-- Credits and Thanks -----------------------

  • Jen Wand - For all the wonderful Margaret translations she did for the last few volumes and for allowing me to add them here on to the translations archive. What would we do without Jen? :)

  • Elina C. - For stepping in with the translations when Jen couldn't make it and for allowing me to add them here as well. Thanks so much! ^_^

And the most important person to thank is Rita, who was the wonderful creator of the original version of The Hana Yori Dango Project. Her site gave tons of HYD fans out there a place to go to for much needed translations and some of the best fanfictions out there to date. I give her much much thanks for letting me adopt the site and allowing me free reign over the content in order to continue keeping this site alive. I've always wanted to create my own HYD shrine, and this is really the next best thing I could've hoped for. :)

To honor all the crediting Rita had given at the original site, I'm including them all here as written by Rita herself. They've all played a part into the making of the project after all. ^_^
