Megumi Hano can't stand the fact of thinking that Nana got the best of her, whether through brains or brawn. So she's out to settle the score and take revenge on her for coming between her and her crush Moriyama. She enlists Yaya in her quest, (not knowing that Yaya IS Nana) by commanding Yaya to break into the principal's office to seek more information on her enemy. She's also such a good pal that she takes advantage of Yaya's aspirations to be a singer by telling her that her father runs a talent agency and can get her started as a pop idol. Just wait till you find out what kind of work she's really signed Yaya up for! Things get worse when old enemies Moe and Seri join up with Hano.
Othello is a entertaining but not very original manga. You're annoyed with Yaya for being so timid about everything and being picked on with no retaliation, but you also cheer "Justice is done!" along with alter-ego Nana when she beats the snot out of the evil-doers that are abusing her. But there hasn't been much character development over these first four volumes. The character of Hano is portrayed with remarkable disgust by the author and makes a really good villain. You can't wait till Nana puts her in her place over and over again. If you're just looking for some light entertainment, this would be a good manga.
