Plot Summary


In the future, Nikola Tesla's dream of a 'World System' of electricity is realized. Cords and batteries are a thing of the past, and now people can directly draw energy using devices known as 'coils.' Some people, however, modify these coils for destructive purposes. Mabuchi Kyoma, a man who lives in ruins and has a passion for 'vintage' gas-powered cars, has good reason to know what damage these coils can do. He takes on assignments from a large woman known as Marie, recovering illegal coils in exchange for cash and gasoline.

One day, he goes out on one of his usual missions, to retrieve illegal coils from two criminal brothers, Jony and Every Won. When he gets to their gang's hideout, however, there is another stranger there: a mysterious, cloaked captive that appears to be a young lady. Who is she and will this meeting change Kyoma's life?


At the Anime Expo, Funimation just announced a new anime adaptation based on the manga, 'Dimension W'. They are part of the co-committee to produce the series.

Now even more people will get the impression that Funimation MAKES anime rather than license it

Wow, I didn't know that the manga was that popular. Sure didn't see this series ever getting an anime but I'm glad nevertheless.

In the post on Funimation's blog, they state "Dimension W gets Simultaneous Release Across the World in 2016!". That makes me wonder if it could possible coincide with Funimation's stated plans to expand into other markets.

In any case, this beats Last Exile - Fam as the earliest simulcast announcement.

Huh. Two surprises in one go. Wasn't expecting this manga to get an anime any time soon. Nor funimation to be part of the commitee to produce. I wonder what that will entail.

Oh wow how did this go under my radar -- everything about this has me intrigued and now looking forward to it. The art, character designs, style, setting and its homage to Tesla is beyond worth checking out to say the least, and the promotional vid gives me a high incentive to be on alert for it if the animation plans to be that fluid.

Haha also don't have to wonder which Streaming Site is getting the rights to this come Jan.

Edit: ...and it comes from the author who retcon'ed S2 of Darker Than Black *Shudder*, with a sequel manga although not as great as its prequel it still had the proper tone and enjoyment to be expected from the series (speaking of which somone animate this, please)....further excited for D-W

This is pretty much guaranteed Funimation property so they will be streaming it.

I am hooked on the Manga A good blend of SCi-FI / Bounty hunter action / And quite mysterious ! / great Ninja skills too

And if you liked Solty Rei and Cowboy Be-Bop its reminds me a lot of those shows I wont spoil but you wiil see !

Of course there is a lot of cool Sci-Fi / yet some throwback techonolgy Great blend of new vs old

And the homage to Tesla who gets overlooked by Edison and Marconi but had ideas like / thought process like Gaileo / Da Vinci / Jules Verne / Hg Wells
