Japan's Fuji TV announced that voice actress Nana Mizuki is narrating the live-action television series adaptation of Natsumi Aida's Switch Girl!! comedy manga, and Mizuki is also contributing the show's theme song. This is Mizuki's first theme song for a live-action television show.
The story follows a seemingly ultra-cool and stylish girl named Nika Tamiya, but the fashionable persona is all an act that she "switches" on when she is out. At home, she "switches" off and reveals her true jersey-wearing, eyeglasses-wearing self that almost no one at her high school knows. One day, a boy named Arata Kamiyama moves into her apartment complex and discovers both sides of Nika.
Mariya Nishiuchi, model in Seventeen magazine in Japan, stars as Nika, and Ren Kiriyama (Kamen Rider W, Hana Zakari no Kimi-tachi e ~Ikemen Paradise 2011~) plays Arata. The television series will premiere on December 24 on the satellite channel Fuji TV Two. Aida launched the original manga in Margaret in 2006, and Shueisha has sold 5 million copies of the 17 compiled book volumes.
