You Are Who You Are!

And now we come to the end of Shounen Oujo volume 4 with chapters 24 and 25, which we luckily were able to get done before the end of the year, as this will be our last release of 2015.

This is one of our most beloved series, and we hope that shows from all the work we put into the chapters, and how quick we're able to release the chapters once a volume comes out, which unfortunately is not all that often. Although there is no way to predict at this point when exactly the next volume comes out, seeing as how only two additional chapters have been released online, our tentative prediction is that volume 5 will come out sometime in 2016, possibly as early as August, or as late as November. However, if the manga ends with the next volume, it could be out as early as say June, but we'll see when we get there in six months.

As some final comments for the year, 2015 was probably the most transformative year we've had. When we started the year, we were still doing most of the series we had picked up over the past couple of years, but now most of those same series are all completed. Of all our major projects, there are only three left that predate any projects we picked up in 2015: Kuragehime, Shounen Oujo and Bokura no Hentai. The oldest pickup after that for our major projects is Boy Skirt, which we only started a year ago. So, while our projects have largely changed over the past year, our spirit and drive as a scanlation group is still going strong, and above all else, we are still primarily focused on gender bender series, more than any other group out there, as far as we know.

So we all hope you had a wonderful 2015, and that our releases helped you kill some time along the way. Please have a Happy New Year, and we'll see you all promptly on New Year's Day!

So Foul a Sky Clears Not Without a Storm!

So now that Bokura no Hentai chapter 37 and volume 9 are done, that leaves us with a relatively short wait until the 10th and final volume comes out, which we have now confirmed will be on March 12th (we had originally hoped for February). An interesting note about this chapter is that it was published in Comic Ryu's 100th issue, as alluded to with the title page (and another page in this chapter).

If It's Too Good to Be True...

Merry Christmas Eve (although it could also already be Christmas depending on where you live)! Today we have Shounen Oujo chapter 23, and we just might be able to finish the volume before the end of the year if we're lucky. But first comes the end of Bokura no Hentai v09.

Love is Merely a Madness!

Bokura no Hentai chapter 36 is done, leaving one more to go in the volume, and perhaps more crucially, just five chapters left in the series. All I want for Christmas is an anime announcement.

Information is Worth Its Weight in...Cross-dressing?

We've now reached the middle of the volume with Shounen Oujo chapter 22. In related news, although chapter 27 was just released on Comic It's website last week, it's taking a break next month, which of course means the release of volume 5 just got pushed back a month, whenever that may be. Obviously, it would appear that hiatuses, even short ones, still accompany this series, which does not bode well for a sooner rather than later release of volume 5. At this point, no more hiatuses would mean a release around the middle of 2016, but that's probably very unlikely. But although you can keep that in mind for later, there's still another three chapters left in this volume to get to, at least.

The Fairest Flowers of the Season!

After about four months, Bokura no Hentai starts up again with chapter 34 at the start of volume 9. This is actually the second to last volume, since the manga's last chapter is about to be published in Comic Ryu in less than a week. However, a listing for volume 10 has yet to appear on Amazon, and since it would probably already be there if it was coming out in January, it's more likely that the last volume will be out in February. But for now, please look forward to the rest of volume 9.

The Water is Always Bluer!

771 days. That is how long it's been since we released a chapter from Shounen Oujo, a series that we have now been working on for almost four years on and off, and yet have only three completed volumes and the current fourth volume to show for it. Why? Because this series, more than any other we've done, has been plagued by hiatuses almost since it began, not to mention taking a full two years off and then changing magazines earlier this year when it reappeared in Comic it in February.

To better put in perspective just how long it's been, since we finished volume 3 back in October 2013, we as a scan group have started and completed seven series (Kakukaku Shikajika, Oto Koi, Kyou Kara Yonshimai, Nisekoi Boyfriend, Full Dozer, Stop!! Hibari-kun!, and Hana wa Nisemono) and completed another five series we were already doing at the time (Himegoto, Josou Shounen, Sweet Magic Syndrome, Kenjutsu Komachi, and Usotsuki Lily, plus an assortment of series from Waai/Mahalo). In fact, of the series we are currently still doing, only two of our major projects that we were doing at the time still have yet to be completed (Kuragehime and Bokura no Hentai).

