What's So Disturbing About The PierrexChocolat Romantic Pairing In Sugar Sugar Rune?

Friday, August 11, 2017
This post is also known as, "The height and age difference between Chocolat and Pierre."

Episode 6 of the Sugar Sugar Rune anime and manga series by Moyoco Anno really shows you the stark difference between the ages and heights of the main female character and the main male character who are undoubtedly going to end up together (seriously, this ain’t no spoiler with how their pairing is being shoved down our throats practically as early as episode 1).

What’s the height and age difference between Chocolat and Pierre, the main characters? What’s wrong with this difference? What makes this disturbing?

Chocolat is a child

Did you notice that Chocolat Meilleure / Kato is really, and I mean really, young? If you look at her, the way she’s drawn and portrayed, it’s like she hasn’t even reached puberty yet. Her chest is flat and she’s really very short. She’s still in elementary school. She acts childish a lot of the time. In other words, she’s just a kid.

Pierre is an adult (at least when compared to Chocolat)

In contrast, Pierre Tempête de Neige looks so much older. He’s super tall. He’s apparently in middle school, but he looks like he’s around 18 or something or even in his early 20s. He even acts old with that cold, distant persona and exterior. There’s nothing childish about him. He acts very mature. In other words, he’s pretty much a grown-up when compared to Chocolat.

Height difference between Chocolat and Pierre

In episode 6, we get shots of Chocolat and Vanilla Mieux / Ice, her best friend, standing in front of Pierre (this was when the girls are talking to Pierre about joining the fencing club). This close, you can really see the difference between their heights and ages. The 2 girls look so young when compared to the guy. It’s not just the height, though that says a lot too since the 2 barely reach up to Pierre’s shoulders.

Age difference between Pierre and Chocolat

Does anyone know what their exact ages are? Isn’t it kind of odd / strange / weird / disturbing how Sugar Sugar Rune is clearly setting up the Pierre and Chocolat pairing? I mean, isn’t she too young for him? Isn’t he so much older than her?

If they were closer in age and if she wasn’t like a little kid or something, then this wouldn’t be such a big deal. But, as it is, it just seems really rather disturbing how they might will end up together, isn’t it?

Isn't Chocolat too young to fall in love?

I hope Chocolat will be so much older when that actually happens. Because she’s too young right now. Besides, a harmless crush is one thing, but to actually feel love for Pierre already? They hardly know each other. And they’ve barely spoken.

And what about Pierre? Does he like her, a little girl? What’s wrong with him? He’s better off picking from his myriad of fangirls in middle school who are at least older than Kato. So, what do you think about all this?
