The latest issue of Nakayoshi, the Kodansha monthly mainly focused on shojo manga, confirmed that Cells at Work !: Bacteria!, the longest running spin-off of Shimizu's magna opera, will end definitively on July 3rd. A seventh and final volume will be published the following month, more precisely on August 6, 2020.
The manga – written and drawn by Haruyuki Yoshida – began serialization on the pages of the aforementioned monthly in April 2017, and the first official volume was distributed on February 9 of the following year. Despite fluctuating expectations, the work managed to convince the Japanese public, and the sixth volume was published on 9 December.
Kodansha describes the synopsis of the spin-off as follows: "Cells are not the only organisms that live in our body! Every day a war breaks out in our intestine between good bacteria, bad bacteria and pathogens, without considering all the other invaders! A struggle for supremacy comes to life in our intestines and we can only ask ourselves: who will be the winner?".
