Right Stuf/Tokyopop to Release Hetalia Volumes 4, 5 This Winter

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
2 companies released 1st 3 volumes last year

North American retailer and publisher Right Stuf revealed at Anime Expo on Friday that it is working with Tokyopop to release of the fourth and fifth volumes of Hidekaz Himaruya's Hetalia manga. Tokyopop added that the two volumes will be available before the holiday season this year.

Tokyopop founder Stu Levy revealed at Anime Expo last year that Gentosha Comics told him that the volumes would be released in English in North America.

Right Stuf, Gentosha Comics, and Tokyopop announced a collaboration last year to release the first three volumes of the manga series. The three companies published the third volume in the series in English for the first time earlier last year, and offered re-releases by print on demand for the first two volumes.

Tokyopop had planned on publishing the third volume of Hetalia in May 2011, but it shut down its North American publishing operations that same month.
