Why Does Pierre Like Chocolat In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Tuesday, August 22, 2017 No comments:
In episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno, Pierre, the main male character, has a fencing match against Chocolat, the main female character, because the latter wanted to join the fencing club and the former is the captain of said club.

With the way Chocolat is blushing and going all red in the face whenever Pierre is nearby or is in super close proximity to her and with how she gets all flustered in his presence, it’s easy to see that, for one reason or another (his looks, maybe? The guy’s a Gary Stu, isn’t he?), she has a crush on him. But what about Pierre? Does he like Chocolat?

"But if you happen to win [the fencing match], I’ll give you a kiss as a reward."

Pierre Tempête de Neige says the above line to Chocolat and I’m like why is he saying that to her? Does he like her? Why does he like her? What reason would he have to like her?

What is Pierre's exact age?

Also, seriously, how old is Pierre? He’s supposedly in middle school, but the way he’s drawn and presented to the audience makes him look like an adult, like he’s a high school or even college student. He always looks so serious and practically expressionless, and, while it’s perfectly fine for characters to act like that (adds to the mystery and all that), with Pierre, it just comes across as really creepy and disturbing.

Chocolat is younger than Pierre

Why? It’s because the show is making him out to be the main romantic love interest of Chocolat Meilleure / Kato who is like 10 years old. Just look at her. She looks like a baby, a little girl/kid, when compared to super tall Pierre. She barely reaches his shoulders and has to look way up every time they talk.

Why does Pierre want to kiss Chocolat?

Pierre comes across as disturbingly creepy for wanting to kiss someone who is underage and hasn’t even reached puberty yet. For a moment, in one of the later scenes, I thought Pierre and Kato were actually going to kiss on the lips, but, surprisingly, thankfully, it didn’t happen because Chocolat pushed him away.

Is Pierre stalking Chocolat?

In one of the earlier scenes, right after Chocolat gets rid of the Members (Pierre’s crazy and insane fanclub), Pierre shows up. He shows up right away and I’m like what was he even doing there where Kato was cleaning? Is he stalking her now or what?

Why did he try to teach Chocolat to fence? Why did he say that line about kissing her? Does he really want to kiss her or is he just playing around with her? Either way, it’s really disturbing and creepy, isn’t it? What do you think about this?

What's So Disturbing About The PierrexChocolat Romantic Pairing In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Friday, August 11, 2017 No comments:
This post is also known as, "The height and age difference between Chocolat and Pierre."

Episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno really shows you the stark difference between the ages and heights of the main female character and the main male character who are undoubtedly going to end up together (seriously, this ain’t no spoiler with how their pairing is being shoved down our throats practically as early as episode 1).

What’s the height and age difference between Chocolat and Pierre, the main characters? What’s wrong with this difference? What makes this disturbing?

Chocolat is a child

Did you notice that Chocolat Meilleure / Kato is really, and I mean really, young? If you look at her, the way she’s drawn and portrayed, it’s like she hasn’t even reached puberty yet. Her chest is flat and she’s really very short. She’s still in elementary school. She acts childish a lot of the time. In other words, she’s just a kid.

Pierre is an adult (at least when compared to Chocolat)

In contrast, Pierre Tempête de Neige looks so much older. He’s super tall. He’s apparently in middle school, but he looks like he’s around 18 or something or even in his early 20s. He even acts old with that cold, distant persona and exterior. There’s nothing childish about him. He acts very mature. In other words, he’s pretty much a grown-up when compared to Chocolat.

Height difference between Chocolat and Pierre

In episode 6, we get shots of Chocolat and Vanilla Mieux / Ice, her best friend, standing in front of Pierre (this was when the girls are talking to Pierre about joining the fencing club). This close, you can really see the difference between their heights and ages. The 2 girls look so young when compared to the guy. It’s not just the height, though that says a lot too since the 2 barely reach up to Pierre’s shoulders.

Age difference between Pierre and Chocolat

Does anyone know what their exact ages are? Isn’t it kind of odd / strange / weird / disturbing how Sugar Sugar Rune is clearly setting up the Pierre and Chocolat pairing? I mean, isn’t she too young for him? Isn’t he so much older than her?

If they were closer in age and if she wasn’t like a little kid or something, then this wouldn’t be such a big deal. But, as it is, it just seems really rather disturbing how they might will end up together, isn’t it?

Isn't Chocolat too young to fall in love?

I hope Chocolat will be so much older when that actually happens. Because she’s too young right now. Besides, a harmless crush is one thing, but to actually feel love for Pierre already? They hardly know each other. And they’ve barely spoken.

