Liar Game 2


Liar Game 2

The naïve Kanzaki Nao and expert swindler Akiyama Shinichi have not heard anything from the LIAR GAME organization since the end of the previous game, so it seems they may have actually escaped. But Nao suddenly gets another invitation and is once again caught up in the game. This time, she has to team up with Shinichi and one of their previous rivals named Fukunaga, facing off against three more opponents in new games of deception, such as "24 Rensou Russian Roulette" and "17 Poker."

This was season two of Liar Game. Nao is thrown back into another round as she cannot bring herself to let others suffer through the giant debt people incur from the game. Shinichi had decided to sit out, but was convinced to come back to find out who is the one responsible for Liar Game.

I’m not sure why, although I do like the idea of how they got people to battle it out with their wits, I just don’t really enjoy watching Nao. Maybe because of her character. She’s overly naive for me. I usually like the more strong female types. She did show improvement in this season though by coming up with some of her own tactics.

This season they put in a formidable adversary for Shinichi. We got the clue that they’re somehow linked, but they never reveal how so until halfway through the drama. Kikuchi Rinko is always dressed in sort of a gothic lolita fashion with a cane. Not sure what’s up with the cane because it doesn’t seem like she even needs it LOL. One thing’s for sure though and that’s her goal to destroy Shinichi. She’s an interesting character.. I think she majored in psychology so she knows how to play with people’s minds and she also knows how people usually react. In that way, she seems to always be able to know how Shinichi is going to act and would be one step ahead.

You will have to watch the movie to actually knows what happens to Nao and Shinichi as they left the finals for the movie. Nice tactic to force people to watch it haha. Not something I’ll be rushing to watch any time soon though. Thought the first season was more interesting when the idea was more fresh.
