Dimension W Anime's 6th Blu-ray to Include Unaired OVA Episode
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The staff of the Dimension W anime announced during an episode screening event last week on March 21 that the sixth volume of the anime's Japanese Blu-ray Disc release will include an unaired original video anime (OVA) episode. The sixth volume is slated for release on August 26.
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 series premiered in Japan on January 10, and aired its final episode last Sunday. Funimation streamed the English-subtitled version as it aired in Japan. The anime's English dub premiered on Toonami on February 27. Funimation is streaming the dubbed episodes two weeks after their Toonami premiere.
Kanta Kamei (Tales of Vesperia: The First Strike; Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Bunny Drop, Oreshura) directed the series at Studio 3Hz and Orange. Tokuyuki Matsutake (Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, Tales of Phantasia) designed the characters, and Shotaro Suga (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Darker than Black) served as story editor.
Yuji Iwahara (Darker than Black character designer and King of Thorn manga creator) launched the Dimension W "near-future science fiction action" manga series in Square Enix's Young Gangan magazine in 2011, although it moved to Monthly Big Gangan last December. Square Enix published the 10th compiled book volume last Friday. Yen Press published the manga's first volume in North America on February 23.
