“You are what you eat.”

And what we consume, devour, dine, feast, gobble up, nibble, sup, and masticate on are literary art in comic book form, direct from the warped minds of geniuses primarily of the gentler sex.

Though we are partial to grand titles, such as Stalwart Aficionados and Grand Members of the Higher Echelons in the Studies of Literary Josei, deep down we know we’re just a bunch of manga geeks who like to look at pretty pictures.

If you like our projects, you might also like these scanlation groups:
Lovely Strange Dark – Scanlates obscure works, mainly josei, shoujo, and seinen, which are lovely, strange, or dark.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where does your team name (Stiletto Heels) come from?
A: We love a good pair of comfortable sneakers, but there’s no denying the appeal of high heels. Because they “inspire simultaneous fantasies of vulnerability (who can run in them?) and of the heel as weapon.” And, well, cause we think the name suits us very well.

Q: What projects do you work on here?
A: We like good stories, and they just happen to be mainly Josei. Not our fault.

Q: Are you accepting any suggestions for new projects to translate?
A: No, but if you’d like help on translating a chapter or two from Japanese to English, please email Hats at hatsoomeme@gmail.com.

Q: Where can I go to download your releases?
A: All of our downloads can be found on the Projects page.

Other notable facts: Everything you see here is free for your viewing pleasure. We ask that you purchase the manga you read when it becomes available in a language you’re able to read, and even if it’s in a language you can’t read, and please cease distribution after it becomes licensed! The creators retain all copyright, and they deserve all the dough (yep, even the cookie dough), ’cause Cookie Monster says so.

    I was wondering, what about if I want to translate one of your projects in another language? Can I get permission? Of course with all the credits and under your conditions.

    If you don’t mind my asking, what are all of the scanlating steps taken before the project is released?

    • Hatsumimi May 2, 2011 at 9:36 am

      Duckie, scanlating steps include: Scanning the raw mangas to be sent to a translator for translating and a raws prepper for prepping, which includes cropping/rotating/leveling the raws. After the preps are finished it is sent to a cleaner who removes the text/sfx, and then sent to a typesetter who creatively adds in the translations. It is then sent back to a quality-checker, who checks for mistakes. Hope that helps! 🙂

    No password is required to download from this site. Everything has been updated, so there shouldn’t be any issues. In the chance that you cannot download a project, please contact us through the team email.

    Hello! When I try to download Sukimasuki, it requests a password. I’ve been looking for one in your site but I haven’t found it. Do I need to register in somewhere or something like that?

    Thank you!

    Amanda, I just noticed that we’re blacklisted there. I actually gave permission to the admin at MF for our projects, though I requested that he enforce the 2 day waiting period for releases. If you’d like to upload them there, feel free to do so. 🙂

  9. Amanda March 12, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    You guys stated that were not allowed to host your manga on other site. Would it be ok to ask permission? i would like to upload the manga veins onto manga fox. Please reply backs. Thank you.

  10. Yukami November 6, 2009 at 8:10 am

    Hi guys,
    I started translating manga from English to my mothertounge and I’m interested in translating Sukimasuki, so I would like to have your permission to use your scans and translations.

    Hello! I’m the mangareader administrator from AnimeA (http://animea.net/) and we have a mangareader online (http://manga.animea.net/). I was wondering if you mind if we host your projects? We keep you credits, messages etc. (actualy the file is exactly how you release it) and we offer a link back to your site. Also, if you have/will make a donation box, we can post it on our site (we don’t have one and won’t have).
    For the joint projects the days waiting are still 4?

    *note: on AnimeA it’s not necessary to register or pay to download/read online manga or download anime.

    Regards, AA mangareader admin,

    • Mizi September 27, 2009 at 10:46 pm

      Yes. I upload to animea XD The group just likes people to ask and to wait the waiting period. I was going to add the manga we release, but now it’s no longer possible to add manga without so many posts, so I have not. I’ve uploaded Heart O Uchinomese and was going to add Sukimasuki– but I haven’t requested it to be added, if not, I would have uploaded it already.
