Right Stuf, Inc. has announced plans to publish the North American debut of the Hetalia Axis Powers: Volume 6 manga in Spring 2014.
Right Stuf made a special agreement with the Japanese publisher Gentosha Comics and Tokyopop in 2012 to publish the Hetalia: Axis Powers manga in the U.S (see "Right Stuf to Publish 'Hetalia: Axis Powers'"). Right Stuf began publishing with Volume 3 of the series, as well as reprinting the first two volumes, which were originally published in the U.S. by Tokyopop. (Volumes 4 and 5 will be released on December 10, 2013.) Like previous editions, Volume 6’s first print run will include a six-page color insert from the original Japanese print edition of the manga, with future print-on-demand editions of the volume including the pages in black-and-white. MSRP on the books will be $15.99. All volumes are currently available exclusively through rightstuf.com.
Hetalia Axis Powers is a politically incorrect satire of World War II in which the nations are represented by cartoon stereotypes. Originally created by Hidekaz Himaruya as a Japanese web comic, it was later adapted into a manga (released by Tokyopop) and an anime series currently available in North America on DVD from Funimation Entertainment (Funimation recently released Hetalia: The Complete Series-Seasons 3 & 4 (see "DVD Round-Up: 'Under the Dome,' 'Mad Men,' 'Robotech,' & Double-Dipping 'Hobbits'").
