Iwahara's Dimension W Manga Changes Magazines
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 23rd issue of Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine announced on November 20 that Yuji Iwahara's Dimension W manga will move to the Monthly Big Gangan magazine. Iwahara will publish the manga's next chapter in the first 2016 issue of Monthly Big Gangan, which Square Enix will publish on December 25. Young Gangan publishes new issues twice a month while Big Gangan is on a monthly schedule.
The announcement also noted that the manga is entering a new arc.
Funimation, who is on the production committee for the manga's upcoming anime adaptation, 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 Young Gangan magazine in 2011, and Square Enix published the eighth compiled book volume on July 10.
The television anime adaptation will premiere in January.
