Toonami will begin broadcasting the English dub premieres of Dimension W on February 27th at 12:30AM EST/11:30PM CST replacing Akame ga Kill. Each dub episode will stream exclusively on AdultSwim.com for two weeks and then be available on FUNimation.com. English subtitled Japanese episodes will continue to stream on FUNimation.com and Hulu just as they have been. Toonami will be airing episodes just eight weeks behind the Japanese broadcast making it the closest turn-around from the Japanese broadcast since Space Dandy’s simuldub in 2014. This news comes directly from the latest episode of Toonami Pre-Flight and FUNimation’s website.

Synopsis from FUNimation:
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 English cast will feature Christopher R. Sabat (Zoro from One Piece, Vegeta and Piccolo from Dragon Ball Z, Armstrong from Fullmetal Alchemist) as Kyoma, Jad Saxton (Hana from Michiko & Hatchin, Adélie from Space Dandy), Eric Vale (Sanji from One Piece, Trunks from Dragon Ball Z) as Albert and J. Michael Tatum (Scar from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Erwin from Attack on Titan) as Loser, Stephanie Young (Nico Robin from One Piece) as Mary, Josh Grelle (Armin from Attack on Titan, Ox Ford from Soul Eater) as Koorogi and Jeremy Schwartz (Duran from Space Dandy and Sorbet from Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’) as Shido.
