The official website for the television anime of Yuji Iwahara's Dimension W manga posted an updated promotional video with the January 10 premiere date and a new visual on Tuesday. The video previews the opening theme song "Genesis" by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION.
The series will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on January 10 at 10:30 p.m., and then run on KBS Kyoto, BS11, AT-X, Sun TV, and TV Aichi. It will also run on the Niconico streaming service.
Funimation Entertainment previously streamed English-subtitled promotional videos:
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.
The main cast includes:
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
Yūichi Nakamura as Loser
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Koorogi
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.
Stereo Dive Foundation (Gangsta., Beyond the Boundary) will perform the opening theme song "Genesis" and Fo'xTails (Junjō Romantica 3, Kuroko's Basketball) will perform the ending theme song "Contrast." Stereo Dive Foundation's single with the opening theme will ship on January 27, and Fo'xTails' single with the ending theme will ship on February 3.
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, although it will move to Monthly Big Gangan on December 25. Square Enix published the eighth compiled book volume on July 10. Yen Press will start publishing the manga in North America next year.
