1 Reason To Hate Chocolat In Sugar Sugar Rune Episode 3

Monday, March 13, 2017
Chocolat Meilleure / Kato is the main character in the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno. What's there to hate or dislike about her in episode 3 of the show? What did she do?

Who is Nishitani?

In Sugar Sugar Rune episode 3, we are introduced to Nishitani. He's the head of the newspaper club. When he saw Chocolat, he got a crush on her. His heart even turned orange for her.

He got the idea to interview Kato for the school newspaper. The only reason she agreed was to get his heart.

Interview in the library

The 2 went to the library for the interview. Since Nishitani had a crush on Kato, he was very enthusiastic in getting to know her.

He eagerly asked question after question and patiently waited for her to respond. Basically, he was very focused on her and getting to know her.

Reason to hate Chocolat during the interview?

But what about Chocolat? What was she doing that can make you dislike or hate her? She was actually looking really disinterested and bored during the interview. It was like she just didn't care.

Why was Chocolat so bored and disinterested
during her interview with Nishitani? How could she be so insensitive?

She didn't even bother to elaborate on the answers to any of Nishitani's questions, like when he asked her what her favorite candy was, all she said was the name.

She didn't explain even though Nishitani was confused by her answer (the candy she's talking about can only be found in the Magical World).

Why is Pierre more important to Chocolat?

What's even more annoying about this is how Chocolat paid more attention to Pierre Tempête de Neige who was just passing by.

The weird thing about this (aside from the fact that Pierre really was just passing by) is how Kato is so interested in this guy when they've barely spoken to each other.

How come Chocolat paid more attention to Pierre
than to Nishitani even though the former was just
passing by and didn't even stop to talk to her?

They hardly know anything about each other. Plus, she's an elementary school student (like Nishitani) while Pierre is actually in middle school already.

There's a huge age gap between them, which is made all the more obvious by their height difference. Seriously, it's like Pierre is a giant compared to small, tiny Chocolat Kato.

So, what do you think about this? 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.
