    Note before reading: This is a review of the entire series, which was, as far as I know, completed recently in 201 chapters. Ahh, Liar Game. This was a Jdrama I just picked up to pass the time and suddenly, it had me and my sister hooked. Eventually I worked up the courage to read the manga and I have to say, it was both brilliant and a bit disappointing. The premise of the Liar Game isn't all that new - testing humanity in the face of impossible circumstances. The real genius of the books lies in Note before reading: This is a review of the entire series, which was, as far as I know, completed recently in 201 chapters. Ahh, Liar Game. This was a Jdrama I just picked up to pass the time and suddenly, it had me and my sister hooked. Eventually I worked up the courage to read the manga and I have to say, it was both brilliant and a bit disappointing. The premise of the Liar Game isn't all that new - testing humanity in the face of impossible circumstances. The real genius of the books lies in its common sense delivery of high-falutin' topics such as Game Theory, economics, psychology and the like, in a believable fashion. It doesn't hurt that it has some charismatic characters in the form of Akiyama, Yokoya and Fukunaga to explain these things, and art that grows even more easy on the eyes as time passes. (Think shirtless Akiyama...) Nao is irritating in the beginning, of course, but I think her character development is one of the most satisfying things to come out of any manga. That said, there are a few moments later in the series where she reverts to type, something I think the author could have avoided. Excuse me while I go off on a tangent here. The drama fails to mention one of the most important things in the manga - Akiyama's advice to Nao about doubting people to understand them. Why? This is such a pivotal factor in her character development and actions from that point forward, you would think they'd spare two minutes for it. I've watched the drama three times already and I don't remember it happening. Epic fail guys. All the praise aside, there are a number of problems with the manga. The main one is that it becomes formulaic after a while. The games themselves are not a problem, they get more and more twisted, but the story telling remains the same. Come on Kaitani-sensei, after hearing the dealers say, "Let's watch the game unfold" the first fifteen times, you'd think we'd have figured it out already. Characters actions make less and less sense when we know for sure that Yokoya plans 20 steps ahead and they still don't suspect anything. I don't expect them to figure out intricate plots, but it would be most natural to not believe a damn thing Yokoya and Akiyama say. The ending is the other big one. Hopefully, I won't spoil anything too much, but here it is - IT WAS LAME. Seriously? I did not expect this from Liar Game of all things. The ambiguity of the victory was ok with me, but you're telling me they started a game of that scale for such a waffly reason? It murdered my enjoyment of it, seriously. If the book had ended with Akiyama and Nao attempting to find out the truth of LGT, it would have been a much better ending. That's how bad the ending was in my opinion. The last problem I have the manga is purely a non-techincal, personal one. *takes a deep breath* WHY WON"T YOU LET ME SHIP NAO AND AKIYAMA, DAMMIT? WHY?! THERE WERE SO MANY WAYS TO END THE SERIES AND YOU WOULDN'T EVEN LET THEM TALK FACE TO FACE AT THE END?! I KNOW THIS ISN'T THAT KIND OF MANGA, BUT WOULD IT KILL YOU TO GIVE ME SOME HOPE? WASN'T THAT THE WHOLE DAMN POINT? That's all I wanted to say. Sorry for any spoilers, guys, but I think it's better not to get your hopes up about this. Ok, so now it sounds like I don't like the manga, but that's not true. It is a work of pure genius. For everyone who loves intrigue, logic games, mysteries and high-stakes games, this is IT. Even if you don't like any of these things, you should read it for pure educational value. Especially the 17 Card Poker game and Musical Chairs. Pure analytical awesomeness. So read it, but be prepared for a less than stellar ending and headscratching moments. Bonus: Matsuda Shota, who plays Akiyama in the TV drama, just because I can.

