Most Recent Chapter


Author: Yu Wo (御我); Novel Illustrators: Ya Sha, Zhan Bu Lu


During one of our arguments, my younger brother taunted me, claiming that I only knew how to depend on guys to get me through MMOs. In a fit of anger, I was spurred on by his words and decided to defeat my brother without depending on anyone else. By some coincidence, a new game called “Second Life” was about to go on the market and thus I started from scratch as a player. What’s more, I was the first person ever to log onto the game. The beautiful GM told me that I could have one wish granted… HumphI. Want. To. Become. A. Guy!

Shit, I accidentally became too super-ultra-incredibly handsome, now there’s a beautiful GM with designs on my virtue, waaaaah…!

… OH MY GOD! A girl wants to make me her trophy husband!

Heavens, what a hottie… Wait, what? He’s actually GAY and he’s hitting on me?! Go to hell! When I’m a girl you’re not interested, so why the hell do you want me now?

With an incredibly hilarious main character, incredibly bizarre companions, and an incredible journey of growing up and self-discovery, how will things pan out? Even God is playing a guessing game…


½ Prince is a series of Chinese novels written by Yu Wo (御我), spanning eight volumes. A manhua adaptation was serialized in the Dragon Youth Comic magazine, drawn by Cai Hong Zhong (蔡鸿忠), with a total of 16 volumes. There is also a sequel to the original novel (spanning one volume) and a short story crossover between ½ Prince and Kill No More, another of Yu Wo’s novels. There is currently no official English translation of the novels or manhua.

For more information on Yu Wo, here is her official blog.

    Awesome series! ½ Prince is one of my favourites. I always thought that Chinese novels had to be epic poems and traditional, or sappy romances, but ½ Prince is epic in so many ways! Prince is a really good main character, and as a girl, I can relate to the sexism in the world. I fell in love with the author and illustrator the moment I read this series. X3

    This series has all types of scenes: action, comedy, adventure, drama and romance (maybe?) in just the right amount. It’s like food with ingredients that have all sorts of tastes mixed together and ending up being a super-delicious dish.

  3. animerox111

    Wow. Just wow.
    And, me likey.
    And, me thinks this Manwha is responsible for many yaoi-fangirl mobs at internet cafes >~<
    Darn you fangirls! Oh, wait, can you "darn" yourself??
    Meh, technicalities.
    OwO Anyways, Imma gonna go read the novel nao! Bai~

  4. Lady Sinster

    Thank you so much for translating the chapters so quickly, it is much better than the translations on some other fan sites.
    -Hugs entire scanlation team-
    Keep doing such a great job!

  5. vicka

    Wow, 1/2 prince truly is the work of a genius! The story is just so well done.
    xiao lan Sure is a strong girl, I want to be like her and kick some guy’s asses too! lol²
    If I ever find a game like Second Life… oh, well… to sum up…

    I LOVE this series! *o*
    But until now, I only got the chance to read the manga… And It’s SO COOL!!!
    And now you have the novel available too!
    I LOVE YOU! (eyes sparkling)
    It’s because of you guys that I can read 1/2 prince!
    Thank you so much! Please keep working hard! =^.^=

      Wait for around 15 years for that game, for I will study neuroscience and technology to create the first “dream helmet gaming system”! All you have to do is make a person be able to control the stimulus that we give them and add a bit of internet ;D I won’t start off with second life though, I want to perfect the technology before doing that!

  6. Demy

    I love this manga and novel to death! I just wish there was a way the author could make it into an anime, and translate more of her work!

  7. Ama-chan

    Wow, I never new this series was this popular! I started to read the manga on OneManga, but only 5 chapters were up. This was back in ’08. I did like the chapters, but there was so little, and I gave up on it. But seeing it again, and so alive, along with the Novel, which I had no idea about, I’m excited to start reading. I can’t wait to see how things unfold. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place. Gotta love the internet! ^^

  8. starwarrior1234

    I just saw what was being updated for this month (for like the thirty-eighth time) and saw that there’s going to be two more chapters coming up for 1/2 Prince. PR, YOU PEOPLE ROCK! (^_^)

  9. Obsidian

    c: i just finished reading this series and i loved it! i wish i’d known about it sooner i never thought learning chinese would do me any good.

