Cells at Work! White Brigade Vol. 1 is part of a larger series, Cells at Work! This is the second of the series I have read, and it is such a charming way of teaching people more about their bodies. Thanks to Tetsuji Kanie and all of the others who have participated in its creation.

The white blood cells are the unsung heroes of our bodies. Or rather, they were unsung. But now Cells at Work! White Brigade Vol. 1 is here to lay down the praise these hard-working blood cells deserve.

Dive into a volume that covers all sorts of details surrounding neutrophils and their daily tasks! These charming fellows aren’t afraid to lay down their life for the sake of the group.

Okay, so I’ll admit it: I was utterly charmed by Cells at Work! White Brigade Vol. 1. The neutrophils are, dare I say it, adorable! There is something very endearing about this crew, thanks in part to the addition of a new recruit learning the ropes.

While this crew has a lot of hard work, you can still tell that they have a lot of fun. I think that is the reason why I ended up enjoying this particular volume so much (I enjoyed it so much more than Neo Bacteria! – sorry, not sorry).

I haven’t read the rest of the series available yet, so I can’t comment on how it compares to the larger whole. What I can say is that Cells at Work! White Brigade Vol. 1 was a ton of (informative) fun.

Thanks to Kodansha Comics and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
