Some anime characters have a "loose" relationship with the truth. This is a polite way of saying that some characters lie as naturally as they breathe. These anime liars will bend the truth so that they can manipulate others for personal gain, keep dangerous secrets, or appease a deep-seated emotional need. No matter what their reasoning is, anime characters who lie regularly can add much-needed tension to an otherwise commonplace story.
When a particularly untrustworthy character steps on-screen, viewers are left to wonder how and when the liar will get caught, and what the wide-reaching effects of the deception will be. Depending on the situation, one might end up loving the character for their crooked ingenuity, or one might just want to throw them out a window for being so terrible. Either way, these characters add spice to the story.
