Murder She wrote:

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 slovenly self that almost no one at her high school knows. One day, a transfer student named Arata Kamiyama moves into her apartment complex and discovers both sides of Nika.


So................ His Circumstance was that he found out Her Circumstance............ Is that it? Laughing

What are you trying to say enurtsol? That his and her have certain circumstances?

Hmmm, to be fair, I don't recall Arima being a transfer student.

So it's not 100% copy/pasted, lol

The setup sounds like a certain Kare Kano, but from what I've seen (volume 1... and the covers for the rest of the series) the tone of the series is pretty different. And how many series have recycled "we're stepsiblings but I fell in love with him him!" or "I'm a girl in disguise going to an all boys school" or countless other cliché setups? Shoujo manga is all about making old ideas new and fun :D

This sounds a lot like a J-drama I watched last year called Hotari no Hikari (which was itself based on a josei manga of the same name) which features a career woman and her boss instead of a high school student and her neighbor.

I would like it more if someone got switched with a switch at some point.
