[Drama of the Week] Liar Game (7/11-17/2010)

My friend Jimmy who is obsessed with dramas got me to watch the first season of this one and since the second season is almost fully subbed (just have to wait for the movie), I think it's about time I finished off the drama and maybe check out the manga.

Runtime: 1hr/ep
# of episodes: 20 + 1 movie
Kanzaki Nao is an honest college student who receives a hundred million yen 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 yen 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.

[Anime of the Week] Shinesman (7/11-17/2010)

I highly recommend watching the English dub because it pokes fun at the sentai genre of anime as the Japanese version does not. I watched both, its a much more enjoyable 2 episode ova with the English dub. Trust me.
