Why It's Wrong For Chocolat To Be Thinking About Pierre In Sugar Sugar Rune Episode 3?

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
In episode 3 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno, Chocolat, the main female character, and Pierre, the main male character, see each other.

Or, to be more precise, Chocolat’s in the library and Pierre happens to pass by. Cue the obligatory flashback scene as Chocolat automatically thinks about Pierre. What’s wrong with this?

(*Warning for possible spoilers for said show)

Chocolat Meilleure / Kato is annoyed by the fact that Pierre passed by her in the library and completely ignored her and didn’t even say hi to her. She’s so bothered by this, but I really don’t see why. Seriously, why is this even an issue?

The 2 of them have barely spoken to each other. They can’t even be considered friends. They’re not in the same class. They’re not classmates. They’re not even the same age. He’s in middle school. She's in elementary school.

And he’s not pursuing her or courting her. So, why should it bother Kato so much that he’s ignoring her? Why should he be obligated to talk to her? Why does Chocolat have to think about Pierre Tempête de Neige?

She says she doesn’t like him, so why is she thinking about him then? Why doesn’t she just ignore him? Why does she suddenly want to take his heart? Where did that even come from? Seriously?

It’s clear that she’s already developing feelings for him, that she already likes him and it’s like where did that even come from? They don’t know each other. Is it because he’s handsome and good-looking? That’s so lame and shallow.

Besides, she’s going on about being irritated by him and supposedly not liking him and yet she wants to take his heart. LOL. The worst part is I can already see where this is going. They’re the main characters. Obviously, they’re going to end up together. Meh.

The problem is, so far, at this point, they’re not yet believable as a couple. Right now, it all just sounds so contrived and unbelievable especially if you take into consideration that they’ve hardly spoken and they don’t know anything about each other.

Pierre hasn’t even expressed any interest in her whatsoever (I’d still like to think that that ‘good morning’ scene wasn’t entirely directed at Chocolat because that’s just lame and reeks of main character favoritism, not to mention it doesn’t make sense because Kato wasn’t the only girl in that scene). So, what about you? What do you think?
