It’s time to head to the next dimension… the W dimension.
Earlier today, the official Dimension W anime website posted an updated version of the show’s second promo video. The two-minute teaser introduces the major voice cast and offers a short preview of opening theme Genesis by Stereo Dive Foundation.

Tokuyuki Matsutake is providing character designs for the project, while Shôtarô Suga handles Series composition. The series is currently slated for a January 2016 première in Japan.

FUNimation is a part of the show’s production committee. They describe the story as follows:
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.
A promotional video and a TV spot were previously released to promote Dimension W, along with a trio of key visuals. You can check these out, as well as the original version of the second promo, below.
