human body in a fun and engaging way, and the characters are lovable and memorable. If you're looking for a show that is both entertaining and informative, this is definitely one to check out.
