Liar x Liar

One day, on a whim, 20-year-old Minato dresses up in her friend’s cute high school uniform and goes out briefly into the city. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru, who is actually only months younger than her. Since he’s cute, and a notorious player, Minato has had to deal with constant jealousy and suspicion from other girls all through their school days. Amazingly, she manages to convince Tooru that she’s actually someone who just happens to look a lot like his sister. He is so convinced that he starts trying to date her and, for various reasons, she goes along with it. What started as a simple joke is now evolving into the biggest lie Minato has ever told!

Avelys Rating: 7-8/10

Avelys Notes: Such an odd manga. It was kind of confusing trying to decipher the MC’s intentions. But at least she admits she’s a dumbass. The drama is good, it was hard to put it down. Also, if you’re going to read this, the scantalation seems pretty ugly at first (like really bad) but then it gets better. As well as the art. So if you’re hesitant because of the art, just hold out a little. There is so many love triangles it kind of gets confusing, especially when MC is leading a double life. If you like drama and just want to have a fun time reading, this is definitely the manga for you. Lots of romance and lots of awkward “wait so she wants to bang her brother or nah?” and “is he seriously stupid or is he pretending” and a lot of “can these people seriously not recognize her?” It does make me feel awkward when I don’t completely understand what she’s trying to do. Is she trying to be a sister? A lover? Is she as confused about her situation as I am? But I find myself not caring as I read on because there is so much drama, it’s great. I do love the dynamic between the leads, as they are pretty adorable. Just ignore the stoic lack of personality of the guy (okay he’s not that bad but the other guys are so much more interesting to read).
