Just recently on Toonami Pre-Flight, it was revealed that FUNimation’s Dimension W would be airing on the block at 12:30 AM starting February 27th. Due to it being one of FUNimation’s broadcast dubs, this will be the second series to air on the block while it’s still broadcasting in Japan, the first being Space Dandy.
SYNOPISIS: 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.
