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.

I have arrived in defense of one of my favorite releases of the season. Sugar Apple Fairy Tale is dramatic, angsty, beautiful and SO shoujo.

As someone who is a massive shoujo consumer, be it in manga or anime form, I can with confidence say that it has been a while since we got a shoujo adaptation that had a big budget and where the studio didn't seem to give up on it halfway through the season. This is a massive plus in my book because shoujo deserves GOOD adaptations as much the shounen and seinen demographic (don't even get me started on josei because we ...

Sigh, would someone help me remember why Shoujo shows that were once the rage in the past, now fall into obscurity?

In the never-ending world of fantasy, there are distinct personalities and features that help make it stand out. But it's often a taboo to have inequality in the world, such as masters and slaves, tradition vs. modern, and gender equality. Such is the case with novelist Miri Mikawa's completed 17-volume LN that is Sugar Apple Fairy Tale from 2010 to 2015, it sure took over a decade to finally have an anime adaptation, courtesy of J.C.Staff. But with every Shoujo-esque work that's clearly targeted ...

This anime has, BY FAR, one of the worst endings I have ever come across in an anime. It is so utterly disgusting and stupid and annoying that it completely rewrites my opinion of the anime as a whole.

They should’ve just ended it with the duke’s confection and called it a day or just completely redid the ending. Now I’m not one for this type of anime but I actually would rate it at an 8 or maybe even 9 up until the last like 15 seconds of the anime.

You could totally see it coming but up until those last 15 seconds you ...
