In the kingdom of Highland, fairies lived freely until humans betrayed them. Once a fairy has been stripped of a wing, whoever possesses it holds the fairy's life in their hands. Taking advantage of this, humans enslaved fairies, but 15-year-old Ann Halford longs to see the day when fairies and humans are treated as equals.

The aspiring confectioner dreams of becoming a Silver Sugar Master just like her late mother. In order to achieve this lofty goal, Ann sets out for the capital of Lewiston, home to the annual Royal Candy Fair. However, to be bestowed the elusive title, Ann's confection crafted from silver sugar must be recognized with a royal medal at the event.

Ann hires a sharp-tongued warrior fairy, Shall Fen Shall, to be her bodyguard for the perilous journey ahead. After saving him from his cruel fairy trader, she promises to return Shall's wing to him once they reach the capital, much to his confusion. But as the pair travel further along, the time they spend together grows, and they learn more about each other and their true desires.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Sugar Apple Slavery Tale purposefully presents an idiotic female protagonist to absolve her of deplorable actions, primarily: Buying a slave. The plot is an excuse for a romance between an edgy bishounen fairy and the self-insert lead. However, Sugar Apple possesses a lot of self-awareness. The show makes an effort to frame slavery as an evil act, and that our heroine is only doing this because she absolutely must—that she definitely wants to treat him well and free him (eventually). Her artificially good natured personality feels like an act, and her moe character design seems engineered to manipulate your expectations. She’s not a bad person, ...

This honestly feels like quite an up and coming adventure, that I can only see getting more sweet as it goes along. Even if it packs a good number of punches to boot.

Story and characters: 7
Lets put it this way. What if Shield Hero was more light and colourful, then you've got Sugar Fairy. While also still having some heavy elements, and badass moments through out. But what really makes things shine, is the relationship of the characters that is within the show.It's the glue that holds the whole story together. Even ones that are more loud, really add more to the whole atmosphere, so ...

I’m a fan of this so far. A good deal of care went into this, specifically the art and character interactions, and you don’t get to say that often about a J.C. Staff show (though don’t expect a masterpiece).

Story: There’s a lot of franchises they could’ve taken inspiration from (Shield Hero, Spice and Wolf, and Mahoutsukai no Yome, to name a few), but nevertheless I’ve liked the way they’ve fused tropes so far. With so many shows coming out every season, it’s great to still see a traveling fantasy/adventure show try to carve out its own niche. Despite the innocent name, Sugar Apple Fairy ...
