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.

Life's a Beach!

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.

Tea Time is for Everyone!

We managed to get Mizutama Honey Boy chapter 11 out within another couple of days, so hopefully it won't be long before the volume is complete.

It took us a little longer than we would have liked, but here's Mizutama Honey Boy chapter 10 at about halfway through the 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.
