How Do The Magical Wands In Sugar Sugar Rune Work?

Monday, September 26, 2016
The magical world and the magic system in the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno is really quite interesting and fascinating. So it's really too bad that this part of the series wasn't fleshed out more. What's wrong, you ask?

For starters, let's focus on the magical wands that some of the characters of Sugar Sugar Rune have.

These items look flashy and cool, nothing at all like how the wands in the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling looks like (not that there's anything wrong with the appearance of either of these wands).

The problem is with the inconsistencies regarding the Sugar Sugar Rune wands. For instance, how come not everyone uses them? So far, we've only seen Queen Candy, Chocolat Meilleure / Kato and Vanilla Mieux / Ice with wands.

What about all the other magical people like Rockin' Robin? How come they don't have wands? So, what, is everyone else an expert in wandless magic or something?

I mean, in the Harry Potter series, all the witches and wizards get a wand, but a few of them know how to cast silent spells and even spells without the use of wands. They still have wands though, so it's consistent. But what about in Sugar Sugar Rune? How does this magic stuff work in this series?

I talk more about this issue in this post here on Soyuz Mir. I'd have moved this one here on Anime Archives (Anime Meta) too, but it's already got some comments and notes on Tumblr, so I decided to keep it there indefinitely. I'm mentioning it here for reference as the rest of the anime posts on there will eventually be moved here.
