ライアーゲーム LIAR GAME Season 2 – Release Nov 09

Kumo Japan Drama sneak!!

Japan Drama Story:
After game 3 of liar game competition, Kanzaki Nao (Toda Erika) 戸田恵梨香and Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda Shota) 松田翔太 seems to escape from the game for good. One day both of them received an invitation from Liar Game organization to continue on with Game 4. As much as they hate to go back into the game, both of them still return to the game. Kanzaki Nao (Toda Erika) 戸田恵梨香 wanted to save as many players from the game and Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda Shota) 松田翔太 wanted to destroy the game organization and eliminate the competition for good. Thus Kanzaki Nao (Toda Erika) 戸田恵梨香, Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda Shota) 松田翔太 and their previous rival Fukunaga Yuji (Suzuki Kosuke) 鈴木浩介 team up to take on the challenge of Game 4 in Liar Game.

Feelings and comments:
I miss the first season of this drama. Still it won’t make much difference as the story of this drama is simple. Basically the game played is the most interesting part. It’s the game created in Liar Game which is fun and interesting to check out. So I’ll go for the first season and the movie version of Liar Game after watching season 2 still won’t spoil the sensation of this drama.
    As this is all about Liar Game, basically the organizer expects players to lie and trick others to win the game. That’s most players will normally do. Unfortunately there is one player that uses the opposite method to win the game. She is Kanzaki Nao (Toda Erika) 戸田恵梨香 and her believes and trust towards other player makes her a winner. This drama is mostly about mind game. It’s basically says that people are selfish when it comes to own benefits. When it comes to team work, believe and trust is needed in order to get things done. The only way to gain trust from others is to trust others first. Sadly not many people can do that because the one who trust first normally suffers a lot of betrays. Still that is the only way to find people who we can truly trust.

Things that caught my eyes:
The stages and game equipment looks cool. If there is such a theme park design according to the games in this drama, it should be fun to play.

Japan Drama Rating:
Worth watching. If you love to play games, especially related to mind games than this drama is for you.

It's wonderful finding a Japanese drama review site. It's so hard finding review sites for Japanese dramas! I'm glad I was able to find a review for Tokyo Dogs, I watched the first 15 minutes and stopped because of the video quality and I got a bit bored (I tend to do that when I watch dramas). Seeing your review, I shall give this drama another shot!

Yeah, it's really a good show. I love it. The plot is relatively simple as mentioned, but it's really how you logic things out and try to figure out what the main character need to do in order to win the game. I simply love it and watched both season at least twice. The movie is good too. Unlike typical shows, this really makes you think. Thus, I would recommend it to only those who love suspense and detective shows. It's worth your time!
