KONNICHIWA! This is Emi, the writer. There is a buzz among the anime fans about the potentially best show in this season – it’s called ‘Dimension W.’ The first episode was absolutely delightful.
Today, I’m going to share with you three highlights of the show!
Episode one – synopsis
An inter-dimensional electromagnetic induction device, or, ‘coil,’ enables people to harvest an infinite supply of energy from ‘W,’ which is a newly-discovered fourth dimension in this futuristic world. A coil-hunter named Mabuchi Kyoma lives on selling unauthorized coils on black markets. He runs into a mysterious girl named Mira at the underground hangout of the Won brothers. Who is she, and why does she call Dr. Yurisaki, the esteemed coil inventor, a ‘father’…?
The main-stream cyber-punk elements in this narrative is dazzling. The story takes place in the year 2072, depicting a future world that has prospered by the clever use of coil power, the innovative system to harvest energy from the fourth dimension ‘W.’ In this futuristic world, an aged martial-art-yielder and alluring android girl jazz up things, and oh, talk about action scenes! I absolutely love the most recognizable cyber-punk look and feel, it’s authentic, and, totally hitting the spot. This is a show that you can enjoy for quite a long time.
People are buzzing that the heroine, Mira, is cute. She – or it – is an android, which is designed by the coil system developer Dr. Yurisaki and his wife. The character design is super adorable. A lot about her identity is unknown. Unfolding her mysteries could be one of the many promising features of this show.
The opening scene is really funny. The show opens with Kyoma‘s comical dance theme song. Fans found this entertaining and wrote something like ‘It’s funny.’ Or ‘You are the last guy who’d do THAT! LOL’
Did you know? The opening animation is a cool work done by the famous illustrator Yasuomi Umetsu, who’s known for his job in “Puella Magi Madoka Magica”, “Seraph of the End” and the like. His work in this show has already garnered quite a reputation among core fans.
Well, did you enjoy the review? I sure hope so! If you like main stream cyber punk anime, you got to check out this show! Don’t miss it!
