Dimension W – #03
KONICHIWA! This is Emi, the editor. In one word, my review of “Dimension W” is this: It’s funnier than ever before! I’m convinced; This anime is the bomb!
Despite the show didn’t include any dramatic action scene, however, the scenario itself is outstanding. The official twitter announced that this third episode is going to be “all about Mira.” True enough, the story this week allows us to enjoy Mira’s appeal to its fullest.
The main protagonist of this episode is Mira, however, the narrative is split into two people. The first half is Mira, and the latter half is Kyoma.
Alright then, let’s dive right into the highlights of the third episode.
Synopsis of third episode
Mira receives handsome rewards for the job she accomplished as a coil collector, and buys herself a trailer to live in. Kyoma lets her use a section of his gas stand shop to park her trailer.
Before too long, Mira realizes that there is absolutely no coil-supported devices in Kyoma’s house. “Why?” She gets curious. Meanwhile, Kyoma shows no interests in the life with Mira; he dives deeper into his research of Numbers. Back at Kyoma’s gas station, local kids sneak in to the parking lot and cause an accident. Mira happens to be on site, and gets into a trouble.
Highlight Mira’s growth
Mira originally used a small entrance space at Kyoma’s house; however, thanks to the cash rewards she earned from her job, she buys herself a trailer to live in. She’s ecstatic to have her own private space. While she is busy with having the house cleaned and equipped with new furniture, some local kids sneak in. They have been curious about Kyoma’s scrap cars in the junk yard. They climb up into a pile of scrap cars, which, unexpectedly collapses with kids inside. Mira dashed to rescue the kids from being trumped under the pile of scrap cars. She was able to save all the kids in the nick of time; however, her heads got severed from the rest of the body due to the impact of falling cars. Despite her mission to hide her identity as a human android, she revealed the crucial information to the children.
“I think I got a little full of myself after being praised.” she said in clear remorse.
Everybody wants to be acknowledged for the good work they did, it’s a basic need for a human being; “I want someone to need me so bad.” “I want to acquire the necessary skills quickly so I can be needed by someone.” A desire like that is very resonant.
All in all, Androids want to be treated like humans. It makes me emotional just to watch Mira acting just like a human being.
I think the mistakes she made this time help her to mature as human beings.
In the end, the kids kept their story minimal, thinking about another police inspection and all.
It looks like Mira and Kyoma built a deep friendship, which is so great!
So how do you feel?
An ever-changing, evolving Dimension W… I look forward to seeing more episodes.
