What They Say
With a common enemy to defeat, O'Rhang Yhun, Ha-Rhang Whur, and Dahn-Ryoung head off to Nanjing Province to clash with the Chief of Chung-Sue-Moon. But before they can strike, one of Dahn-Ryoung's old acquaintances betrays the group and sets them up for a trap.

The Review
OhRhang and HaRhang continue their journey through China searching for those who have ruined their lives. They still have no clue who is really behind all of this; nor do they know why someone would have a grudge against either of them. But they are sure that whomever is behind the string of misfortunes must have some big plans. Whomever is after them has not hesitated to consistently involve innocent people in their foul play. This is no longer about their own revenge but they need to end this madness before more people are hurt.

In the world of Chung Rhan, there is no shortage of treachery in China. And the dirty dealing seems to have stepped up a bit the further they delve into country. People are coming out of the woodwork to get rich quick by committing shenanigans, kidnapping and maybe some murder. This has been par for the course for these two warriors. Everywhere they turn baddies await hoping to pit them against each other or tear them apart. There is no mention of who or why, but it is becoming apparent that this not occurring by chance.

Chun Rhang is the perfect example of a manga that you should not judge by its cover. If you were looking at this book entirely superficially, you might get caught up with Park Sung-woo and his stunning new character designs. Infinity's production values are very high here also. They have printed this in an oversized A5 sized book, with dust jacket. They have brand new art under the dust jacket and on the full color volume header. And to top that they have included a full color fold out poster printed on canvas paper. All of those extras and 238 pages for $10.99 might be worthwhile, but without a plot and without Park's sharp art... Even I would pass. This is nothing but a linear fight manga without the rivals that often build up personality in lead characters. No tournaments and so far no substantial plot either, so there really is much of a reason to read... Unless you have to be NOW completest.
