Tubi TV is beefing up its offerings with some new anime properties landing on there for the first time and they’re pulling from the Funimation library. The latest one to get the nod is the recent co-production with Dimension W now being made available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles in full here.
Check out our review of the limited edition release from Funimation.
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.
