EX-ARM Anime to Premiere in January 2021

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

This year's 39th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the television anime of Shinya Komi and HiRock's EX-ARM manga will debut in January 2021.

The anime was delayed to "fall 2020 or later" due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The anime would have premiered in July before the delay. Crunchyroll will stream the anime as a Crunchyroll Original series.

The anime will star:

The manga's crime battle story centers on high school student Akira Natsume. Only his brain is saved when he is involved in a traffic accident, and it later becomes part of an advanced weapon. Akira cooperates with the police's EX-ARM countermeasure division in order to regain his lost memories and body.

Komi launched the manga with HiRock's story in Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine in February 2015 as a remake of his earlier EX-VITA manga. The series moved to the Shonen Jump+ website and app in December 2017 and ended in June 2019.

Komi launched EX-ARM Another Code, a manga adaptation of Atarō Kumo's EX-ARM the Novel spinoff, in Shueisha's Ultra Jump magazine on February 19. Komi and HiRock launched the EX-ARM EXA manga in Shueisha's Grand Jump Mucha magazine in August 2019.
