A young female art-school student finds that a twin actors/models, one of whom is a student of the same school and has recently become her friend, trade their role everyday and behave one person. She makes a bet to see if she can tell the two apart after living at their apartment for two weeks.

If she can, they will tell the truth. If she can’t, she will have to stop asking the reason.

After the two weeks, she becomes being able to tell the two apart but she decides not to tell that until they tell the truth. She later starts dating with younger brother of the twin and older brother starts dating with another young woman until a serious incident happens and that makes the twin living far each other phisically and emotionally.

The story takes place in firstly New York and secondaly Los Angeles. I enjoyed seeing their drama and their lives in N.Y. and LA, even though the manga artist is Japanese.
