Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ app published the last chapter of Shinya Komi and HiRock's EX-ARM manga on Wednesday. The app also revealed that a new manga tentatively titled EX-ARM EX will launch in Shueisha's Grand Jump Mucha magazine on August 28.
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 Grand Jump 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. Shueisha published the manga's 13th compiled book volume on April 19.
The manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation.
Atarō Kumo (novels of Hinomaru Sumo, live-action Teiichi no Kuni film) wrote EX-ARM the Novel Deus Ex Machina, the manga's first novel adaptation, which debuted last December.
