From Asian Girls on Mopeds:

Sakurai Ichiko is a 29-year-old woman whose head contains council members (each with differing personalities) that dictate her every thought and decision. While waiting at the train station one day, she encounters Saotome, a man whom she met and made short conversation with at a drinking party with friends. Although she’s interested in him, being a much a older woman, Ichiko hesitates over whether or not she should approach him, causing a wave of uproar between her intracranial council members.

If anyone knows how this ends please let me know. Saotome is a total dweeb, I hope Ichiko either whips him into shape or kicks him to the kerb. He's hot, but that's about it. When the ex turned up he really disappointed me with his actions. He'd been almost too perfect before then.

I always loved all of Setona-san works, but with Kyuuso wa Cheese, Sojou no Koi and this one, I think that she's one of the best mangakas I've ever read (I love her psychological style spots she put on her mangas)she's so genius, this manga is so funny, 'cause I really think that we all have a council member inside our heads haha.
I totally recommend this one, at the beginning it may look weird, but it's actually pretty good biggrin

I laughted all way long with all the characters. Is a very good manga, not too much about the "love story" (which is unbalanced crazy and lil stalkerish) but how the woman's mind work. Is FUN. smile If you want to look for more romance in the story this isnt the right manga for you. smile 1000 out of 10. smile

I can relate myself with some of the things she did, and I can also relate my female friends and notso-friends with this smile The stalkerish, the insecure, the immature, the bold, this all. In a cute way with those 5 chars of her mind smile
I want to see how this develops further. smile And maybe some more personalities because actually not all girls are like this girl. bigrazz

It's too soon to say if this'll be a great manga or not, but I have a good feeling about it. The one thing that I'm worried about is that the mangaka will focus too much on the panel and not enough on Ichiko. Don't get me wrong; the panel is great, but I also want to be able to connect to the protagonist, and thusfar, I know next to nothing about her.
All in all, a great start. Difficult to say how it'll end.

I'm fascinated by the premise of this manga; I really wish there were more chapters translated. I've only read the three chapters that are currently available, so I have trouble saying if it's any good or not, but it has certainly caught my interest so far.

The whole idea is that there is a woman, Ichiko, who is controlled by various council members, or personalities, in her head. They take votes on what decisions to make, or they speak into a "microphone" which will cause Ichiko to blurt out whatever that particular person says. The council members include both men and women with varying personalities, which tend to confuse Ichiko and make it difficult to make decisions.

Other than the council members, the plot is a bit typical of josei, in that it involves an "older" woman who is interested in a slightly younger male, and is insecure about the age gap and his feelings towards her. However, each of the personalities prove to be interesting, with their own quirks and perspectives, which shed a unique light on the story as a whole.

I'm a bit excited to see how the story progresses; here's to hoping that chapters get translated quickly!

This is such a funny take on the insecure 20's woman who wants a boyfriend before she gets too old. Basically, she has a bunch of "voices" inside her head holding internal debate about how she should interact with this guy and what she should say. The voices are each represented by "council members" with their own personalities.

The guy whom the main character (Ichiko, although her name isn't used much) is chasing after is kind of reticent with an undeveloped personality, though... we spend too much time with the council to get a good sense of him. I thought Ichiko would remain rather flat and timid, but she surprises the readers at the end of the second chapter... and... well... that's all I have to say for now. ^^

There's only been one chapter out but it is very interesting. The lovestory in itself isn't that new but there are a lot of refreshing and new ideas that make it exciting. When I first read the summary (when there weren't any translation yet), I thought it was something about a story of a woman in the politics world with her council members but it was actually the brain council members of a woman in love!! Haha. I totally did not read intracranial. Anyway, I'm excited for more!
