Hello guys!

I just wanted to recommend Liar Game, which ranks as one of my top must-read manga! Shocked Written by Shinobu Kaitani, Liar Game is a manga with an exciting plot that keeps you thinking! Roll Eyes


The main character, Nao Kanzaki, is drawn into the Liar Game Tournament unexpectedly and is forced to play the game in order to avoid going into debt. The basic rules of the game is that players are loaned money in the sums of millions and has to play against each other in a round to determine the winner. Games within each round vary but mostly involve strategy games, e.g. poker, voting, etc. The money is basically used as a key motivating factor in the game influencing player's decisions to avoid going into debt or to make a fortune. Inevitably, players turn to cheating to try to gain an upper hand against opponents. The story takes a turn when the brutally honest Nao engage the help of a genius swindler, Shinichi Akiyama, to help her in the game.

Currently, the manga has covered six rounds (four main rounds, two revival rounds) but it seems that the mangaka is on hiatus. Not sure why though.

Hmm I really thought that Liar Game in the same genre of manga to Death Note, just that is it more fun 'cause they are actually playing games. My friends and I even went to the extent of playing out some of the games in the manga, check Minority Rule. LOL I have even seen other forum create threads to play the game. It was hilarious! Anyway, do check it out! Cheesy

I marked that One Shot Bench for later reading, it looks interesting -- and actually very much the kind of thing you find in Major.  It can be read here if you are interested:

Ah great! Guess I'll check out Major when I have the time...One Shot Bench looks quite promising so far.

hmm is it really that good? I don't know much about baseball so puts me off a little reading about it. but there's a new baseball manga out by Kishimoto Masashi called One Shot Bench that i'll definitely look out for. You guys seen it yet?

I like how some mangas teach morals, impart ideas and show the different way of life people lead, through their storylines. FMA is one of these great mangas. Hope to see more great work from the author!

Does anyone know more about the recent announcement from publishers about taking a stronger stance against scanlations? awww many of the useful sites no longer host manga series for online view. (e.g. Onemanga, mangahelpers etc) hmmm not a very netizen-friendly decision but i guess the authors have the right to their work..I hope they can work on a way to bring manga onto the web openly so that everyone can enjoy the awesome work by all the great mangakas.

what do you all think about this?

Thanks for the info! It really helps to put the conversations in context now that I know why they are used.
15  The Honky Tonk Lounge / Getbackers Manga Discussion / Re: Who here loves Japanese honorifics? on: May 19, 2010, 07:41:33 pm