I don't care if Nao "grows" by the end of the entire series. I don't care if she turns into an Oxbridge scholar. I don't care if she later wins a Nobel Prize. She is as dumb as a brick on fire and I lost brain cells just witnessing her: (1) Literally give away her million yen to her rival; the guy against whom she knows she is playing the game--the game she knows is called the LIAR game. (2) Literally standing in a corner of a street for a literal day without literally moving an inch (even to eat or shit) because some guy she just met "promised" her to meet her there after he "goes home to drop some shit off". Like bitch. (3) Almost gets raped by two men because she's standing there waiting, and the first thing she does is scream the random stranger's name because HOW ELSE IS A GIRL TO REACT OTHER THAN TO WAIT FOR SOME KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOUR TO RESCUE HER. Like, I just can't. I CAN'T. Also, the concept of the story was really cool until I actually read it. - You get a million yen - Your rival gets a million yen - By the end of 30 days, the game masters will come to collect the million yen back from each of you - Meaning if your rival takes your million yen from you, you are a million yen in debt, your rival has a million yen in his pocket You get the gist. Except the entire foundation of the game was "By opening this letter, you agree to the terms and conditions of this game and agree to participate in this game." Not to mention this note is found only AFTER you OPEN the letter to begin with. Like fuck you. If I got a letter in my mailbox addressed to me, of course I'm gonna open it. GTFO with that shit. And then the fact the lawyer Nao contacted was like "Daaaamn, they got you good there, guess you gotta play the game huuuuh." Like fuck off with all your dumbassery. Fuck ALL y'all. I'm out.

    I started reading this on a whim - I remember trying to read this years back, but then stopped because at the time I couldn't stand the art and wasn't quite so interested in the story. But then lately I came across the Japanese drama live action version and I was like, why not? I'm glad I started this, even though it's taking me awhile, because I think Ive reached an age where it seems like I can appreciate the kind of story being told. It's really fascinating. And I'm really curious as to see w I started reading this on a whim - I remember trying to read this years back, but then stopped because at the time I couldn't stand the art and wasn't quite so interested in the story.

I'm glad I started this, even though it's taking me awhile, because I think Ive reached an age where it seems like I can appreciate the kind of story being told. It's really fascinating. And I'm really curious as to see what is the point of the Liar Game. Nao is a bit of an airhead, but she's so good at heart, that of course she'll be saved in the end. At first her naivety can be tiring (like surely, after all this time, you still haven't figured out that people will trick you?) but she does develop as the series goes on. Just when you think she's foolish, she comes out and surprises everyone. So who else better than to pair her with a swindler? Akiyama-san has just come out of jail and Nao asks him for help. It's really cute how she was tricked and then he, feeling sorry for her, does help her in the end. As the story progresses, he becomes a very strong ally and friend to Nao - mostly because in the beginning, Nao wouldn't leave him alone, and when she was left alone, she did something silly like take on the second round of the Liar Game, which in turn lead Akiyama-san to following in her steps. If he didn't, he would worry about her fate. Trust me, it's not like some sappy idol drama, where the feelings of the heroine come across as rather insincere and stupid. The characters are well developed. Nao is naive and innocent, good at heart, but willing to learn the hard realities and then to see beyond the darkness and make rational choices. For herself and for others. In some ways, she might be seen as some kind of Hero complex to her trying to save everyone, but she means well.

    Absolutely mindfuck . Hell of a psychological thriller. Never enjoyed reading so much. Edited on July 26, 2019 After reading Volume 1-19 I started this in the middle of June and I read down 19 volumes , 3800+ pages in almost 4-5 weeks. First of all a heartfelt thanks to Shinobu Kaitani for this extremely well thought, brilliantly written and beautifully drawn manga series. Well rather than the ending which could be a little long (maybe) else every story arc from starting to the end is purely amazing. Absolutely mindfuck . Hell of a psychological thriller.

Well rather than the ending which could be a little long (maybe) else every story arc from starting to the end is purely amazing. It is not just entertainment, it serves a greater purposes, capturing human thought process and psychology, breaking and building of relationships and cooperation, trust and doubt and failures etc. At times, one may find difficult what's going on as it is very complex but explanation make it easy at the end. I found Poker a little hard to understand as I no nothing about poker but after reading this I came to know to many new things. Kaitani-San put so much of thought in writing this Magnum Opus it never feels as if it is fictional story or this thing can't happen in the real world. I haven't read much of a mangas but definitely know that this series is pure brilliance and very underrated. At last I till now didn't have any favourite fictional character but now I have one and that is none other than : Shinchi Akiyama 💙 and also Nao Kanazaki because at many times in my life I resemble her. Read it , you will surely like it. Once again Thank You Very Much Mr. Kaitani for writing this manga series. #Respect

    I know there's other volumes on here but I'm not arsed to add other reviews about this manga So I have heard of this well-known horror manga from The Anime Man who mentioned it a couple of times in his videos. I read it this morning and honestly man, I CANNOT stand Nao. She literally reminds me of Bam from TOG who is also a complete utter simp. The amount of her having pointless meltdowns and always be easily tricked by different opponents she mets, literally grinds me f*cking gears man!

