    Also, Kaitani isn't keeping to his 3-on-1-off schedule.

    Liked the chapter, though I would've liked some more build up to it.

    Same here...Harimoto could've used some more buildup...especially since his position as leader was compromised, or well...revealed to be false...Kaitani did show us some shocked glances, a little bit of perhaps introspection, if you look carefully at the facial expressions, but still...I dunno....it seems a bit rushed...

    Two things:
    -Failure doesn't cause cults to fall apart, it actually causes people to rally together. If Kimura really had Harimoto wrapped around her fingers, his sudden reversal isn't really accurate.
    -I don't know if there is any possible way Harimoto's group can turn the tables, but if there is and this is all a scheme to pretend to work together with Nao/Akiyama at the end before exploiting it, I would take back all of the accurate statements I've made about how far the series has fallen.

    The last page with Kimira actually begin angry at what Harimoto just did opens up a possible defection of her's from the group. She will be going solo I suppose, maybe even team up with Yokoya? Though I always felt that convo between Harimoto and Nao will take place, somehow Nao was also the reason why Harimoto converted. Plus add Abe and that plo tline worked out perfectly, but the next rounds I do hope that something from this one complicates things in the future.

    Yeah losing this doesn't really shake their core beliefs in any way, so I don't think they're about to disband.

    I'm sure Kimura's gonna throw a fit and stomp off though.

    Eh, I wouldn't say it worked out perfectly. Abe never really did anything, and villains reforming after losing is not particularly good writing.

    That's fine.
    It all kinda make sense to me, and I'm happy that they defeated the villains.

    Now, the big problem is Yokoya.
    And apparently, he had figured out the way to win before the game even started, so he probably beat everyone else on his side already.

    Next game will most likely be a decisive one between Yokoya and Akiyama.


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    But it can not be denied that such an outcome was at least a bit hinted at, or foreshadowed, the whole demon thing with Abe was for this. Though it was a bit weird as to why Abe noticed they are in the Liar Game. So it was not completely satisfactory. And Harimoto was never a super villain, it was also hinted that him and Nao will sort of battle it out, and they kind of did, indirectly. Kimura vs. Akiyama and Nao vs. Harimoto, even though w expected Yokoya to duel while teaming up with Harimoto, perhaps ...

    And why is Kaitani mixing the schedule, it's hard to keep track anymore? O_o

    It's probably because we are at the end of the arc and Kaitani is out of ideas on how to get through to the next arc. It also likely portends another long hiatus before the next arc.
