Dimension-W-Anime-Visual

Dimension W is a Japanese manga series written by Yuji Iwahara and published in Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine since 2011. The series is licensed in North America by Yen Press. An anime television series is scheduled to air in January 2016.

Dimension W synopsis from Haruhichan:

In the year 2072, 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.
