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!

“What is the meaning of life?”

Ex-Arm is a phenomenal anime. It is a beauty to behold for the mind, the ears, and the eye. It is a landmark achievement in art and animation, which no other anime shall surpass. This pulls you in, then touches your soul. It will make you feel a powerful range of emotions that you have never felt before—happiness, sadness, rage, ecstasy, and fear. Everytime the opening song “Rise Again” began, I felt goosebumps run down my spine. The orgasmic CGI animation will make you vomit your brains out. You will ultimately feel a satisfaction unmatched by that which you have read more

Ex-Arm is an anime that is largely misconceived. Look at all the people saying how godawful the writing and especially the animation is. However, they couldn't have been further from the truth. In reality, Ex-Arm is a visionary masterpiece with little to no flaws. Every single person involved with the anime's production was extremely passionate about it, and they put a monstrous amount of effort into making it incredibly compelling and profound. As a result, Ex-Arm has become the greatest SF series of all time, and possibly one of the greatest things mankind has ever created. PERIOD.


Now, let's get serious for a bit.

Hello Hello Anime of the Season? Anime of the Season. P.S. This is a poorly written review fitting for a poorly made anime. Goodbye Goodbye

When the opening says “Hello hello” it greets you like a waiter at a 5 star restaurant who serves us. It understands its customers so well. Some of my favorite quotes by the waiter named Ex-Arm are: “Kiss for me.” and “That’s why you can spout this bullshit.” Brought to you by the beloved Crunchyroll, Ex-Arm is a 10/10 Crunchyroll Original with CGI you’ve never seen before! It is gr2.

Instead of talking about something as trivial as story and character, I’m read more

"Hello, hello, I don't want to make it out of the fake." ~ Best Opening EVER !!!

2019: Arifureta
People: "My God, this animation is the worst I have ever heard."
2020: Gibiate
People: "They even managed to make the sound effects worse."
2021: Ex-Arm

"Visual Flight", remember that name forever. It is the studio of Ex-Arm, one of the anime with one of the worst CG's that ever existed. In fact, the studio went further. But let's start with the best side of the show, its synopsis. Basically, Ex-Arm tells the story of a group of people who fight technological weapons called Ex-Arm (which read more
