Liar Game is Death Note, Code Geass and Kaiji done right without dumbing anyone else down to lift them up in the intelectual criteria!

A shame this guy is such an underrated author...

Well this dude is clearly an underrated mangaka. His brain is able to create some great strategies, even adapted to an sport such as baseball (he wants to focus the struggles players have like if it was a mental battle) and know a lot about human behavior, as exposed in Liar Game. Titanic effort.

i agree with ununpentium, one outs ending was great, and liar game was decent.

Great mind!

Very underrated

I just don't know how did he think up of all the games in Liar Game!

This guys must have done very good research in many fields

like Mathematics (at least he should be good at it) & Psychology.

One of the games even utilizes a concept from Physics!

Let's not forget Gambling of course lol.

All while keeping things entertaining and filling his games with projections on society.
