Here is the new chapter. Sorry for the delay, as I just got back from vacation. I'll be making any necessary edits later, since I might have forgotten how to do things around here xD
The next release will be scheduled for January 5th. See you soon!
After a nice break with short stories, we are now beginning a new volume! Here is the first chapter. We're making our way through the series, slowly but surely :P
The next release will be on December 1st.
Hope you have all been well. In (a sort of late) celebration of 1000 likes on Facebook, Monica and I have decided to release the rest of Book 22. Yay!
It might get a tad confusing, so I’ll break it down below:
The next release will be on November 3rd. Happy reading, and see you on Book 23!

Happy first day of September :) We're finally starting a new volume, which is comprised of short stories ("short"... they're actually pretty long for the translators over here lol). They're quite cute, so it'll be a nice break from all the drama going on in the main story. Here is the first chapter, which includes mini-chapters about Edgar and Paul. Hope you enjoy!
The next release will be on October 6th.
You can read it here. And finally we are at the last chapter where regardless of whatever Lydia and Edgar go through... it always ends on a positive note, whether it be Lydia and Edgar reconciling and them growing together (or so one would think until the next volume is read) or even if not, there would at least be some hope.
For those who don't know me and have only just joined in the fandom of HTY, I'm Monica, one of the other admins that help run the site from time to time, and a student learning Japanese, who proofreads the chapters by comparing it with the original text.
Also I want to say... wow. 1000 likes on our Facebook page. The memory of how we celebrated 500 likes last time still remains fresh in my mind, and it all just reminds me of how long some of us have stuck to this project for so long, despite our busy schedules. I'm pretty amazed we still stuck around, and of course, I always need to say this: Thank you guys so much for your love, support and patience for us!
Normally, I'd be preparing something extra to celebrate milestones in an occasion such as this, but sadly due to the busy schedules, we haven't been able to this time around. But that doesn't mean it won't happen. ;) It'll just be sometime this year, so stay tuned!
The new chapter is released, which you can read here. We're almost at the end of this volume! Whoo!
The next release will be on August 4th. Enjoy, and thanks for sticking around :)
Chapter 6 is now released, which you can read here. Seriously, I feel like Edgar just keeps digging himself into a deeper and deeper hole… Hopefully he can redeem himself by the end of this volume!
The next release will be on July 7th. Enjoy!
The new chapter is now released, which you can read here. That last chapter was pretty crazy right? A lot of the comments were essentially how Monica and I were feeling when translating and proofreading. #teamduchess
I have a few housekeeping notes along with this post today (I’m not super eloquent at this stuff, so bear with me here):
Regarding recruitment, we would be happy to recruit anyone fluent in Chinese or Japanese, given that they’ve read the whole series, the main reason being that by knowing the context of what happened in the previous volumes, it would be much easier to begin translating from where we left off, rather than going in blind and submitting work that requires retranslating regardless. In the meantime, we will be chuggin’ away at the chapters, slowly but surely. xD
For those that are newer, we also have an FAQ page for common inquiries. If there are any other questions, feel free to send a message through the FAQ page or via our facebook page, and I will try my best to get to them in a timely manner.
Anyways, the next release will be set for June 2nd. Thanks for reading, and enjoy!
Hope everyone's been doing well. How is it already April already? xD
Anyways, here is the new chapter for this month.
And good news! Armaell has returned recently and is now caught up with the ebooks. The only exception, I believe, is Book 19, as Daydream wasn't the one responsible for the translations. For those interested in downloading the ebooks/pdfs, here is the link to Armaell's website.
As always, thank you for your support, as it is greatly appreciated. The next release will be on May 5th.
Once again, it's been awhile. Hope you've all been enjoying this volume so far. :)
You can read the next chapter here.
Note: For those of you who wondering where you can find volume 19, you can follow the links in our translations page to kagedream's blog with the already completed translation. For illustrations, you can find them on Nalya's facebook page here.
For those of you who have recently joined us in reading this series, welcome! I'm going to do a brief introduction.
First off, I'm Monica, one of the admins running the site and proofreading the chapters from Japanese. Today exactly marks the 4th year anniversary of Daydream translations! (Our first release was back in 3/3/2015).
Back then, Ashe who founded this site picked up this series right from where Nalya left off, from v7 ch.2. She then left it to another admin which was then passed down to Rachel and I.
As we have been going on for awhile now, there's definitely been a lot of changes in the way that we translate. Rachel and I, having both studied the language, have some knowledge of the grammar and sentence structures, so we translate using dictionaries and research when needed. We also get help from fluent translators such as Tiffany for Chinese and for Japanese, Doris (who normally does the extras of the series, such as the drama CDs) and Michelle. So currently, we no longer rely much on machine-translators such as Google like we did in the past and you can probably guess why.
As always, to those who have followed us from the beginning as well as those who've just discovered us, thank you for your lovely comments as well as your patience for every release! We appreciate it as it does encourage us to keep doing this as much as possible, (even if completing all the volumes may not be likely) especially now that we're no longer uni students, but full-time workers.
Anyway, I look forward to all your continued support and patience for this series! :)

Most translations are machine-translated, proofread with Chinese and Japanese dictionaries by students. Others are directly translated from Chinese and Japanese by those who are fluent.
