Cells at Work Black #02 — Tip Your Hostess

January 14th, 2021


I'm honestly surprised there wasn't a burly, poorly dressed transgender hostess since Japan loves that awful gag so much.

I guess the 'simulcast' is permanently going to be on Thursdays, despite the actual Japanese broadcast being on Saturdays? I honestly have no idea. 


I'm feeling like I may just cut and run from all edutainment this season. I did glance at the shouty 'comedy' side too, and it was the same episode as usual. One of the two segment ones about bacteria in the gut and vaccines. Both were the same episode it does every week. This didn't win itself any favors either though by once again trotting out an old guy to 'shockingly' die at the end of the episode. Repetition runs in the blood. Nor was it helped by the glamorization of Japan's creepy hostess industry, and how they're doing a valuable job in relieving men's stress by waiting on them hand and foot, and we should all be a little more aware of and appreciate them for their servile efforts.

The main thing though is that it was just a really, really boring episode. They started with a cold sore, and then just… gave up on that after being dosed with alcohol to go sit in a bar and listen to liver factoids for the entire second half of the episode. At least the screamy version had something going on. The exact same goddamned thing as a dozen times before, but the repetition is what killed it. This combined repetition of the first episode's ending with a build-up of… dudes sitting around drinking while boobs are flashed at them.

    Can I get you another helping of boob to go with your boobs?

    Weird choice to give the shadows that ugly filter during the “serious scenes”. It’s not a good look.

    As expected they censored the belly dancer, with funimation involved my hopes were low.
