Can't wait to see where this is going.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
