Konbanwa, everyone! Ogenki desu ka? Mishi desu! Many things have been happening last month and this month, I have been very busy in my personal life and on this site. I am so happy that I got to do my first post in fashion, there is so much more to come. I want to thank you all for being so patient with this site as it is new and we are trying to get it going. Sometimes I don’t get to spend as much time on it as I would like to. I have some really good news, though. I am coming to the end of my first class and am really happy about that. I think I will end with a C. Not the grade I wanted but I can live with it. So today I am going to do my second post for Jdrama yeeeeeeeeeeah!

I love Jdrama most of the time it makes me cry so I have to keep a big box of tissues by me lol(ˊ̥̥̥̥̥ ³ ˋ̥̥̥̥̥). Today I am going to do a Drama that I have been watching lately and then I will work down from there. So it is going to go from the latest Drama that I have watched to the later ones that I have watched. So today I am going to review with you a Drama called Liar Game. I am very excited about this drama and simply love it. Let me tell you that you will feel many emotions. One of them is anger towards some of the characters and being annoyed at some of the characters mainly one…..I will not say who I will let you figure that one lol! Okay so now time to get to the story. Are you ready?

 

Story

 

This Drama is about a college student named Kanzaki Nao who goes to see her father every day at the hospital, one day after returning home she found that she received a card along with 100 million yen. She gets trapped into playing the game and her first opponent is her old junior high school teacher, who she thought that she could trust. That was not the case and Kanzaki ended up losing her 100 million to him. She attempts to get help from a genius swindler by the name of Akiyama Shinichi  who was being released from jail for swindling Japanese number one scam company. At first, he doesn’t want to help her, but eventually he comes around to help her but for a price. What will happen next? Will Akiyama really help her or will he scam her too? How far will this game go? It really is truly amazing what people will do for money, and how money can change a person’s character(`◕‸◕´+).

Nao Kanzaki – Main character. She is a college student who is really really honest. Sometimes she is called stupid honest Nao. She is like this. If she picks 1 dollar up in the street, she would bring it to a police station. She is really naive and honest. The reason why she keeps on participating this game is to save all of people from this liar game. She tries to achieve her unrealistic mission against the greedy game.

Shinichi Akiyama – Main character. He used to go to famous college where smart people go to. He became a graduate school student and took psychology. His mom was committed suicide by Multi-Level Marketing business. To make a revenge, he became a swindler and broke their business. After this, he was arrested and spent time in a prison. His mother was exactly like Nao. To save her, he starts to cooperate with her. He is a genius person. It is fun to guess what he is thinking. Because he always went over my head. lol

My Review

 

Liar Game Recommendation Chart

I seriously loved this drama, I couldn’t take my eyes away from it. Sometimes I would stay up watching late telling myself only one more episode and then it would turn into one more lol. I was so tired to go to work the next day. This drama will keep you on edge on what is going to happen next.  Just when you think they have been beaten Akiyama pulls something out. There are some minor annoyances with the people at least for me lol. That is what they want you to feel when they put this together. I could watch this drama again and again and never get tired of it. I recommend this drama to everyone. I think that you will completely enjoy this drama, But if you don’t want to have to think of a drama this isn’t for you. It will keep you in suspense all through the episodes. If you have already watched this drama feel free to rate it and talk about it with other people. That is it for me for now, I am off to work now. Thank you for coming to visit me. Until next time Ja^^ne!
