Jyugo, a man who attempted to break out of prison and ended up extending his jail time; Uno, a man who likes to gamble with women; Rock, a man who likes to get into fights; and Nico, a man who likes anime. A super exciting action comedy about the daily lives of the prison’s inmates and guards.”

Tales of Zestiria the X Catch-Up: Part 1 – The Main Characters of Zestiria

Part one of a three-part editorial series from one of Funimation’s copywriters, Lauren Hill

 

As an avid Tales of fan, especially Tales of Zestiria, I have never been more excited for an anime series than this one! I was first introduced to the Tales of franchise with Tales of Graces and was hooked ever since. And while there are so many more games to play, I’ve been making my way through the franchise. But considering you can spend over 80 hours on just one game, it’s quite a process! Totally worth it, zero regrets.
