Manga/Drama Recommendation: Switch Girl!

HAHAHA!!!! My stomach hurts!!! >:D I'm dying!! I'm just enjoying myself to much while reading manga. I feel so carefree now!

I should probably should get cracking on homework.......nah. :P School is back in motion (new semester!) and my days of watching and reading are gone but not completely. I have managed to read things when I have no homework or when I don't feel like doing it, like now. So enjoy this post!

I just found the Japanese Drama for the manga, Switch Girl and I wanted to try out the manga first because the drama was raw at the time. I'm not sure now but I'll have to check episode one again! Just so you know, I did watch it raw after I read some parts of the manga so I did understand what was happening. The actors are so amazing! It's so funny!!

Summary: 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 lays 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 about 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 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?

I'd say this manga is pretty different. It makes me laugh so much!! The story line is quite romantic. The art gets better along the way. I can see why they made this manga into a drama. The story line downright different, interesting and intriguing. It's really great! The guys are really hot......*dies*

I know this manga has been out for a while and I haven't discovered this manga yet! There are still alot more amazing manga that I haven't read yet so please don't think I'm always going for the manga/animes that are usually common and such.
