Synopsis

"Can a liar lead a life of good?"

Utsuho's truthfulness as a child resulted in an enormous catastrophe, and he decided to lie from that day forward. Raised in a village of orphans by a monk, Utsuho is an unrepentant troublemaker. The monk eventually inspires him to help people, but there's no way Utsuho's going to lead an honest life! Instead, he's going to use his talents for mischief and deception for good!

This is an absolute must-read manga. If you read Naruto, you will love this. The story is set in the early years of Japan stemming from a small mountain village. There we find the hero of the story, a teenage orphan named Utsuho Azako. He is a self proclaimed itsuwaribito (one who masters the art of theft) whose philosophy in life is that lying is the ultimate weapon and at the same time, the ultimate savior. Now this is one of his most likable traits. Not only does he use it so often, he lies about lying, and read more

This isn't a review this is just a guide. No just kidding it's a review.
This manga has multiple scenarios like this and each one is absolutely amazing. It plays with my mind and has battle scenes. Not the intense ones you would see in other mangas but you see psychological battles going inside the mind. It makes me really question what's a lie and what isn't. But enough of that. Let's get technical.

At first the series is somewhat episodic--the protagonist, Utsuho, going off on various journeys in which he recruits a few members in to his 'family', which lasts the first handful of volumes. Afterwards, the 'main story' begins, which is his quest for the mysterious Kokonotsu treasure. Now to reviews...

Story (8)
Oh, it's not terribly unique, granted, but it IS interesting. Utsuho is a clever and strong protagonist, and not just a good liar either. He's smart, able to think quickly and calculate good strategies. This helps the manga discard any of the 'I MUST GET STRONGER!' plot lines and focus on the arcs. Each is interesting, read more
