Dimension W Manga Ends in June

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sci-fi manga launched in 2011, inspired 2016 TV anime

This year's sixth issue of Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine revealed on Saturday that Yuji Iwahara's Dimension W manga will end in the magazine's next issue on June 25.

Yen Press publishes the manga in North America, and it describes the series:

2072 AD. With the invention of cross-dimensional electromagnetic inductors known as "coils," the world's energy crisis has long been solved. Kyouma Mabuchi is a "Collector" who makes his living by recovering illegal coils for the powers that be. When his latest gig brings him upon a mysterious girl named Mira, little does he know that their meeting will bring them both closer to the secrets behind "Dimension W"-the fourth dimension, beyond X, Y, and Z, that powers the world...So begins this progressive sci-fi tale where the future of science and humanity itself may very well hang in the balance!

Iwahara (Darker than Black character designer and King of Thorn manga creator) launched the manga series in Young Gangan magazine in 2011, although it moved to Monthly Big Gangan in December 2015. Square Enix published the manga's 15th compiled book volume last November, and Yen Press published the manga's 14th volume on May 21.

The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in January 2016. Funimation streamed the English-subtitled version as it aired in Japan. An English-dubbed version premiered on Toonami in February 2016, with Funimation streaming the dub two weeks after every episode. Funimation released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in May 2017.
