Amazon Lists Hetalia Axis Powers Manga From Tokyopop

After weeks of teasing via their Twitter account, a listing on Amazon.com finally slaps a fairly definitive seal on Tokyopop‘s license acquisition of Hetalia Axis Powers. The online retail site lists the first volume of the series with a release date of September 2010. (via ANN)

Hetalia Axis Powers, which has garnered quite a fan following in recent years, is a satire series that plays on events occurring around the World Wars with involved-countries portrayed as human characters. Though originally starting as a web comic, it’s since been released in published manga form and most recently as an anime (which Funimation has licensed).

Along with Hetalia, Amazon’s recent update of Tokyopop listings include a couple other notable titles:

Black Gate by Yukiko Sumiyoshi
Eensy Weensy Monster by Masami Tsuda

Black Gate has a page count of 576 pages so it looks to be an omnibus release. Speaking of which, Amazon also lists a summer omnibus release of Queenie-chan’s The Dreaming series, which was originally released in three volumes between 2005-2007.
