Little witch-girls Chocolat and Vanilla are best friends, but only one of them can be Queen of the Magic World. To determine who deserves the title, they must go to the Human World and enter a strange competition. Whoever attracts the most human boys . . . wins!

Here's how it works: When a boy falls for a witch-girl, she utters a few mystic words and the boy's heart will be hers in jewel-like form. It may sound simple, but winning hearts is tricky business. While Chocolat had no problem enticing witch-boys with her forthright personality, human boys seem to be drawn to shy and modest girls like Vanilla. And to make matters worse, Chocolat is finding herself increasingly drawn to the cool and mysterious Pierre-who feels nothing for her! The girls had planned to be best friends forever, but both of them want to be Queen. Will their rivalry ruin their friendship?

One of the rare mangas that actually hit the market in Croatia, Sugar Sugar Rune wasn't really my top choice for reading, although it was one of the few I could actually have in my hands while reading. But one day, by some circumstances, I actually got the first volume of it for free, and decided, 'Hell I could give it a try'. And it really isn't as bad as it may seem to be.

The story itself, while not entirely original, is interesting because you're never exactly sure what might happen next. Sure, with it's setting and genre, it's not exactly hard to see it read more

As one of the first manga I’ve ever read, Sugar Sugar Rune has always been a huge subject of nostalgia for me. However, it’s much more than pure nostalgia that makes me love this manga as much, even after years have passed since I’ve read it for the first time.

The story of Sugar² Rune seems to be very simple. Two witches come to the Human World to find out who is going to become the next queen of the Magic World. To do that, the best friends Vanilla and Chocolat need to collect the hearts of human boys and the one who collects read more

I liked the premise. The day-to-day collecting hearts stories were so adorable. Puppy love in its purest form makes me smile. The love or hearts collected weren't solely romantic either. I thought it was great that they collected friendship and other forms of love. However, I did not care for the shy character turns evil arc at all. I found it unneeded and waited patiently for it to finish. I usually like that trope but just not here.

As far as plot twists go, Sugar Rune kept things interesting. I frantically turned pages when Vanilla and Chocolat's backstories and births were revealed. I still want to read more

One of the things that Moyoco Anno utilizes extremely well is her sublime sense of space. I think this applies to everyone within the Kyoko Okazaki tradition, although I’ve only really seen a few others. Their panels are ridiculously packed with every kind of decoration, tons and tons of side-jokes, and provide non-stop stimulation to the senses while creating this incredible visual tension by transitioning from fragmented frames to large spreads. I bet anybody aiming to get into the industry or make their own work could learn a ton simply by analyzing the frame-structure of those like Anno and George Asakura.

The result of such a read more
