“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.

  • Hi there! I have been reading stiletto heels scanalations for a decade I think. I love all the work you do. I was wondering when will there be new releases for & by okazaki mari? Thank you for your hard work.

  • Dear Stiletto Heels group,
    I”m a member of a Vietnamese translation group and I’m a huge fan of Sekine-kun promect. There used to be a version of this manga in my mother tongue, but the translator suddenly dropped, and I was really disappointed. Then, I found your translation, which has cheered me up during the most stressful year I had ever suffered. Because of that, I want to share the rest of this unfinished manga to my friends and every fan of it in my country. I am writing this message to you in order to ask permission for using your scan translating Sekine’s love into my mother language. Thank you for spending your time reading this and I’m looking forward to your answer.

  • Hello Stiletto Heels group! I belong to the administration of a group of fansub in Spanish called “Royal Murders Fansub (RMF)”. Our group was created mainly to be able to finish of retranslating the manga “Principal” of Ikuemi Ryo into Spanish, whose permission of retranslation was originally granted to White Lies Fansub and they dropped the project more than a year ago.

    We kindly request your permission for our fansub to retranslate the manga from English to Spanish from chapter 12 to chapter 26. We would like to use your translation and scans. We assure you that we will keep all your credits and special pages, of course, and we will link it to your website!

    Without more we expect your approval to start working on the project.
    Thank you very much for your time.

    RMF Staff

    • Hi there,
      You have permission to re-translate into Spanish. I need to update the reader and site soon, but I’ll be sure to link you guys on our website when I do.

  • Hi, I don’t know if anyone asked this yet (and I am far too lazy to look through all 6 pages of comments), but who exactly are those people in your banner? Are they some JPop band? The guy on the right end looks cute, and everyone seems… interesting… Aha~ ^^

    • Hahaha, no problem, Helen. They’re a 7 member (5 boys and 2 girls) pop group. I listened to them during their debut, but didn’t really get into their music until post-Buzz Communication Tour, when they came out with “Still Love You.” I think that was when I became a raving fangirl.
      This song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3ndhKexgck

      Then came “Party It Up”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp7jFpkHpy4
      Then came “Miss You”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1YvVRGgnVI
      Then came “Koi Oto to Amazora”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_1t2Dkd2Io
      Then came the Eighth Wonder Concert Tour, and their “Kizuna Gasshuku” show on Youtube, and then the new summer song with the girls in the group leading the vocals, and now I am enslaved for good…

      You shouldn’t have got me started. Now I can’t stop!

      • Ahahaha, I was so curious though!! ♥ 😉

        Yesss, thanks for the recommendations! J-Pop has been dying on me lately for quite the years, so it’s always great to hear something new. 😀

        Thanks again! ♥


      • HOLY SH*T, THEY’RE CUTE AS FRICK. OMGOMGOMGOMG, LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO ME NOW… I just watched the first video, and I’m already dying, like, WHAAAAT. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

        Omg, I’ll be honest, it’s not easy to find cute, good-looking Japanese men these days (well, at least for me, that is), BUUUT OMG, THEY’RE ALL SO CUTE. I’m going crazy over Takahiro Nishijima, and Mitsuhiro Hidaka.~~~ ♥ I ship Nishijima with Misako thou~~ Not bad at all. 😀

        Ahhh, I swear, ALL their voices are sooo resonating and beautiful~~ I haven’t heard J-Pop in a while, and this amazes me to so many levels, ohgawsh. >//////<

        • I’m not sure what happened between Nishijima and Misako lately but they’re not as close as they used to be. Misako seems to get along with Shinjiro more, while I think the girl Nishijima is friendliest with in the group is Chiaki. You always see him grabbing her by the shoulders, making her sit in his lap, and messing around with her rather naturally. Unfortunately, I don’t think the girls in the group see him as a “guy.” Nishijima can be very feminine, and his male fans are known to say they want to marry him. Don’t get me wrong, he’s not gay or bisexual. But from my observations, he seems to struggle with depression and one-sided love affairs that borders on obsession.

          As for me, I totally ship Hidaka and Chiaki as friends if not lovers. Their chemistry together and the little tweets they occasionally send each other always give me the fuzzies. I love how she’s the only one he’s visibly nervous over being alone with. During Kizuna Gasshuku 2, when AAA went to the amusement park, Hidaka ended up holding Chiaki’s hand while running out of the Haunted Hospital, lol.

