Avelys – Raw Provider, Typesetter, Quality Checker
A girl with a passion for everything shoujo. Other interests include watching movies, anime, K-dramas and reading books. Currently planning to take over the shoujo world and rule them all with her partner in shoujo life, Candy. Started reading shoujo manga after watching the atrocity that is Itazura na kiss anime and hoped to find the romance she desperately needed. Almost gave up on anime but shoujo saved her life so she repays this favor every day by reading every shoujo that is released (or tries to). Overall friendly person so don’t be shy and ask her for recommendations.
DNJS – Translator
Amazing human being! Dedicated to our team, she started off translating every single series at the very beginning. We thank our lucky stars to be working with her. Her love for shoujo/josei rivals the SH admins and she has the largest collection of manga. Envy enducing. So approachable and sweet, you can talk to her about anything. A great listener and always giving the best advice, she is just a pleasure to work with. In her spare time she translates manga on otakumole to give you undeserving addicts a dose of shoujo. SH Scans would be nothing without her. WE LOVE YOU <3
Sparks – Translator
Cute, warm and hard working, Sparks (known as stfusparks on otakumole) is known for her HQ speed translations. Super hard working and on top of her stuff, she is the epitome of efficiency. She likes to karaoke with the staff on Saturdays and takes singing very seriously. She is a huge sucker for pretty art, badass/tough heroine and tsundere male leads.
Souka – Translator/Tech Guy
The chef of the shoujohearts staff, Souka always sends us pictures of his latest creations. When he’s not cooking and learning about new recipes, he’s training for his cycling competition and practicing his many instruments (piano, violin, guitar and cello). A perfectionist and detail oriented, he’s always putting 100% of effort into whatever task he’s assigned. He is familiar with: Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese and Vietnamese. He is currently the admin of Matteiru Scans. His catchphrase is “ya betsuni” and saying your name 20 times during a conversation.
Chane – Translator/Proofreader
Chane likes to read literature, listen to great music and loves getting different nicknames. Currently going by ‘Chanel’. She’s a speedy translator who loves helping out different groups. She’s currently helping Summer Rain and Phoenix Serenade. You can find her translations on Otakumole, although helping scanlation groups has cut down on her time on OM. She likes josei and shoujo but has low tolerance for dumb female leads!
Pon – Proofreader
He has a weakness for cute and adorable. Despite being friendly and easy to talk to, an edgelord lies beneath. The eternal diplomat, Pon will always find a way to understand everybody’s position, especially during an argument. Not one to demean both parties, he usually becomes the mediator. He is very attached to his violin, so much so that he only cried during 12 years a slave when a violin was being destroyed. Favorite animu is Azudaioh. He hates bad shoujo and butterflies. He has a huge crush on Nic Cage
and PoeticJustice. Favorite emoticon is: :^)
Retired Staff Members
Thank you for all your work. You will always hold a place in our hearts.
SickeninglySweet/Candy – Cleaner and Quality Checker
The sassiest shoujo addict around, if you don’t be careful she will make you her personal slave. Hardworking and always giving 100% she is the other half of the beating heart that is Shoujo Hearts. Don’t let her yandere tendencies fool you, she is actually the sweetest and most loyal girl around. At first she looked down on manga but succumbed to the insatiable pull that is the genre. Her favorites include horror, josei and stories with smart female leads. She usually roots for the underdog and the male love rival that always loses.
Crobemeister – Redrawer, Cover Page Colorist
Our savior, he always magically makes stuff on the page disappear. Amazing artist and always on top of his duties. He makes our pages look better and re-drawer extraordinaire. Super friendly, constantly optimistic and fun to talk to. He enjoys watching anime in his spare time and playing games. His talents include being awesome, being good at photoshop, magician, and being awesome. He has a bachelor degree in Animation. Favorite anime include: K-ON, Bakemonogatari and Samurai X Trust & Betrayal (which is an excellent OVA–go check it out).
Snaxia – Proofreader
One of the loveliest people we know. She’s a review moderator on MAL. She works during the day and plays Smite at night. Enjoys watching movies and reading. Currently aspiring to be a shoujo manga addict. Funny, smart and a great listener are just a few characteristics to describe how amazing she is. She’s always trying to get connect four emoticons on skype but alas the struggle is real. Her fave anime is Steins;Gate. Don’t ever mess with her or speak badly about her friends or she will set you straight.
Aryl – Translator/Typesetter
Super fun to talk to, Aryl has a warm and kind personality. She likes to game in her spare time and translate. Very hard working and dedicated. She loves Iketani manga (who can blame her?) and stories with great characters. She was intially translating on Otakumole until Avelys kidnapped her. She leaves the most adorable comments in her script which make our proofreaders chuckle. She is also obsessed with cats!
Phanzanu – Typesetter/Redrawer
A typesetting veteran, she has been helping prettify our projects! With a great eye for aesthetics, patience to explain and super fun personality–she has dazzled us all. She worked for J-SIS scans and has years of experience with typesets. She p
