Sugar Sugar Rune Manga's Full-Color Revival Project Revealed
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of manga creator Moyoco Anno opened a page for a revival project of her Sugar Sugar Rune manga on Sunday. The site encourages users to post on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag "#シュガシュガルーン" (Sugar Sugar Rune). With enough submissions, all five hearts on the page will turn pink, and an official website for the project will open. The project promises a revival of the manga, republishing it in full color, as well as other content.
The website is also showing fans' submissions for the revival project.
North American publisher Udon Entertainment will re-publish the manga, and it describes the story:
In the Magical World, the future queen is chosen by selecting two young witches and sending them to the Human World, where they'll compete to capture the hearts of boys. Whoever has collected the most by the end of the competition is crowned queen. This generation's Queen Candidates are best friends and polar opposites Vanilla Mieux and Chocolat Meilleure, the daughters of the current queen and her former competitor (respectively). They're aided by their assigned mentor and guardian, pop idol witch Rockin' Robin, and their two animal familiars, Blanca the mouse and Duke the frog. But the girls have more to deal with than just competing for hearts at school. There's something weird about the cool, mysterious middle school boy Pierre, who resembles the evil king Glace—and he seems to be after Chocolat. Now, both trapped within their own new goals, the two witches must fight their way and retain a friendship which no magic can defeat.
Anno serialized the manga in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine from 2004 to 2007 and Del Rey previously licensed and released all eight volumes in English. A television anime adaptation premiered in 2005. Udon Entertainment has slated its re-release of the first volume for the second quarter of 2016.
