Storyline

Trusting, gullible Nao suddenly finds herself participating in the mysterious Liar Game, a game where the players are issued large sums of money which they then have to cheat each other out of. A few get rich, while the rest find themselves in debt for life. Nao's opponent is her former teacher. Relieved, she goes to him for advice, but is tricked into giving him all her money. With no idea of how to retrieve the money to avoid debt, Nao is desperate. When she gets a tip that a genius swindler, Shinichi Akiyama, is about to be released from prison, she turns to him for help. With some initial reluctance, Akiyama agrees to be her right-hand man in the game. As the two get pulled deeper into increasingly difficult levels of the game, it gradually becomes clear that their participation was far from coincidental. Written by Anonymous

The manga's style is translated, but not always the substance
26 March 2014 | by gippegienoSee all my reviews

Liar game is based on a Japanese comic, a manga, and you'd expect Japanese peeps to transfer the series into a different media perfectly. Well, there are a couple of issues.

It's actually really good, acting is great and manga-like. It's very stylish and the games get explained in a nice way so you can follow everything, as it's based on a manga where you'd have to reread a lot of lines.

The only thing that's annoying is that not everything stays true to the manga, plot line is a bit more dramatic and they made some character changes, which bothers me.

If you're unfamiliar with the manga, you'll probably like this cunning thriller full of mindgames.
