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?

Preliminary (22/170 eps)
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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (65/170 eps)
This manga started out well. But i noticed that as it went on it kept repeating itself with the new characters, the mangaka added characters just for the main protagonists can 'face a hurdle'. There was a constant 'problem' they were like short arcs which usually ended up with Nika winning and as I proceeded reading the manga and these short 'problems' came up i knew that Nika will end up winning even if it thrilled me even just a bit. Of course, it wasnt all characters that were like this (e.g four-glasses, Nino etc.) However the manga was pretty cute when there werent any ...

Preliminary (10/170 eps)
The only reason I started reading this was because I was looking for a story similar to Horimiya. With the exception of the premise of the leads living secret lives, not much is similar. The comedy is not great, and most of the situations are forced. I might have continued reading a little further, but the female lead is stupid. A guy threatens to blackmail the female lead into sleeping with him, she refused wich I respected, but then she meets with the perpetrator. The perpetrator begins flirting with the female lead, and then she begins to have some romantic ...
