~At the time of writing this the OVA has yet to air so this is only about episodes 1-12~ My very first impression after finishing episode 1 was, "very typical shounen, nothing special show". To be completely honest, if this show wasn't airing on "Toonami" I probably wouldn't have ever watched it/continued watching it. I'm glad to say that after episode 5/6 or so it began peeking my interest a bit more, enough that I actually wanted to watch more of it. Now the story is very original and a bit down right confusing during the show. The world discovered a new dimension, they named it "dimension W". They found a way to harness the energy from the dimension & turn it into a limitless energy supply for the entire world. Coils are what harnesses this power, the government distributes these. The main character hunts down illegal coils for money & goods. Now whats original about it? Everything now runs on this limitless energy, the possibilities are literally endless to what can be done. All the cities & everything have advanced so far, flying vehicles, robots, all types of stuff. Yet it still feels like not THAT far off into the future. The animation is pretty good, the artwork is really nice & all the character designs are pretty good looking. The music matched fine, nothing felt off or out of place. The op song is one of the most catchy/get me hyped songs I've ever heard from any anime, definitely one i'll remember. The English dub was done pretty well, I liked just about every character especially the two main ones. If your looking for something shounen, with your cool fights, explosions, "badass" main character then this is something you'll probably like. Also if your interested in the idea's of everything existing at the same time & limitless possibilities you'll probably enjoy this a bit too. As average as I found this show I have to say its original in its ideals & theories, that's the only reason I give it a 7.5/10
4/5 Why? Very typical shounen, action, explosions, "cool, dark" main character, etc. The animation was pretty good. Music matched fine, OP song was awesome an instant favorite. The story is really the only thing that saves this show, its very original (& has a lot of potential) in its concepts about possibilities, potential, energy, etc. If it sounds interesting, give it a watch you may enjoy it more than I.
