The combined sixth and seventh issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is revealing on January 8 that Shinobu Kaitani's Liar Game thriller manga will end in the eighth issue on January 22.

Shueisha had revealed in April that the manga was entering its final story arc. The manga had before then been on a year-long hiatus so that Kaitani could prepare for the new arc.

In the original manga, a woman named Nao Kanzaki is caught in a dangerous high-stakes competition known as "Liar Game," and a genius con artist named Shinichi Akiyama comes to Kanzaki's aid.

Kiaitani began serialization in 2005, and Shueisha published the 18th volume in Japan in December. The manga has inspired two live-action films, two live-action television series, and two live-action online series.

Crunchyroll added the Japanese television series to its streaming lineup this summer.

The series also recently inspired a Korean live-action television series that premiered in October.
