The main character, Nao has got to be the dumbest person ever created. It must take some kind of special training for someone to be that gullible. ARGHHHH!! Just think about her pisses me off. Well that's it for my rant. Apart from her everything else was pretty cool.

BTW: When Nao asked 'Is being honest really such a bad thing?"

What Akiyama should've said. 'No, but honesty without common sense is just being retarded.'

Okay I've read more of the volumes. I wish that Nao just dropped dead... after getting the crap kicked out of her.

I like it, surprisingly - the story is somewhat original, although, admittedly, the main character is far too naive. Even though the solutions do seem a little too simple, I think it makes it a bit more realistic. The story is starting to get a little too dramatic and exaggerated, though. Also, I think the mangaka needs new ways to "stretch" the rubberband -the girl is unnecessarily jumping herself into the game without much reason besides her "honesty."

I'm seriously enjoying this series, as the concept just seems so fresh. The fact that at any moment I always felt the guy supposedly helping the main character would betray her at any moment still seems to linger in my mind as highly plausible. I thought he was Mr. X as soon as he mention he was a substitute for some random lady in Volume 1. I definitely want to see how this turns out.

This manga explores human nature through a series of games. The best outcome of all the games is when everyone cooperates, but only if the players can overcome greed, fear, etc.

Despite the promising premise, the manga has quite a number of shortcomings. Each game takes a long time to explain, which slows down the pacing of the story. There's also a constant stream of new characters (players), so there's no room for any character development.

In order to make up for that, the author uses exaggerated reactions by the characters to create a sense of tension, which makes everything seem unrealistic and somewhat silly.

Overall, the series feels unpolished in that it doesn't live up to the premise's potential. As it is, this manga is decent casual readers, but it doesn't really stand out and capture your interest.

i have put it as "unfinished" after chap 18... i liked it up until this point but... in this chapn she truly demonstrates her lack of intelligence and it truly irritates me.. i cant stand reading it any more.. i see her decision as only a ploy to lengthen the series.

Unique plot and very good story. It's in the same category as those "solve the problem" manga (detective ect).
It's fun to read something new for once. You also immediately get into the manga without a slow start.

Edit: Omg, read chapter 18 and understand why the protagonist is the stupidest f*ck in the world... -.-

Edit2: It's fun again at least. But i'm sure she'll demonstrate her complete lack of IQ after this round too.

I've read up to chapter 16 of Liar Game, and I find it really interesting. I think it's not a manga that everyone could read, however, because there's a lot of calculation and such. Still, if you are like me and prefer that type of manga, i really recommend this. The whole 'battle of wits' thing is somewhat reminiscent of Death Note, I find, and Death Note has become insanely popular. Also, the art's really great, and it's rather unique seeing as the main character is rather naiive and is in no way the mastermind of the story.

This Manga called Liar Game is utterly ridiculous, predictable and intellectually not challenging at all. The premise might mave sounded fairly promising, however, the plot doesn't show any battle of wits.
Furthermore, the main character doesn't possess a highly developed intellect and is inept to do anything.
Not recommended, unless you like cheap "plot twists".

Mmm its good. I've watched the drama, and loved it, and started reading the manga, and hope its just as good or even better. Its the the same as far as I've read. <3
I love the way everything plays out. I like the characters too, even though they don't fit the genre too well, I like how its different.

Its intersting, however, as many have stated the main character has got to be the STUPIDEST ONE IN EXISTENCE! She is worse then shojo girls, which I must say, is saying something. Shes so aggravating. Because of her, it gets a 6, even though the story is fairly original and interesting.
