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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

Good points about this manga: the art is fantastic and the romance that buds between the MC and her guy is really sweet. It was also interesting to see the different facets of Yaya (e.g. cosplayer, wants to be a singer, etc.) that made her seem more three dimensional.

Really annoying aspects of this manga:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
  • Character development: I found it so irksome that every time Yaya is getting bullied she'd have to draw Nana out. While I get that Nana is meant to be her alternate personality, it's so annoying to me how she didn't even bother to fight for what she wanted until the end, and the two instances (at the restaurant and at the studio) where she showed some semblance of a backbone wasn't even to stand up for herself - which is really the problem. Throughout the entirety of the manga, she didn't once learn how to stand up for herself which was the thing that disappointed me the most because I stupidly kept waiting for that. Nana's great at standing up for the both of them, but I thought it would've made a better story if Yaya ever stood up to the bullies even once, to learn how to not get taken advantage of.
  • Steer clear from this manga if you have a problem with evil side characters that have no conscience and are put in the story just to make our MC suffer needlessly. Ugh.
  • Realism: okay, I know, I know. I shouldn't be caught up on it in a manga where there are air battles over contracts and people can get steam-rolled into concrete without consequence but - I just don't understand why Yaya didn't go see a doctor. I mean, if I had gaping holes in my memory aaaaaaaaaalllll the time and was actually concerned about it like Yaya was, I would've gone to see one, or at least sought out some type of external help. I mean, it's not like she couldn't have afforded to go to one since Japan has universal health care for their citizens. GAHHHHH. Perhaps going to a doctor would poke holes in the mangaka's version of split personality disorder (which is not a gripe that I have!)

All in all, good manga but some problems with character development.

This was good for laughs. It had some weak points in the plot and I wish it would have been shorter bcz there is only so much one can do with a split personality but it was fun. I really loved the detail to the eyes.

Extremely cliche that's it's annoying. I actually don't like neither Yaya nor Nana. Nana seems to be too wild to be good and Yaya is too naive and stupid. In fact, no character on this manga stand out and/or likable. The art isn't that great, but it isn't horrible either. It's a mediocre (if not, under average) manga.

I really enjoyed this series. It was a job well done. The art was good, and though the story wasn't deep, it was funny and still entertaining. I don't understand the problems some people had with it, because to me the answers were clear.

Yes it was kinda silly that people didn't see that Yaya and Nana were the same person since it's not like when she changed she put on makeup or anything like that... And the reason why the main guy didn't say anything though he knew of her split personality is because

he knew it would hurt her
And the reason why Yaya is oblivious to Nana is because she's

unconsious when Nana comes out

I loved the characters, but my favorite had to be Nana. She's crazy sexy cool =) What I had a problem with though is why Nana became even more like a man than her cool sexy self as the story went on =/ And I liked Moriyama as well. He was pretty cool. But I think he should've told Moe and Seri off a couple times for Yaya haha

Grr!! I hate mean side characters. Yes, I understand why they're important but they grind my gears. Seri and Moe were just annoying, but Hano was just a downright evil B*TCH. But she got what she deserved so whatever hehehe and what was up with Shuko?! at first I liked her but then ... YUCK!

Anyways, it was a good read. Funny entertaining and I'm satisfied =)
