    Um is it me or is one page missing? O_o

    So basically Kimura is the traitor? Well no matter how strong they are together, they still have flaws, they all take it hard on Abe, yet she might be the one who believes Harimoto the most, and the other two are using her as a scapegoat sometimes.

    Last page is missing from some sites, but present on others. Took me like three tries before I found it.

    Liar Game 156 Discussion / 157 Predictions

    How many people think that this is a retcon, just to make things more interesting in Harimoto's group...I mean Harimoto is not really on par with either Akiyama or Yokoya, yet their group is still in the game clinging to survival...so the author removed Harimoto as figurehead and replaced him with an unknown quantity...

    So, because Harimoto and Mikamoto (Office Lady) were confused about Kimura (Shortbob) possibly agreeing to have Mikamoto discard her second set of cards if certain conditions were met and some dubious reasoning about bidding for Harimoto on Lot F (Lot A plus Lot F results in two pair. That's likely a good enough hand to get on to the next game, but is not a good enough hand to "win".), Nao decides that Kimura is the true leader of the religion? That's Sherlock Holmes level of stupid logical leaps and reasoning which ignores more believable explanations and I'm going to have to call B.S.

    It is. This "reveal" is not consistent with the Steal-a-chair game.

    Could we get both ways? Like Harimoto as the spiritual leader the one who gets people on his side by manipulating hearts(as was described in the manga), and Kimura the brain? (the sort of manipulative brain that Yokoya and Aki have)...I dunno...it just seems weird...

    If so, it would have to be such that Mikamoto and Abe do not know. Cult leaders are essentially god figures and it destroys the image when they have a member that is smarter than them.

    It does fit with how Kimura was the "leader" of Harimoto's group during the musical chairs game, so I don't think it's entirely unprescedented.

    I don't think Nao's outright wrong (Liar Game typically doesn't work like that with this kind of reveal) but I agree that there'll probably be more to it; Harimoto's clearly more than just a follower even if he isn't leader.

    That just falls in line with the previously known hierarchy:
    10,000 years- Harimoto
    1,000 years- Kimura
    800 years- Makimoto
    500 years- Abe

    Well I mean it could have been meant as foreshadowing, Kimura's leading the group under the guise of figurehead when the actual figurehead was Harimoto himself.

    Hmm...but this is where Abe's background comes into play...emotional brainwashing...and in such cases spotting the smarter person is a bit more difficult I guess...Mikamoto is an unknown, but in my eyes Abe's background served to show me how Harimoto gathers his closer allies/cronies...except Kimura as of now...

    If every time a new game starts Harimoto says: Lets do X and Kimura says: No, Y is a better idea and they always do Y, then it would not require a lot to come to the conclusion that Kimura is smarter.