The amount of her having pointless meltdowns and always be easily tricked by different opponents she mets, literally grinds me f*cking gears man! I know I can be a crybaby myself when certain things happen but her character was literally all over the place. I've heard people says her personality changes overtime but with all due respect, I will still say she's the worst character I've ever crossed in the manga world lol..... If only it was just about Shinichi and Yuuji partnering up to play the Liar game together, I would've enjoyed reading it no problem. Although I will admit, the story really did drag for me because a lot of things were going on that really weren't clear. What I'm trying to say here is not only the character Nao let me down but the whole plot of the story as well. Yeah I mean if you don't mind having a typical wimpy character on a horror manga, go ahead and read this. Dont say I didn't warn you weebs!!!

    Despair Speaking

    Nao Kanazaki is a college student who's way too honest for her own good. When she finds a 100 yen coin (which is like change for them in Japan), she willingly goes through the trouble of giving it up in the police station. So when she was given a package of 50 million yen and a note telling her who her enemy is (an old teacher of hers) and that if she can't somehow obtain his 50 million yen, they'll both have a debt of 100 million yen, she doesn't know what to do. She even falls for a trap and l Nao Kanazaki is a college student who's way too honest for her own good.

So when she was given a package of 50 million yen and a note telling her who her enemy is (an old teacher of hers) and that if she can't somehow obtain his 50 million yen, they'll both have a debt of 100 million yen, she doesn't know what to do. She even falls for a trap and loses her share of the money! Enter Shinichi Akiyama. He's a famous con artist who managed to bankrupt a huge corporation. He initially had no intention in helping Nao when she approached him but memories of his mother (she was like Nao, too honest!) convinced him to at least get her out of the sticky situation. Liar Game is about a tournament named after the title between people from different backgrounds where they have to advance to another round or end up with a huge debt. Nao and Shinichi are the main characters, but they meet a lot of other people in the way who become either new friends or enemies. As they get deeper and deeper into Liar Game, they decide to defeat the Liar Game organization from within by freeing their opponents with the money they win (yes, they can pay for their opponents' debts with their winnings) and rendering the tournament itself useless. Will they succeed? Liar Game is brilliant, I tell you. You'll definitely learn a lot of interesting things.Each round is mind-boggling and it's fun to read about how Nao, Shinichi, and those that choose to join their side outwit the others. Some of the antagonists are awesome too, like Yokoya. The intellectual battles between Shinichi and Yokoya are my favorites so far. Nao isn't as useless as you would first assume either. Oh, sure, she's easy to trick but her kind and open nature is the reason why Shinichi manages to convert people into their cause. And she can be pretty deep too; in fact, she even figured out the true purpose of Liar Game and had profound insights regarding the tournament and human nature that prove to be invaluable. Yeah, she's still kind of a damsel-in-distress, but her character development is moving and something to also look forward too. If you're into psychological thrillers full of twists and turns, this is the manga for you! I highly recommend it!!!

    the reason I love manga and anime is that it always offer something new...... this is a review for the whole series... the story revolves around a simple girl named Kanzaki Nao, who trusts everyone too easily and as a result is very easy to deceive..... one day she finds a 100 million Yen and an invitation to join the "liar game" .....because of her nature she got deceived by her opponent and she was losing the game when she asked Akiyama Shinichi, the genius psychology graduate for help..... one o the reason I love manga and anime is that it always offer something new...... this is a review for the whole series... the story revolves around a simple girl named Kanzaki Nao, who trusts everyone too easily and as a result is very easy to deceive..... one day she finds a 100 million Yen and an invitation to join the "liar game" .....because of her nature she got deceived by her opponent and she was losing the game when she asked Akiyama Shinichi, the genius psychology graduate for help..... one of the thing i admire about this manga is how beautifully Nao's character has been developed....at first she was a "stupid" girl who was unaware of the harsh world around and thus was very easy to cheat......but as the chapter progressed, we can see a much more matured and confident human being Akiyama's character was equally good.... he was smart,intelligent and can turn a game from any situation.... this manga has over 200 chapters thus it is a hell lot of reading.....but it's a very entertaining as well as mind blowing experience.....the games, the solutions, the tricks, all of them keeps you on the edge and messes with your mind on a different level....the best thing about this series is that it's based on pure mind games with any unnecessary subplots.... i watched the J and K drama too but i liked the manga more (though i wish for an anime adaptation of this manga) huge respect for Shinobu Kaitani sir, for this masterpiece and thank you for reminding me again why anime/manga is one of the best things in my life :-)

    This story has a lot going for it and a lot going against it. I really like the concept of a high stakes game based solely in pitting normal people against each other in a game that requires deception and underhanded tactics. I don't really like that the main character is a somewhat bland innocent girl paired with the intelligent edgy guy. It's a bit over done, and she's not really all that great to follow along with.

