One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend's cute high-school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he's cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days. Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she's actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told.

Note: Nominated for the 39th Annual Kodansha Manga Awards in 2015.

Silly Minato

Her plan seems to make a little sense until you realise that when they break up he'll probably completely relapse
It's quite a funny series though with a decent premise that it hasn't failed to live up to so far.

This manga's story develops slowly but promising. It has a good phase, will get you hooked up for more. It gets more and more interesting. Even though the ending is kind of obvious, but will get you wondering 'how' it goes instead.
Just finished the latest uploaded chap in chinese(ch 29), the most exciting one so far imo, since the real main chars' relationship is finally starting to change

I'd say the drawings are pretty average, but it's not to the point that it's bad.

But the story has really good plot, it keeps you reading it and wondering if

the step brother actually knows that Mina is his step sister.

I initially get to read this manga accidentally. fortunately, i chose to give it a go. The plot was the usual, but its got a good twist. Tooru is a wonderful character who seemed like a jerk but is really soft inside, you'll want to keep him forever. Read it. I've only read up to volume 2 so far, fortunately for me I can understand japanese. Volume 3 is not out yet... so sad...

I'm definitely not for stepsibling romances, however this one has potential. I like the art style, and the humor. Unfortunately there just isn't enough material yet to rate it too highly. At times I feel like there is not enough "history" being given... for someone who has lived over 5 years with another, even if you are distant, I feel like you would have more knowledge? But maybe that is just me.

As for the title...

My theory is that the liars in this are Minato (obviously) and Toru. However, I don't think Toru knows about Mina/Minato, but he acts cold/indifferent to her because he really likes her (hence him being a liar). And the other love interest is not as happy/nice as he appears to be, I don't trust him because he seems unstable.

Very funny, and not cliched. I like it a lot, DESPITE that I typically very much dislike the older female younger male category. It's definitely a fresh read from other typical step sibling romance mangas.

Drawings are pretty and very bright, the expressions of the characters are cute and nice too. The plot is okay, but it keeps you reading and wanting to know more of what's going to happen

Normally I don't squeal as much as I did when reading this manga. I couldn't help it though I just...thought the guy was the sweetest thing ever. Too bad guys like that don't exist in RL. lol smile Good manga!

How to let the mangaka benefit

AndyProk, if you truly want the mangaka to benefit, as we all do the mangaka of our favorite series' then you should buy the original when it becomes available in your region, since if there aren't enough sales the series will get axed. However, since the publisher gets most of the sales profits, if you truly want the mangaka to benefit, send him/her a direct donation with a letter of encouragement telling him/her what it's for, that you like the series, etc.
