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 lies 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 out 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 own 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?

Probably one of the few shoujo manga that really made me laugh. Nika is hilarious and Arata is gorgeous... I was starting to get a little bored in the later chapters (mainly about the sneaking into the school thing), but after reading chapter 55... I fell in love with this manga again. ^_^ It's a chapter to look forward to... (so sweet!).

This manga is so like me that it's no joke. I stumbled on it randomly and my jaws dropped in how much the main character and I are alike. I have an On/Off thing going on too. After all, it's a necessity to survive in society.

But moving along.. Fantastic manga. Although I've only read 3 chapters, it shows promise and the guy is very good looking with a twisted personality. But who doesn't hate bad boys?

I've only gotten to chapter 2 so far. But I am disappointed in how this seems to be going. I am also not crazy for the drawing. I was hoping to be laughing my head off, and there was no laughing coming from me at all. Hopefully it will get better.

This is a pretty good series. It seems like another kareshi no kanojo manga but i really like how the author avoided some of the "typical" shoujo plots. Some parts of the story is boring but some parts were ok. The beginning is particularly interesting.

hmm, I'll start reading it, but from the summary, doesn't it sound a bit like another "I'm perfect at school because I like attention, but a slob at home" manga we all know and love (or hate, whichever the case may be)?

And can't tell yet how its gonna be. I mean some parts are funny, but I never had a LOL moment or anything (except for the fart, since I wasn't expecting it), and most of the humor didn't reach me. For a large part, I was confused... but I'll blame that on the pages being out of order.
