Sugar Apple Fairy Tale is based on the Kadokawa-published light novels written by Miri Mikawa and illustrated by Aki. The series ran from 2010 to 2017 and is published under the Kadokawa Beans Bunko label. A Hakusensha-published manga adaptation by Aruto Yukimura ran from 2012 to 2014, while a Kadokawa-published manga by Yozora no Udon began in 2021.
Seven Seas Entertainment, which publishes both the light novels and the new manga, describes the plot as:
Anne Halford is a candy crafter determined to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Silver Sugar Master, a title bestowed only by royalty. In order to travel to the capital and realize her dream, she purchases Challe, a handsome but foul-mouthed fairy, as her bodyguard. Anne wishes to befriend her new companion, but in this kingdom where fairies are treated as property, Challe wants nothing to do with humans. Will this journey with Anne change his mind…?
