Sugar Sugar Rune Episode 2: Confusing Magic System

Sunday, December 25, 2016
Just saw episode 2 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno and I think the magic system in this show is really very confusing so far.

Seriously. It’s like they’re making it up as they go along or something. Stuff isn’t making sense, but, hopefully, it will improve in the future episodes.

In episode 2, there’s this magic book and we see Vanilla Mieux / Ice and Chocolat Meilleure / Kato having to draw a pentagram to summon their familiars - Blanca, a mouse, and Duke, a frog.

Why do they need familiars anyway? How are these animals supposed to help?

And why were they only properly introduced now when we already saw them in the very first episode?

Plus, how come Vanilla and Chocolat are only summoning them now?

Why didn’t they have these animals before - back when they were in the magical world or even as soon as they got to the human world?

You know what these 2 familiars just reminded me of? The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. It's because the wizards and witches there have familiars too, like owls and frogs.

So, it’s kind of like Blanca is Peter Pettigrew since he’s a rat animagus and he used to be Ron Weasley’s pet before stuff happened (long story, very long story) and Duke is kind of like Trevor, Neville Longbottom’s frog. LOL.

Also, you know how Chocolat and Vanilla have to use a wand to cast spells? Well, Duke can cast spells too, but how come he doesn’t need to use a wand then?

He can just gesture with his hand and stuff happens. It’s like that with Rokcin' Robin too. So, like, what’s up with that? What do you think?
