The North American anime distributor Funimation announced on Monday that its release of the Hetalia World Series anime series' second half will include the Fan Disk episodes. During Funimation's Live Q&A session, Funimation's Adam Sheehan and Justin Rojas confirmed that the company will dub the episodes, and noted that Funimation's team brought in their children to help dub the episodes.
The Hetalia - Axis Powers Fan Disk shipped in Japan in 2010 with three episodes: two re-edited compilations of the "America no Sōko Sōji" (America's Storage-Cleaning) and "Chibitalia" storylines, and an unaired "Ore-sama Nikki" (My Awesome Diary) episode featuring Prussia.
Funimation announced in 2010 that it licensed Hetalia World Series for home video and streaming, and it is releasing the first half on DVD this week.
