The manga has inspired several spinoff series such as Hataraku Saikin (Bacteria at Work), Hatarakanai Saibō (Cells That Don’t Work), Hataraku Saibō Friend, and Hataraku Kesshōban-chan (Platelets at Work). The first television anime adaptation of the manga premiered last July.
The manga and anime Cells at Work! showed you what happens when a young, healthy body gets in trouble… but what if the body wasn’t so young, and was never very healthy?
This year’s combined 36th and 37th issue of Kodansha’s Morning magazine revealed on Thursday that Shigemitsu Harada and Issei Hatsuyoshi’s Cells at Work! Code Black (Hataraku Saibō BLACK) spinoff manga will go on hiatus starting from the next issue, and will return in the magazine’s 45th issue on October 10.
Harada and Hatsuyoshi launched the manga in Morning and the Weekly D Morning digital manga magazine in June 2018.
