Synopsis

Tamiya Nika is a beautiful, outgoing, popular high school girl. She has just the right look, just the right fashions, and is everyone's friend. What everyone at school does not know is how hard Nika works to keep up this perfect image, and what she is REALLY like at home. When not at school, Nika is a scary, sloppy, tight-fisted girl who wears glasses, an ugly sweatsuit, and has her hair pulled back into unattractive buns. She lays around playing video games and reading manga. Her attitude is bossy and cranky, and she travels far out of her way to shop where she won't be recognized.

Every day, Nika "Switches On" with a strict regimen of beautification that involves primping and plucking and careful dressing. The only person who knows about Nika's Switched On/Off modes is her best friend, who is also aware of the reasons behind the changes.

However, soon a second person finds about about Nika's personalities - someone who has his own On/Off switch, but in reverse! His name is Kamiyama Arata, and he is a recent transfer student. He meets Nika when she is in OFF Mode, and then again at school when she is ON. However Nika can see that he has his little secret. At school, Arata wears thick swirly-eyed glasses and messy hair that make some bullies think he is an otaku. However, at home, he ditches the glasses and is downright gorgeous! He is just the opposite of Nika, but why?

I guess I get the honor of writing the very first review for this.Now that's nice.
At first it was its title that caught my eye cause it was so weird and I was wondering what the deal was and gave it a try.I read a few chapters at first and liked it,but like I always do,I left for the time being.After months it wondered around my head,but unfortunately I could not remember at all what it was called,until I did and read many more chapters.

Now as for the story,which I have rated as 7 out of 10.
It's about a girl,Tamiya,who is very pretty,fashionable and popular read more

As i can remember i was randomly checking the list of mangas to decide which one i should choose and just then this manga pop out >.< it has an eye catching name as "switch girl" is really a weird name XD but i really liked the character Nika who is confident, pretty (leaving her OFF mode XD) and totally funny !! She is caring one and maybe that is the reason Akira is attracted to her :3 And the sense of costumes is really awesome !!! The plots are always interesting and as a reader i will give out 9 points out of 10 read more

We're in 2012, and just read this manga... so it's a proof that his works will pass through time. And don't worry I didn't find it in a garbage.

Well, I'm a guy and read it, yeah really. First it was by curiousity, but then found myself enjoying it. So many funnies situations, so many wicked faces. But still there's a lot of "girl-inside" jokes I can't understand, however I laugh so many times while reading it.

I really like her sens of humour and how she manage draw it on paper. Really funny characters face. Like we say, "One image worth thousand of words." read more

This manga has been a memorable one to read into. A lot of shoujo manga's that Iv'e read seems to have a certain pattern to it's plot. Everything is getting repetitive and boring so I decided to read Switch Girl!!, the title actually caught my attention.
If you want a new series that you feel like getting a laugh on this manga is totally recommended.

Being a girl is really difficult, caring for our looks and actions is a must for us because the world thinks that our job is to act pretty and to behave maturely. The story of Switch Girl shows read more
