Why Does Chocolat Have A Crush On Pierre In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Thursday, July 20, 2017 No comments:
In episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno, we see several scenes where 2 of the main characters interact. Does Chocolat, the main female character, have a crush on Pierre, the main male character? Why? What reason does she have to like/love/have a crush on him?

Why Pierre is a Gary Stu?

As soon as Chocolat sees Pierre Tempête de Neige in episode 6, we get several shots of the guy looking all handsome and stuff with his poses, sword-slashing skills, etc. I’m guessing we’re supposed to be all impressed and stuff.

But all I can really think of is ‘Gary Stu’ especially when Kato is like, oh yeah, Pierre is the captain of the fencing club. And then I recall everything else that is so perfect about the guy and how everyone fawns over him. Can he get any more Gary Stu or what? *Sigh*

Why does Chocolat want Pierre's heart?

Soon after the Pierre fanservice, Chocolat Meilleure / Kato is like, oh yeah, I was supposed to take his heart, and, yeah, that was mentioned in previous epis, but I’m still really confused about that. I mean, why is she even interested in his heart?

Why does she want it so much? What I’m seeing right now is that she appears to have a crush on him. She’s so starstruck by his good looks and how he’s swinging that sword around, etc.

Pierre makes Chocolat blush

We even see her blushing in several scenes like when Pierre shows up after the Members (Pierre’s fanclub. See that, the Gary Stu even has a fanclub and they’re all made up of girls who are scarily, creepily obsessed with him to the point that they’d go beat up a little girl, an elementary school student, just because she happens to have a fencing match with their prince charming. Sheesh.) stop harassing Chocolat.

Does Chocolat like Pierre only because he's handsome?

Pierre touches her hand and tries to teach her how to fence and she’s all red in the face and attempting to push him away. Her heart even turns orange for him. So, okay, fine, we get it, she has a crush on the guy.

But why? Just because of his good looks? I mean, liking someone for their appearance is fine and all, but shouldn’t she have other reasons as to why she’d fall in love with this guy?

Will the Sugar Sugar Rune anime make this romance between Pierre and Chocolat believable?

So far, Pierre hasn’t really done anything that would make her fall for him. In fact, he’s been cold and distant towards her. I certainly hope that, as the show progresses, it will show us how Chocolat and Pierre will fall in love and end up together.

Because, yeah, I can already see the outcome of this. Of course, those 2 are going to end up together. Their pairing is already being shoved down our throats and we’re only on episode 6. Jeez. LOL. What do you think about this?

How Does Love Work In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Sunday, July 09, 2017 No comments:
In episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno, we find out more about the code of the Magical World. But everything is still really confusing. Exactly how does love work in this show? What’s so confusing about all this?

The code of the Magical World states that:

“The heart is yours to take. But you must not allow your own to be taken.”

Sugar Sugar Rune episode 6 seems to imply that this code refers particularly to humans, meaning that magical people are apparently not allowed to fall in love with humans. But why not? What’s wrong with magical people and humans falling in love?

I mean, humans don’t have magic, so they can’t get hearts in the way that Chocolat Meilleure / Kato and Vanilla Mieux / Ice, the main characters, and all the other magical people can get the hearts of humans. So, how can the hearts of the magical people be taken then?

And what’s wrong with having their hearts taken? From what we’ve seen so far with the humans, nothing bad happens to them even when their hearts are taken. They just lose the feelings that came with their hearts. But it seems that magical people can keep inducing those feelings on the same person over and over again. Is that right or what?

So, with all that said, exactly what happens when a magical person falls in love with a human and why is that so bad? Why is that so bad that it’s not allowed and that it’s apparently a crime with a hefty punishment? What do you think?

Sugar Sugar Rune: Is Chocolat A True Friend To Vanilla?

Thursday, June 29, 2017 No comments:
What happens in episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno that can make you question whether Chocolat, the main female character, is a true friend to Vanilla, her supposed best friend?

In this episode of Sugar Sugar Rune, Chocolat agrees to have a fencing match with Pierre Tempête de Neige, the captain of the fencing club. If she wins against him, she’ll be allowed to join the fencing club.

Vanilla will also be fighting alongside Chocolat since they are at a disadvantage what with Pierre being more knowledgeable and skilled than they are.

There are a number of scenes in this epi that kind of pissed me off, particularly with regards to Chocolat Meilleure / Kato and how she treats her supposed best friend. Why?

Okay, first of all, Vanilla Mieux / Ice shows exactly what kind of friend she is by doing her best to practice learning how to fence. She isn’t interested in fencing and she’s only really doing this for Kato.

And yet she’s so dedicated to learning that she spends the whole night practicing, so much so that the next day, she is tired and sleepy and doesn’t have much of an appetite.

Kato doesn’t know what Ice was up to. She doesn’t know about her practicing all night long for her sake. But they’re supposed to be best friends so that shouldn’t matter at all.

So, when she sees Vanilla Mieux looking tired and sleepy and not having much of an appetite, shouldn’t she at least display some concern? As friends, she should ask if Ice is okay, if she’s feeling well, if something is bothering her, etc.

But none of that happens. What do we get instead? We get Chocolat being completely callous and cold and uncaring and unconcerned. She says, “Can I have your strawberry mousse?” when she sees the food on Vanilla’s plate.

What in the world? Talk about being a horrible friend. They’re supposed to be best friends, so where’s all the concern? Instead, we see Kato thinking with her stomach. Sheesh, right?

Thankfully, Kato redeems herself slightly when she tries to cheer up Vanilla (it’s about time, Chocolat) when the latter is near-tears after practicing so much and yet she finds that she still can’t hit her fencing target.

When Chocolat sees this, she finally shows some concern and asks Ice if she hurt herself. She tells Vanilla not to be so hard on herself and then even says that they should practice together.

Well, it’s good to know that Chocolat Kato isn’t that cruel. It would be nice if she was more attentive to Vanilla though, if she showed more care.

I mean, you have Vanilla who’s completely out of her comfort zone with fencing and who struggles to learn how to fence and who’d rather be doing anything else but fencing and yet she still does it anyway and it’s all for Chocolat’s sake. If that’s not friendship, then I don’t know what is. What do you think about all this?
