Toda Erika plays an honest college student, Kanzaki Nao, who receives a hundred million dollars one day, along with a card saying she has been chosen to take part in the “Liar Game”. The aim of the game is to trick the other players out of their hundred million dollars. At the end, the winner gets the hundred million and the loser is a hundred million dollars in debt. The next day, she receives notification that her opponent is her former teacher, Fujisawa Kazuo. She goes to him, seeking help, but ends up getting tricked into handing her money over. Desperate, she approaches the police for help, but they are unable to do anything. However, she is told of a mastermind swindler, Akiyama Shinichi, who is to be released from jail the next day. Desperate, she goes to him for help.
The lead actress, Toda Erika, who play the role of the cute Misa in the Deathnote movie, is one of main reason I was attracted to start watching the first episode. It was quite a fun show. Watching the sweetie pie portraying the innocent character and one thing to note: the way she sits, pure cuteness. I think the plot is pretty cool, a little Deathnote touch to it, let me wonder how the story will unfold, the first episode already tells much on the concept of the game. To think there will be a lot twists around the storyline, I recommend you guys to look out on this series..
Mayuko Iwasa will play some role in the show too. I don’t know, she’s not in the first episode. 🙂
Hope they don’t get remove.. 🙂 Thanks to the uploader and subs!
Ep.2 sub should be there soon.
