The fifth anime season inspired by Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia manga is slated for 2013 under the tentative title Hetalia The Beautiful World. Four Japanese DVD box sets for Hetalia: Axis Powers and Hetalia: World Series have also been slated for release on a monthly schedule, beginning on September 26 and going to December 26.
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.
