Anime Limited has made some good pickups this weekend for UK release and another one of those is the announcement at the MCM London Comic Con that they’ve grabbed Dimension W. The series is an interesting one since it has Funimation involved with it as a co-production, which gave us a lot of behind the scenes material. Anime Limited naturally doesn’t have any release plans yet since the show just ended in Japan in the winter 2016 season and the home video releases in Japan are just beginning.
The English language production has Zach Bolton and Colleen Clinkenbeard directing based on the scripts from Bonny Clinkenbeard. Brandon Peters serves as the ADR engineer. The cast includes Christopher R. Sabat as Kyomo, Eric Vale as Albert, Jad Saxton as Mira, J. Michael Tatum as Loser, Stephanie Young as Mary, Josh Grelle as Koorogi and Jeremy Schwartz as Shido.
The series is based on the manga by Yuji Iwahara which has its eighth volume coming out recently. The anime is directed by Kanta Kamei based on scripts by Shoutarou Suga and character designs by Tokuyuki Matsutake. It was animated at Studio 3Hz.
The Japanese cast includes Daisuke Ono as Kyouma Mabuchi, Reina Ueda as Mira Yurisaki, Akira Ishida as Albert Schumann, Eri Suzuki as Elizabeth Greenhough-Smith and Kimiko Saito as Marie.
With the opening song Genesis from STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION, the series premiered on January 10th, 2016 in Japan.
Plot concept: In the year 2071, the world’s energy problems seem solved by a network of cross-dimensional electric-field inductors- “coils” -that extract energy from a seemingly infinite source. That source is the W dimension, a fourth plane that exists beyond the X, Y, and Z dimensions. In this world, unofficial “illegal” coils harness powers that the police can’t hope to counter. Dealing with these coils is the job of coil-hating repo man Kyoma, whose run-in with the unique coil android Mira leads the two to form a reluctant partnership.
