The official website for the Dimension W television anime announced on Wednesday that Yuuki Kaji will join the cast as Haruka Shimeyer, pictured right.
The series premiered on January 10 and Funimation is streaming the series as it airs.
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.
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.
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 moved 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 in 2016.
