Why Chocolat, Sugar Sugar Rune's Main Character, Doesn't Need Help?

Tuesday, May 30, 2017
"Tell us what we should do to properly greet our teacher."
- Chocolat Meilleure / Kato

The above quote was said by Chocolat, the main female character, in episode 5 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno. What is wrong or what’s the problem with this quote?

Chocolat Meilleure / Kato addresses the above quote to this talking magical fortune-telling book. Her homeroom teacher, Mochizuki-sensei, will visit her house to talk to Robin, her guardian. When she finds the magical book, she asks it for help by saying the aforementioned quote.

But, seriously, why does Kato need this magical book to tell her what to do? Why is this even an issue? Yes, Rockin’ Robin said he will be a little late in getting back home to talk to the teacher, but so what?

What’s with a few minutes or even an hour of waiting? And how hard is it to greet someone? It’s not like Chocolat is shy or anything. We know how outgoing she is and what kind of personality she has (loud, brash, outspoken, unafraid).

So, what could she have done then if Mochizuki-sensei arrives before Robin? She and Vanilla Mieux / Ice (her best friend who also lives with her) can take her to the living room and sit her down on a chair. Ice can then offer her tea or coffee or whatever beverage they have as well as some food.

They can then explain that Robin will be a bit late. Then they can make small talk with her while they wait for Robin to show up. So, how is it that Chocolat needs some fortune-telling book to tell her that?

In fact, I’d say said magic book just ended up causing trouble for her because she somehow got it into her head that it was a very good idea to have Duke, her familiar, and Blanca, Vanilla’s familiar, pretend to be Robin and entertain their teacher thanks to what the book told her in answer to her query.

If they’d just stayed put in the living room talking to Mochizuki-sensei while waiting for Robin to arrive, none of the pointless and contrived things that happened in this episode would have had to happen.

Also, I have to wonder why Robin has a magical fortune-telling book anyway (since Kato found said book while rummaging around in the cupboards of Robin’s house)?

The guy doesn’t seem to be the type to use one especially since the book was hidden away. Was it a gift to him or something? If so, why’d he keep it then? What do you think about all this?
