In the near future, humans have discovered a fourth dimension, Dimension W, and a supposedly infinite source of energy within. In order to harness this profound new energy, mankind develops advanced "coils," devices that link to and use the power of Dimension W. However, by year 2071, the New Tesla Energy corporation has monopolized the energy industry with coils, soon leading to the illegal distribution of unofficial coils that begin flooding the markets.

Kyouma Mabuchi is an ex-soldier who is wary of all coil-based technology to the extent that he still drives a gas-powered car. Kyouma is a "Collector," individuals with the sole duty of hunting down illegal coils in exchange for money. What started out as just any other mission is turned on its head when he bumps in Mira Yurizaki, an android with a connection to the "father" of coils. When a series of strange events begin to take place, these two unlikely allies band together to uncover the mysteries of Dimension W.

Dimension W was first announced to be in production at Anime Expo 2015 in Los Angeles. Studio 3Hz is responsible for animation production, while the studio Orange is responsible for CG production. North American distributor FUNimation Entertainment is also a member of the production committee.

Set in a not-too-distant future, Dimension W revolves around the existence of "coils," devices capable of harnessing unlimited energy from a parallel dimension called "Dimension W."

Mixed Feelings
History: The story is predictable, knowing that anime made for teenagers almost never die

Art: Art is a strong point, and is suitable for any genre

Characters: The characters had their personalities, even if they were all clichés for the situation, they served their purpose

You'll like it because it has interesting scenes and involves pasts and redemptions.

It's an anime that you might love or hate. If you find yourself in the middle, it's because something wasn't captured by you while watching. Dimension W brings a very good idea, another Dimension? Look how brilliant this sounds to us viewers, however, it falls into the same archaic shounen anime ...

(This review has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

When I was a kid, I would play video games so much that I had to constantly beg my parents to keep a reserve of batteries in the house. We actually stashed them in the refrigerator, believing that having them at a colder temperature would somehow make them last longer.

Whether or not that’s true, though, I cannot say. What I can say is that Dimension W needed to replace its own batteries at some point but never got the memo.


Dimension W follows Kyouma, a man with a deep resentment for Coils. Coils are a newfound ...
