Peacock, a famous showbiz company, has a ranking system. Boys with star capacity are ranked according to their selling points and are numbered. Ryo Katsuragi belongs to the class of penguins, the lowest class. Yukari can see wings on the back of a person with a star potential. She recognized that their Student Council Vice President has wings but only a pair of small wings. Much to her surprised, she discovered the Vice Presidentís disguise! She is none other than Ryo. Another Peacockís rule is to disguise themselves so no one could discover their real identity. Knowing his secret, Ryo asked Yukari to be his manager. Now, the two of them will do anything to make Ryo Peacockís No.1!
It has been a year since I first started reading this manga. I already liked it after I finished reading the first chapter. The scanlation went on hiatus or sometime and it took almost half a year before someone pick this up and continue scanlating this. Thanks a lot to the scanlators who did a great job in scanlating this manga.
This series is one of those gender-bending shoujo stories wherein the heroine needs to disguise herself due to personal circumstances. The story about show business is nothing new. Therefore, it is not a unique story. What made this original is the way the mangaka presents the story. The fantasy included in the story is really new to me. What I mean is, the use of wings to measure someone elseís star potential is not a bad idea. A balanced dose of comedy and drama is another reason for me to like it. This will certainly make you laugh or even smile. The drama scenes are good enough to bring tears to your eyes or be affected by it. I also love the twists and turns of events. It never failed to surprise me with its every twist and turn.
There is some romance in this but it is not really the main focus of the story. The fangirl in me knew from the start who will like whom. But as Iíve mentioned above, the twist surprised me. Another character realized his feelings first than those whom I have expected to have a romantic feelings to the heroine. On the latter part of the series, it became a mini-reverse harem around our female lead.
Yukari, Ryo, Aya and the other characters are all loveable. There are some who appears to be a villain at first yet when their arc had already finished, they became part of enjoyable cast. My favourite character would be Makoto Ayaori. He is such a bishie.
