Plot: Kanzaki Nao (Toda) and Akiyama Shinichi (Matsuda) have finally reached the final stage of the Liar Game. Will they be able to beat the game and shut it down for good?
What is good: Toda Erika’s acting has finally reached the level to match Matsuda Shota’s.
What is bad: The ending was a bit of a letdown.
Letter rating: B
I think my biggest problem with this series is how little the plot changes. The players still need to work together in order to beat the game but no one wants to. It’s frustrating. It also makes the game’s result obvious. In the end, I liked the series. I just would have liked it with a little more variety.
