On Funimation’s website they have listed that the Barakamon TV anime will have an English dub premiere of the first two episodes starting on June 28th. However even though an English dub premiere is set for the series, it has not been officially stated whether or not the series is receiving a full English dub. The home video rights for the series mind you, belongs to Funimation. The anime series originally released July 6th 2014 and ended September 28th 2014 releasing 12 episodes. The series is based off of a manga originally which started February 21st 2009 and is ongoing publication. It should also be noted that the series prequel manga Handa-kun which began October 12th 2013 and is still continuing, will be airing as a TV anime this coming July. Finally is a plot summary of the series quoted from MAL:

Seishuu Handa is an up-and-coming calligrapher: young, handsome, talented, and unfortunately, a narcissist to boot. When a veteran labels his award-winning piece as “unoriginal,” Seishuu quickly loses his cool with severe repercussions.
As punishment, and also in order to aid him in self-reflection, Seishuu’s father exiles him to the Goto Islands, far from the comfortable Tokyo lifestyle the temperamental artist is used to. Now thrown into a rural setting, Seishuu must attempt to find new inspiration and develop his own unique art style—that is, if boisterous children (headed by the frisky Naru Kotoishi), fujoshi middle schoolers, and energetic old men stop barging into his house! The newest addition to the intimate and quirky Goto community only wants to get some work done, but the islands are far from the peaceful countryside he signed up for. Thanks to his wacky neighbors who are entirely incapable of minding their own business, the arrogant calligrapher learns so much more than he ever hoped to.
