Liar Game is Brilliant

As much as I like this manga, I’ll be the first to admit it’s not for everyone. If any of the following applies to you, don’t read Liar Game.

If you’re stupid, don’t read Liar Game. I don’t want anyone crying to me because it’s too hard for them to understand.

If you’re a pussy, don’t read Liar Game. I don’t want anyone crying to me because it hurts their feelings to see all the characters being mean to each other.

If you’re a pedophile, don’t read Liar Game. Not a single character is underage.

If you think Kaiba is better than Kaiji, don’t read Liar Game. You’ll be happier staring at something shiny.

If you’re looking for something with useless moĆ© traps, don’t read Liar Game. The traps are all crafty and sinister.

If you didn’t like One Outs, don’t read Liar Game. They’re the only two original works of Shinobu Kaitani.

If you think the intelligence of a story is direct function of how many metaphors it has, don’t read Liar Game. Keep salivating over the novitaminA block no matter how many pretentious, downright-crappy-to-slightly-above-average shows it puts on.

If you can’t put up with a pathetic lead character for several volumes, don’t read Liar Game. She’s no Raki, but I’m often tempted to punch her nonetheless.

If you don’t want to read a manga so good that it motivated me to watch a live-action J-Drama, don’t read Liar Game.