So Shounen Oujo is as much a part of our past as it is our present and future whenever a new volume comes up, as one did last month. In the end, we are very pleased to say something we have been dying to say for over two years now: Shounen Oujo chapter 20 is finished at the start of volume 4. In the chapter, there is a change in the spelling of a previously minor character's name, originally rendered as Shellvon, but this has been changed to Shelwon. Other than that, everything else is the same, including the massive amount of love we pour into this series to make reading it as enjoyable, and as close to it's original ambiance, as possible. So please enjoy as we once again work on this incredible series.

And as one more additional piece of news, Shounen Oujo is reportedly getting a two-volume drama CD series next year with Natsuki Hanae as Albert, Takahiro Sakurai as Guy, Takuma Terashima as Theodore, and Daisuke Hirakawa as Olivier. Based on these characters, and the fact that Alexia is not present, we can assume it's essentially going to adapt scenes from volume 2, and maybe also volume 3, but we'll have to wait and see.

Next up, the start of Bokura no Hentai v09.

A Voice is a Terrible Thing to Waste!

It took a lot of work getting this out, but we're finally able to present chapter 1 of Norio Tsukudani's new series Heroine Voice! The first chapter is a massive 65 pages long and contains a few color pages at the beginning, in addition to being on the cover of Comic Rex. The story is as follows:

Ever since she was in fifth grade, Otome Yamada has longed to be a heroine in a play. This led her to join the drama club upon entering high school, but because of her unusual, anime-sounding voice, she has only ever been a stagehand. Undeterred, she tries to go to an audition for a play, but accidentally ends up at a recording studio for an anime series. Although she gets thrown out after unknowingly getting in the way of the recording, a talent agent impressed by her performance offers her a job as a voice actress. Spurred on by her dream, she eventually accepts the offer, leading her to be in a voice actress unit with the popular Suzu Ayase.

Just so you know, this is not gender bender related whatsoever. The second chapter, which has already been revealed to be 58 pages long, will come out at the end of the month, so we'll be working on it monthly as we did with Himegoto before. Also, a big thanks goes to NJMANGA of Deus Ex Scans for continuing to provide us the raws as he did with Himegoto.

Next up, the latest Yuri na Watashi chapter before finally diving into Shounen Oujo and Bokura no Hentai.

Remember to Follow Your Heart...and Your Stomach!

Finally, after a week of toiling away, we're done with the last bit of Full Dozer. The bonus content consists of three small chapters revolving around Nina, which also offers a bit of an epilogue to the story, and there's also a few pages of Ayumi Komura's afterword.

In the end, this series probably didn't have everything we were hoping it would have after having done Usolily, but Ayumi Komura is still a very unique author, and Full Dozer was a short but sweet series we enjoyed working on over the past year, in which had quite a few of our series end. This also marks the first time we've completed three series by a single author. We look forward to continuing to work on Mori no Takuma-san when the first volume comes out early next year (chapter 4 is about to be published in Margaret in a few days).

But for now, our next release will be chapter 1 of Norio Tsukudani's new series Heroine Voice, but it is a very long chapter, so it'll take a little while for it to get it out, but please look forward to it.

The Road to Happiness is a Rocky One!

 All right, so after a bit of more work, here are Full Dozer chapter 15, 16 and 17, the last three chapters in the series. The only thing left to do is the bonus content, which takes up 53 pages, about a quarter of the volume. It's length, content, and the fact that Thanksgiving is almost here means it might be about a week before we finish the volume.

