RIGHT STUF, INC. Announces
HETALIA AXIS POWERS Volume 6
GRIMES, IA, April 16, 2014 — Right Stuf, Inc. is pleased to announce that volume 6 of the HETALIA AXIS POWERS manga will be available on May 13, 2014.
Thanks to a special arrangement with TOKYOPOP and Hetalia’s Japanese publisher Gentosha Comics, the first print run of this book will include an 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. It 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) and an anime series that is currently available to North American audiences on DVD and Blu-ray from FUNimation Entertainment.
The first five volumes of the Hetalia manga are available now. Volumes 1-6 can be ordered exclusively through rightstuf.com. For more information about Hetalia Axis Powers, visit hetalia.rightstuf.com.
