Added DiffLines:

* KudzuPlot: The story only manages to raise more questions than it answers them as the series progresses. Who is Sang, and what's her relationship with Chang-chun and the Madosa Guild? What are the Madosa Guild's purpose and why do they need the rings so much? And ''what'' does the rings do anyway? Why do Sang's [[spoiler:and Chang-chun's]] RingOfPower give them split personalities? What is the relationship between Chang-chun, Hwi-young and the rest? Really, just about every plot point introduced in the series is left hanging by the 10th volume, and the author doesn't seem interested to continue it anymore.
