The One News

Hello all, let me know if I'm updating too frequently for you to read. But anyways, I do have news on The One. As I suspected, something was happening with the scanslator. Here is the news. Thank you to my anonymous Parisian commenter.

Basically, the post says that the scanner is unable to continue due to health reasons. She is, however, looking for a replacement, and it seems that there are people on there who are willing to work on it. We'll see. I'll keep checking back and get back to you later!

On a personal note, half my finals are done! My English grade is 90.63% lololol. But I have an essay that is still ungraded. :S Looking back, I'm not sure I did as well as I thought I did. Well anyways, I hope everyone else is doing well, especially if it is finals time for you.

See you soon!

Not continuing VB Rose

Hello all,

I am not continuing VB Rose, as I received this message on MF:

"Actually, I was planning on taking on V.B. Rose project (
I created a scanlation group for this and other project. (I'm also in process of buying the manga)...
I feel kinda bad that you snatched it from under my nose especially that I worked on cleaning the scans from Ishikkah before.
Besides, you messed up with leveling it.
I don't want to be mean though..."

She will be taking on the project, so visit her blog for more information!

[EDIT] I will at least be finishing vol. 7. After that, probably not.

Updates and Answers

Here are a few answers to questions I have received recently:


are you planning to continue doing this? by the way, i can't find the first 37 chapters.. anyone care to share where to download them?

Yes. I probably will continue, but I can't promise consistent uploading. Sorry! I am too busy to upload VB Rose on a strict schedule, but I will try to get it out as much as possible. It maybe be super sporadic, but it won't be like once a year. I promise. I know that Mangatraders does not allow VB Rose to be uploaded, but Mangafox has it for viewing purposes only. Other than that, I would search it up.

The One:

is there really a book of the one??

No. There is not. "The One" is a manhua, which is Chinese, and Chinese manhuas do not usually get licensed by American publishers. So no, there is no book of The One. As far as I know, I am the only translator of this manhua. Unless you can read Chinese, this is not available in English books.

To my international friends: Wow! Thank you so, so much for your overwhelming response. I am so happy to see so many people, and I really am surprised by the diversity. I guess I assumed that North America would dominate, but I am so totally wrong! So thank you to all my European viewers and readers especially. And thank you all to everyone who commented for the first time. It was truly amazing to see so many people from all different places of the world respond. It was really great.

Hablantes de espanol, gracias por las ofertas de ayuda para mi tarea. Ahora, creo que esta bien, pero si necesito ayuda o tengo preguntas, yo se que puedo preguntar a ustedes. Otra vez, muchas gracias. :) Pero si quieren hablar conmigo en espanol, por favor haganlo! Yo siempre estoy feliz cuando tengo una oportunidad para practicar espanol. Tambien, si yo tengo errores, por favor diganme, a excepcion de acentos, porque no tengo acentos en mi computadora americana jaja.

To my middle Eastern friends, I suppose I forgot that region, though I had sort of counted it with Asia. Maybe I should have made a different category, which is why I suppose some of you chose "other," which I was surprised at. I hope there were no martians voting... Well, actually it would be interesting if there were.

To my Lithuanian friend, I do know where Lithuania is! I once met a girl from Estonia who assumed everyone does not know where her country is, but trust me, I am such a geography nerd. I hung a world map in my room :) I still have it haha but it's not on my wall. So thank you for letting me know! I think it is so interesting (especially because I am currently reading The Jungle which discusses a Lithuanian family).

To my New York friend, I absolutely love New York, especially Manhattan, NYC :) I'm so in love with big cities really. I hope it is not too cold out there on the East Coast!

Everyone seriously, thank you so much for all your well wishes for my schoolwork. I really just came on here to blow off some steam/waste some time haha, but thank you so much for the encouragement! It's very motivating. Also, just curious, for everyone living in Africa, in which country do you live? I'm going to guess South Africa. Or Egypt, but I have no idea really. So ignorant... And anyone who answered "other" and does not live in the Middle East, where DO you live? Also, do I have any Danish/Swedish/Norwegian readers? How about Russian? Greek? Anywhere else?

I seriously wish that I could speak all of your native languages to thank you all properly, but unfortunately, you are all too diverse and cosmopolitan for me. I suppose that I could converse with the whole South American continent in espanol, and Spain, though I am not perhaps as fluent as I would like to be. I know a few words of French, mostly "Parlez-vous Anglais?" and "Ou est le Metro??!!" Those came in most handy when I visited Paris. Again, in Italy, I only managed to pick up "Dove il metro?" and "Uscita" and "Sinistra/destra" and something about "jardin." Seriously, this guy was talking to me so fast in Italian, and I could pick up a few words here and there, but really, knowing one romance language is not enough to comprehend the rest. So I ended up getting lost in the garden hahhaha. And German... hmm. Sadly, most of what I know is from the WWII era. I know "Frau," "Fraulein," and I forget Mister. Crap. I had a German friend once who taught me a few words, but I'm really terrible at pronunciation. I can't even say "Auf wiedersehen." Sorry. I just cannot pronounce your consonants haha. But someday, I want to try to learn. And other languages, don't even cherish hopes that I may say more than one word in the language. I suppose I should learn hello and goodbye to say to all of you. So here it is my dramatic exit! If I missed your language, let me know how to say goodbye and hello in your language! Thank you for reading such a long and boring post haha!

See you soon! Hasta luego! A bientot! Arrivederci! Auf wiedersehen! Sudie! 下次再見﹗さようなら! Selamat tinggal! Zbogom! до побачення! ลาก่อน!وداعا !

VB Rose Chapter 38

So... I know that I never said I would do this project. But I did mention that I really enjoyed this series, and was sad to find that it is not really updated. So here's an update for you all! Please enjoy!

It is also available here.

Where is The One?

So, in answer to Maria's question, there has been no word of the raws for The One, but we do know that the new chapter is out this month. I really apologize, but I can't do anything about the recent delays. Everything about this series has just been going down the drain recently, so hopefully both the author and the scanner gets their act together, although I do have high hopes for this chapter (even though I feel like I say this every month haha).

Please hold tight, dearies. If you really feel the need to be very updated, go to the Chinese forum here, and look for 【转载】《THE ONE独领风骚》73话 [精品]. It looks really official. There is another thread that basically says "I'm waiting for chapter 73 here," so it's not that one.

In any case, Grase and I are writing our essays right now hahaha. We're really such psychos...

Oh by the way! I'm curious about where all my readers come from so vote in the poll --->

The Semester [random ramblings]

is ending and I'm definitely pretending I don't have to do
- an English essay worth double points
- a Spanish presentation that I'm probably going to wing
- a physics lab report that I've barely started on
and any other innumerable things. I'm getting tired of just thinking of them, so I'll stop at those three major assignments due this week haha.

So please excuse me if I am tardy with Ingenuo. I know that we have been spotty with Ingenuo releases recently, but we will get them done, we promise! Grase and I probably want to focus on finals. Please be patient, and thank you dearest readers!
