Right Stuf to publish Hetalia manga

Right Stuf has announced that it has entered a deal with Japanese publisher Gentosha and western publisher TokyoPop to publish the manga version of Hetalia: Axis Powers.

Right Stuf will be releasing the first two volumes immediately, which had been previously released by TokyoPop between 2010 and 2011. The so far never translated third volume, which was due to be published by TokyoPop just before they withdrew from the English-speaking market, will finally be released on 19th June.

Copies can be pre-ordered for $10.99 (a 30% saving from RRP of $15.99). As a special offer, Right Stuf are giving away an eight-page colour insert that came with the original Japanese print edition (future printed editions of volume three will only display them in black and white).

The manga can currently be purchased and pre-ordered from the Right Stuf website.
