Miri Mikawa and Aki’s Sugar Apple Fairy Tale light novels are coming to the screen in a TV anime adaptation, and now it has its sights set on a January 2023 premiere in Japan.
Yohei Suzuki (Planet With) is directing, with Seishi Minakami (A Certain Scientific Railgun) on series composition, Haruko Iizuka (Horimiya) on character designs and Hinako Tsubakiyama (SABIKUI BISCO) on music for the J.C.STAFF production. Lead characters Anne and Challe are being voiced by Yuka Nukui and Masaaki Mizunaka, respectively.
Crunchyroll previously announced plans to simulcast the anime as it airs in Japan, describing the story like so:
In a world where fairies are bought and sold to the highest bidder, humans aren’t exactly on friendly terms with the fae folk. But friendship is exactly what Anne Halford seeks with Challe, her new fairy bodyguard, though he’s not so keen on the idea. As his new master, Anne tasks him with escorting her through a particularly dangerous area, but with a reluctant bodyguard eager to escape a life of servitude, she’ll have to deal with a lot more than she bargained for…