And what about Pierre? Does he like her, a little girl? What’s wrong with him? He’s better off picking from his myriad of fangirls in middle school who are at least older than Kato. So, what do you think about all this?

Why Vanilla Ice Should Have Been The Main Character In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Monday, July 31, 2017 No comments:
This post is also known as, "Reasons why Vanilla is a great friend."

Episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno proves just how much of a great and good friend Vanilla Mieux / Ice is and why anyone would want her to be their best friend. Why is that? How did Ice prove that she’s a true, reliable and devoted friend?

Episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime

In Sugar Sugar Rune episode 6, Chocolat and Vanilla end up agreeing to a fencing match against Pierre so that they could join the fencing club (Pierre’s the captain of said club). This epi really goes out of its way to show us various reasons to like and love Ice and maybe even make you wish that she was the main character instead of her brash best friend.

Why Vanilla is a supportive friend?

Vanilla’s the shy and gentle type, so it’s easy to see that she is NOT into fencing. And yet she still goes with Chocolat Meilleure / Kato to join the fencing club anyway. She is such a supportive friend, readily standing beside Kato when the latter is talking to Pierre about joining the club. She even agrees to team up with her best friend so they have a chance of winning against Pierre Tempête de Neige.

This is nothing short of admirable because, here, we can see Vanilla going out of her comfort zone and doing something she normally wouldn’t do and isn’t even interested in all for the sake of her friend. Blanca, her mouse familiar, tells her to just forfeit, but she refuses, saying, "There’s no way Chocolat-chan could win against Pierre alone.”

How Vanilla proves she's a true best friend to Chocolat?

Chocolat herself reiterates just how much of a good friend Vanilla is by being surprised when, in a later scene, Vanilla says that she’ll head home first since Kato has cleaning duty. "That’s weird. She’s always waited for me,” Chocolat says. She then thinks that maybe her best friend went ahead because somebody wanted to confess their feelings to her and she went to take that person’s heart.

But, as it turns out, the real reason Vanilla went home early was so that she could practice her fencing skills. "You went on home ahead of me so you could practice?” Chocolat says.

Not only is that really sweet of Vanilla to do, it also really says a lot about her character and what kind of person and friend she is. I mean, just consider this entire fencing fiasco. Chocolat Kato is the one who wants to:

  • Learn how to fence
  • Join the fencing club

Vanilla may be helping Kato, but it’s a given that the latter will be the one to get all the hearts since she’s talking about putting on a good show. This is beyond kind of Ice- to help her rival get hearts, to learn fencing just to give them a shot at winning and all without expecting anything in return.

Why Vanilla should have been the main character instead of Chocolat?

And, see here, Vanilla isn’t the one who wants to fence, but she’s the one who’s trying her best and practicing all the time. She even stays up all night to practice. She’s so dedicated, loyal, caring, sweet and kind and she’s just really good and why, oh why, can’t she be the main character instead?

I mean, Chocolat is the one who wants to fence, but she’s not taking things seriously at all. She’s not practicing like Vanilla Ice. She’s just slacking off. If she’d actually made an effort to learn and practice, she’d undoubtedly learn fencing in no time since she’s the brawny type, but, no, she decides to just sleep it all off and relax and have fun while her best friend toils away for her.

Does Chocolat deserve to have Vanilla as a friend?

Since Vanilla is the one who’s practicing all the time and since Chocolat has done nothing but slack off, it’s no wonder that the former is the one to win their practice match. But Kato gets all upset about her loss and runs off.

You know what happens next? Vanilla has to run after her and apologize for winning. What in the world? Vanilla is like Duke (Kato’s familiar) is right, my win was just a fluke, but I wish it wasn’t, so "I wouldn’t be holding you back.”

Oh, Vanilla, you sweet person, you. If anyone’s holding anyone back, it’s definitely not you. You’re the one who’s been practicing all this time. Of course, you deserve to win and it’s not a fluke.

You know what else gets me? The fact that Vanilla is so concerned about holding her best friend back. She doesn’t really care about fencing and has no interest in joining the fencing club, but she wants to help Chocolat win and she doesn’t want to be a burden to her best friend. She knows she’s bad at things like fencing so she really tries her best and it’s all for Kato.

Chocolat should really be grateful for having such a loyal, dedicated and true friend. Someone tell me again why Vanilla isn’t the main character of Sugar Sugar Rune? Seriously, isn’t she awesome? What do you all think about this?
