2014: Akira Natsume seems to almost have a phobia of electrical devices while also being very good at diagnosing them. He resolves to change himself for the better and get a girlfriend like his older brother did. ...But then Akira suddenly dies in an accident. 16 years later a special policewoman and her android partner retrieve and activate a highly advanced AI and superweapon called EX-ARM and put it into full control of their ship as a last resort. Turns out the AI is actually just Akira's brain!

Wow. After only 4 episodes, I can already tell you this show is going to go down in history.

Let's start with the story: I haven't seen anything this original in a long time. From the very first frames, I was locked in. How did our protagonist go from being a failed isekai MC after getting hit by a truck, to going ultra-instinct, to being disembodied and placed in a box? How did he end up on a ship and why are two babes coming to rescue him? It's been quite some time since I've seen an anime with a first episode as great as read more

In the 1993 blockbuster "Jurassic Park," Ian Malcolm confronts John Hammond and his scientists over their genetic resurrection of the dinosaurs. “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should." Words to live by, but as it turns out, all the scientists in the world couldn't account for the possibility that dinosaurs would be, y'know, hungry.

Yoshikatsu Kimura, a live-action filmmaker, stated that his upcoming show "Ex-Arm" would give audiences something never before seen in anime. Yeah, we've certainly never seen a travesty like this before. Like John Hammond, Kimura lacked foresight to recognize a bad read more

So Bad It's Good!
Pretend it's off newgrounds.
Story: who the fuck cares?!?! it doesn't make sense don't try to make it make sense.
ART: Where it's not jank 3D CG it's pretty good surprisingly. genuinely wish this was just 2d animated. They do many zoom ins on low res backgrounds that just look terrible. Quote unquote artistic integration of mixed 2d and 3dcg to show a disconnect between the main character and the technologic world he lives in... yeah right. that's just BS it looks bad.
Sound: y'all like dubstep?
Characters: Literally Who?
Enjoyment: 10/10 thanks op would subscreeb
Overall 6/10 worth watching. give it a chance with a lot of read more

Where do I even begin with?

This anime is a trainwreck and we are currently 4 episodes deep. I don't have to wait for the show to finish to know this is bad, like really bad, and the problem isn't necessarily the plot. The soundtrack isn't bad either, the opening is actually quite enjoyable. But the animation, oh the unholy animation.

So, to begin with, they thought CGI would be the way to go, fair enough, bold decision but some animes managed to do it well..... But yeah they didn't. The characters look like they are traumatized, completely expressionless, they barely blink and their pupils are read more