  10. levaythos

    One of the best mangas that i ever read. The story line wont make you bored and i really like it because it take place in MMO world(yea,reminds me of my experiences playing MMORPG XD)
    Feng lan is really awesome,she’s a girl,but can be so good in physical battle O.o”(something that i worst at)

  11. michele

    ummm…..so the cover on the novel is drawn by yu wo or by cai hong zhong?

  12. griffin

      For you, whose mother language isn’t this one, I think you’re English is excellent (I only have one language). But, we don’t all go around eating pig intestines, at least I’ve never tried it; because I’m not all that adventurous. Though one time I ate stilton cheese straight off my Mum’s plate and it was FOUL!

  16. sapientia

    heyy just wondering when the next chapter comes out..
    good luck wid d work \m/

  17. LOL

    ‘From June 2010 onward, all updates will take place on first week of each month, between the 1st and 7th.’ -If this is true then the next updates are coming in the next few days, right? I hope so ‘cos’ it’d be great, meanwhile I’ve started reading half prince to my little sis and she loves it (I think I might have turned her into a fan).

  18. Lady Sinister

    8th June..
    Come out chapter 2…
    I won’t hurt you too much.

  19. G_bell

    I love 1/2 prince, so i dunno what to say to express my gratitude for posting the novels, so here is a start; Thank you thank you thank you, sssoooooo much for this.

  20. StalkingFoodDemon

    Random Fact:
    I found 1/2 prince novels translated in Thai at my local bookstore~ woohoo~
    The words are actually very similar to the actual novel but apparently the art is drawn by another person (which still makes it look awesome~:D)

  21. Deathexile

    a month can go by fast in some areas of life but waiting for more chapters can be so slow!!!!!!!!

  22. Shadowpanther

    I can really relate to Feng Lan, I’m a really violent girl, but I don’t mind when I’m called vulgar or violent woman, because anyone who knows me is too scared to say it to my face!XD, Yeah, I have a bit of a reputation for violence, but I’ve got top grades…and the teachers don’t know a thing…

  23. Lady Sinister

    Yay. Finally chapter 2 of volume 4… I thought I was going to die.

    Thanks for translating, cleaning PR!

  24. E

    I’m on cloud nine now. 8″3

    Thank you for your hard work.
    I really appreciate it.
    I wish I could do something to help with the translating and all, but I’m pretty bad when it comes to that kind of things. *feels guilty* I guess the only thing I can do is to root for you guys. =)

  25. Psyche

    This series is just awesome! It’s filled with action, adventure, violence, and anything else shounen that I love but having a main character that I, being a girl, can greatly identify with. Plus it’s just hilarious.
    A great thanks to the author and you translators making it possible for us fans to enjoy such a great work. (^w^)b

  26. akira

    Erm,can i ask for the original novel link of 1/2 prince(the simplified Chinse novel?? Can’t seem to find the link anywhere…

  27. cat

    I love this series. I recently started reading it and I caught up to the most recent one in a few hours at 1 or 2 AM. Prince is definitely an amazing character, she gets to break the expected role of wimpy female and go for the lead heroine/hero(haha). Gui is amazing!! I AM SO ROOTING FOR HIM!!!

  28. dairachick

    I love 1/2 prince!!!! it’s so awesome! i thought it was going to be another boy manga but its actually for both :) it’s also very funny, addicting and has keep me reading very late at night. hahaha it’s a 10 out of 10!!!

  29. Lady Sinister

    Im back for my weekly stalking of the month :D! Thanks for releasing it so quickly this month!

    -Your dedicated stalker.

    Im joking… I hope. Thanks for the releases though.

  30. Sassy_Miss

    Thank you for translating the light novel. I so love the story of the Half Prince. Hope that they can published it in English in the near future. Thank you for all of your hard work ;)

  31. LOL

    I can’t believe I havn’t posted since July! It’s been a while, but I still regularly check for updates on 1/2Prince. I’m gonna be cheeky and ask now, are we having a few new chapters at the end of the month? ‘Cos’ if we only get one chapter a month then it will be ages before 1/2Prince is finished. Have you ever read a book and then thought the movie version wasn’t good enough or was lacking some parts? The manga/manhua is a bit like this; in that it can’t encorporate everything from the novel, so I wish that this site could catch up soon :-) because reading the manga first is spoiling the novel for everyone (although I love the artwork).

