Original Title in Japanese: Project Arms
The secret project is under way... The four students fighting spirit for peace is never satisfied!
After years of positive readers feedback and support, and due to popular demand, the serial comics ARMS now makes its TV debut as PROJECT ARMS.
This is a story of four high school students, Ryo, Hayato, Takeshi and Kei who have received ARMS transplanted to their bodies, for the project to exterminate the human race, by the mysterious and huge underground organization, Egregori.
Ryo (code name: Jabberwock) makes friends with short-tempered Hayato (code name: Knight). The pair is then joined by a new transfer student Takeshi (code name: White Rabbit)and by a welcome female addition Kei (code name: Queen of Hearts), a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to Katsumi, Ryos disappeared girlfriend. Together, their only hope against the evil Egregori lies within their ARMS and their support of each other in the face of seemingly hopeless odds. Egregori, however, has other ideas, sending a virtually endless supply of attackers such as the twin fighters, Jeff and Al, in order to test their skills.
When first implanted into a test subject, each ARMS will transform a chosen body part into a weapon of mass-destruction. During this initial stage, the ARMS act according to its hosts commands, giving them complete control, and power beyond the imagination. Gradually, however, ARMS begins to exert its own will, developing new abilities along the way, until the whole body mutates into a living, walking weapon, deprived of its humanity, of its soul. Those fortunate enough to survive the initial stage of ARMS implant, face a future of combat, death and destruction, as they are slowly taken over.
Despite their situation, Ryo, Hayato, Takeshi and Kei never give up their hope. By seeking answers to who and what they are and why they exist, they manage to accept what fate has brought before them, forging it into a bright future.
Four teenagers, one destiny. Their heroic battle continues, and with it lies the fate of all humanity.
