Lost memories and nightmares can be tragic and Kyoma Mabuchi would be one of the few people that can give you insight on how gruesome they can be. I mean, just look at his backstory. Plus, given the title drop of the episode, I’m sure we’ll be receiving nightmares and more. This episode of Dimension W was a good one with plenty of action and a few revelations, but let’s dive in to see how good it was.
SPOILERS AHEAD! If you haven’t seen this episode, I would recommend that you stop here. If you haven’t watched the series, please have a look at my first impression of Dimension W, it’s spoiler free!
Dimension W is a series that has plenty of action, and it does not leave one of its deuteragonists, Kyoma, out of the fun, but it also remembers to let Mira have her moments too. We can see this when Mira works together with the digger coil collectors to take down that giant CG robot that’s after Kyoma. It also shows that Mira can hold her own without having Kyoma fight battles for her, plus it’s always fun to see Mira fight some robots. Along with the action, we also find out about Adrastea’s purpose, which was space development for transportation. Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well since the method of transporting killed anyone that attempted to cross through it. The revelation of the transporter itself actually sparks other revelations such as the collectors reason for being at Easter Island, especially K.K. and Jason Chrysler.
I’ll explain more about it in a bit, but Jason Chrysler is after the “Ultimate Coil”, while K.K. is trying to eliminate anyone that has entered ground zero. We know that K.K. was hired by somebody, but the mystery is who hired him. I’m willing to bet a part of that will be revealed soon or it could be a set up for the finale of Dimension W, but for now, speculation is in the air. As for the ultimate coil, it is the coil of all coils, like the name suggests, but apparently it’s so dangerous that Dr. Yurizaki himself sealed it away and even Seameyer is obsessed on getting his hands on it. The only downside to this is that we are not told what it does exactly. So we only know it’s bad news, but again, I’m sure the ultimate coil will come into play later. During the episode, we see Kyoma face off against his grendel buddy, Doug, who appears brainwashed. Thanks to this encounter, we find out about the void and how it takes the “soul” of anyone who enters it, causing them to die. Dimension W displays the revelation of the void through Doug and showcases the impact it has on Kyoma, since Doug was his comrade. I’ve noticed that some of the mechanics in Dimension W‘s world conveys how dangerous it can be, despite the unlimited energy. Sure, the endless supply of it is nice and can bring innovations, but it doesn’t come without a price to pay, especially if one happens to use it incorrectly.
Towards the end, Kyoma gets glimpses of his mission on Easter Island since he is missing memories, which brings up the transporter and genesis. It turns out, the transporter only worked on objects, but not on humans. As for genesis, we get a nice look at it, but do not find out what it is. I’m willing to bet it is the ultimate coil that was mentioned earlier; the episode puts a nice emphasis on genesis, so I am sure we will be seeing it again later….plus, the opening of Dimension W is called “Genesis”, so there’s that! The final bit and treat of the episode was seeing K.K. getting his face bashed in by Kyoma, as well as finding out that Lwai is a robot with two bodies! Well, more specifically, he has two copies of himself since he is a robot and this makes me curious on how it works. Can Lwai share information from one copy to the next? Are there more copies?
All in all, the episode displayed several revelations along with delivering more plot points, which Dimension W has been doing well on these past episodes. So far, at ten episodes in, it has been a smooth and fun ride, so I look forward to how the finale will be handled. Perhaps something mind-blowing will happen just like the first episode?! Keep it going, Dimension W, you have me pumped!