    Since I've already seen & loved the Japanese drama (I've seen/loved the KDrama too but it has a totally different plot), I'm not really sure how to rate this. I've experienced the story before, so therefore I can't really be like WOW THE PLOT TWISTS! because... I've seen it before.

    I am totally in love with this manga. Just perfect for me. Human psychology with puzzles and math-like problems. I can't ask for more! The series starts kinda of lame but soon it catches up. And actually each round of the game is better than the previous one. The author is getting better and better with each round of the game. The art might look horrible at the beginning. However, as you continue reading, you get used to it. And actually I can't imagine this series drawn any differently. The art I am totally in love with this manga. Just perfect for me.

    I know, I know and other people also said it: The graphics is SHIT!. But it is also kind of giving everything a kind of comedy-like feeling, which is somehow cool. The whole idea is hooking. You get a letter, you play in a game of lies, in which you get SOME BIG MILLIONS of yen. Either you win and keep the money, either you lose and then you shold better kill yourself because not even if you win the country's biggest lottery, you've got not chance to pay the debt. Anyway, I really liked it. And I h I know, I know and other people also said it: The graphics is SHIT!. But it is also kind of giving everything a kind of comedy-like feeling, which is somehow cool.

    *Review is for the whole series. *Rating - 4.5 Liar Game is not in my usual wheel house, but I freaking love it. I've also not come across abother quite like it, but it's been so long I can't remember how I found it. Like I said, wheel house. It's very suspensful, with intense feelings between character interactions. There's a lot of psychological basis about human nature aswell. You never know quite how it's going to go. *Review is for the whole series. *Rating - 4.5 Liar Game is not in my usual wheel house, but I freaking love it.

    Initial thoughts: This bitch annoys me as much as Mare Barrow and that's a true achievement. The title of the game is 'liar game' and you expect everyone to be brutally honest?!? And now you're whining about how you can't believe that you've been deceived again? 🤦🏻 Overall plot is interesting but Nao please die in a ditch. Will update later.

    The game of deception. Nao is a young girls believing everything and everybody. She gets into trouble because of her trusting nature. The manga witnesses her development into seeing the real world with a few lenses.

    Great start for an awesome manga series. Nao is really naive and innocent, in so many ways. I mean, she even cries and worries how the neighbors feel about it! I love how Shinichi's character is drawn... he kinda looks like a tame version of L. The mystery and intrigue has just began. Great start for an awesome manga series.

    With Liar Game, we have another Shounen like Death Note with focus on psychological battles than actually fighting scenes. The concept of the story is simple yet intriguing, especially with the psychological concepts thrown around, like cognitive dissonance. But when comparing it to similiar mangas (aka Death Note), it is not as clever but has solutions that the normal reader can figure out as well - I don't know if this is a good or a bad thing.

Talking about Death Note which was the last manga series I read, couldn't help it but notice the bad representation of women again, it seems to be a thing of Shounen from the early 2000s. It is always men writing naive female characters that need help from a men. I like Nao, even though she is the only female character in the story but I can't understand how she could (view spoiler)[give her teacher the money nevertheless (hide spoiler)] after all that has happened. I like Akiyama as well, his design is nice and he seems to be an interesting character. This manga throws around some ethical questions as well, but they don't go too much into detail. It shows us how money can change people and how we seemingly can't trust anyone. The most outstanding aspect of Liar Game is the artstyle, honsetly. I can't put it into words, it is just weird, especially those exaggerated facial expression. But I have to admit, it has something and I like it. Nevertheless, after this re-read I'm still invested enough in the story to continue the series finally (I bought the first manga in 2015, so yeah).

    A manga full of text, but its entertaining and at the same time educational. At first, I didn't like the art, but it gets better over time. It's full of symbolism that's meant to depict the world we live in. You'll learn sometime with every game, and I'm sure will be startled by the outcome of some situations. Most people didn't like the ending, but the message that the mangaka wanted to transmit us is crystal clear.

By writing this manga he is showing us how of this dog-eat-dog world works and what's it's needed to be done to change it. The question is: are we willing to leave aside our selfishness and trust each other in order to route the world to the correct path?

"Some countries attack other countries because " justice lies with their country" to them"
