Humans have always been fascinated by the concept of life and have tried to create or preserve it again and again. Not only have we created robots but also weapons of mass destruction.
The story of Ex-Arm is born from a fascination with trying to preserve a human even after death.
The action kicks off as a student who was supposed to be dead is found converted into a weapon of high intelligence.
The official website of Ex-Arm announced that the anime adaptation of the manga will premiere in January 2021.
The anime was initially set for a fall 2020 debut, but the release date has been further delayed to 2021.
Souma Saito, the voice actor for Akira and the director of the series, Yoshikatsu Kimura, will appear at the Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2020. The event will be held from 4th to 6th September 2020.
