The official website of the television anime adaptation of HiRock and Shinya Komi's Ex-Arm manga revealed additional cast and the ending theme on Saturday. The anime is scheduled to premiere in January 2021.

Shuuichi Natsume: Kouji Yusa (ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka)
Souma: Yuu Kobayashi (Kekkai Sensen)
Yggdrasil: Miyu Tomita (Dorohedoro)
Kaori Munakata Satomi Arai (Toaru Kagaku no Railgun)

Pop-punk band Dizzy Sunfist is performing the ending theme "Diamonds Shine."

Yoshikatsu Kimura (KG Karate Girl live-action film) is helming the anime at studio Visual Flight. Tommy Morton is credited for the series composition, and Hajime Kimura (F-Zero X video game OST) is composing the music.

Komi and HiRock serialized the action sci-fi manga in Grand Jump from February 2015 to November 2017, then transitioned to the online platform Shounen Jump+ in December 2017. The series concluded with its 98th chapter in June 2019. A sequel manga, titled Ex-Arm Ex, began serialization in Grand Jump in August 2019.

I saw the pv and I had a good laugh, this has the potential to be better than Nora

Everybody's hating, but this is going to break the internet. That CG made me nut.

can you imagine spending all that time creating a manga hoping it will get popular then you find out it's getting an anime and it looks like PS1 game now that's despair
if it's between living obediently or dying a free man I'd rather pick the ladder

This show is so DOA. I mean, Berserk bombed, and that had the backing of an all time classic manga.

This needs a 3-6 month delay announcement to fix the bad early PS2 CG. Crunchyroll was better off airing High Guardian Spice, which is not even anime over this.
