Tokyopop Gauges Interest in Limited Hetalia #3 Release

Founder Stu Levy asks about manga volume slated for May, before firm's N. American publishing shutdown

Tokyopop founder Stu Levy asked on the company's Facebook page on Friday if there is interest in a release of Hidekaz Himaruya's third Hetalia manga volume. However, Levy cautioned that "it's a bit more limited than back in the old days."

Tokyopop had planned on publishing the third volume of Hetalia this past May, but it shut down its North American publishing operations that same month.

Gentosha published the fourth manga volume in Japan this past June. The publisher also announced last week that Himaruya will begin serializing the manga in the next issue of its Monthly Comic Birz magazine this month.

Update: More background information added.
