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 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.

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.

Wow, this manga was truly unique. I've never read anything like it! I liked the art, the characters and the plot! The reason why i give it a 9 is because of the ending. The ending wasn't HORRIBLE but it indeed seemed rushed and unsolved. Although the romance between the 2 characters was quite obvious, there wasn't a HUGE development. The mangaka should have made it at least 1 volume longer to really finish and solve everything. Other than that, every volume literally captivated my full attention towards the story! I couldn't help but want more and got sad when it was almost over!
Highly recommended smile

Went downhill from middle onwards, author pretty much skipped months and years of the manga to fastforward it to the ending which was pretty bad as it did not really conclude anything at all nor did it leave a lasting or good impression. The male lead of the story didn't receive that much special attention or stand out at the end.

Where's the romantic development?! noooooooooooooooo

But otherwise, everything came together in the end quite nicely...
Character development is also quite nice, its a shame that it ended so abruptly

I totally adored this manga - the concept was unique, the artwork beautiful, and all the characters were realistic and interesting.

I am very annoyed at the inconclusive ending, though. I agree with beckecks - it feels very rushed, and makes me wonder if the series was canceled or something. I felt like this could have easily gone on for at least another ten or fifteen chapters, maybe even more. Thirty-three (or whatever the number was) simply wasn't enough.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I mean, did Ayaori love Yukari or not? And what about Ryou? I mean, he //just// figured out his feelings - did he ever confess? And what about Yukari's feelings, for both of them? I mean really, there was no romantic conclusion T_T.

But other than the abruptness of the ending, I really enjoyed this manga. And, other than the romantic aspect, the mangaka did a nice job of very quickly tying up all the loose ends. I'd recommend this manga, and I'll be watching, just in case the mangaka decides to make a sequel or something (doubtful, but possible.)

I want to know - was the series canceled prematurely or something?
The ending was so sudden, and I feel like the characters and the story weren't developed to the point the author wanted to take them.

Despite the abrupt and rushed ending, I truly enjoyed this series. There's always a million and one things that irk me about shoujo manga, but I loved the heroine and all of the other characters.

Tsukuba-sensei is one of my favorite mangakas, and would have an even higher ranking if she were more prolific, but I think this is my favorite of her various works! A bright, cheerful heroine who always provides emotional support at just the right moment, and is quite capable of kicking physical butt as well, is an automatic favorite for me! The beautiful art and adorable side characters--whether they know Fujimaru's sex or not--are like icing on this delicious cake. Besides that, it's completely understandable when said side characters find her just as lovable as we do! (I do not, in this, count Ryo as a side character. Of course he finds her lovable. biggrin )

Honestly, I don't like this author. I somehow have seen other manga by this author. Hm.. can't remember which one. But, I hate the character. Yeah, hate me! I just happened to bump into this manga actually by other people recommendations. I doesn't caught my eyes at first, with the title "Penguin" ??? and the cover book. Soo lame.

( Ok, hate me 2 )

Then, I try to ignore my stupid spirit and download this manga. OH MY GOAT. The main hero character(s) are.. soooo good looking and eye candy O_O
( I have feeling to those character with droopy eyes and nice face ) xD

I love the story line. The plot. Even the heroine! She not some kind of clingy heroine but independent, - looks naive and have material art defense. The story just focus to this hero and heroine but other character played their part very well :D
I don't know the black hair dude, is he hero or side character? But, his personality is interesting ^^. Not to mention about Ryou's personality too :D

I highly recommend because this is so light-hearted manga, with nice sweet romance and not your typical shoujo. (Just, slightly ) :D

I want WINGS too T_T

By the way, I think the heroine might end up with Ayaori-Makoto kun because if she's with Ryou, they seems a couple of plenty of delight. On the other hand, Makoto-kun seems nice, quiet, and don't talk much. Eventually, Yukari and Ayaori seems to bump into each other in embarassing moment ^^. Oh, well, I don't care actually who she might end up because I love both character >.<;; Not to mention about Narazaki Yuzuru that have loveable personality :D

EDIT : But, I dislike the slow storyline actually. I realised Ryou feeling towards Yukari and I do realised Aya's feeling about Yukari too. But, I think, Ryou doesn't know his own feeling and ignored it meanwhile Aya is more honest. Hey Yukari, I don't get it. Which one do you like? D:
Please, I want MORE romance in this potential manga T_T
