I loved this. I watched it a few weeks ago and now for obvious reasons I can't stop thinking about the visuals of the germ-monsters descending on the good people of this world. It also introduced me to a bunch of interesting concepts in a way that was easy to understand.

I found this after someone on Twitter described it as the most violent anime they'd ever seen.

Huh - I was revisiting the Fanfare Talk seasonal anime posts to refresh my memory on people's opinions while the series was airing and was surprised to note it wasn't discussed extensively, other than comments on how much people liked it. See Summer 2018 Anime Season and Fall 2018 Anime Season,

My main impressing after the end of the season is that the person whose body the cells are part of is truly unfortunate. I mean flu and allergy us one thing, but cancer? Hemorrhagic shock? What the hell happened?

Yeah they are going through it. Don't forget the almost deadly heat stroke!

I watched the first two episodes but it wasn't doing it for me. It is indeed kind of violent, with the germ blood everywhere, and looks jarring on the white blood cells.

The platelets are super adorable though.

That's nothing. Have you read Cells At Work Code Black?

I... I watched most of this on Netflix the other month! Still have to see the last two episodes (or just the last episode? ...?? adsf; I forget), but I enjoyed what I watched so far.
