This is how Chocolat Meilleure / Kato, the main
character in Sugar Sugar Rune looks like. One of the most 
noticeable things about her is her red hair and green eyes, 
which immediately reminded me of Lily Evans 
from the Harry Potter series
Just saw the first episode of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno.

These are my initial thoughts/impressions about Chocolat Meilleure / Kato, the main female character.

(*Warning for possible spoilers for episode 1 of Sugar Sugar Rune)

One of the first things that anyone will notice about Chocolat is that she has red hair and green eyes. Being familiar with the Harry Potter series of fantasy books by J.K. Rowling, I immediately thought of Lily Evans, Harry’s mother, because she too has red hair and green eyes.

But, then again, I suppose this just goes to show that such a color combination isn’t exactly unusual as there are a number of other characters from other shows/series with that hair and eye color. Anyway, nothing wrong with Chocolat’s looks. Her personality/character, on the other hand…

So far, I’m not sure that I like Chocolat’s character or her personality. Maybe it’s because of how obvious it is that she’s the main character.

I mean, the show is titled Sugar Sugar Rune, but, right away, you can just tell that the protagonist is none other than Chocolat Meilleure. I’m already seeing/noticing the blatant main character favoritism. For instance:

  • She gets the heart-shaped heart-holder while her best friend and rival Vanilla Mieux / Ice gets a diamond-shaped one
  • Even her wand looks and seems more special than Vanilla’s. Just listen to Queen Candy’s speech about their wands and it’s clear that the redhead got the better wand

I also find myself wondering what is it with Kato and wanting to summon the guard dog of hell?

She kept talking about this and even asked Rockin' Robin if he can summon said creature. She even tries to summon it herself though she fails.

What is with her obsession with the guard dog of hell? Is this just meant to be seen as comical?

Is this just for comic relief purposes? Or is there a significance to this? Who knows? So, what do you think about Chocolat so far?
