I thought that this manga had all of the right things to make it one of the greats. The drama of this high school girl, Yaya, who has another personality inside her, named Nana. The story was very well put together, and portrayed the life of a teenage girl who does not know who she is, and struggles through it.

This manga I recommend for people to read. It's very entertaining and heart wrenching. The art isn't the greatest, but once you get past that, you will fall in love with it.

We've all been there, we have all had those situations were we just stared into the mirror and wished we were someone else. Othello follows Yaya; a girl who wishes for nothing more to be brave, and in doing so creates another personality to combat the problems she is to afraid confront.

(well, not totally because many times, Nana saves her from being bullied.) She, in spite of her low profile personality, has a passion for singing and cosplaying (she likes gothic fashion).

She likes Shohei, the lead singer of the rock band Juliet but soon read more

Okay, I fell in love with this manga when I was 9 (five or more years ago). I loves the story and thought it was truly amazing.


Honestly, I gave the story a 10. Since it was one of the first manga I read, I really enjoyed it. It was cute and very enjoyable. You'll want to read more.


The art isn't the best but, it's really good. So I have art a 9. The characters are drawn really well. I really liked how Nana was drawn, she grabbed my attention.


I gave characters a 9. They were all unique and had fantastic read more
