From CMX:

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.

I agree, it's not very realistic, but I gave it a 10 anyways.

The ending was indeed rushed (so typical of this mangaka(?)) , but I thought the overall story was really good. It was an interesting plot with few, but very likable, characters.
The main reason why I like the story so much is because it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. It's a very fluffy story. It's not too heavy, not tragic, not deep - just very light, simple and cute. Not too many characters which is good.

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.

I really liked the art (really loved the art) and the characters as well as the story. The ending however left me just a bit unsatisfied... So instead of a 9 I give it a 8.7 (like I said; a bit)

Weird ending

I was actually confused at what happened. I did not get it all if it wasn't for reading the comments, I would not know that was the ending. This manga started out really really good and addicting. But starting the last volume, it was rushed and it feels like the author just lost interest. There was a big romantic leap in the last volume for the black hair guy, Makoto to fallls in love with the main girl. But then that did not wrap up. So it is very very disappointing. Especially when there are many scatter hints that the main girl will choose the other guy, Ryo

I enjoyed this manga complete. The art was excellent. The character build up was good. I even like the ending. Even though it does not fully tie off the ends.

The main character was created very well. Not the typical weak shoujo character, but a strong and smart protagonist for a change. The art is also very pleasant. This is a recommendation to those sick of (or just simply dislike) weak female shoujo characters...and those who enjoy manga in general.

The manga is beautiful, funny, almost perfect, except for one thing...the ending. It was so abrupt, (weird, since everything else was stretched out and paced) that it looks like they just one day told her to the end the manga.
I mean, all characters are enjoyable, and you would think that in the end she would wrap up the story, but no...It's just a random "skip"...the ending was cute...but did not end with romance >_<..Other than that= LOVELY

I cried because of the flashbacks, she's such a good and positive girl.
