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.

The show is deceptively good, amazing characters, good story, with a good art. But the show is also agonizingly infuriating. I wish I was warned about the blatant misogyny and fantastical racism and objectification, but other that that the show is definitely worth a watch. The relationship between Anne and Challe is beautifully realistically developed and well done. I was really pleased that Anne doesn’t fall into the typical Mary Sue of typical female anime protagonists, she as dreams, aspirations, and isn’t afraid to work for what she wants. Also, never in my life have I watched a show that had so many characters that ...

Mixed Feelings
Voice acting on main characters is good, but the side characters are lacking. Soundtrack is pretty good, but a little much from time to time, scoring could use some work. Pacing is fairly decent. Story is kind of meh, but alright. Character depth is alright, but somewhat lacking, I mean there's a facade of depth, but the anime doesn't really focus on the characters enough to develope it. There are some alright action scenes, not terribly impressive, but adequate. Backgrounds are kind of meh, and there is some ugly cg used, but I like the general art style, overall it was fine. I liked the ...

To say that the ending ruined the whole show is an understatement... This is a show of suffering. It should be called Sugar Apple Fairy Hell

The show sells itself as quite a laid back and feel good anime, but at the end, I feel everything but this. I'm writing the review because it was a bitter ending, not sweet in the slightest, nor warranted.

To start, characters who had committed irreperable deeds had been kept relevant throughout the show. There were constant feelings throughout of revenge and vengeance, but by the very people who were the perpetrators. Even the MC, who had suffered throughout the show, ...
