I was planning on publishing this one before my hiatus, but I wasn’t able to. So here we are, me reviewing one of the best animes last season, Hataraku Saibou.
I first got acquianted to this series when Digibro reviewed its first manga on his youtube channel last year. I got interested with its premise and artstyle, but I wasn’t able to check the manga out immediately. It was arround the time when the anime adaptation was announced then I remembered to check out the manga. LOL. The manga was really well written and made, it made me excited on how it would be adapted into anime. I’m so glad it was done really well.
Hataraku Saibou was an anime I didn’t expect that I needed.
I was once a medical student studying Medical Technology. Through those years of studying in that field, I gain alot of knowledge about the human body and other medical stuff. Now that I moved on from those days, I really thought I wouldn’t ever make use of those knowledge. Then here comes Hataraku Saibou.
The anime was a delightful to watch. From the story to the art, its clear that the mangaka knows alot of stuff about cells, their functions and everything about the human body. He/She was able to create something even a normal kid would like, understand and appreciate science more.
I really like how the story flowed. Even though the anime was abit episodic, there wasn’t a time I felt bored. It kept me hooked from the first episode to the last. I also love the characters. They definitely followed the important functions of each cell which made each one of the characters unique and their interactions amusing to watch. The art & animation was great as well, especially the character designs. They definitely added alot of flare to each of the characters. Though, I do wanna point out the bad animation on some parts of the anime. I noticed it around episode 4 (or 5) and beyond, where the use of CG became dormant. I can’t blame the studio, but I do hope they could edit the it on the BD.
Overall, this anime exceeded my expectations. I mean, I expected it to be a good one, but I didn’t expect it to be awesome. This series definitely warmed my med heart.
That is all. Thanks for reading.
