Heartwarming / Liar Game: Roots of A

Go To

  • The patient Kyo (gifted at darts) is playing a game of darts for his freedom from the abusive Green Mountain Starlight Park "treatment center" (you must see to believe). After defeating an employee (with a perfect score against a former US champion!) the director brought in the hopes of crushing Kyo, the director forces one last challenge: throw a dart into the apricot in Minoru's mouth (which would be bad for Minoru if Kyo misses). After Minoru gives a Rousing Speech that all the patients had potential and were not sub-human, Kyo throws the dart right into the apricot and wins his freedom with great applause from the patients. We later learn that the patients were released and returned back to their peaceful lives, the director (and presumably the rest of the staff) were arrested, and that Kyo won the darts World Championships with another perfect score. Truly inspiring.

  • @Lovers has a young man—Hikishi—who lied about being rich (he was a common factory worker) who sacrificed a lot to keep up a rich facade to impress a high-class lady (Hakura), and they were dating for over a year. However, Hikishi was unsatisfied with such an uneven financial relationship, even though believing that he was destined to be with Haruka. He turned to @Lovers, a dating website (in a short time later it was revealed that those who married with its matches never divorced), which resulted in Hikishi trying to hook up with a highly compatible (99.9%, where 95% is 1 in 200 million) lady...Satsuki. When Hikishi finally met Satsuki in real life, he realized she was the person he was dating all along...Hakura. After a brief argument, they laugh and share a kiss at the end ("I knew we were destined to be together"). Of course, you probably expected the ending, though it does nothing to ruin the effect.

How well does it match the trope?
