Cells at Work! anime made everyone a fan of cute cells in our body and helped us to take better care of ourselves.

The staff describes the story:
A mysterious cell wearing a stylish hat appears before the regular cells, who are bored with just the same (cell division) work over and over again, every day. This mysterious cell lures the regular cells into a mischievous scheme against White Blood Cell and Killer T Cell. The regular cells enjoy working out their every day, pent-up frustration. But, just who exactly is this cell wearing a stylish hat?
Adding to the episode, a game for the series has also been announced. It is called, Itsudemo Hataraku Saibō (Always Cells at Work), and it is available for both iOS and Android devices.

Here is how the story of the regular anime/manga is described as follows—
The average human body contains about 60 trillion cells, and each of them has work to do! But when you get injured, viruses or bacteria invade, or when an allergic reaction flares up, everyone from the silent but deadly white blood cells to the brainy neurons has to work together to get through the crisis!
