In the middle of work, she meets a White Blood Cell that dispels the bacteria that manages to break into the body. The White Blood Cell then helps the Red Blood Cell who is still confused with her task.
The manga is first serialized in Monthly Shounen Sirius Magazine published by Kodansha, and has been collected into five tankoubon volumes. The first season of the TV anime adaptation by David Production aired in the summer of 2018. In Indonesia, the manga is published by m&c!.