    • Amgine

      We have a set release cycle during the first week of every month. So you can expect the next batch of chapters sometime between Nov 1 and Nov 7.

      I can’t make any guarantees on the number of chapters we’re going to release, but we are doing our best to get as much done as our schedules would permit.
      I doubt we can catch up to the manhua anytime soon without compromising on quality (a chapter of the novel takes about a month to go through our translation process, while manhua scanlator groups can generally get a chapter done in less than a week).

      In any case, just think of the chapters like fine wine. In order to truly appreciate it, you have to savor it slowly. =]

  32. LOL/Lozza Loo

    Have any of you ever read the Shiki manga/novel by Ono Fuyumi? They have some chapters missing is the middle, but I highly recommend it. It starts out as a horror but it slowly turns into a tragedy; the art is great and the plot is amazing, you should read it. I think the novel is in chinese and I was wondering if ‘Halfprince.wordpress.com’ could please consider tranlating it? x

    • Amgine

      I’m pretty sure that’s in Japanese…Ono Fuyumi is clearly a Japanese name.

      I don’t think any of us know Japanese well enough to do translations. Sorry.

      If you wanted chapter 8 you should have submitted something to the contest!

  33. Inosuke

    1/2 Prince really is a piece of beautiful artwork.. This manga is very smooth in story line and dint get away from its theme.. The main character is very cool in his/her way and so does the other main support characters.. Hope that this manga will continue brings us more funny jokes and strong interesting story…

  34. Lozz

    Happy New Year Everyone! Just wanted to thank the kind people of ‘halfprince.wordpress.com’, for their hardwork this past year. Everyone really appreciates it. :-)

  35. Lozza Loo

    I’m looking forward to this month’s updates ;-D
    I’ve started reading ‘Sun Knight’ too and I love it!

  36. Mafiasoul

    Haha thanks lots fer working so hard to translate the novel!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Zana

    The only thing I have to say about (most of) 1/2 Prince is this: LLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Also epic, but that counts for the entire thing.

  38. lollipopchu

    I got into 1/2 Prince through Legend Of Sun Knight (which is wierd…isn’t it usually the other way around?) I was doubtful at first, but now I’m 500% addicted XDDDD I wish that someday I can become an authoress nearly as awesome as Yu Wo (cos I don’t think anyone can be as awesome as her) >_<

  39. princelover

    dude this series Is solo awesome I am not sure how many times I have read it. It is just too awesome. Hurry it up with those updates I am goon crazy here. Thanks woo much for putting I here for our enjoyment you are he best.

    • eilinel

      We will consider it after we have finished translating one of the series. Until then, we will not start another new series =).

  40. Shiroux

    Never thought that I would miss this treasure box until now…
    as a big fan of fantasy and VRMMO theme novel < which is quite rare to find – i have read Sword Art Online, and Moonlight Sculpture to where it has already translated. Now that I've read the latest chapter update of 1/2 Prince, I can only kneel down and give you all my gratitude.
    Even if the title is a bit too shoujo-ish for me at some point, it's still amazing with incredible sense of humor which overall can compare to the other said 2 series mention. They each have their own unique feature and each one is interesting in their own way so I would also recommend to those who interest. Funny that the three novels mention is from different but neighbor countries.

  41. top mistakes

    Your site is really interesting to me and your topics are very relevant. I was browsing around and came across something you might find interesting. I was guilty of 3 of them with my sites. “99% of site owners are committing these five mistakes”. http://bit.ly/ts0ScL You will be suprised how easy they are to fix.

  42. 15B

    XD Betweent 1/2 Prince and Eden Eternal… Q.Q My life now consists of school, homework, MMORPG-related things, anime and LSK. >.>

  43. EssentiallyArahs

    Wow. OMG I love you guys – I love 1/2 Prince! I’m so glad you guys translate this series. Great job! XD

  44. noodlecharm

    I learned about Yu Wo’s novels while reading 1/2 Prince ^_^ Loved it ever since! Makes me wish that I can read Chinese!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. ToBoy

    Honestly, I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again… 1/2 Prince and the other stories by Yu Wo will be the reason why I’ve taken up learning Chinese again. Determination, and motivation (1/2 Prince to be precise hehee) !

