Written by Haruki Kuou and illustrated by konomi, “Liar Liar” has been published from Kadokawa’s MF Bunko J imprint since April 2019. The series has been collected into seven volumes and has printed 150,000 copies so far.
The story is set at “Academy,” a school island where students compete against each other in a duel called “game” to determine their rank. Hiroto Shinohara got the top score ever in the entrance exam to the school island, which is the most difficult in Japan, and beat last year’s absolute champion, Sarasa Saionji, on the first day of transferring to the school. He becomes the “Seven Star,” who reigns supreme, faster than any other in history.
In order for him to fulfil his purpose on the island, he has to stay at the top even if it’s a lie. To do so, he’ll use anything, including cheating by Himeji, the beautiful maid who assists him as her master, and his complicity with Saionji, who is actually a fake lady. Win it all with lies and intelligence! The school brain game begins now!
