The series has been running since 2006 and is still going with 18 volumes out. Along with ''Manga/SentaiSchool'', it is usually considered one of the precursors of the "French manga" trend that would become more noticeable in the following decade with titles like [=VanRah=]'s ''Stray Dog'' or Tony Valente's ''Manga/{{Radiant}}''. The series has a limited, faithful fandom in France but is completely unknown outside of it. It doesn't help that the humor and the real life depicted are all very typically French, and thus far from the usual tone of Japanese comedies. No Main/{{Moe}} or harem antics here: Terrence's teenage life involves failed exams, partying, alcohol, and yes, losing his virginity.

Created by Réno Lemaire, this French comic written, drawn and edited as a {{Manga}} turns around the life of the lazy OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent Terrence Meyer, who is afraid of fire since his mother died in one. One night, during a nightmare, he overcomes his fear and "awakens" inside his own dream. Soon after, an old man with a [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic massive cross-shaped pendant]] and a pipe shows up before Terrence and explains him he is currently in {{Dreamland}}. For people who become conscious of this world by overcoming their phobia, Dreamland literally becomes a second life: they are called Travelers and are granted a special power. When they wake up, they disappear from Dreamland and return to their powerless self in RealLife; and if they die in Dreamland they merely become unconscious dreamers once more.
