Plot Summary: (TAN)
The Season Fairies make the weather, each kind having its own specialty. Only full-fledged fairies have this ability. Sugar is an apprentice Snow Fairy. She and her friends, Salt and Pepper, have had all of the training and now need to find magical “Twinkles”. Unfortunately, none of these fairies know what a Twinkle is. However, they do find a human girl, Saga, who can see them when others can’t. Saga prefers a quiet and orderly life, becomes the rather unwilling helper to these noisy, lively, little fairies.
Sugar as a series played out much like expected from the title alone. Lots of over the top cute moments that will drive some people insane in a good way while for others it would be a bad way. For myself, Sugar was a series that worked out very well since it fell so completely under the harmless category that it proved to be a great English language show for me to watch with my older daughter, allowing her to take in the show more completely. Being able to watch it with her and see parts of it through her eyes and how she found things funny or sad added a whole new level to it.
Sugar was in the end a very cute show that was rich with detail, imagery and imagination. It didn’t strive to be more than what it was, but at the same time it shone for what it was as they did that expertly. While Sugar isn’t for everyone, those who do fall in love with it will have fond thoughts about it for a long time to come and will only reflect on it with a smile.

I bought this awhile ago and finally started watching this tonight.
I’m highly enjoying this so far, but then I have a fondness for super cute things.
