Liar Game manga
Anyone reading this manga? I am very addicted to it right now. It's a relatively new manga serialized in Young Jump since the end of 2005. I think there are 38 chapters released so far.
The plot revolves around a naive girl named Kanzaki Nao, who finds herself participating in the Liar Game tournaments without any intention of doing so. In the first round, the sponsors send her a million yen in cash and the goal is simple: steal your assigned partner's money (the same amount) in 30 days. The catch is... if you lose, then you are in debt (1 million yen) to the company. Later she seeks help from Akiyama Shinichi and it basically turns into a battle of wits, lying, fun with probability... and a lot of suspense.
The spirit of the manga coincides with Death Note - sort of. There are ongoing psychological wars (getting more complex for each round) and underlying themes regarding morality/humanity. It's a really great series, in my opinion. Every chapter is interesting to read and I like a lot of the characters.
Apparently, there's a TV drama version of it airing right now... which I'm not exactly fond of cause they've changed a few significant twists in the plot.
But um... I guess I'll have to live with that.
