VIDEO: FUNimation Posts English “Dimension W” Anime Preview

FUNimation has posted an English version of the second preview for Dimension W. The new anime adaptation of Yuji Iwahara’s hit sci-fi mystery manga will be getting a global simulcast in 2016. 

 

 

Series Summary:

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.
