~ OMO! The gff would laugh so hard if she sees this picture! Erm.. on second thought… she might have seen this already (T_T) BUT ! (^^) oh well it is still very amusing!
Cosplayers doing the main characters from the manga Switch Girl (Kamiyama Arata & Tamiya Nika) I’m actually fond of the name Arata, its the second time I have seen it being used in a manga. The first was with Moe Kare which is a personal favorite of mine.
Focusing back on Switch Girl, the PLOT revolves around Tamiya Nika (17) who is the most popular girl in her high school, always well-groomed and acts all cute and sweet, that is, whenever, she is in her “ON SWITCH MODE”.
Now, what is Nika like in her “OFF SWITCH MODE”?
She acts the complete opposite! (Look at the picture above) Dried squid and dried meat (the smelly kind) are her favorites, she farts really loud around people who knows her off switch mode, repeatedly wears her socks until it smells, she wears her torn “safe day panties” often, doesn’t clean her room, sneezes with snot coming out of her nose, and has a rough personality like a pro-wrestler (she’s actually the scary and boyish type). Her “off switch mode” is her well-kept secret until a transfer student in her highschool, Kamiyama Arata, lived at the same apartment building as her. He unexpectedly found out about Nika’s secret. The twist is, Arata also has an “ON/OFF switch mode”. He pretends to be a geeky student at school, wears glasses and is very unsociable but he is actually a handsome bishounen when he takes off his glasses and girls go crazy over him, which he really hates. The two find themselves making a deal to keep both their secrets between each other unknowingly falling in love in the process.
