Synopsis

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'm no expert, but many of the Shoujo Mangas I've read are completely based off of Romance (with some great exceptions) as characters fall quickly for each other. Fortunely Penguin Revolution is not one of those, and is not even very focused upon the romance of the series, instead focusing on the careers of the main characters and the business of entrainment. With this we get to see the romance develop on the side, no "oh he looks good, I think I'm in love!" is here, though the characters are all good looking, the romance is more than that. Unfortunately all you're going to get read more

I'm going to give this manga 10/10 in every category.
Why you ask?
Well first i like light and funny reads and this one really hits the high ranks among all the manga I've read.
Not to mention the perfect art work and the characters personality is just enjoyable.
The story is about people trying to make it big in the entertainment industry.
We follow or main characters as they enter the showbiz world and follow them as they make there way through hardship and success. off course with lots of comedy.
The main character is a girl Yukari Fujimaru who can see wings on those who is to read more

This manga is indeed a revolution. The feelings that were expressed that made you feel like you wanted everyone to be happy, and the little details that made you understand everything. I enjoyed this manga so much, at times I couldn't breathe my heart was beating so quickly! Although the ending wasn't my optimal resolution, the content of this manga makes you forget about it. If you like shoujo, you must read this! Screw that, even if you don't like shoujo read it, because it's amazing.

I read the whole manga. I've also read A LOT of Shoujo mangas. So with the score I gave it, I based it off of what I want in a manga.
The characters were not as likeable as I had hoped. I couldn't relate to them and I just couldn't bring myself to liking them no matter how I looked at them. I didn't care for the characters at all. Even with all that crying and acting I still didn't care. But I read all 35 chapters anyways.

The plot was really around acting and I only read it b/c of that. I'm familiar of mangas like read more
