Man, at this point i really wish that somebody in Japan would be dared enough to get Liar Game animated. I've seen the Live-Action and, whilst very faithful to the manga, it felt rather dull and generally fails at capturing the thrill and shock value which makes the manga so very entertaining. Anime would be much better medium to adapt it, i think.

I love Liar Game! Sad hear that it's ending soon, but then again, they can't keep up the tournaments forever.

Same. When it went on hiatus for around a year I was about to just go ahead and read the series since I wasn't sure when it would end, but now I do. Definitely high on the plan to read list.
