What Happens In Dimension W, Stays In Dimension W

Literally…

I found the dub of this show on Funimation. It is enjoyable, although not what I’d call a perfect show by any means.

Set in the future, humanity has found another dimension (which they obviously refer to as Dimension W) and they have found a way to harness limitless energy using an invention called “coils”.

The story follows Kyouma Mabuchi, an ex-military special ops soldier, who now shuns this new technology and hunts illegal coils for money. On a job, he encounters an android, Mira Yurizaki, who happened to be the android to the father of the coil technology. And from there the story develops.

Overall, it’s an enjoyable ride. I did find the finer details towards the end dealing with what Dimension W actually is, and what happened to the protagonist there in the past, a little convoluted and found myself hoping for more (and clearer) explanations. Also, another reviewer pointed out the fight scenes with Mabuchi throwing his darts with the wires attached could get a bit perplexing (where were those long wires??!!).

I liked the animation style overall. It was well done.

What I did find irritating (and this is a “me” thing) was the fan service with Yurizaki. It wasn’t extreme, and I know they do it so all the young otakus will buy her figurine later, but I found it pointless and distracting.

 

I know, I know…It’s just what you find in anime, but it’s not always necessary.

I watched the dub of this, and it was very good.  Christopher Sabat voiced Mabuchi and Jad Saxton voiced Yurizaki. The complete dub is available on Funimation’s streaming service.

Attention Parents: Overall the show isn’t too bad. There is some violence, but not excessive or bloody in particular. The fan service is mostly a half naked Yurizaki, which isn’t horrible, but I found it distracting and annoying more than anything. It does have a few disturbing ideas towards the end of what happened to survivors of an experiment gone wrong that might not be good for a young viewer.

Aside from some minor points, I enjoyed this show. The story is interesting, characters enjoyable, and the voice acting and animation were well done. A good watch over all.

Until next time, Happy viewing!

    Hi – Just ran across your blog for the first time. I think it’s a great idea. My husband and kids are anime fans, so I have him to “screen” them. But I love your concept. Also, loved your cosplay costume. My daughter, who does cosplay, completely appreciated your effort and said, “what a cool dad!”

      Thank you very much! My sons didn’t appreciate it as much since they had to be seen with me.
      It’s tough. There are so many great shows, but they can be deceptive at times. I also find ratings, while a clue, a subjective guideline because different things are off-putting to different people.

    I found the plot of Dimension W really frustrating, mostly because the whole technology side of things was never clearly defined so they used coils and the like however they wished to solve the next problem and put limitations on it when they decided they needed to. And without any explanations that make sense, the entire problem of the series doesn’t really get a lot of audience buy in.
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this series.
