Be still my beating heart....
OMG! Finally a show really worth watching! Toda Erika plays this girl who is much too honest to the point of stupidity who gets pulled into a game called Liar Game. Basically she is given a hundred million yen and has to swindle her opponent who was given the same money. Any amount that she manages to get will be her prize money. She then finds out that a favourite teacher of hers is her opponent and unwittingly goes to see him.
Don't want to spoil the story but basically this show is about games of lies and deceit and this honest girl who is drawn into it. She then enlists the aid of a swindler, Akiyama to help her get out of the game. The only negative thing I've got to say about this show is that there are plot holes. However, I couldn't care less as I just look forward to the solutions.
The Liar game assistants are sexy. :)
Its hard to write a full proof plot involving games of deceit and it does a much better job compared to Kurosagi which was a horrible show IMO. I just want to see how Akiyama plays the game. Fuck, I can't wait for ep 5 to be subbed.
This picture does not do justice to how kawaii she is....
And the best thing of the show: Toda Erika! OMFG, she is soooooooo good. Seriously, she is so close to displacing Hirosue Ryoko off my favourite actress list. She just plays the innocent and baka girl so well that one can't help staring at her everytime she's on the screen. Of all the young actresses out there, she's the one who has shown the most range.
The S&M joke is a classic!
From playing the yankee girl in Galcir to playing Misa in the Death Note movies. Not to mention she is so fucking moe. I can't believe they put this show on at 11pm at night and crap like Joudan Janai get prime time. Seriously, its time to push her as a main actress.
I don't care whether she's S or M. Or she can be both. :)
Get this show now! You won't regret it!
