Does anyone else think this feels like a Kare Kano rip-off?

Well, the starting point and idea seem to be pretty much the same, but the approach is completely different.
Besides, it's a common theme in Japan; to put up a decent front and keep your real self hidden (omote/ura, honne/tatemae), so there's bound to be several takes on the subject.

Although the two stories are similar as far as the "switching personas" goes, I don't believe Switch Girl is actually a rip off. I think Switch Girl is much more lighthearted and comedic, while Kare Kano is much more dramatic.
