If you're a habitual shoujo reader, then I would read it. If you're not... I think this is probably too far into the genre to be likable.

The female lead is not that annoying, and though her sixth-sense is a little bit far-fetched, the power lays the foundation of the entire manga, not the romance. Saki, the main character, is not entirely an idiot, and shows compassion and determination at the right spots. She knows when to give up, but also grows as a person, in that she learns that there is a "story behind every lie." I thought that the theme was well-articulated, and even though others insist that it degenerated into shoujo fluff at the end (the 2nd to last page-ish), I think it was a nice thing to tie together the series. The scene after that... well that could have been skipped to save many a stomach.

The male lead, by comparison, appears pretty much one-dimensional for the entirety of the series. But the girl is starved for genuine companionship after the first major plot event, she accepts his... superficialness. He is princely and thus good-looking, ridiculously kind to her, etc. Basically, he fulfills the entire shoujo love interest requirement. Next to perfect, with a supposed "flaw." The drama around his "flaw" was terrible. I'll be blunt about it. Being as the story is predictable, I knew it was going to happen, and I suppose it could have been worse.

That said, combined, I didn't really care much about the female or male lead. They could have ended up together or not, but I really didn't care. Perhaps the story was hard to relate to, but I've read several supernatural mangas where I am capable of connecting with the characters. If I was kind, I would say that the emphasis of the series, despite the over-arcing theme of romance, was on the "lie" thing, which is probably the only great thing about this series.

Her ability does create drama, but it also forces her to learn, and I think this manga does have some character development, at least in the female lead. I really don't think the male lead changes. I believe the author attempted to write off his "development" as the unmasking of his character, but the so-called hidden pasts did little to provide him depth.

Overall, it's not spectacular, but it's not terrible. It's only two volumes too. (There is no way I would read this if it were any longer). The side characters are mildly likable, and I did not find myself wanting to murder any fictional characters (i.e. no annoyingly persistent rivals that shouldn't exist even in shoujo).

Therefore, my recommendation reads: If you have (a lot of) free time and you're a shoujo reader, try it.

Most shoujos I read, I usually expect that it will be like the rest which is where there are no new scenarios (example: girl gets cornered by jealous snobs. Almost every shoujo I ever read) But shockingly (to me) it was good.

Only problem I had though, was the ending. I really hate those type of endings especially how

he was thought to be her brother but then it turned out he wasn't blood related to her

I'll definitely gave 10 and love this manga so much, if only...

it's not so cliche in the end, where they weren't blood related sibling.
LOL, that part doesn't suit my taste XD

but after all, this one's a good manga
the idea is unique, every problem cleared, and many moral lessons

hem about the artwork, nothing special for me
but everything's illustrated well

First off, if you are not a very open-minded person, read this spoiler:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
This is NOT incest. The male lead got adopted by his parents' supervisor (work-related) when they died, they are not blood related at all.


I came upon this manga by total chance, and am very happy I did.
It's one of the better shoujo out there ^.^

Though it is only shoujo because it takes partly place in high school (the male lead is an adult but his workplace is not really shown to us readers). There is some heavy stuff in there, though for some reason it left me cold, mostly (which means no crying). Maybe because I can't relate to the characters' circumstances that well. Though there were some sub plots that made me sad or/and angry (and cry too).

The thing with the lies seems pretty weird to me. I don't know if anyone else noticed, but while the secret behind her brother came to light, the most weird secret (where here lie detection ability comes from) got never explained. At the same time I really admire the idea behind it.

"Humans lie and deceive people only to deceive themselves."

A pretty good shojo manga. I liked that the protagonist didn't instantly forgive her friend Namie when she fibbed but I liked that she grew to understand the difference between lies and white lies. Also the romance was nicely done-she didnt try to lead the other guy on like so many other manga nor did she cry buckets over her "brother". It was a romance that was gradual, which, in my opinion, the most everlasting ones. Plus this manga got an extra point for the adorable baby in the last chapter. This mangaka knows my weakness XD

That was much more interesting in the beginning than at the end, which is vomit-inducing typical shoujo rubbish. I enjoyed most of it though - it has an interesting premise and good pacing - it's just a shame that all that only leads to something insipid.

this manga is so sweet.... I just don't like the typical ending. The author should cut it a little bit before that fast forward scene. Anyhow, a good manga about how to learn to believe in people. Good character developments... i hope there'll be more like this :3 i'm addicted to this

This manga was definitely worth every minute of my time. I love everything about it! character development, romance, mystery, supernatural and lessons learned behind the story. This manga is also very different from other ones because well, the plot for one is unique, but also because the balance between romance,mystery and supernatural was so well done. I also love how Saki didn't start off as a perfect-nice-strong girl but more so, learns from the situations that occur in her life and becomes strong by experience.
It's definitely captivating and it'll blow you away
Highly recommended!

Great read! I like how the first volume was about her solving and finding the real reason as to why people lie and choose to deceive themselves. I think I liked it more in volume 1 where she was helping others, even though it may have been a bit dark. The second volume wasn't as dark but it focuses more on her own issues with her brother. I don't want to spill too much but all I can say is that the romance officially starts in volume 2. Pity though, this could've become a long series, about her helping others overcome their lies.. Still a great read, recommended. Actually, now that I think back, it wasn't that dark at all.. Sure there were traumatic events, but they didn't happen to the main character.. So her story continued without it being dark..
EDIT: I'll give a spoiler without a spoiler tag, because some people might misunderstand!!: IT IS NOT INCEST. THERE YOU GO. WHOEVER PUT THAT TAG IS AN IDIOT. -.-"
