Two years after the end of LIAR GAME, Fukunaga receives an invitation to attend a new session of the game and his greed pushes him to accept the offer. He will then find an opponent he knows only too well in Yokoya.

The two men will compete in a duel called Taboo Game, during which they will have four successive rounds to figure out a way to steal 100 million yen of their opponents money without breaking the taboo. Add Synopsis In Spanish

Plot: The special “Fukunaga VS Yokoya” transmits the same surrealistic and mysterious vibes as its prequels due to the use of the original OST and setting.
The game itself is sufficient to mildly entertain you for an hour but it’s not up to Liar Game standards.

The main problem revolves around the question who’s going to take the lead now that Akiyama’s gone. In the first third of the special close attention is paid to Fukunaga, but later both protagonists are depicted the same, distant way, which let’s the question arise:
Why would I care?
With nobody to sympathise with left the tension drops quickly.

Actors/Characters: Yokoya doesn’t appear as mystical and especially reserved a character as in previous episodes as the entire special spotlights only upon him and Fukunaga.
Suzuki Kazuma acts well but keeps up a surreal feeling thanks to his unnatural white hair, x-ray eyes and choice of clothes.

Mushroom/Fukunaga is as crazy and cunning as ever and Kitamura Soichiro’s performance is satisfying.

Music: ¡Estupendo! The original Liar Game tracks are outstanding and magnetising as ever.

Rewatch value: None. Unless you are either having troubles following the story’s progress or enjoy watching the special from a different perspective.

To make it short: It’s an agreeable but unnecessary supplement that’s mildly entertaining but lacks the originality and cleverness of the original series starring Matsuda Shota.
