One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend's cute high school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he's cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days.
Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she's actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told!
This manga was great until it metamorphosed into your average shoujo midway... So, the first two volumes are a 9, for me... but then it started melting into nothing.
So, this is one of those stories I would recommend start to read, but the moment you get annoy with it, stop and pretend that it finished right there as an open ending, where you can choose what happens next.
The last chapter is one of the most cringe situations I have ever read... it wasted the whole story away. Read it at your own risk.
This manga I read it along it was being published, so
it took a lot of time. The first few chapters I read them many times, because the story was very believable... the characters were very human and that is so difficult to find in manga/anime that whenever I find those gems, I cling to them. But I don't know if it was the editorial or the author lost it along the way... because it became a plane boring cliché shoujo little by little.
Liar x Liar is about a girl who ends up sort of by accident dating her step brother while in disguise, so he had no idea its actually her.
I'm sure you can already tell from the premise that it's one of THOSE rom-coms, the type with utterly ridiculous comedic situations, that many will find off putting for secondhand embarrassment, or because they find the main couple unlikable because they're always lying to each other. The thing is, I usually dislike that type of rom-com also, but I actually really liked Liar x Liar.
I'm sure there are plenty of readers that will not be able
to get over that premise and the fact that she is lying to her step brother, but I personally thought the author was deftly able to handle the tone of it that it never quite got to the point where I would normally think it distasteful. I think it really helped that the protagonist is constantly giving her best friend updates to seek her advice in this ridiculous situation, meanwhile you can practically see her friend kicking back and getting out the popcorn. It helps to reinforce the idea that this is all very ridiculous, and not to be taken seriously.
But then, in the last third or so, Liar x Liar really surprised me. The protagonist had to finally face realistic consequences for her actions. It really made Liar x Liar go from a ridiculous kind of trashy diversion, to legitimately really good.
This isn't a manga for everyone. As I said, many will be too turned off by the initial premise to want to read it. But if you can accept it for what it is, I think it's a very well done rom com of its type.
This Manga kinda Annoyed me. It's about a girl who has a step brother and she fools him into thinking she is a look alike of his sister and starts dating him. If you're thinking "how stupid would you have to be to believe that?" Well in this manga there is a lot of lack in common sense. The main character's are too hard to relate to. They are in their 20's but yet don't seem to have the experience and common knowledge of a 20 something.The main girl doesn't get into funny predicaments or thinks up crazy schemes. She just continues to lead on
her brother despite how much feelings he has for her "other" self. She never fesses up to him about who she is. By the 15th Chapter I couldn't read anymore. I felt like "why is she even doing this in the first place?" It just seemed cruel and selfish to me with no resolution or turn of events in site.
Some may like this, it's not terrible, it did perk my interest but in the end I just felt lead on like the brother in the story...
I personally started this manga because I was tired of drama, this manga made me literally fall on the floor.
Plot: A 20 years-old girl goes in town dressed with her best friend's high school uniform and accidentally bumps into her step-brother. He doesn't recognize her and the two of them started talking, the girl pretending to be someone else.
Characters: The main character is the best. She is hilarious, seriously, you'll love her.
The plot may not be too original, but the main character makes it very good. The manga may look stupid for some of you but I personally enjoyed it. You should totally
give it a try.
