Tonan no Tsubasa
Tonan (図南) refers to the southern flight of the phoenix (鵬), with the same nuance as "Go west, young man." Hence, the expression "The wings (tsubasa) of the phoenix" came to mean setting off with big plans in mind, or "great expectations." But that title's already taken. A literal translation yields something like "Aspired Wings," but that's a bit clunky, so I settled on "The Wings of Dreams."
