It was "Miura", not Mirua :P
It's Yokoya...he brings the juice to the story...Akiyama always pops in the last minute to tell him that he fell in his trap, but I like to see Yokoya performing more...
>.< I forgot this was a multiple section poll, so I only voted for one. >.<
My vote of course went to Akiyama. He is the inspiration of my user name after all. The lead male protagonist never disappoints to amaze me. Always with those moments of brilliance that makes my brain hurts at times.
I'm really not sure on who to choose. Nao has such a kind and sweet personality, and while she used to be quite dumb, she seems to be getting better at the game; Akiyama is cool and intelligent, and has a pretty funny sense of humour too; Fukunaga may be transgender, but she's still hot anyway ! I like how she's intelligent, yet at the same time very emotional (angry I mean ); Yokoya is sly and intelligent, I like how calm and collected he can be. I also love seeing his hilarious reactions when he loses; Harimoto looks so cool and acts in a pretty quirky way. Even though I really like his character design and his personality, I dislike the way he acts when he's lost his cool.
Then there's also simpathetic characters like Akagi and Four-Eyes who just seem so nice .
I don't think I have a favorite character here..... akiyama and yokoya have but slight differences, they seem mostly the same with their genius and all. Fukanaga.... not that big a deal since the revival round, quite uninteresting actually. Nao is quite plain although her obvious improvement in the game is interesting to watch. Not particularly interesting outside of that. I guess I don't have a favorite character...
I like Fukunaga because writers rarely use useful hermaphrodites. And Akiyama because he's so L like
I like Fukunaga because of the perfect U-Turn she made, the fact he fell in love with Akiyama and his profit based but still clever thinking
Next would be Nao when she has one of her *tricked ya* moments, soo adorable
I know what you mean . That scene in the Pandemic Game when everyone thought she and four-eyes were in the stall and she says "Actually we've been here the entire time." was hilarious!
I like Akiyama, because he is unpredicable
Why isn't Leronira in the poll?
Oh well I felt I can go with other, though, I voted for 5 choices and I will kind - heartedly explain myself why...
Ok so my favorite character in Liar Game is Nao she is the best female character in any manga for me, I like her "growth" as a character form being an innocent girl who always gets lied to. To a character that uses similar tactics to the one and only Harimoto. I really hope in next battle we get to see Harimoto vs Nao one on one.
Akiyama is a great male protagonist, he always explains things, he never shows much emotion and never really gets upset, well there was that one time he blushed when Nao told him that Fukunaga likes him.
And Fukunaga, the "good guys" team is just not complete without him/her, he/she is easily a good example of a villain turned good guy. I enjoy the time Nao is with him/her. They have grown to be friends in my eyes.
Akagi and Four Eyes are basically part of the team as well, I love how the mangaka made the team of people that have different personalities and yet one thing always brings them together ad that is they want to overthrow the LGT.
I loved the flashback of Four Eyes.
Fukunaga, with Nao and Harimoto coming close behind.
