Nice, I really enjoy horror aspects, so this episode was to my liking, mostly. I can't help but feel it's going too fast, but oh well.

Albert is pretty good at fighting as well. He's of the calm type of badass.

4/5

I'm not sure if people are bothered it but I love all the pandering fanservice of Mira.

Wow this is sick. I'm loving this anime so far. I was thinking this was similar to DTB, who knew the author of this manga is the very same author who did DTB. Sick man

It's the different author. The author of Dimension W is the original character designer of DTB, not the original creator of DTB. It's Tensai Okamura who created DTB.

Oooh ok mb but it is very similar. Koumas combat is like a mixture of Hei and the manuver gear from AOT

@Cirris Are you too stupid to realize there's a lot of space between "info dump" and "no info"? This story so far lacked enough build up to draw in to the point of being carried by main characters alone.

Probably the author of Dimension W is inspired by DTB, because as you said, it's pretty similar.

As soon as i saw miss Elizabeth in the OP it utterly obvious by her look (red eyes, blonde hair) that she was gonna be Vampire themed, although she must have some importance i'd imagine to the overall story if shes i the OP yes? (that and she appears to be a collector).

This "Ghost" mishap with Dimension w is certainly interesting, I'm alos intrigued to find out whats up with Shijuro being in this "Dream". did he portray himself so well into the coils or something?

Still a pretty damn good anime atm, can't wait for next episode!

Sick, we get more in-depth about coils but explanations are definitely needed in the next episode or so as it can be quite confusing. I wouldn't actually mind if they took it slower to explain about the whole coils and numbers situation slower in this episode.

We also get to look at another collector and some damn cool weaponry in this episode. I mean Kyoma's fighting style is cool but it would be nice to see other weapons used by other collectors like Loser, which has some sick combat skills.

A bit hard to follow but a fun episode nonetheless. New characters are interesting.

I like the fanservice, but I would have not watched this at all if Mira had been a male or something so my point of view is probably quite different from others'.

I found it pretty interesting, I wasn't expecting a Sci-Fi show to thrown in so much Supernatural stuff, it was interesting.

I did how ever find this episode a little confusing and I could have done without Mira's fanservice apart from that it was good.

We going down the gakkou no kaidan route now, I'm liking this stuff!
Mira-chan is such a nice girl, nice body, nice personality, nice looks, overall just NICE.
Her bath scene was g00d
Art and animation as always good
Blonde chibi appears
Mira-chan getting scared is qt, Touma needs to give her a break seriously.
Shitty journalist has been kill
Ghosts coming up and chasing Mira then she gets caught, hope nothing happens to her
So it's a parallel place, that ghost land or whatever
I like the ED, OP isn't bad as well
Good episode, it's a 3/5 from me.

The story became even more surreal in some ways, at first I thought something less abstract, something more related to sci-fi themes, however, are not disappointed by anything; indeed admit that the plot is finding some ideas rather bizarre but also interesting. The fact of not having a self-contained episode, helped in that sense, not bad cliffhanger. The relationship between the two protagonists does not change, this satisfies me, it shows a certain consistency of the protagonist. Drawings and animations very good, ditto the sets, are happy about it.

I'd be extremely uncomfortable to be chased around in a towel but then again I'm not a robot so yeah. I totally wasn't expecting all that naked Mira, and I understood nothing so I think I might need to rewatch this episode or read the manga like others suggested.

Agreed to the above! Lame MC's are tiring after a while. I really like the nice artwork done....thinking of the view from the dams. Just enough back drama to keep things curious without being "heavy" like Gangsta.

the fanservice angers, annoys, and disgust me so much. ofc mira would wear nothing but a towel when held hostage. ugh i knew from the start that its going to have fanservice and yet here i am.

Coming from a guy that rated Cowboy Bebop AND Sushi Police 6/10 that's to be expected.

Good episode, although I must say I was confused at times but I understood most.

Loved Al and Kyoma's fight, and finding a bit more about Al.

That bat girl is pretty cuul. This episode was also creepy.

I'm usually bothered by fan-service when something thrilling/important is happening and they can't help but sexualize the scene. However, I actually didn't mind :D

There's (almost) always a character with a goth/loli appearance >.> So funny, as were Mira's reactions in the shower. This show continues to delight. I wonder if Mabuchi and Mira will develop a deeper emotional bond? It usually happens in any pairing of main characters, but the only attention Mabuchi gives to ''the piece of junk, robot etc'' is when he needs her.

Finally I can say this show has legitimately peeked my interest. Looking forward to the next episode. And also i'm rather impressed with the quality of the dub so far, seeing how quickly they're doing it right after its aired in Japan.

Yeah, this actually is pissing me off a bit. Can Kyouma please stop being such a DICK to Mira?

He treats her like garbage and it's getting old. There's no reason why he has to be such an asshole to her; she's nice to HIM, isn't she?

Haha, I've already watched episode 11, and many things happen. I think that as their relationship develops, he calls her piece of junk kinda lovingly, as if in this relationship, he is the tsundere xD

Elizabeth's character design is so cute. Hope to see more of her.
Did not expect any mystery/horror coming from this anime, it's getting me pretty excited though.
The Mira fan service was pretty unnecessary though imo.

Ugh necessary fanservice. Shouldve seen it coming tho with the dumb cat girl thing but THAT much, come on now you're better than this DW. If they were going for sexy shouldve made her of age like over 18 at least, give her an actual adult face and not some 14 year old annoying ass moe side kick who's suppose to be cute and funny but spends half the time naked or in provocative positions.

Suddenly turned into horror+mystery. Some nice fashion & cool fights this episode. Mystery too rushed but I think the pieces are coming together.
Summary & guesses:
Kyouma & Albert both former Grendel soldiers.
Mc (Porcupine?) only man who survived entering W. Few backstory shots (seems a woman died from W collapse).
Elizabeth vampire/collector.
Ghosts are people from W merging with real world.
Riots against dam & students casualties due to berserk Number (prototype coil) 21 years ago.
Mira 3d reconstructed the region 21 years ago. Mirror shot feels like Macross Frontier op.
Classic horror sequence: some great atmosphere directing with the bathroom to porch, infinite corridor, & gory crazy room.
Kamiki Shirou (student in W) killed "himself" (Sakaki Shijuurou novelist) in real world. Cricket (doctor) reconstructed robot video to show student ghosts.
The ghost couple who imprisoned Mira, need novelist's imouto to sleep/dream in order to move between world. Inception?
Who are the 3 villains in the real world? 2 are slightly similar to the ghost couple.

That was fairly fast paced. I did think that Mira was trapped in the horror novelist's books at first. Slightly confusing all around, yet I enjoyed it thoroughly.

-Locked room mystery
-Schumann looks a hell of a lot different out of his work clothes
-So the other beast of Grendel that grandma Skyheart knew of was Schumann
-Mira's response to being told to sleep on the couch was pretty endearing, actually
-Not exactly sure where the students came from. They kinda sorta just plopped that in there without any context
-Also were we supposed to know who Shiro Kamiki was before they did that reveal at the end? He also just seemed like something plopped in the middle of everything

Exposition overload with a bunch of no-names being introduced without any context yet. Maybe it'll all make sense next episode but at this point I have no idea who Shiro Kamiki is or why he even matters in the first place. This is easily the worst episode so far since nothing too notable happened and the whole thing just felt like setup for something else.
