Manga Review: Penguin Revolution


Title: Penguin Revolution
Author: Tsukuraba Sakura
Release: Monthly
Status: Finished
Genre: Shoujo
Art: A
Originality: A
Story: B
Characters: S
Humor: A
Action: A

Impression: This is about a young girl who ends up joining a model agency as the manager of one of their low level clients as she found out his true identity which was supposed to remain a secret while he’s working there. The young girl has recently been forced out her home because of her father’s most recent failed attempt to strike it rich and because their ever changing lifestyle that hang on her father’s hit and miss business ventures, she wants to grow up into a government worker. Basically it starts off with the two trying to get ahead in the modeling business as they try to keep their school life identities separate from their work identities. It’s got quite an interesting concept and the author manages to pull it off well enough to be interesting. The developments are interesting but the plot development depends way too much on their boss who can be quite an ass just for the sake of being an ass. The characters develop quite well but the ending renders it almost moot as we go into an epilogue years into the future where things have turned out fine but it ends with a new development that could have been interesting to watch. The problem is that there are quite a few ideas that had the potential to be very interesting that didn’t pay off as well as they should have but in spite of that, it’s still a good read.
