Watch the English dub first at AX 2016

Funimation has just announced that they will be showing a sneak peek of Tales of Zestiria the X's English dub at Anime Expo this weekend.
Aside from doing a simulcast, they will also be having the English dub of the Tales of Zestiria the X anime later this summer via FunimationNow. The first episode of the English dub will be premiering at Anime Expo 2016 this weekend at Los Angeles Convention Center. This is the first time the anime will be shown overseas even before the broadcast time (as Japan already held an advanced theater screening last June 25).
