Cells at Work! CODE BLACK! Episode 10 Spoilers
In episode 9, the body’s condition continues to deteriorate. On his oxygen run, AA2153 discovers that there is a ringworm infection in the testes, and the sperm count has severely dropped. He later is told that the number of red blood cells also has fallen. He also learns that U-1196 can’t find any of the other white blood cells. The pressure of AA2153’s work finally seems to get to him. After one of the newbies that he is supposed to mentor on their first day makes an error during delivery, AA2153 takes oxygen in his stead to the feet. AC1677 accompanies him. They find out a part of the place has developed Athlete’s foot.
U-1196 arrives, and she and two other neutrophils put up a brave fight, but the ringworms come close to overwhelm them because of their (ringworms) sheer number. Fortunately, the body kills the infection with Butenafine Hydrochloride in time. As there is evidently a shortage of white blood cells, U-1196 and her two colleagues are sent to deal with ringworm infections in other parts of the body, despite their evident fatigue.
AA2153, who is close to total exhaustion himself, gets inspired to work even diligently watching U-1196. This is when AC1677 steps in and tells his friend that it’s alright to slack off sometimes. As the title indicates, the body might have to deal with a stomach ulcer in episode 10.
