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 Shōtarō 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.
