We started this journey with ten “perfect” guys, each more impressive than the last…But, nine of the ten are dirty rotten liars, despicable men with no qualms about bending the truth to suit their needs… (The guys are not in order)
We unmasked nine liars, exposing them for the scum that they are: Mama’s Boys, Gambling Addicts, Fanboys, Mobsters, a Divorcee, Scam Artists, Raging Lunatics, Cheaters, and even a “Drug Addict”! It’s been a long road and there’s only one man left standing…If you want a spoiler free review click, HERE, if not keep reading!
Since not everyone that reads my blog has finished the game I ask that you all keep your comments as spoiler free as humanly possible rather than stating the name of the liars instead refer to them by their liar number (ie. Liar X) and for the victorious man, “Mr. Right”… Thanks in advance! 😀

Please if you are interested in the game, download the game for free in the App Store or from Google Play and purchase the stories when they are available in your area. Also, this goes without saying, but this post will contain spoilers for Liar! Uncover the Truth.
So this post is going to be a bit different from the other Liar! Uncover the Truth posts that I’ve written, because this guy isn’t a liar… He doesn’t have a whole story arc dedicated to him like the other guys did, so this post will mostly be based on Mr. Right’s appearances throughout the game! Also, unlike the other Liar! posts, this guy doesn’t come with multiple alternate endings. At the end of the 9th Liar arc, Mr. Right and the MC confess their feelings and the credits roll… that’s it! There is no Scumbag End, True End, Secret End, Bad End, or Love End; however, that’s not the end of the story… Voltage promises to continue Mr. Right’s story in his Lovers Route, which will be out some time in the near future! So without further ado, the moment you’ve all been waiting on *drumroll* Mr. Right is….
Itaru Yuikawa is an easygoing FX Trader with a heart of gold and a heartbreakingly beautiful smile… *sigh* At the Matchmaking party, Itaru immediately stands out from the other guys because of his friendly disposition and his unexpected love of mascot character merchandise. He even likes the same mascot as the MC, Octokitty! So what is a guy as perfect as Itaru doing at a Matchmaking party? He’s handsome, sweet, has a great job that pays big bucks; women should be throwing themselves at him left and right!
No matter what, Itaru is always there when you need him, like a Captain Save-An-MC! Whenever the MC gets into trouble Itaru is there with bright smile and a warm embrace… He may be a bit awkward at times, but his heart is always in the right place.
When I first started playing this game, I was initially interested in Haruichi Mamiya, Sotaro Shiga, Keima Katagiri… Itaru didn’t leave a big enough impression on me during the prologue to care about him one way or the other. But, all of that changed after the 2nd Liar arc! I’m not going to lie, I seriously thought Itaru was going to be the 2nd Liar. Voltage did a really good job of convincing me that Itaru was a raging lunatic, especially after he made such a huge scene in that restaurant when a waiter accidentally cut the MC’s hand.
Not to mention the suspicious run in with a police officer that seriously had me questioning Itaru’s credibility… The cop flat out warned the MC to be careful around the guy… But, when the true Liar attacks the MC in a fit of rage, it is none other than Itaru that comes to her rescue! Let’s just say that after that, I felt like a complete jerk for doubting him… His appearance at such a critical point in the route caught me off guard, I was not expecting him of all people to be the hero. But, there he was like a knight in shining armor, ready to kick Toya’s sorry ass for even looking at the MC! From that point on, my money was on Itaru!
But, Voltage, just couldn’t let Itaru be great, nope they did their damnedest to make him look like a Liar in just about every single Liar arc in the game! Most of the time it was obvious that Itaru wasn’t the liar in question, but then there were other times when even I had to admit that my precious cinnamon bun looked suspicious as hell!
Of all the guys in the game, Itaru is by far the most suspicious! But, even with all of those bumps in the road, Itaru is the last man standing! Everyone I talked to predicted that Itaru would be Mr. Right, even I kind of knew that he was the obvious choice. I mean why else would Voltage try so hard to convince us that he’s one of the Liars? But, for every time the MC accuses him of being a liar, Itaru does something else that makes you fall for him regardless.
Whenever the MC is feeling down, Itaru is the first person to come to her aid. He always seems to be in the right place at the right time… and I know that sounds creepy as hell, but after dealing with all of those liars, it’s nice to have a sweetie like Itaru waiting in the wings. No matter what happens you can trust that Itaru will come running to your side!
But, it’s more than that, Itaru has been pretty transparent from the beginning. Sure he’s been on the chopping block more than any of the other guys in the game and sure, he’s probably got some skeletons in his closet just like everyone else. But, no matter what, he always puts the MC first! When the MC posts a sad message on FriendFind he’s the type of guy that will leave work early to make sure she’s okay. When someone threatens the MC, you can bet your bottom dollar that Itaru will be there to kick his ass! Even when he’s feeling down, Itaru is the kind of guy that will do his best to make you smile. Itaru is like a warm blanket on a cold winter’s night… He may not have started off as one of my favorite guys in the game, but after all of the lies and deceptions… Itaru has proven himself to be a man we can all trust…
Ah, one more thing… So if you’ll remember way back to the beginning of the game…. like waaaay back to the Prologue, the MC received a phone call from her mother in the country. During that phone call the MC’s mom pretty much said that she wanted to set the MC up with someone special, that is if she wasn’t already seeing someone. Upset at the idea of an arranged marriage, the MC decided to attend a Matchmaking Mixer in order to snag a man on her own terms…. well as the game progressed and the MC eliminated liar after liar, that little plot element was kind of fell to the wayside, until now that is… We finally find out the identity of the young man the MC’s mother tried to set her up with…IT WAS ITARU!!!!!
Alright! Crisis averted!! *crumples up angry letter to Voltage* I have been fangirling over Itaru since the 2nd Liar arc, so ya’ll can’t even begin to imagine how satisfying it was to find out that Itaru was Mr. Right! I have been waiting for this reveal since the beginning of October! Itaru is a prince and I am so glad that Voltage didn’t break my heart! I would have been so hurt if anyone other than Itaru had been revealed to be the MC’s soulmate! But, unfortunately, Voltage had to go and ruin my happily ever after by throwing in a damn M. Night Shyamalan twist at the end… Itaru may not be as perfect as he seems, he may actually be liar just like the rest! Nice try Voltage I’m not buying that crap… there is nothing Voltage can do to taint my opinion of dear sweet Itaru! But, just to be on the safe side, I’ll be getting his Lovers Route… you know, to make sure everything checks out…(Yes, I will be writing reviews for the Lover’s Routes, but not all of them)
I rarely play free to play mobile otoges, so for me to not only pick up a game like Liar!, but actually finish the damn thing, that really says alot about how good the game is! So, Voltage really deserves a slow clap, for getting me hooked on this game!! I can honestly say that this is the first time in my life that I have completed a F2P mobile otoge! I usually get bored with them fairly quickly, but there was just something about Liar! that kept me coming back to it every single day! As a whole I thoroughly enjoyed the game and I highly recommend playing! Liar! Uncover the Truth is a nonstop roller coaster ride from start to finish. The characters are interesting and the story is addictive, and even though I have a few issues with the game, I still think that Liar! is one of the most fun games I’ve played all year!
Ah yes, before I close this out… *ahem* A little while ago a reader asked me how I would rank the guys in the game, but at the time I was still finishing the game up so I didn’t give a concrete answer. However, now that I’m done with the main story, I think it’s time I give them a real answer… My Liar ranking, from best to worst:
Itaru→ Kazumi → Haruichi → Sotaro → Azusa → Shuto → Joe → Toya → Keima → Kunio