However, right after we finish Full Dozer, we'll be starting on the first chapter of Norio Tsukudani's new series Heroine Voice, which we should have by early next week. The next chapter of Yuri na Watashi also comes out next week, so we'll also be doing that shortly thereafter. Once those two chapters are done, then we'll get to Shounen Oujo and Bokura no Hentai. We will be getting to other projects (Ookami Shounen, Sakura no Sono) as soon as we can.

Tough Love is Never Easy!

We're back after about a week of silent toiling to release Full Dozer chapters 13 and 14 from the third and last volume in the series. There are still three main chapters left to go, and then some bonus extras at the end of the volume.

On an unrelated note, Comic Ryu just announced that the next issue will contain the last chapter of Bokura no Hentai, so volume 10 will be the final volume, and it will probably be released in January. As we said, we'll be working on v09 soon.

When Have Skirts Ever Been Unlucky?

Happy Friday the 13th! We are pleased to present Boy Skirt chapter 6 at the end of volume 1. Since the manga has only just recently restarted its serialization in Miracle Jump last month, it will be a while until volume 2 is released, probably about 5 or 6 months. That is, as long as this manga doesn't go on another hiatus.

Next up is Full Dozer v03. We're still waiting for these 4 volumes to arrive: Bokura no Hentai v09, Sakura no Sono v02, Ookami Shounen v02 and Shounen Oujo v04. We'll be working on those over the course of December and January.

Who Needs Skirts When You Have Swimsuits?

First of all, sorry about the delay getting this out. Boy Skirt chapter 4 is done, and hopefully, we'll be done with the volume by the end of this week. As a side note to this chapter, Ochi and Izumi are playing a hand game on page 2 that you might not be aware of, so if you're confused at what they're doing, see this helpful link.

There's More to a Skirt Than Just Looking Cute!

I hope you're ready for more, because Boy Skirt chapter 3 is already finished, which marks the halfway point of the volume, and the initial run of the serialization before the long hiatus. It seems that they waited to put out the volume until the manga would restart in Miracle Jump, which was in the latest issue on October 20 (the volume came out the day before). At any rate, we hope that's the last time we hear the word hiatus in regard to this series, unlike two of our other series which have been plagued by hiatuses for a while (Shounen Oujo and Kuragehime). But anyway, more Boy Skirt is soon to follow.

Skirts: The Ultimate Weapon!

Finally, the long, long wait is over as we finally get back to Boy Skirt since we released the first chapter way back at the beginning of the year. Due to this manga being on hiatus for about six months, this volume was delayed by at least four or five months, but I assure you, the wait has been worth it if you liked what you saw from chapter 1.

In addition to releasing chapter 2, we also have a v2 for chapter 1 which includes the stuff from the volume, including the covers, title page and table of contents; the chapter itself remains unchanged except for some edits on the last page to bring it in line with the volume release. The volume itself is huge (210 pages, about as big as the largest Usolily volumes) and is already hard to get on Amazon, so it looks like it's already in its second printing.

Just Between Friends!

Starting off November, we have a very short, bonus chapter of Yuri na Watashi this month, probably because Jin Mokoyama had to devote some time to working on the first volume which comes out in a couple of days. Next up is Boy Skirt.

Can't Keep a Good Bear Down!

Happy Halloween! We've been absent for about a week, but we have been quite busy over the past few days working on chapter 1 of our newest project Mori no Takuma-san by Ayumi Komura. This is also a bit of a 5th anniversary project for us, since it was 5 years ago that we started Usotsuki Lily, so it's perfect that we can celebrate five years as a scanlation group by starting another manga by Ayumi Komura. The first chapter features the color spread shown above and another 50 pages.

The story follows Karin Sakuma, a 16-year-old girl whose idealized standards for the perfect guy have left her without ever having a boyfriend. This importance on how something looks even extends to things she buys, often without practicality in mind.

