--> ''That one time when they took me to the theater as a child, I saw, of all things, a beautiful pair of wings on the leading actress. ... It seems that nobody else could see the wings. But if I'm not careful, I get drawn in by the wings, entranced to the point where I don't do anything else. Actually, from the first time I saw them, I had this idea that they were... the mark of a star!''

Yes, [[EverythingsBetterWithPenguins Everything's Better With Penguins]]. But this isn't about that.

* DuelingMovies: An in-universe example occurs when both Peacock and a rival talent agency produce competing movies based on the career of Yoko Oka. Peacock's stars both her son Ryo and Ayaori, who is Peacock's number one talent, Ryo's adopted brother, and the biological son of [[spoiler:the man who caused the car accident that put her into a coma]]; it focuses primarily on the relationship between the character based on Oka and the one based on her real-life husband Hidemitsu. The rival company's movie, meanwhile, banks on having Ayaori's biological cousin in the lead role, and is implied to be a more sensationalist piece focused on the drama that caused [[spoiler:the death of Ayaori's father and]] the end of Oka's career. When both movies are released, Peacock's is the clear winner.


* GenerationXerox: Ryo is the spitting image of his mother, Yoko Oka, and looks nearly identical to her when dressed up as a woman. Yukari notes that his "wings" also look similar to Yoko's as well. To Ryo's chagrin, he ends up both playing the character meant to represent Yoko in a movie based on the story of her career, ''and'' sharing a major role with her for a play.
** Also, it's worth noting that in the movie mentioned above, while Ayaori doesn't play the part based on his biological father, he ''does'' play the part based on President Hidemitsu, who is his adoptive father and was his biological father's best friend. And since Ryo and Ayaori are adoptive siblings, they basically played their parents in the film.

** Arguably though, the biggest determinator of the series is Narazaki, who ''literally'' puts himself through training in the mountains fending for himself. When he becomes enamored with Yukari, he makes continual outrageous attempts to get her to become his manager and/or land a hit on her. By the epilogue, he's on a nearly daily basis asking her to marry him, even though she's been shooting him down for ''over 10 years''. The guy just won't give up!

Yukari literally drools over people that she can see talent in, regardless of gender and ''especially'' when there's more than one in the vicinity, and since Peacock only hires male prospective actors... well.... let's just say that the moment Yukari finds Ryo and Ayaori [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed in the same bed]] she immediately pulls out a camera.
