Hataraku Saibou Season 2 Episode 6 Spoilers
In episode 5, NK Cell overhears Ordinary Cell’s angry outburst about Immune Cells and confronts him. Fortunately, U-1146 is there to calm her down. It turns out that the lactic acid bacterium that went down the storm drain has been rescued by Dendritic Cell. While Ordinary Cell is looking for the missing bacterium, the small intestine gets invaded by mutating the influenza virus, against whom immune cells prove ineffective.
Dendritic Cell transforms by intaking Polysaccharides, which are produced by the lactic acid bacterium. He then begins producing Cytokines. This is hilariously depicted as Dendritic Cell showing immune cells their embarrassing photos. Their powers get activated, and they wipe out the viruses and the infected cells. Afterward, NK Cell tells U-1146 that the Cancer Cell has come back. In episode 6, the immune cell might fight against harmful bacteria in the large intestine. Here is the trailer for the next episode.
