It is Red Blood Cell AA2153’s first day at work. Cheerful and optimist, he goes to work genuinely thinking that he will actively contribute to the betterment of the body. However, he soon learns that his workplace is in horrible shape. The Red Blood Cells are forbidden from taking any break, and this has made them frustrated and angry.
