Let’s begin the games of lies, with a quick overview of the plot and the main character.

Liar Liar is a rom-com anime based in an elite school called Academy Island. At academy island, everything is determined by games that affect your rank. Winning a game will have you end up with your opponent’s stars, which is the currency used at Academy Island.

The person with the most stars gains the title of ‘Seven Stars’ and secures the top position. Your stars and ranking determine your living conditions during your time at Academy Island.

Hiroto Shinohara on his way to the elite school where everything is determined by games and stars, ends up defeating Sarasa Saionji who is the top student. This helps him secure the top spot at the elite school.

Everything is perfect except for the fact that his win was not a win. It was just a fluke but now he needs to stay at the top spot he secured for himself. There’s his maid who’ll help him bluff and lie his way through everything to maintain the status quo. 

Hiroto Shinohara- Is he edgy?

Edgy doesn’t fully describe the MC Hiroto Shinohara but the edgy factor is there. His survival at this elite school depends on every move he makes. This ticking clock brings out his edginess.

The trailer makes it look fun but an overdose will easily make it annoying. To keep up with mind games and stay at the top, we’ll probably get to see him being wise and witty, maybe ironically so.

The anime gives similar vibes as the anime Classroom of the Elite and No Game No Life at places but the light novel has been promising and distinctive. While the art style and animation look pretty generic in the trailer they’re nowhere near being bad. 

Conclusion 

The Liar Liar anime release will take you to Academy Island and tell you pretty lies or maybe not. But so far the anime looks fun and has an intriguing plot. With the big names lined up for this summer, will the anime manage to stand out and carve a place for itself? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, you can add this anime to your watch list and wait for it to come out.
