Anyone think the that Juken no Kamisama girl's really tight and mean? Like really, such an attitude, wanting people to bow down to her. That's disgusting! I'm talking about the character of course. PLease, no misunderstandings I don't think so. If she doesn't act this way, she'd be mobbed by parent...

I am so extremely disappointed in Rei and Ken. Ken is slow, and emotionally closed off the minute he can really do something to change their relationship. He absolutely fails at expressing anything he's feeling other than pain. Rei, on the other hand, is just as bad. She seems as though she is, and...

Sorry... but I seriously don't get what you mean. Even in the manga Akiyama suspected the real X becuase of the check thing. He also suspected different teams becuase of how calm everyone was. He didn't think sunglasses person is X because sunglasses draws attention and not takes them away. In that...

I just had to stop in and say how much I love this drama and the SM part cracked me up! Did anyone else notice that in ep. 4 that during the SM part, at 3:33 right before Akiyama told Nao that she should vote "No", that when Akiyama looked up from the ground, there was a quick flash of the "yes"/"n...

This show is a lot more fun when people get to keep guessing. So let's not ruin it for others.
Totally agree, no more spoilers from me from now on :shhh:

Not necessarily. Esp since I think the next game will only bring us up to ep 8.5. We have plenty of time to do one more game if they want, assuming this is 11 episodes. Yes, but there's not enough time to do the round 3 in the manga either as it's still ongoing, so the writers may have to come up w...

Actually, I am pretty sure we will get original material. According to one of the interviews posted on the official site, the author of Liar Game said one of the things to look forward for in the manga is a different ending from the drama. So looks like it may end after the next 'resurrection' roun...

The manga is up to ep. 34 (or 35), just about 4 volumes. The 1st episode already covered half of vol. 1; at this rate, the drama may have to come up w/ original material after about ep. 8. As someone has already pointed out, the 1st 'game' is not very interesting but gets much better with subsequent...

Re: My 2 cents

You mentioned that 95 stayed true to the novel. I thought this version did a good job as well. The series added a few scenes but that didnt take anything away from the novel...There were so many scenes that were cut in 95 version as well but people still think it's the closest. 83' followed 1st edi...

Basically another piece of crap from Wong Jing. If you've read the novels, don't expect a faithful or even decent adaptation. If you're familiar w/ this guy's work, do expect a lot of sappy melodrama, cheap thrills, and illogical plots. Most of the main characters are miscast; Athena's character sh...

I watched the 1st episode and like it so far. I don't think the acting is 'fakey' if you're used to watching American sitcoms; this is a comedy after all. The comedic timing is very good and Keiko Mazusaka's great. She is not your typically mother-in-law in that she has good intentions but managed t...

My 2 cents

I will try to be as objective as possible on my comments. First some background info so people know where I'm coming from. I was born in Hong Kong and started reading ROCH when I was around 11 years old. This is my favorite Jin Yong novel and I've read it tens (may be hundreds) of times. I still hav...
