Hataraku Saibou Season 2 Episode 7 Spoilers
In episode 6, Ordinary Cell accompanies NK Cell and U-1146 to the large intestine. He notices that both immune cells have suddenly become more somber. Because of the constant invasion from harmful bacteria, the large intestine is brimming with toxic gas. While delivering oxygen, AE3803 discovers that the platelets are on a large-intestine tour and joins them. Ordinary Cell, NK Cell, and U-1146 come across the Killer Cells. The main Killer Cell, who has now become a Memory T Cell, joins the other two immune cells in their search for Cancer Cell.
U-1146 parts ways with Ordinary Cell, telling his new friend that the latter must go alone and get the last lactic acid bacterium to where it is supposed to be. A massive onslaught of Bacteria manages to break through the barrier that Intestinal Epithelial Cell and Goblet Cell recently repaired, forcing Ordinary Cell and others to evacuate the area frantically. Elsewhere, AE3803 tries to lead the platelets to safety.
The three immune cells finally manage to locate what they believe to be Cancer Cell. But after killing it, they discover that it’s a decoy. The episode ends as the real Cancer Cell shows up and easily defeats the three immune cells. Episode 7 will be about how the body deals with Cancer Cell a second time.
