Liar Game

I've recently just watched a j-dorama entitled "Liar Game". It is about a game wherein the participants have to deceive the other participants in order to win a big amount of money. And being deceived by the other would also mean that they would be in debt of the same amount. It is a very stressful game, it is either you have a big win, or a big loss, what with the lowest amount they've played with is 100 million yen.

It is very exciting, and I was intrigued to watch because it would also test me mentally, as I would also try to think up of strategies to pass the very difficult situations have I been in the game. And I thought this series is about that, a strategic mind game, a different kind of suspense thriller that I have always loved. But I was wrong. This story is about how humans wouldn't think twice to deceive each other, and how no one trusts anyone anymore. And in that game, a girl is tested of her honesty and pure heart. Reminds me of Pandora's Box. There is still hope.

Ouran High School Host Club

Hahahaha! Just thinking of Ouran makes me laugh my head off! This is one happy funny crazy anime! All the characters (the hosts, that is) are interesting in their own unique way. The heroine, Haruhi, is not your typical damsel in distress which makes it cool... And Tamaki... Hahahaha! Don't let me start...
