For all you Toonami fans out there waiting to find out what will replace Akame Ga Kill, I hope you were watching the Feb. 12th broadcast of Toonami Pre-Flight. Right at the top of the show, because they knew you were waiting for the information, they announced that the new show replacing the 12:30am time slot will be Dimension W. The premiere date will be on February 27th.
Dimesion W is actually a brand new series that just came out for the Winter 2016 season and is being simulcasted on Funimation. A synopsis of the show is 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.” (Funimation)
