    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    In the last Issue of Weekly Young Jump, here's the exact anouncement:

    Quote Quote:
    This year's 45th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that a second live-action film inspired by Shinobu Kaitani's Liar Game psychological thriller manga will open on March 3, 2012. Shota Matsuda (Hana Yori Dango) will reprise his lead role as the genius Akiyama, while Mikako Tabe (Kimi ni Todoke) will play the heroine Yū in a new game. The manga itself will resume in the magazine in November.
    From Animenewsnetwork


    So it is finally coming back really looking forward to it!

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    It seems so close, yet so far I wonder if we are set for a long arc or a long revival arc and then the next main game arc, wow this truly is great news after almost a year and a half after I caught up with it. This will bring the Liar Game forum back from the dead, out of any manga Liar Game has most potential for discussion.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    I'm still very skeptical about Liar Game actually resuming this time around... but a couple of sources other than the ones named above seem positive, so let's hope.

    And a bit more info about the movie, if anyone's interested (I've seen neither the TV drama, or the 1st movie, so I basically have no idea what I'm translating...)

    The movie starts with the financiers, who previously suffered a crashing defeat at the hands of the genius swindler Akiyama Shin'ichi and now intent on taking revenge on him, reviving the Game. The game they prepared to crash Akiyama once and for all is the Steal-a-chair/Musical Chairs (whichever's up your alley) Game. With Shinomiya Yuu (played by Tabe) participating in the Liar Game for the first time and the need to fight off the assassins the secretariat sent, an epic war of psychological warefare and crafty cheating is going to unfold before you eyes.

    I know myself, and I assume plenty of others, will be in need of a series re-read. It has been just too long for me to remember character names, the little intricacies and detaile et al...

    I hope the lack of answer to this question is not indicative of no scanlation group being interested in picking up the series.
    Heavy handed/terrible story telling where there is way too much telling us what is going on rather than showing us what is going on aside, the series is more interesting than most.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    Terrible? The whole thing of Liar Game is to discuss every little bit of thing that is happening, commentary from the masked men and players in every game is the setting of the story. It's the mangaka's style. I am sure some will pick it up after the hiatus, the group that scanned it before will surely will.

    There's no answer cause the precise date of the restart is unknown to the general public in Japan and otherwise. 'November', it says, and that's about it for now. Young Jump is a weekly magazine and usually released on Thursdays, so we can start actively wait for it next Thursday. And TDX is definitely picking Liar Game back up, so I see no reason to worry for now. We'll have a reason if, say, the publication doesn't resume by the end of November... ah, I don't even wanna think about such a gloomy scenario.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    Yes, groups will pick up the series because of the popularity, the problem is that the news for it's return is lacking as you said. No date or issue when it comes back in. It can mean at the beginning or end of November, and fans usually think it would be sooner, a general disappointment would be if it is indeed at the very end of the month. I guess in November is when the news would also be more specific.

    It being his style does not make it not extremely heavy handed. Instead of being able to experience the last game as it was happening, we were told what was happening then showed. Framing along with constant and necessary narratorial commentary to tell us what is going on is terrible story telling.

    Months ahead of time they might not have a specific date, but you would expect them to have a more firm return date as it got closer. I know if I was a magazine publisher, I'd be hyping Liar Game's return in the 3-4 magazines before it came back.

    Re: The Liar Game Hiatus Thread

    Well most read Lair Game for the explanations. >.>
    Every Game is somehow explained in the end, the mangaka uses different techniques to reveal the true winners and such at the end. The last one was done indirectly to give it a more unexpected ending even to us. To keep us on the edge of the seat. We never really see what is going on because most of it is mind activity of the players. Interactions are rare.

    FYI that magazine is a weekly magazine. If it says back in November I assumes it means back in one of the issues. I am sure we will know more 1 week before.
