Horimiya has been trending in the anime world as the animated series continues to pace the story of Kyouko Hori and Izumi Miyamura is a high school romance produced by CloverWorks.

Horimiya's story revolves around Kyouko Hori who, despite having a friendly personality and academic prowess, still hides another side of her as she is most at home being a second parent to her younger sibling given that her parents are not always around due to work. This leaves Hori no chance of socializing outside her home.

On the other hand, Izumi Miyamura is a brooding otaku who is a struggling student with no friends in school taking him for group works and other academic stuff. Miyamura has been like this since his childhood and it still haunts him which leads him to put behind his skeletons in the closet and put on his long hair and various piercings and tattoos.

Crossing paths, Hori and Miyamura take the viewers to a world where acceptance is key to inevitably fall in love, not only between each other but their own selves as well.

As more and more are getting hooked on the story of Hori and Miyamura, it has been a lingering question as to when it would be having an English dub.

Although there is no confirmation yet as to the English dub of the animated series, it has a good chance that it will. CloverWorks is known for producing animated series that get dubbed overtime especially for animated series that gain more popularity than others.

That being said, since Horimiya is gaining more viewers and having fans invested in the story of Hori and Miyamura, it will likely have an English dub but there is no guarantee as to when and how considering that the series was already released.

If and when the series will get an English dub, it will likely be produced after the whole series is released since Horimiya is currently airing its weekly episodes.

Given the production time, licensing will also be important for English dubs to happen. It usually takes half a year to release the English dub depending on the production company. Some animated series, however, take years to have an English dub.

The pressure of the fans on CloverWorks can possibly make this happen as well. A positive and continuous call could push the production company to produce an English dub for the well-loved animated series.

Funimation will also take a part in this when it happens given that they have the license to air the series. For Funimation, if they will to have an English dub for an animates series and given that they are licensed to it, it could take a year or more after airing the whole series for them to release the English dub.

For now, the viewers would still have to wait as to the confirmation of the English dub of Horimiya and settle for the subtitles to follow the story of Hori and Miyamura as their relationship takes on the next level.
