Hetalia Axis Powers Volume 6 Coming Spring 2014

GRIMES, Iowa, Nov. 20, 2013 – Right Stuf, Inc. is excited to announce the upcoming North American debut of Hetalia - Axis Powers Volume 6, scheduled for Spring 2014.

Thanks to a special arrangement with TOKYOPOP and Hetalia's Japanese publisher Gentosha Comics, the first print run of the book will include a six-page color insert! Once the initial print run sells out, the volume will be transitioned to Right Stuf's print-on-demand program.

Hetalia - Axis Powers, created by Hidekaz Himaruya, started as a Japanese web comic, which utilizes personification to represent countries and their participation in historical events, while poking fun at cultural stereotypes. It was later adapted into a manga (released by TOKYOPOP), as well as an anime series that is currently available to North American audiences on DVD from FUNimation Entertainment.

The first three volumes of the Hetalia manga are available now. Volumes 1-5 can be ordered exclusively through Right Stuf.com. For more information about Hetalia - Axis Powers, visit hetalia.rightstuf.com.


Volume 6 of Hetalia - Axis Powers brings about a surprise birthday party for Iceland thrown by his neighbors, the other Nordic nations. Then, Sealand, Wy and Seborga try to recruit other micro-nations into their own special club. But the real shocker comes when Germany shacks up with Austria and finds that his new roomie isn't at all that he expected!

That's not all! Chibitalia must fight to keep King Henry VII of England in the Catholic Church, Seychelles shows a visitor around her beautiful island and Nekotalia returns in this action-packed manga!
