Well, this is certainly interesting. An excerpt taken from the Secret Ansem's Report #1:

"As noted in my earlier reports, I must solve the mystery of this "darkness of the heart." "

According to this, the number of reports written by Ansem the Wise is plural, meaning more than one.

According to the Secret Ansem's Report #2, Ansem only wrote one report before writing his Secret Ansem's Reports:

"Upon his advice, I decided to review the data obtained at my basement lab.
That is when I discovered the "Ansem Reports." Though they bore my name, the only one I had written was number 0. Apparently he had gone on to pen numbers 1 through 8 himself."

He only wrote one according to #2, but according to #1, he wrote more than one. A very interesting discrepancy...
Retcon or translation error.

One of those two.

Ansem is a scientist after all. If Ansem Report #1 he wrote is the first report he ever wrote, I don't think he'd even deserve to be called a scientist.

As one, he may have written countless and irrelevant reports before.

This would be true if his earlier reports were reported to be about anything. But he says that "As noted in my earlier reports, I must solve the mystery of this "darkness of the heart." It spoke of the "darkness of the heart" in his first report. How many reports did he talk about wanting to delve into the darkness of the heart? I'm inclined to believe only one.

We don't know. Ansem was interested to the Darkness from a long time. He's a scientist, and obviously they're not going to tell us all of our reports. He may have spoken of it in previous meaningless reports, and started this set of reports when he decided to start working on the mysteries.
