Dimension W is a Science Fiction manga written and illustrated by Yuuji Iwahara, who is known for being the character designer of the Darker than Black anime. The manga began in September 2011 under Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine, where a total of 8 volumes have been published.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
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.
The Dimension W anime will air on Sundays at 10:30pm JST on Tokyo MX starting from January 10, during the Winter 2015/2016 anime season. The first volume of the Blu-ray and DVD will release on March 25, containing a 3 minute special.
