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.

The story is about a liar who uses lies to help people. Which is odd. I'm sure we have ALL been through the experience of like, "My dog ate my homework" read more

User Recommendations

In both Kurosagi and Itsuwaribito the main character is a swindler who swindles swindlers (sort of) and helps other people with it. The setting though is completly different with kurosagi taking place in the "present" japan and itsuwaribito in about the sengoku period. Still a recommendation because of the similar main characters.
It is true that they both have very different storylines and are different in many different ways, but they are both very similiar. One way is that the main characters both face dark times. They both have something they want to protect. Utsuho travels a lot helping people while Ciel and Sebastian help out the queen. They both gain allies on the way and face many hardships. They both have great animation and have a great storyline. Although they have many differences, such as the fact that their personalities are complete polar-opposites, they both are very amazing. So read it!
