Sugar Apple Fairy Tale‘s first cour premiered on January 6 and ran until March 24. The anime is based on the KADOKAWA-published light novel series written by Miri Mikawa and illustrated by Aki

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the light novels 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…?

The anime is directed by Youhei Suzuki (Kiyo in KyotoMillion Arthur) with Seishi Minakami (Vatican Miracle Examiner) as series composer, Haruko Iizuka (Josee, the Tiger and the FishHorimiya) as character designer, and Hinako Tsubakiyama (Sabikui Bisco co-composer) as music composer. J.C.STAFF is the animation production company.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Yuka Nukui as Ann Halford, Masaaki Mizunaka as Shall Fen Shall, Rie Takahashi as Mythrill Reid Pod, and Tomoaki Maeno as Hugh Mercury.

The Sugar Apple Fairy Tale light novels first ran from 2010 to 2017 with 17 volumes (including two short story anthologies), with a new volume released in December 2022. The books are 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 publishes the newer manga series in English.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
