From Del Rey:

Yaya is a naïve and trusting girl. Hard-rocking, butt-kicking Nana is just the girl to grab hold of Yaya’s timid demeanor and turn it upside down. Can there be anything that terminally shy Yaya and hyper-confident Nana have in common? Well, for one thing, they’re the same person…

Also, the disorder is called DID.

Personally, I really enjoyed this series, it's not too long so that it drags but is entertaining all the way through.

Yaya's alter-ego Nana is a very entertaining character to watch. I find the idea of different personalities in the same person brought up by the manga very intriguing... is there another possible 'you' lurking somewhere that just needs the right occasion to bring it out?

Anyways, I thought the character development for the main character in this series was done quite well, with Yaya getting stronger as a person as it goes on. I found her love interest much more believable than the average shojo manga hero which was good.

Overall I would definitely recommend this manga for shojo fans, and for those who like 'alter-ego' stories (eg DN Angel, YuGiOh!)

This was a pretty good manga, and had a good finish time. Any more volumes and it would have become repetative and boring. It's an interesting concept, and moves quickly. Avoids a lot of cliches, while still having the elements that make it a lovely shoujo title.

I like it a lot, ..well, it's better than some other manga i've read.
I like the art so much, and the story, even tho it's a bit too much i guess.
But yeah, it's really interesting and it kept me going to the end.
Usually i stopped in the middle if the story is not that god.

The story was promising but the chain of events within the story becomes too repetitive...(weak yaya gets bullied, nana comes to the rescue, then yaya forgets....then it goes back all over again).

I have to agree with everyone though, I like nana too.

I really like this story, though in all honesty, the first volume is the best volume.
Its really hilarious at times, and Nana is really a nice charismatic, violent girl. This is one of the few mangas where I actually took the time out to buy all the volumes, and visited Barnes and Nobles on the exact days it was suppose to come out (usually to be disappointed). It's nice and short, but the ending was lack-luster.
I agree that Yaya was a bit annoying, but there are people out there with that type of submissive personality... I don't think her personality ruined the whole story though.. -_-;;

Omg, the art, the plot and the characters were all great. I really enjoyed to read this one. biggrin I think the ending COULD have been a bit different, but I loved it anyway. ((: I'll give this a 10- (the minus is for the ending XD).

After reading the first couple of chapters, the story seems promising enough. With Yaya's annoying, weak personality... it'd help to keep in mind that the story is based in Japan - a bullying is a major issue there as, unlike in its western counterparts, the education system doesn't really do much to help. It wouldn't be a surprise to find a character like her in real life in Japan. So while Yaya's annoying, she's a character that reflects the real life issue - and that's how her advanture as such begins. Will she be able to become the confident girl she used to be?

It's definitely a dramatic (soapie?) piece for those who love their drama that is interwined with romance. The story is definitely interesting although I think at some point later on, the mangaka sends her work on the downward spiral due to how the other characters are used to respond to Yaya's psychological issue.
