High school student Yukari Fujimaru knows a potential star when she sees one…because she sees the special "aura" they give off, in the form of angelic wings. Yukari's fellow student, the beautiful Ryoko Katsuragi, has a small pair of wings herself, and is one of these aspiring talents. She's so talented, in fact, that no one even knows that "she" is actually a boy in disguise. Now, to make her own down-to-earth dream come true, Yukari must help her new friend become a star.

Totally not slice-of-life.
The entire story has weird settings, unfinished stories and unrealistic characters. Its progress is flat - the artificial random dramas thrown in don't change that. It seems to me they just exist to introduce yet another character. They all get a raw deal and done with it, moving to the next one. The reactions to the dramas are unrealistic but pretty cliché. Secrets get presented to the main char likes some dish in a self-service sushi bar. The main pair has hardly a progress in the romance sector. A blush here and a heart beat there and that won't change (so don't start this one with any hopes - no don't!).
Comes like a bad version of Fruits Basket (FB does have the length to actually tell a story with depth).
The CEO of the Peacock firm is very unprofessional, that it's annoying. Even the weirdo CEO from Skip Beat! has more professionalism.
Things feel so randomly thrown at you without further thought whether it actually suits the flow or even make sense. My common sense threw up over this. Esp. about the 10 years timeskip near the end when nothing was solved in the past already *sigh* I was like 'wtf, is this for real' and checked whether I missed some pages - but not, it's for real. But still I wanted to know how it ends. The threesome was still interesting (but the katana guy was the best :3).
Seven volumes are just not enough for the amount of characters and stories. Either lessen the chars and stories or make it proper with depth and more volumes at the end (and some real romance pls).
The first 2 volumes were ok but with the 3rd one I already got bored of it. And since the ending was disappointing too I cannot recommend this piece. Since it has such a high rating, I seem to be one of the minority to dislike this piece - so please ignore my opinion. I don't speak for the masses.
If you have questions (I didn't want to give examples since that would need me to spoiler) feel free to pm me.

Lovely manga.... the ending was a bit rushed but not too severely, and it was done beautifully. Although I think it could have been better if extended a little longer. The ending was a bit rushed and fastforwarded and sloppily concluded in the bonus story. Despite this, the over all story is simply gorgeous and the art--the concepts, it's a MUST read. I loved the heroine and the characters, all with their flaws. There were some lose ends like who the heroine truly ends up with, and who really loves who, but it was just great. PLEASE read--you won't regret it. ♥
i love it!
man i love this series! yeah the art book seriously rawks :D
I didn't like it. I loved it!
Most people have a problem with the ending but I was very satisfied. It was a safe ending. I would like to know more on Yuka-chan's background but the current situation was realistic. However, the overall plot wasn't.
I actually liked the character! She was physically strong and emotionally strong! I like how the plot wasn't directed ONLY around the romance between the protagonist~ Amazing! It was just cute and clean! It also didn't have so much drama that usually comes along, it was just simple and really really adorable!
I loved this manga! it checks all the criteria on my list. The main character (yukari) was a really refreshing character. Being dense as well as strong and really good at akido, i think she is the PERFECT lead. And the male characters, Ryou and Aya, (as well as nazaraki- he's so cute!) were a perfect match for Yukari. Although the ending was rushed, it was the perfect ending, becuz i could'nt figure who she should be with! ryou or aya!! >< So the ending was perfect. But the story could have been longer! It's rare to see good stories like this. Also, the idea of wings and penguins was great! The art was excellent and i could not have asked for better. So far, this is Tsukuba Sakura san's greatest work yet! ^^ looking forward to more of these!
Love it, but the ending....
I really liked the story, it was interesting, funny, cute, and could get dramatic. The characters were all well done and the female lead was quite unique. But that ending! It felts so rushed and was very unsatisfying =_=
This manga is great in many senses, it has beautiful art and a lovely story but as many people have said before... it ends up nowhere. When an author (mangaka in this case) shows you that there are several characters who have feelings for the main character you usually expect that in the end this will be resolved by the main character choosing who s/he wants to stay with. But that doesn't happen. So you get the feeling that the manga is... incomplete... which is something rather annoying. I don't know... I prefer stories properly wrapped up at the end... but maybe that's just me.
The other comments were right
This manga was super cute and made me happy to read. I agree with the other comments that said the ending wasn't satisfactory, and the manga as a whole wasn't flawless, but I'm glad I read it.
It was alright, but..
I expected much of this and was really disappointed with the end.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
You see that Ryou and Aya fall in love with Fujimaru but she never actually stays with any of them nor does any of them confess to her NOR DOES SHE. It's really frustrating when stories end like this.
'Sides that, the manga isn't so bad at all, it has its ups and down, of course. But if you're looking for great romance developing you've got the wrong manga indeed. I'm as disappointed as in ''Penguin Brothers''...Silly penguins.
