I’d just like to clarify that this site is completely abandoned and I have no intention of continuing to scanlate Hadashi de Bara wo Fume, especially as Viz are doing such a great job with it and releasing quickly too. From what I’ve seen most of the recent scanlations are not so great and I’ve had people ask me to start scanlating it again, but I don’t want to and even if I did, there are no decent scans in Japanese available. I think this is a good reason for you to buy the English volumes from Viz. I’ve deleted all the files from mediafire (so all download links found here will be invalid) and I hope that you will support the mangaka and buy the official volumes.
I am still in scanlation working at my old “group” (a solo operation now ^^) at Shoujo Yume if you’d like to see what I’m up to.
That’s right, Hadashi is returning from hiatus. Chapter 32 will be published in Margaret magazine on January 4th.
What does this mean for our scanlations? Not a lot, actually. For those who have been looking at the raws/reading the LQ releases of other people, you’ll probably be able to find Chinese raws of the chapter online soon after its publication, perhaps even in Japanese, but we’re not scanlating from LQ scans. We are, as I have said many times, going to wait until Volume 5 comes out, and do it all in HQ then. We don’t know when Volume 5 comes out, nor when somebody will scan it and upload it to the internet, so we don’t know when we’re going to be able to release more chapters yet.
PLEASE, if you have questions LOOK THROUGH THE OLD POSTS! It is very, VERY likely your answer is sitting there somewhere, and to be honest I’m tired of answering the same questions over and over again. If you’ve looked for an answer to your question and not found an answer, or have any other reason to contact us, please email us at:
x.samui and I are very busy what with Christmas and exams coming up, and of course school takes a priority here, so we might not update for a while. Please be patient with us until Volume 5 comes out and don’t go too crazy waiting for Jan 4th!! Happy holidays, everyone.

Hadashi has not returned yet. It’s not in the current issue of Margaret, nor the next issue. (Please use the links to see for yourself – you will need Japanese language support installed if you want to look at the dates – basically just look around for any pictures of Hadashi or the Japanese title, 裸足でバラを踏め. If it’s not there, you know Hadashi won’t be in that issue.
You can also see when the next issue will be out by looking at the upper right corner. (It’s about 2 weeks between each issue). To the right of where it says “No 22 (or whatever the issue number is)”, there is the date for when the issue will be out, and thus when the website will be updated to show what’s in the issue after that. １０月２０日 simply means the 20th day of the 10th month (October!). See, Japanese isn’t too hard, huh?
x.samui and I have decided we will not be picking up another project because we’re waaaay too busy. (It’s a bit cruel to only release a chapter every few months ^^) But we’ll keep you updated on Hadashi and will carry on with it when it’s back from hiatus.

Nothing happening at the moment. Hadashi is not back from hiatus yet, (at least, it’s not in the current nor next issue of Margaret magazine), hundreds of people seem to be scanlating the chapters I’ve said I’m not doing until volume 5 comes out (and tbh at this point I’ve just given up; at least I hadn’t already started work on these chapters like c27), and I’m still getting suggestions for new projects that don’t meet the criteria I set, and people throwing me links to chinese raws despite the fact I’ve said a trillion times I’m not going to work from them.
EDIT: to clarify, I never meant I’m giving up on scanlating Hadashi, I meant I’ve given up flaming people who’ve been scanlating the chapters in LQ, like c28 and c29, since there’s nothing I can do about it. I will still scanlate these chapters in HQ when volume 5 comes out. Let me just make it clear that though I may concede defeat in terms of LQ chapters (as many have said, they’re not trying to “compete” with me, just as I was not trying to compete with Starry Heaven before they dropped the series), Hadashi is still my project and I will not be at all happy should anyone scanlate future chapters in HQ. It’s called common courtesy and, though I’m not surprised to find so many people lacking it on the internet, it seems to be to my misfortune that all those people seem to be fans of Hadashi, and all seem to suffer from some insatiable impatience for this manga.
Anyway, here are the reasons why I am not picking up any of the project suggestions:
Tail of the Moon
Viz released all 15 volumes of it already, I’ve got them all lined up in my room, so it would just be a waste of time. Sorry if you can’t get them where you are but I’ve got no interest in scanlating this.
Viz already started publishing this too, and I don’t like the series much anyway.
As some other sensible person pointed out, this project is far from dead (Aerandria Scans and Midnight Scans just released a chapter recently) and I’m not that fond of it anyway. Aerandria + Midnight are doing a great job so go read their releases.
Again, being published by Viz, I have no interest in scanlating this. I don’t like it that much anyway.
Her Majesty’s Dog
Go!Comi already finished publishing this one too.
This manga is a bit of a meh.
I’m not actually that much against scanlating a licensed series, but only if I like the series a lot and preferably if no books have been published in English yet (just like Hadashi.)
Anyway, series I haven’t made a judgement on include Ryo and Chou yo Hana yo, I haven’t read these yet.
I’ll keep you updated.
