Description
Hina moves back to her old home town only to find that the high school is run by two opposing factions, and students identify themselves based on the color of their school uniforms: Black for the followers of the ostentatious, violent Nishizaki, and white for the followers of the misanthropic, clean-freak Isshiki. And, as if it wasn't complicated enough, there are the "grays," who wear their own clothing, deciding to be their own people. Hina finds herself stuck between the leaders of the two factions, and it seems to be turning violent.

The ending..   
Rating: 9.8 / 10.0

I love the female lead,happy-go-lucky-strong-dense type. As for Shou,I like how he's cold for something,he was abused etc. The other characters are perfect too. I was enjoying the manga and when it comes to the ending I was like,"That's it? She's not choosing any guy and take off to Franceconfused" That's truly a disappointing ending. gee.. I would give complete 10 if the ending was satisfying.

The part about the snakes...

Really annoyed me.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For some reason, I was getting incredibly irritated with these people who were freaking out over some snakes, when "Snake" would hide snakes everywhere. Honestly, I felt worse for the snakes because all that commotion must have really scared them. Jeez, when Ruu-chan fainted in the bathroom because snakes were thrown on her, I kept waiting for someone to sympathize (maybe even mockingly) with the snakes. But no one said a word. They're living creatures just like anyone else. Throwing water on them in a bathroom might have even been harmful to their health, since snakes are cold blooded and thus require extra heat. The water might have made it difficult for their blood to do it's job. Nobody, not even the mangaka seem to even give one lick of a damn. If "Snake" should be hated for anything, it should be repeated instances of animal abuse >:(

This manga was one of the first mangas that I read when I was getting into the anime/manga world. The storyline caught my interest right from the beginning and it was fun to see the prodigy try to fix the school up since they were split into two.

I'm one of the few who isn't keen on open endings, but this one is one of the exception.

i'm kind of disappointed with penguin brothers. the entire series focused more on making the school straightened up than romance. Although there were bits of information on hina and isshiki, in the end its not romantic at all.... totally disappointed.

Penguin Brothers was among the first shoujo mangas I read, and honestly, it is also one of the most entertaining ones.

Everything in this manga is perfect. Both the main and the minor characters are well depicted, especially my favourite protagonist, Hina, who is luckily not a shy, clumsy girl but a brave one with a strong heart and will. What is more, there is a great balance between the drama, love scenes and funny parts. The storyline is also amazing, plus, I loved the refreshing ending. No matter how many times I put this manga on my reading list, I never get bored with it.

Funnily I read this one quite after Imadoki! and not only the amount of volumes are similar but the setting too. While I love Watase's art I liked the story told and characters presented here much better. Very entertaining. But 5 vols were enough.

Really cute. It actually has a storyline. Might seem like its for 8 year olds, buts its readable for teens too. Not that lovey. But worthwhile for romance fans.

This one is very nice. Great art and great story. Though for those of you hoping for a love story look elsewhere. I actually enjoyed this because of the almost nonexistent romance ^_^

Didn't need romance!

Everyone hates the ending because the romance was left open-ended with nothing resolved. Well, in the end, the manga was really well done and didn't need to focus on romance. I felt it was enough focusing on the character development and learning about Hina's past. It was also a story that teaches you about perseverance and being independent and strong-willed which is very important. It was also very funny and an amusing story that is sure to be a fast but nice read.

I admit that it would be nice to see just who Hina ends up with, but I'm satisfied all the same.