    P.S. I’ll say this… I’m proud to be from the same country as Yu Wo ! :D ♥

  46. LunarRaphsody

    I love the manga, but the novels are just as entertaining, if not more so. LMAO it really makes me wish that we had these kinds of games in todays time :)
    I find it heartbreaking that so many great stories are not available in English…and that my foreign language skills are…well lets just say that I don’t have any lol. So thank you for the translations!!!

  47. Amber

    I think this is a great manga book, for anyone whose into fantasy/romance/ action books. I know I really liked it so far and can’t wait for more to come out, it’ll be interesting I think the ones that come from the game and not reality to see if they’ll actually become reality and live among humans. Including getting the oppurtunity to actually feel what it’s like to be just simply human without having their super powers like they did when they lived their lives as when they are in the game. I hope they make an actual anime series out from this manga story someday, that’ll be pretty awesome if they do I think. :-) That’s about all I wanted to say, so hope everyone will have a nice day!!! :-)Oh! I also hope eventually that Prince will marry Gui once she goes back to reality, after she’s finished for good with the game, “Second Life.” Now I do believe that’s the only last thing I wanted to say. LOL

  48. SnowStorm

    Um, seeing 1/2 Prince is ending, I was kind of wondering what you would translate next.
    If not Eclipse Hunter or No Hero (I don’t see how the two are related though), then what?
    I did hear about another novel that Yu Wo wrote that was up on her blog. I don’t know if it was published.
    I think it was called… Um, sorry I can’t remember, something about an assasin and killing…
    Anyway, thanks a lot for translating for us.

  49. Tordenheim


    I wonder if I’ll live long enough to be able to play a game like this in the future……
    Though military and Law Enforcement would be the first to use it as part of their tactic and technique training first.

  50. miss anon

    This is the epicest of the epic! half prince is absolutely amazing! i love it so much. omg imma read it all over again… <3

  51. Joey

    Thanks for translating!!!I love 1/2 Prince so much!It’s been a long time since I came this this website,but wanted to say thanks!And finaaallly did my country start selling light novels and saw the 1/2 Prince novel!!!Gonna start buying them!!!

  52. Chika Kat

    If this became an anime, it would become a super big hit! And the people who are too lazy to read it will finally be able to taste the awesomeness of Yu Wo and 1/2 prince

  53. jianreyes02

    Hello! :) I just knew that the Half Prince Novel got republished with new covers. :) does anyone here have a scans of the newer cover of the novels? Thanks!

  54. piku23

    does anybody know if this is going to be an anime or if they are planning it in the near future

  55. DaRKSeiRYu

    Does anybody know that the manga version 1/2 prince is continue with title The return of a new prince?
    Is it continue by the original writer?

  56. Sasha

    just thinking about this in anime form would be awesome…maybe i should contact the author to get permission…get a team to work on this and just make it happen or just have a company do it by telling them how beneficial this will work for them.

  57. Wendy

    Hello Prince Revolution. Can I post Half Prince in Wattpad? I change some names. Eg, Feng Lan is Cloudy. Nan Gong Zui is Dion etc.. I wI’ll write that this novel is the work of Yu Wo and I will write that you should read the manga version to support it?

    • [PR]lucathia

      Hello, thank you for asking. As stated on our main page, we do not allow distribution or modifications of our translations. If we had any plans on posting on other websites, we would do it ourselves. Please do not post Half Prince on Wattpad. We have an agreement with Yu Wo about translating her works.

  58. Lucras

    I don’t think i can ever get over this series XD i have read it atleast 10 times.

  59. Lucras

    I have to update, I have now read this series 13 times. This is one of my favorite books, and I always want to go back to it! Sometimes I wish I had not read it that way I could feel the surprises all over again and not guess the outcomes. I always go to my friends and am like “HAVE YOU READ 1/2 PRINCE? DO IT!”

  60. Lucarius

  61. VIL

    Really ❤ this series…. Would like to see an animation of it…. (of course, with a good adaptation….)

  62. Nianyan

    My boyfriend asked me, “what are some of your favorite anime/manga/comic/etc?” and out of the blue I remembered 1/2 Prince! It has been years since I’ve read it on this very site. I’m so glad it is still up. Thank you!

  63. DragonCode

    does anyone know if SAO was inspired by 1/2 prince?

    if we look at their release date:
    1/2 prince first chapter came out on – January 31, 2007.
    SAO first chapter came out on – April 10, 2009.

    And their is so much similar features throughout both of the manga’s.
