THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Interesting.

This show definitely has my attention. While it seems kinda generic, it's also thrilling and fun (lol, the OP song's little dance). I also like the technological aspect of the show. Mira is cute as despite being an android, she displays human traits. Kyouma is a pretty awesome guy and I love how he calm he is confronting some punks in the first half.

That bitch slap though lol. Could be a breakout show of the season if done right. Action was decent as well and Kyouma is a badass.

MC is just my type, and he seems like a great character as well. Love at first sight <3
I'm already on the hype train. First episode was really promising, and style and design look gorgeous.

Kyouma's what's making this show so much awesome! Can't wait to see how it will go from here. Easily one of the better premiere of the season.

After the travesty they made last year, Studio 3Hz might just be on the way to redeem themselves. That was a decent first episode featuring some fluid actions scenes, a cool MC and a cute loli robot sidekick. Plus, the plot is looking pretty interesting too.

Should be one of the better shows of this season, unless they mess up yet again.

The MC was the reason I wanted to watch this, and he didn't disappoint in this episode. The setting seems pretty cool, and I'll be interested to see what happens next.

I'm glad they haven't tried to explain the 'science' too much - with such a vague premise I was anticipating a whole bunch of BS pseudoscience explanations (which always irk me as someone who studies the real stuff). Of course, these might come later...

And the moral of the episode - water guns can be dangerous!

As expected, one of the best of this season. DNB in OP, wow.
And it looks very nice, as expected by Studio 3Hz too.

ED was great too.

Lol Kyoma dancing in the OP. That was pretty amusing.

This was one of the few non-sequel shows that I was looking forward to this season and the first episode wasn't too bad. The world they live in seems interesting and I look forward to learning more about how it works.

I didn't like how Kyoma just had to get slapped for no reason toward the end (bringing an ecchi/harem trope into something that isn't even an ecchi) but I think this could be decent if handled correctly.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Wow, I had quite high expectations for this but it far surpassed them. Awesome animation, music, character designs, characters and setting overall.

Mabuchi's friggin awesome. Probably my fav Male MC of the season yet. He's BA. Love his fighting style a lot and his personality is cool not to mention his Based VA ofc :P

Now for Mira...DAMN Dem hips!!! All dem fanservice shots on her were HAWT AF!! She's got one hella body :L and her personality is pretty damn fun too. Probably in my top5 girls of the season. She's strong as hell too. Dat bitch slap tho caused Mabuchi to lose consciousness from the power lol

Love the setting and potential. Just hope it's not too episodic and this will definitely be Top3 of the season.

OP was absolute HYPU!!

This could be a contender for AOTS if done right. I actually love the concept of a supposed unlimited supply of energy being available from a 4th dimension. New Tesla energy company that is spread across the world is setting up for some interesting events that are to be told in the future episodes.

The MC is pretty much an odd jobs person collecting the illegal coils. Lol he stills uses a car run on gas.
The OP is just funky with the dancing. Nice visuals as well for the series,
All credit goes to Sacred.

I`m so glad that Boku dake ga Inai Machi and Dimension W, my most anticipated animes of this season actually delivered. I loved the artstyle and the VA, the world building was interesting and they did not overwhelm us with a huge info dump right from the beginning. The story seems promising, somehow it the MC reminds me a little of Darken Than Black, which is not a bad thing at all, quite the contrary.

I can't wait for dance in the OP to be made into a gif.

It was about as solid as I was expecting. Lovely visuals and well animated action scenes with some decent world building. Even though the setting itself is a bit silly, there's still a lot of potential for some interesting things to happen depending on the execution of course and while I don't think this is the type of show that will go in depth into its characters, it seems like we can expect for some entertaining dynamics between them.

The direction and atmosphere are unfortunately a bit lacking. Also, Go Shiina's soundtrack isn't anywhere near as prominent as I was hoping for, but other than those small nitpicks it was a fine introduction episode.

Nice art/animation. Uninspired opening theme. I liked the dancing though.

The coils concept and AI are interesting. I'm hoping this series doesn't get watered down, and turn into a typical mob/action anime.

Loli robot? Ass shots? Oh, Japan...

Overall, not bad.

4/5

Not bad,this has potential.

Mira's fanservice is nice ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Already better than Studio 3Hz's first work Sora no Method (not that that's hard to achieve considering how terrible it was).

After watching PV, I had somewhat higher expectations. I placed them little bit too high I guess as the first episode still can be considered quite good. Unfortunately it wasn't !YEA!

Let's see how it will develop in the future.

Seems pretty interesting. The MC reminds me of Hei from Darker Than Black, what with his wires and few displayed emotions.
Probably going to be one of my more enjoyed anime this season.
Could do without the misunderstanding slaps / abuse though. Not really much of a fan of that trope.

Wow, potential AOTS right here. And the dancing in the OP was brilliant.


Great intro ep. Of coourse, the big question is whether she's human or robot.

I'm liking this anime already.

I really like the two main characters, they're pretty unique. I love that the male MC isn't a teenage highschool student, not that I have a problem with them, it's just that I like a variety sometimes lol.

The MC is so badass with the needles and wire, and the girl is really strong (neck breaking strong lol).

Overall, this show show's a lot of promise, hope it get's even better. 9/10

Cool main character? QT girl? Gorgeous visuals? Awesome soundtrack? I'm sold.

I've been waiting for this one since Funimation announced it's acquisition back in mid 2015. Glad it didn't disappoint.

Liking and interested in the main characters so far already. Their interactions so far are quite nice, and those slaps ^^. The concept is pretty cool and I like the sci-fi setting - it's pretty cool tbh. The visuals match well too and look great, and the ost is nice. Love the OP song~ Another one of the better starts of this season.

Very promising show so far! Great episode, glad it delivered.

Perhaps a better question - robot or cyborg? Scientist dude seemed to have a deadish-looking daughter in his flashback.
