Summary (from Wikipedia)

During the Republic Era, the town of Changsha was guarded by nine families known as the “Old Nine Gates” (or the “Mystic Nine”). They were incredibly powerful families who wielded supreme power over everything in Changsha.

In 1933, a mysterious train pulled into Changsha station. The leader of the Nine Gates, Zhang Qishan, was also the army commander of Changsha station and started to investigate with Qi Tiezui. They discovered a highly suspicious mine just outside of Changsha.


I found that Xingiu has already translated some of this 4 years ago if you are more interested in their version. Their stuff is here. The stuff in the pdf/epub is all the Mystic Nine stuff (Vols 1 & 2, Chen Pi’s extra, and the 20 Misc Mystic Nine extras).

  1. (in english is better ^^”) thank you for this translation. The beginning strongly resembles the drama, but luckily it goes further. Too bad the author is not continuous. What a pleasure to see the characters, bursts of laughter and awesome Frisian
