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.

Good for boredom...?

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.

the art is very nice, i admit, but give me a break, the story got cheesier and cheesier imo. so i'm not gonna rate it, and probably will never read it again.

This story was good for when your bored. I liked how NANA was strong and independent but no so much about how flirty she is. YAYA's fashion style was nice.

Yes i agree with some that the main character is a bit well off but the fact that she has a split personality is not only hillarious but quite entertaining and makes up for her stupidity. You will certainly not be bored because every chapter is packed with cool things, mostly funny.

Someone recommended this story to me, but after I finished the firstvolume I just couldn't stand it. Nana is awesome, I admit, but Yaya pisses me off. Weak characters are the worst so that just completely ruined the whole story. I gave up reading any further.

It's good is when Yaya change to Nana. Yaya gets on my nerve too much. How weak can a girl get? Nana is super cool. And the guys expecially the ex-Juliet member guy is really hot.

This definitely inspires me to roam the heart of Harajuku... I love when Yaya transforms!! It's quite amuzing, the one I'll never forget is when she transformed fell off a bridge and landed gracefully on the train to get away from Seri.. [what are the odds of that] and later on the day, she had to go back cause she left her stuff in Harajuku.. lol [you have to read it to understand it]

It was a very good read and I enjoyed it a lot. However...

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Was anyone else disturbed by the male lead's "Oh, she has a major psychological disorder... but let's not tell her!" approach? XD
