The September issue of Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine is announcing on Monday that a fifth season of the Hetalia anime has been green-lit. The same issue notes that the fifth volume of Hidekaz Himaruya's original manga will go on sale on Tuesday.
Funimation has been releasing the previous anime seasons and the Hetalia Axis Powers: Paint it, White! film in North America. Tokyopop published the first two manga volumes, but it shut down its North American publishing operations last year. Right Stuf announced in May that it partnered with the Japanese publisher Gentosha Comics and Tokyopop to release the first three manga volumes, and Tokyopop founder Stu Levy said at Anime Expo that the next two volumes will also be released in English.
