The official website for the television anime adaptation of Yuji Iwahara's Dimension W manga announced the show's main cast on Saturday.

The main cast is as follows:

Daisuke Ono as Kyōma Mabuchi

Reina Ueda as Mira Yurisaki

Akira Ishida as Albert Schuman

Kimiko Saito as Marie

Eri Suzuki as Elizabeth Greenhow Smith

The website is also streaming the first promotional video. The video is the same as the one Funimation streamed last month, but it reveals the January 2016 premiere date at the end.

Kanta Kamei (Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike; Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Bunny Drop, Oreshura) is directing the series at Studio 3Hz and Orange. Tokuyuki Matsutake (Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, Tales of Phantasia) is designing the characters, and Shotaro Suga (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Darker than Black) is serving as story editor.

Funimation is on the production committee for the series, and it describes the story:

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.

Iwahara (Darker than Black character designer and King of Thorn manga creator) launched the "near-future science fiction action" manga series in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in 2011, and Square Enix published the eighth compiled book volume in July.
