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.

Also contains a oneshot: 3 Days

I really enjoyed it, this sort of heroines are just too cool which makes all the drama seem less hard to take. I liked the art and the story was quite interesting and refreshing to me. In regards to the ending although i have a feeling of whom she might have in her heart it was not very clear and i wish for a sequel...hehe.

a very well made plot and interesting characters. the heroine is great and she isn't your usual girl. i loved the hole thing and i also think that the ending was very well chosen . i couldn't have thought of a better story and i have to say that the mangaka is a genius. the art is realy pretty , especialy if you like 'big eyes" drawings, and it's heart warming and funny at the same time.
it's a great combination of genres (my very favourite) and very well balanced because it doesn't make you bored or anoyed, just keeps you wanting to read.
i don't have any bad words for this great work and so .... it has a perfect 10 from me biggrin

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.

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 unique idea. As the author said herself she wished that the publishers provided her with more space, and i agree with her completely. The story was going at a smooth pace throughout until near the end. The ending seemed to be rushed. And there is NO CLosure at all. *Holds her head in both hands* ahhhhh. very unsatisfied feeling. I really hopefuly..she'll revisit the story somewhere down the road.

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.

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.
