The chapter titles of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils are verses that make up five poems.
The title of each chapter is a verse and the ten chapters in each book actually forms a poem. Each book is named after the tone pattern used for that poem.
《少年游》Adventures of the Youth – featuring Duan Yu
The righteous scholar travelled the perilous peak,
Moonlight shone brightly on the beautiful cliff.
A swift horse with a masked lady,
High on the cliff away from others,
Tiny steps borne from ripples.
Whose disciple and whose estate,
Helplessly regret being unfaithful,
Majestic and resounding music,
A lady married to a fitting place,
Gleaming sword across dark smoke.
《苏幕遮》Shrouding Screen in Suzhou – featuring Qiao Feng and Duan Yu
Listening to the lady in the waterside pavilion, watching her advise the gathered heroes.
Unrestrained drinking of a thousand cups at a men’s gathering,
In the forest of apricots, discussing the meaning of life.
Reasons of the past,
Wishes of the present,
Vengeance of a foreign man, suppresses the emptying of a hero’s tears.
Even in the face tens of thousand people I will carry on,
Sadness remains at Yanmen, with no words left.
《破阵子》Breaching the Formation – featuring Xiao Feng
The distant vague as a dream,
Both eyes gleaming like the stars.
Empty promise of cows and sheep at the frontier outpost,
Past alliance in the Illuminated side of the lady’s black hair.
A journey through the mist walking on snow.
Slaughtering bear and catching tiger with bear hands,
Clearing enemies with a halberd in a fierce battle.
Surviving in the wilderness forging a cast iron head,
The despicable matchmaking with a freezing palm.
Spraying water to restrain the gathered heroes.
《洞仙歌》Song of the Cave Immortal – featuring Xuzhu
Victory or defeat, how can it be predicted!
Carefree for now with no one supervising,
Enduring anarchy, or apocalypse.
Strong winds, throwing Piaomiao Peak into turmoil.
A beauty abruptly age, a fleeting moment of bliss.
Dreaming of real heartfelt words in a tangible fantasy.
Laughing in unison, it was all for naught in the end.
Recklessly drunk, misdirecting passion.
Unable to withdraw, the post of authority is linked to greed and wrath.
Take a step back and ponder, when would the delusion end?
《水龙吟》Cry of the Water Dragon – featuring Xiao Feng, Duan Yu, Xuzhu
Eighteen swift riders of Yanyun, galloping like mighty wind and billowing smoke.
Evil and abhorred of all ages, unable to withstand an attack, an inglorious victory.
Grand ambitions to rule and conquer, blood feud, turn them all into dust.
Thinking in vain of winning he beauty, wherefore is the blissful marriage?
At the bottom of the dry well, in the mud.
Holding the wine to to ask the Emperor three questions,
For whom do they blossom, the camellia that fill the road?
The descendant of prince fall into dire straits, how can he endure it, dew on a willow branch?
Worthless riches and glory, unpredictability of life, this life is absolutely dreadful!
Teaching Chanyu to break arrows, routing the six armies, and rousing the anger of heroes!
