In the upcoming anime adaptation of EX-ARM manga, high school student Akira Natsume is turned into an AI by transplanting his brain into a superweapon. Yes, totally opposite to what happened to Vision from MARVEL Universe.

The promotional video features the anime’s ending theme titled “Diamonds Shine” by Dizzy Sunfist.
