Osaka pop punk band Airflip performs theme song "Rise Again"
Crunchyroll started streaming a promotional video for the television anime of Shinya Komi and HiRock's EX-ARM manga on Friday. The video reveals the theme song "Rise Again," which the Osaka "pop punk band" Airflip is performing for the anime.
The anime will premiere in January 2021, after being delayed from July to "fall 2020 or later" due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Crunchyroll will stream the anime as a Crunchyroll Original series.
Yoshikatsu Kimura, who has worked on the live-action 20th Century Boys and Ajin films, directs the anime at the studio Visual Flight. Tommy Morton is overseeing the series scripts, and Sō Kimura is composing the music.
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.
