In case you decided to essentially ignore the synopsis like I did, this really has little to do with Liar Game. The first chapter is about Akiyama's college days and the rest has absolutely no relation to Liar Game. However, each of the stories are pretty heart-warming and sorta involve risky gambles. The gambles are more like everyday dilemmas that involve either getting in trouble or succeeding at your goal.

As these stories are quite short, I can't really talk about them without spoiling them. I kinda guessed all the plot twists in the stories in advance... I dunno, there wasn't any specific reason for read more

"Liar Game: Roots of A" -- is supposedly a prequel to the long "LIAR GAME" manga. I haven't read the original one (its sequel) & this review is going to be on this 6 chapters manga/short stories.

-- All these 6 chapters are short stories based on different psychological phenomena such as FORTUNE-TELLING, PSYCHOLOGY, DESTINY & FATE.
-- I found the stories really heartwarming & each story has a good end. Once you reach the end, you really ask for more.
-- The MCs in each stories are really likable characters and with nice personalities.

Overall, It was a good read for me & read more
