Between this, the terrible text placement for the educational blurbs, and the odd localization choices (let's leave kouhai untranslated, but find some really awkward English alternative for "-chan"), this show had one of the worst simulsubs this season.

Still a very pleasant and extremely watchable show though, I will absolutely watch a second season if they make one.

There's enough material in the manga right now to make half a season I believe. It's also a lot more continuous rather than stand-alone episodes.

ASK ME ABOUT KISSING A GHOST

Black Chapter 11 (new volume? sequel? not sure how to put it) just dropped.

The decaying stress filled body is now healthy! Well, healthy enough that arteries aren't clogged, and delivering oxygen is now a walk in the park. Healthy enough that the White Blood Cells are able to manage and handle the amounts of bacteria.

Healthy enough for the person to give a blood transfusion to a completely different trainwreck of a body...

The sad thing is, that's the most noble thing that the Black body can do. Turn their life around then and give a blood donation to someone in a similar state of need. It just sucks for our main cast.

Well, stress induced balding is represented by a T-Killer Cell going nuts and attacking the follicle cells. So I assume it would be something similar.

That would be a malevolent doom aura appearing in a small section of a body as cancer and everything near it is cooked alive.

The aftermath could totally be drawn as looking like the aftermath of hiroshima or something to reference the damage caused by radiation.

It'll turn out that the man was an organ donor (unless that's not a thing in Japan) and the cells are taken along and put into a new body, one that's also dying.

Is actually worse.

They manage to save him from the heart attack and the scare is enough for the guy to clean up his act and become healthier but then he donates blood and Bobbie White Cell and the Red Cell MC are among those send to the other body. A body that is in worse condition.

From cardiac arrest, the body has a *slim* (we're talking close to 1% for best possible outcome) chance of recovery assuming a bystander nearby knows how to do proper CPR and there's a portable defibrilator nearby. I don't have my numbers on hand but there's an under ten minute window we have to get oxygen back to the brain, with a sliding scale of positive outcome to lovely outcome depending on how fast intervention occurs. In the past twenty years we've made huge progress in saving people who'd otherwise be dead using hypothermia treatments and coronary interventions, but I don't want to spoil too much of what will probably happen.

Organ donation rates in Japan are relatively low due to cultural values around bodily integrity and strict laws requiring the consent of both the donor and their family, but it does happen.

Two things, full on cardiac arrest is pretty much fatal, but given the condition of that body, the body itself probably interpreted it as "yup, we're dead". That or I'm an idiot.

2nd: whole blood still has WBCs, double red donation does not.

Honestly I'm having trouble imagining what a body that's meaningfully shittier than the one our characters already inhabit actually looks like, especially from a Blood Cell's perspective. Missing organs/limbs, maybe, but that just seems like our cells would see it as 'well it sucks like the last one but also it's smaller' mostly. ...Maybe a serious Cancer infestation?
