All these series dominated the stage, and Dimension W was overwhelmed by them.

But the good thing is that the anime is quite popular and featured a good storyline. Hence, there is always a chance for it to get Dimension W Season 2 in near future.
The story of this show follows Kyouma Mabuchi, a veteran militant who doesn’t believe in Coil-technology. It is a device that harnesses the special and powerful energy from the newly discovered “Dimension W.” The new technology has led to new and more dangerous crime. Kyouma is a bounty hunter who hunts the criminal with such a background.
He meets Mira Yurizaki, an android with a connection to the “father” of coils. A series of mysterious events started to unfold and they both joined hands together to set out on a dangerous adventure.
The series lives up to its Seinen setting with possible outcomes of a battle. The loser died and Mira got his heart back. Everything went peaceful but it was just like another chapter of a long novel. There are still many more dangerous criminals, with a hideous psyche in the manga that stirs up a new story for Dimension W Season 2.
Sequel’s Release Date
There is the possibility of a sequel to Dimension W, but it will not come around soon. Both the studios are busy with their own projects, and they don’t want to take any chances especially when their hands are full. But, there is a possibility that they officially announce the future of this series by the end of this year. If the announcement comes, then the anime might return in late 2023.
