but yokoya's team was top 3 so theyre ostensibly not infected
no that was the sample round everything has been reset and they have yet to reveal the 2nd infected person
I don't see why Akiyama didn't just send Akagi there instead of stopping everyone. That way, he would have crushed Yokoya right there -_- He used stopping everyone as his primary plan, and Akagi as his secondary. I'd have gone the other way around.

Well, I don't think Akiyama should've had Akagi go over there. For one reason: if he would have gone, there would have been nothing to stop the others to go too, until there were six in Yokoya's group and a win for him.
Oh, poor Nao. No one EVER believes her...ever. *Sigh*
Anyway, I have no idea what they'll do to find out who the other infected person to do...if it's not Akiyama himself. Which would be awful in my opinion. Why? Oh, because he didn't tell Nao or Akagi and he is only prolonging everyone's despair and defeat.......for the moment.
-I’m finally all caught with Liar Game and I so can’t wait for the next chapter!!! Liar Game is definitely one of my favorite manga series. I love it!
-Akiyama vs. Yokoya was awesome. I adored the way in which Akiyama impeded Yokoya from getting allies in this round. Akiyama is so smart and amazing, isn’t he?
-I’m enjoying the little Ms. Mummy vs. Mr. Mask that is going on inside the monitor room. I like how Mr. Mask is rooting for Akiyama while Ms. Mummy is rooting for Yokoya. It is very interesting to read their POVs about Akiyama vs. Yokoya.
-I know Nao is naive, super positive, trusting, and kind, but sometimes she is too much!!
-I wonder who the other infected person is, I think is the muscular guy but I'm not sure...
-I can’t wait to read chapter 92!!

Eh. Things would be so much easier if they would just listen to Nao. Seriously.
I think that the guy who moved to not be the closest one to Yokoya is the other infected one, he was the only one who moved when akiyama suggested that the person who joins Yokoya´s group is most likely an infected one...
But I guess this is where human nature prevails/falls. On one had, there's no reason not to be cautious, but on the other hand, honesty is the best policy.
What I love about the Infection Game is that its so similar to the first revival round, but so many of the cautions and restrictions are made purely through people's anxiety and doubt for everyone else. If people's boundaries were made visible in this game, I'd imagine the room would look like a labyrinth.
Not only is this the final Revival Round, in all of the members' eyes (besides Yokoya, Nao, and Akiyama), this is their last chance to stay in the game at the slightest chance to decrease their debt. That small glimmer of hope of surviving and getting out of all of this clean is what's keeping their sanity, but at the price of being easily manipulated. People like Akiyama and Yokoya will absolutely prevail (or fail, depending on the situation) throughout this because they have so many, er, pawns and scenarios to deal with at once.
I say pawns because, if you think about it, most of these people just look like ordinary citizens dragged into a hellish game of lies, with only a few good manipulators and geniuses to go around. And then there's Nao. XD If there is a connection between any of them, I don't see it. Also, I still do ponder about what lies at the end of all of this...it'd be interesting to see what, if anything, is the prize.
Also, why is it that the Liar Game officials are assigned to different people? Like that lady to Yokoya? What's the point?
Ooooh! Guys! The latest chapter is out!!
Trust is the name of the game, and so far they're screwed. But his little game, if I think he's going to use it like I think he will, will be ingenious. He's already got everyone mesmerized and focused on HIM. Not on the game OR an Infected. ^_^
If I think he's doing what I think he's doing, then someone isn't gong to be able to stay quiet and will fall under the pressure to reveal themselves as the other Infected. In all likelihood, Akagi will be the guinea pig...and it'll really push Akagi and Akiyama's trust of one another, not to mention the rest of their group.
Oh, and this manga is so aaaah!! I. Hate. Cliffhangers. Like. This. Gaaaah! (XD)

Why didn't they tell everyone Akagi's infect, have the 3 of them contact, and when the results from the round went up, everyone would see that they were telling the truth?
Ah, I have no idea what the hell Akiyama is doing...But his magic trick...Is not a trick at all. Pure physics. He is using the frequency of his movements to make it seem like magic. I do it myself sometimes, to impress and annoy people.
That explains it better than I could. As long as you did not fail grade 11 physics, you should be fine.
No idea how determines who was the infected one though...Unless he just outright bluffs his way through that, pretending to be a wizard/or lie about how the pendulum trick works.

I'm thinking he is going to do his trick on who he suspects is infected. By walking around, he could read their expressions and body language and then selecting a player. We know he is very good at this from round 3. Having a psychology major is like child's' play when figuring out the reason behind the other players actions.
Just started reading this today, and finished volume 2. Very good so far. I can see why I enjoy this so much, because the creator of the series did One Outs, one my favorite anime. I hope someday it gets released stateside so I can properly give the manga it's dues (that and One Outs too...both would be rad).
