Description
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.

Good read. The characters are all headstrong sweethearts with little growth, which is fine and nice but kinda hard to grow attached to, and wow, bishies everywhere! (On a side note, if there ever was a drama based on this and starred every single Johnny's, I'd totally watch that!)

The plot was good, but not captivating. The storytelling was smooth and fluid in the first third, the rest not so much. Scenes were cut off too quickly, stories lacked smooth transitions, and many things were just left forgotten or undeveloped. The pacing was not very good, uneven and discordant at times.

Well I may sound harsh, but I actually did like this series. It's just that it had so much potential at first, then it did neither meet my initial expectations nor go downhill in such a tragic manner that I could complain about. It was just fine, and it could have been better. But oh well, Penguin Kakumei was still far superior than many other shoujos out there.

It was very nice, but it could do with a tad more suspense, everything happened so perfectly, kinda unrealistic. But that's what make it feel so pleasant.
The characters were well drawn and I really liked that the girl was near perfect. It sucks sometimes when authors go to extremes to get sympathy out of the audience.
I wouldn't have minded seeing a short bit and the girl cousin. And I would have really wanted to see Fujimaru's mother.
But overall I really enjoyed it.

It was very cute and unexpected. It had it's cliche parts to it but I still loved it. The art was gorgeous and I LOVED all the characters! The ending was a bit unfufilling but I do like the open ending. Makes me feel light and a little sad to see it's over. I'd reccomend this.

Overall it was quite pleasant, but it would be even better if the manga was longer. The ending was too cut off and it when it ended, it was like an open ending. Totally not good! But still, totally recommend this. ^o^

Couldve been so much more! The ending honestly did it no justice.. and it 100% seems like the author had to rush through the last few chapters just to finish it. So many things left unexplained Dx! But it was a good read in the least i'd have to say. Buuut ,if your look for a lot of romancey manga, this isnt for you. There's only a little dab of it here & there.

I really enjoyed this series. It's actually one of my favorites. The art is beautiful, in my opinion, and Yukari is cute, strong and smart. And, although there wasn't too much outright romance in it (a fact I really regret, since I would really want to see a relationship!), it did have it, and the story was really enjoyable to read. I liked all the characters, too. The crossdressing didn't seem to fit in perfectly, but it certainly made it more interesting. The ending was a bit abrupt, and you don't really get to see the developments in character that you would normally want, but I still loved the series. It's not as if the mangaka like, randomly killed off a bunch of characters, so it's not as if it was a bad ending. I really just wish for more, though!
So, in conclusion, I really, really, really liked this series. I had to think a bit for the negative, but if it was just the level of my enjoyment while reading the series, I would've given it a 10!

I don't know how to describe the ending. Although it was a conclusion to last volumes arcs and etc, but it didn't feel like ending. I'm not complaining, this manga is good and I would gladly buy it sometime soon, but I do hope there will be a sequel or somthn.
