Liar Game Manga Resumes After 1.5 Years

Shinobu Kaitani's psychological thriller manga begins new game in Young Jump mag

After a gap of about one and one-half years, Shinobu Kaitani's Liar Game psychological thriller manga is continuing in this year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump on Thursday. The new manga will again follow the Nao Kanzaki as the genius con artist Shinichi Akiyama helps her in another high-stakes psychological test called the "Liar Game."

The Liar Game manga launched in Young Jump in 2005, and Shueisha published the 13th compiled book volume last year. The manga already inspired two live-action television seasons with Shota Matsuda as Akiyama in 2007 and 2009, as well as a 2010 film. Mikako Tabe (Kimi ni Todoke) will play a new game's heroine Yū, while Matsuda (Hana Yori Dango) will reprise his lead role in a second live-action film slated to open in Japan next March.