          Here they are in Singapore for their Kizuna Gasshuku 3 doing rock-paper-scissors to see who has to share rooms for the night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDHVa3snHyw

          An incomplete translation of the video:

          Uno beats Shuuta to get the single room. Chiaki can’t conceal her shock, and Hidaka jokes that she has to camp outside by herself.

          Naoya asks them to do another round for the time being, and it ends up being Nishijima-Shinjiro, Naoya-Shuuta, and Chiaki-Hidaka.

          Hidaka (putting a hand over Chiaki’s shoulder): Well, what’s gotta be gotta be.
          Shinjiro: Hey! Hey! You guys better not.
          Shuuta (wagging his finger): Yeah, you’d better not. Whatever it is, you’d better not.
          Chiaki pretends to cover herself, and Uno cracks up and asks her what’s that supposed to mean? Nishijima starts to say, “Ever since the first episode, you guys have been-“ but Naoya cuts him off with, “Hey, you guys need to stop that. Your ears are turning red for real.”

          Chiaki tries to explain that they’re embarrassed because they were seated right next to each other, while Hidaka can barely make eye contact with anyone at the table. Shinjiro tells them to stare into each other’s eyes.

          Shinjiro: Hidaka, look into each other’s eyes.
          Hidaka (not catching what he said): What?
          Misako: In five seconds, look into each other’s eyes. Pretend you’ll be sharing the same room.
          Hidaka points at Shinjiro: Why are you having so much fun?
          Chiaki: You’re having fun just because it doesn’t involve you, aren’t you?

          They force Hidaka and Chiaki to look into each other’s eyes.

          Hidaka: We’ll be sharing a room tonight, so please take care of me.
          Chiaki cracks up and buries her face in her hands, and Hidaka cracks up and covers his face.

          Hidachia/Dacchaki is my one weakness. (/ε\*) (/ε\*) (/ε\*) /fangirls

I’d like to upload some of your works to Batoto.net, and was simply asking for your permission first. A yes is fine, and a no is cool too, but I like to ask before indiscriminately uploading. Feel free to respond here or to my email with an answer.

    Of course, we´ll put a link to your fansub and we’ll provide proper credit.
    Our link is: http://gesshokufansub.blogspot.com/
    Thank you!

  • …sorry for this kind of insensitive comment, I know you all are busy as hell…
    but could you by any chance scanlate (or try, or save it for the future or something…) the manga ‘Girl in Heels’? There are raws up to volume 9 here: http://bishiehaven.blogspot.com/2009/04/korean-raws-girl-in-heels.html

    It’s okay to use them if BishieHaven is credited and you link back to their blog…

    And I will do my best to find the rest of the raws. v.v

    …yeah. so, I know this is pretty insensitive to ask… so sorry. but yeah, i kinda did it anyway. …sorry. yep.

    oh, and hang in there folks! thanks for your scans you crazy scanlation people! I swear you’re trying to kill yourselves with all the work you’re doing. =p

    oh… so maybe asking you guys to scanlate is a little… okay, CHANGE! can you try to see if ‘Girl in Heels’ is okay as a future project??? I just wanna make sure it doesn’t die. DX

    btdubs, thanks for reading this absurdly long comment. XD

    • Vic, you are tempting me with the whole “heels’ theme running through the title of the comic. Arrrrgh! I’ll make this short because I am super-duper-trooper busy wrapping up quality-checks for our anniversary week, and the answer is: Okay, on condition that we find a Korean translator for the project within 2 months.

      I’ll make a place for it on the website soon.

  • Hi !

    As Yukari, I wanted to know if I can get permission to translate Veins into french language, for the Soukai no Aoi french group.
    We will keep all your credits and special pages, of course, and link back to your web site!

    Thank you for your answer ♥

    • Yukari, you may have permission to retranslate Veins into French. However, the link to your website is not working. Once you have affiliated us, I’d like to add your group to our affiliates, so please let us know when it is back up and working.

  • Hi!

    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.

    • Please let us know which projects you are interested in and in which language you are going to translate. Thanks! 😀

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

    • 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! 🙂

  • Hello, unfortunately I need to discuss this with staff members who are comitted to both projects before giving permission. I hope you won’t mind waiting until then.

  • Hello group Stiletto Heels!
    I would like to retranslate into spanish Sekine’s Love and Tokyo Alice,
    I would like to use your translation and scans,
    We will not remove the credits.
    so I want your permission to use.
    Thank you very much, I await your response.
    Atte. Manga Oh Yeah!

  • 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. 🙂

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • *Title :* AnimeA
    *Site Link :* main site: http://www.animea.net/

    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).

    Regards, AA mangareader admin,

    • 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.
