Anime News Network is reporting that the Toei Animation booth at Anime Expo 2015 is screening the first three episodes of the World Trigger anime in English. According to the report, representatives of the studio emphasized with the website that another company has not licensed the anime’s dub. Rather, Toei Animation itself commissioned the English version of the first six to seven episodes. Toei Animation have not made plans to screen the English version, including the episodes after Episode Three, in other venues after Anime Expo.
“Celebrating Anime Expo, Toei Animation will premiere World Trigger Episode 1-3 in English at our booth. Come find us!! — feeling excited,” the company wrote in a tweet.
“Come watch WORLD TRIGGER English dub premiere at Anime Expo!!!,” Toei later posted to both Facebook and Twitter confirming that the premiere would be an English dub.
The World Trigger anime from Toei Animation premiered on October 5, 2014. Crunchyroll simulcasts the English sub of the anime in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Latin America.