One day, Karin's mom sets her up on a blind date with Takuma Morino, a guy who satisfies all of her requirements, but she later discovers that he is also overweight. Although Karin doesn't initially recognize him, she and Takuma had once played together as kids, during which time Takuma developed feelings for Karin and asked her to marry him, to which she nonchalantly agreed. Although he asks her to marry him again, she turns him down, but Karin later tells Takuma that she wants to spend more time with him to see what will come of it.

As when we did this for Full Dozer, we are going to wait until the first volume is released to continue it, which should be sometime early next year either in March or April. In the meantime, the last volume of Full Dozer came out, and we'll be working on that as soon as it's feasible, which means sometime in November. Next up, though, is the latest chapter of Yuri na Watashi, released just a couple days ago.

You Can't Just Have One!

All right, with the release of this bonus chapter of Mizutama Honey Boy, the third volume comes to an end, meaning there will be about a 6 month wait until volume 4 comes out, which will probably be in April.

In the meantime, our next release will be chapter one of Ayumi Komura's new series Mori no Takuma-san, which we'll have in a few days (the magazine issue ships soon). Around the time we release that, the next chapter of Yuri na Watashi comes out, so we'll do that before finally starting on Boy Skirt volume 1 right at the end of the month.

Sorry for the wait. Here's chapter 12 of Mizutama Honey Boy, and it's the last main chapter from the volume, so the main story will continue when the fourth volume is released next year. But for now, there is still one more bonus chapter from this volume.

You Can Train Your Body, but You Can't Train Your Heart!

After a short hiatus, we're back with Mizutama Honey Boy chapter 8 at the start of volume 3! And what's more, although we're a few days late because of when this volume came out, Hachimitsu Scans has now been in operation for five years as of last Monday. Yes, it was October 5, 2010 when we had our first release, chapter 1 of Past Future. Since then, we've had over 900 individual releases across dozens and dozens of series, most of which we've completed. Also, we just happened to have our 3 millionth hit to this blog about a week ago on October 3, and there's still a lot more to come.

As we have said, later this month Boy Skirt v01 and Full Dozer v03 come out, along with the first chapter of Ayumi Komura's new series, Mori no Takuma-san, which we tweeted about a few days ago. And we finally have some updates for some of our other series getting volumes in November. First it's Sakura no Sono v02 on the 6th, then Bokura no Hentai v09 on the 13th, followed by the long-awaited second volume of Ookami Shounen on the 14th, and the long-overdue fourth volume of Shounen Oujo on the 20th. And although it's not confirmed yet, Norio Tsukudani's new series will probably premiere in the issue of Rex being released on November 27. In the meantime, she's been posting some new Himegoto illustrations and selfies on Twitter. We're gonna be pretty busy throughout the rest of the year with all of that, so please look forward to what the rest of 2015, and the start of 2016, have yet to offer.

Love Strikes When You Least Expect It!

We're back again with Yuri na Watashi to Akuma na Kanojo (?) chapter 5 today. Our next release, the start of Mizutama Honey Boy v03, may not be out until late next week, because the volume comes out on October 5th.

In semi-unrelated news, Norio Tsukudani's next series will probably start in the Comic Rex issue released in late November, unless it gets delayed. In other semi-unrelated news, Kuragehime is reportedly nearing its end, and if we are correct in thinking v16 will be the final volume, it'll probably be released as early as December.

Cross-dressing Lives On!

All right, so here are the last seven one-shots from the Himegoto Comic Anthology. Of note are two authors who contributed to Josou Shounen: Kinu Arikawa (the author of Made in Otome) and Emiri (the author of Josou Debut and a few other one-shots).

Our next release will be the latest chapter of Yuri na Watashi when it comes out in a few days.

Cross-dressing Never Sleeps!

We took a couple days off after finishing up Josou Shounen, but now we're moving on to another small project before we get really busy next month. These are the first three one-shots from the Himegoto Comic Anthology, a single volume that came out about a year ago containing 15 one-shots based on Himegoto. All of them are very short, and although some are better than others, we hope you enjoy a few more stories about these characters.
