Before I even got into Asian Drama's I was a fan of this manga called Liar Game, and thought it would be interesting if there was an anime adaptation of it. There wasn't so I settled on watching, and actually reviewing episodically the Japanese version of Liar Game. I didn't watch it out of enjoying … Continue reading Why I Avoid Live Action Adaptations From Anime And Manga – Using Liar Game As An Example
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!
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!

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!
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

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!
