Summer is a coming~ Hu hu hu ♪|´∀`)ノ

I spent summers as a child, sitting cross-legged on our cramped balcony in Apartment B, chewing on watermelon and spitting the seeds over the railing onto unsuspecting neighbors. My older sister would be draped over the side of our shared bed like a dainty, Victorian princess, while my younger brother would have his fleshy cheeks pressed into the metal railing, concentrating with deadly focus on the trajectory of seeds. That, I believed, was the way to squander a perfect summer vacation: Sitting Indian-style on the balcony, shooting watermelon seeds like missiles out of my mouth.

One time, this seedy missile landed – PLOP! – on the back of our apartment manager’s neck. He stopped, pressed the back of his hand to his nape, and swiping forward, realized what it was that had flown at him at lightning speed. I flattened myself on the balcony, but my dumb, baby brother still had his chubby cheeks kissing the railing and was giggling like a maniac!

So I spent my summers getting a rap on the knuckles with chopsticks as well. Ah, those were the days!

Speaking of summer, we’ll be celebrating our 7th year anniversary in July. Team Heels is working especially hard to make this year one that you will find hard to forget. That means some of your favorites will probably make more than just a short cameo. ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

Currently in the works is the complete Volume 2 of Tsukikage Baby and the last chapters of Futago and Sekine’s Love. As well as a new historical project by Natsume Ono called “Futagashira”, thanks to Minelauva’s prodding. Among other things~

See you then!

[Releases after the cut.]

Nothing makes you think more about your own wedding (or lack of) than someone else’s wedding. It’s enough to bring me to tears.

When you become a teacher at your alma mater, you meet a student who looks like your old flame. When you meet a student who looks like your old flame, you stalk him. When you stalk him, you find his underwear left behind. When you find his underwear left behind, you get tempted to snatch it. When you get tempted to snatch it, Minelauva suspects you are a perv. And when Minelauva suspects you are a perv, it takes Hatsumi 670 days to release the next chapter…

OK, Makoto needs to get a freaking medal for being such an adorable kid. Oh my gaaaawd. And this chapter was laboriously typed by a wonderful new staff member. Without further ado, I’d like to officially welcome jyuu viole grace to the team!

    Hello! Thank you for the release of Otoko no Isshou. Hoping for more releases, I’m really hyped to know the ending of it since a few years ago. Thank you!

    Hello! I was hoping if you could finish scanlating the Otoko no Isshou? 🙁 Thank you!

      We have a staffing problem for this project. Not many people want to work on it. Megan finished cleans for Ch’s 11-12 though, so you will see them soon. Volume 3 has been scanned as well. Hopefully we find a permanent editor for the last volume. Please help us spread the word around!

    I’ve been waiting for an update of futago for so long! Thank you for updating it rather than dropping the translation <3 you guys are the best!

    Thank you for all these updates! I’ve been catching up! So excited for more Tsukikage Baby and Futagashira!!!!

    Loved reading more Heartbroken Chocolatier–can’t wait to see where that story goes. Also loved Otoko no Isshou! I’ve been enjoying that one since the beginning!! This chapter made me sad though! I need more! XD

    I still need to catch up on some other releases, but I wanted to say thank you! You guys are the best and this is my favorite scan group! <3

      Opy you are always “catching up” whenever I hear from you LOL. But I guess having a family makes it tough to cram in your hobbies into such a tight schedule. Have fun reading. Will see you again on our Anniversary month, I hope! 🙂

    Thanks a lot whole-hearted for your inexhaustible eagerness. I’m waiting open arms for your Tsukikage Baby. 😀

    Thank you for translating Kodama Yuki’s works!! I’m looking forward to reading more Tsukikage Baby <3

    About Omi Sensei: is it still ongoing in Japan, complete or discontinued? MU says the latter, but I’d like to confirm before I try it.

    Really excited to have news about Futagashira! I like Ono Natsume’s non-BL works.

    • hats99 June 2, 2016 at 8:37 am

      It has been discontinued but Volume 1 has its own complete arc, so we still plan on finishing it.

      • Real-Admiral June 2, 2016 at 9:22 am

        Aw, that’s a shame.

        Thanks for the info!

        • hats99 June 2, 2016 at 3:49 pm

          Yeah it is unfortunate. 🙁 Some Japanese readers were worried that something like this would happen if she were to publish with Big Comic Spirits. Their predictions 5 years ago did come true, but I still think this story was worth reading. She’s moved onto other projects but I’m crossing my fingers she’ll find a new home for Ohmi someday.

    special thank you for Omi Sensei; I’m happy that you continue translate this flattering story

    With summer coming, I’ll be making sure my fridge will always be stocked with iced tea and that I’ll eat at least one ripe, juicy peach over my kitchen sink.

    Thank you for the releases! Mostly I’m excited for Otoko no Issho, since I can get my oyaji-crush fix. Thank you, jyuu viole grace! Welcome to the Stiletto Heels family!

    • hats99 June 2, 2016 at 10:36 am

      Mmm iced tea and peaches over the kitchen sink. It’s nearly in the triple digits here. Phew~ That imagery is enough to cool me down. Hope you stay cool as much as you can and don’t forget to visit us again in July ya hear?!

    Thank you for all of these goodies! Your hard work is most appreciated! I also agree with Chamsoulmiyah above! I enjoy your writing, too. It is always so nice to read–quite pleasant. Thanks!

  12. mi June 1, 2016 at 10:14 am

    GAAAAWDDDDDDDDDDD when i saw the omi-sensei update…. love you guys…..

  13. Chamsoulmiyah June 1, 2016 at 8:03 am

    Thank you for your hard work. By the way, I love your writing style, I always enjoy reading your posts, I find them so beautiful, yet simple (in a good way). Subtle, that’s the word. At least it is in French (not sure in English). My favourite. “Subtil”. I’m a fan, if you ever write a book (or if you already have, if not I think you should), I would love to read it.
    Enfin, I love your team and your work, it’s so neat, you always make my day.
    Keep up the good work. Merci.

    • hats99 June 2, 2016 at 3:53 pm

      Oh thank you. That is too sweet. I do write, but the novel in progress has been stalled for years haha. I plan to make little comic strips for the team, so perhaps someday soon you’ll get to read them. 🙂

      • Chamsoulmiyah June 3, 2016 at 9:00 am

        Oh that would be great !! Can’t wait for it . Concerning your novel, it may be hard, but I’m sure the result would be stunning .

    Thank you for the second chapter of Omi Sensei; I wasn’t sure if I would ever get to read it!
