777-Triple Seven- Phase 3: Party juseyo!

777-Triple Seven- Phase 3: Party juseyo!

Hello, I’m Hatsumi, better known as Hats/Hatsu/Mimi and Stiletto Heels’ machismo Admin slash Head Translator. In reality, I’m just an oddball who went to sleep with headphones and a pair of dusty New Balance sneakers on. If it wasn’t for that darn water bug that went stealth ninja mode in my bedroom!

Water bugs occasionally sneak into our house during the summer. One was crawling its way toward my bed. My ears still twitch from remembering the sound of it rustling over the loose mail that was scattered on the carpet. *rubs ears* When I turned on the lamp, it disappeared. When I turned it off, it creeped back. By the fourth time, to my horror, it was gone without a trace. I glanced at my alarm clock – 4 AM! My eyes were like washed up sandbags. I was drooping over the side of the bed from exhaustion. So as a precaution I shimmied my feet into my sneakers and put my headphones on to cover my ears and went to sleep. I figured it couldn’t burrow its way into my ears if I didn’t wake up, but if I did, I’d at least have my shoes on to stomp the hell out of it.

Yep, that’s me. And I’m supposed to be in charge of this team? Hah. More like everyone ELSE here is helping making me look like I’m doing a decent job. Thanks, Team.

Hello all!

I’m CanaryBlue, a newbie cleaner here at Stiletto Heels! I was given an opportunity to write for all you lovely people and so I thought I would talk about how I ended up here to create some sense of intimacy in this post. Feeling it yet?

I came across this gem of a scanlation group around the time chapter 6 of And by Okazaki Mari was released. I remember I was just scrolling through titles—beginning to feel a little bored with manga, but still determined to find a series to read—when I came across ‘&’. The title piqued my interest so I clicked in…and what I found seriously blew me away. An addicting plot, a heroine you can’t help but to root for, stunning artwork, and the amazing presentation by Stiletto Heels really tied everything together into one super-awesome enjoyable experience. Yes, I really stopped to admire how perfectly executed each chapter was!

A Person in Need

Hello there, I’m SwirlyOwl: one of SH’s cleaners. It will be short and sweet since all of you guys want to read those chapters right away, right? *winks*

I was working on one of the hottest days of the year. I remember thinking to myself, why me? Why do I have to suffer like this? I was driving in a car with no air-conditioning, with no fan, and I knew I was slowly dehydrating even through I drank like 4 bottles of water for the past hour. I drove and drove, and slowly, I was sweating through all of my clothes.

I was near one of the houses when a person, an elderly man, came out with a bottle of water, he noticed how tired and dehydrated I was. I thanked him profusely and knew at that point we would be buddies.

Here’s to you, my water boy.

A Different Kind of March Madness

A Different Kind of March Madness

After my car failed smog, I’ve been commuting to work on my Citizen Tokyo. Twelve gloriously haphazard miles, round trip, through the urban jungle. Hear that neon orange doohicky squeaking down the sidewalk at 6:30 in the morning? Yep, that would be me. Debris pelting my face? No problem. Rain? Hah! Cat-calls from men I pass by? Don’t even hear ’em. Canines turned on by the sight of my spinning, sparkly wheels? (Snorts.) Nearly being mowed down by wild motorists and distracted moms pulling out of driveways? You make me laugh!

Short and Sweet

I know I could probably come up with a better post if I tried. But seriously, all I want to do right now is curl up into a fetus position on the couch and cradle my aching tooth. Damn you, freaking delicious peach cobblers and razzleberry pies!

It’s Our Party And We’ll River Dance If We Want To!

It’s Our Party And We’ll River Dance If We Want To!

Dear Friends, Lurkers, and Stalkers alike (especially you Stalkers), July 31st is the night where we Heelians gather together as pustules of excitement to commemorate five years of “sloth-paced” industriousness. With releases, yes, but more importantly, with many thanks to you, the readers, and especially the wonderful staff here at Stiletto Heels.

Can you believe that five years ago, on July 24th, we nearly gave up the idea of keeping up the group? /waits for the collective screaming to subside.

We did a bit of tug-of-war with another group over Oboreru Knife, but lost our bearings under the galvanizing pressure of their kind admin’s glowing halo. However, little did we know that this ill-timed scrapping of a shoujo project proved to be a blessing in disguise, as Stiletto and I next turned our rapacious, roving eyes toward the treasure trove of untapped Josei. /wipes drool

Stiletto: Gee, Mimi, what do you want to do tonight?
Mimi: The same thing we do every night, Stiletto – try to take over the world!
Stiletto picks up a tanko and pretends to smash it over Mimi’s head. Unfortunately it was George Asakura’s Oboreru Knife, a sober reminder of their failure to secure a decent project.
Mimi (fingering the dust jacket): What about her other project – Heart o Uchinomese?
Curtain opens and the angels start to sing, bathing Mimi in a swatch of soft light.

Well, it wasn’t exaaaactly like that, but a week later, on July 31, 2009, we were bringing bra-snapping Josei goodness to the world in the form of Negishi: Our very first release (Does it count that she’s only in middle school?)

Every year – and I really mean it – every year that I try to do something special for the anniversary, something bad happens. Like the year I decided to secretly trim the money tree into the shape of two hands “raising the roof,” or the year I had to break up the releases into two days because we couldn’t finish everything in time, or last year, when the release was a day late! This year proved no different.

I ordered a heel-shaped cookie cutter (lame idea), so that I could bake chocolate-filled pastries for the staff. The cookie cutter never came. (Curse you, Ebay!) Determined not to lose out, I ended up using heart-shaped cookie cutters over a bit of leftover pastry dough. I had enough to make one – uno, ichi, ein – heart-shaped pastry. mygifttoyou(Oh mah gah, so lame!) But after it was finished baking and left to cool, my nephew nabbed it off the counter and ate it while I was busy abusing my eyes over a thank you card for the Balancing Toy staff.

It would have been delicious, I kid you not. I can’t bake for crap, but it would have been! /so unconvincing.

So my lovely girls and guys at Heels – lurkers, readers, stalkers, and staffers, alike – never mind that the anni gift was a big failure (lame!), that I’m too frikkin’ tired to make a decent anni card (lame!), and that I forgot the date until very last minute (lame!).

The releases are just a click away. Go get ’em.
