The perspective I'm reviewing this from is someone that has read the manga, found that the musical chairs arc was their favourite, and jumped ahead past halfway through season 2 just to watch this. This meant that I knew a lot of the twists and turns already. At the start of musical chairs everyone is … Continue reading Liar Game: Reborn Review – Musical Chairs!
Read the manga, then read this. Yes we're starting down this route again! For those who where wondering what happened to the last series, where I reviewed the Japanese adaption of liar game, I literally just got bored and stopped watching. Here's hoping that this doesn't happen here! Unlike the Japanese liar game the Korean … Continue reading Liar Game Korean Version – Thoughts on Episode 1
So the finale of the arc is here at last and everything is coming to a close! So I can now conclude my opinions of liar game once and for all, but how was this episode? Stationary Russian roulette sounds stupid but it's way more interesting once it's explained. There is a roulette with 4 … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 4 – The Conclusion Of Everything!
In the last episode review I made some predictions about how the game would take place and I was fairly happy with my predictions all things considered, and everything that I made that was wrong was oddly convenient and/or stupid. The first thing was, the deck is changed every time! If I knew this everything … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 3 – The Conclusion of 17 Poker!
At the end of the last episode they said that their was a twist which was a trap that fell into a game and I said that wouldn't really be possible. But that's because I didn't know that the LGT took the money when it came to a draw. Obviously if both players know what … Continue reading Liar Game S2 Ep2 – The Start of 17 Poker!
I thought that I might review the next arc in one whole post, but then episode one turned out to be one hour long! So I don't want to write what will probably be 2.5 hours of watch time into one post! This is the first episode I'm watching without reading the same thing in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action S2 ep 1 – 1 Hour Long Pilot!
Hey instead of writing about episode 11 and 12 individually I sort of skipped them because they were both recap episodes! You really don't need two recap episodes in a 13 episode show, it was just overkill. They disguised the recap by introducing a new character who was told the events as they happened. It … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action eps 11-13
This arc has been completely ruined by the show. I said it in the last episode and I'm saying it again, this arc sucks now. All of the betraying has been cut and everything's been changed to simplify it. So the first betrayal with Yokias clairvoyance worked out fine but then everything was made bad … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 10 – Destroying Their Own Arc
I didn't think the producers could really mess this show up very much, because I think the strange charm of the story could work. But they messed it all up again! First of all they messed up the easiest thing which was the setting. Instead of giving us a normal airport like the one in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 9 – Start of the Contraband Game
Here we are again to review another arc from Liar Game. ep 6 This was the first game of the downsizing arc so here are the rules. There are 9 players and only one of these people can lose. There are ten rounds and after every round people need to vote for who they want … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action – Downsizing Game Arc Review
I don't like reviewing whole episodes of this show when not a lot happens in it so I will be reviewing each one in the same post until the arc is concluded. I will write them in order, so the section of episode 3 will be written before the section for episode 4. Ep 3 … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action – Minority Game Arc Review
Let's continue with the second episode of this live action adaptation of Liar Game which is a manga you all should read. I had a lot to say with the first episode because I was just getting over the initial shock of the dramatic change in tone. This may be a little less content because … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 2- Weird Changes
The last live action Japanese TV show I saw was great teacher onizuka and it really didn't disappoint. So how did this version fare? Well it was ok, it never really reached the extreme highs of GTO live action but it's episode one and its early days yet. It seems like I'll be reviewing a … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 1 – The Manga Becomes Real!
As always there was a lot going on in this episode and it was yet again very dodgy but still entertaining. One thing that I’ve noticed about this anime is that although its visuals are realistic its plot isn’t. A school girl pretty much gets kidnapped every episode and I don’t really like that trope … Continue reading GTO Episode 3 Review!
On this day of JEARETTAS we’re going to cover the first three episodes of the new GTO anime and never talk to them again. Even though the old and new anime’s are stylistically different their plots are very similar. The new version dedicates 45 minute episodes too their stories whilst the other takes 25. This … Continue reading GTO Episode 2 Review!
Like many people I loved the great teacher Onizuka anime back from 1999. So when I saw that this anime had another more recent adaptation, I leapt at the opportunity to give it a watch and I was very impressed. As with any anime, any adaptation done with different staff will be extremely different and … Continue reading GTO Episode 1 Review!
