I have read the first six chapters and some of the next chapters with the awful mtl. I wish there was someone that would translate the rest of this book....

I have also watched all the sixteen episode of the TV show, but it's very different from the book, and I really want to know what happens in book, even a summary would be fine.

all I got to know so far is this, I hope it would help you:

Xiao Nanzhu is the protagonist and the one with the sword in the... more>> middle of the poster. He is not the chatty type.

Situ Zhang is the one with the glasses and he is Xiao Nanzhu's childhood best friend.

Chuxi is the calendar god of New Year's Eve, He has to protect the last day of the year and make sure people start the new year happily. he is very powerful because most evils work on new years eve to ruin people's whole year, and he has to fight all those evils and destroy them. Since he has been doing this for a long time, he is kinda unstable and people say that sometimes evil takes over him. He is the handsome ML with long black hair and golden armor in the poster.

Plot: Xiao Nanzhu is looking for a job, and a job finds him. His grandmother was a Huangli Shi and he gets to inherit the job. Every day has a god of it's own, so as the day goes by, he sees new gods that protect that specific day, and one of the things all the god have in common is they stay away from Chuxi.

Chuxi used to be a very lively and kind person, but suddenly something changed about him and since then he is dark and gloomy, the other calendar gods are even afraid to look at him.

Every day Xiao Nangzhu comes across difficulties that are mostly caused by evil energies and he fight those evils with the help of the calendar god of that day. <<less
