Happy Sugar Life Episode 5: A Grand Battle and Great Turmoil

Oh yes ladies and gentlemen. This is it. One of Satou’s most anticipated battles is upon us. Let’s see how it all went down.

Suu annoyed

Suu annoyed.

We kicked off the episode with Satou noticing something was bothering Shio and not knowing what made her anxious. Luckily for her the kouhai of the hour Suu encouraged her to work extra hard today due to Shoko not being at work on that day. While on the job a customer Suu served most likely messed up and blamed her for it. She openly nagged him but luckily for her Satou “coerced” him into behaving.

Before their shift started Satou noticed someone opened her locker because the culprit did a poor job hiding any trace of the crime. It didn’t take long for her to figure out that it was Suu who immediately confessed…and confess she did…

Put simply Suu didn’t just want to “eat” her she wanted to beeeeee liiiiiike heeeeeeer. For some convenient reason this was yet another situation that reminded Satou of her crazy aunt. My goodness that woman must have been a seriously abused abuser but we’ll see when the time comes. Anyway back to the yuri yandere battle. Let me put it this way…

It was anticlimactic…

…it was delicious.

Satou doesn't forget.jpg

Satou never forgets.

Unfortunately Satou doesn’t forgeet when she’s wronged. She also only told her what she wanted to hear because, you know, she’s already taken and that whole auntie trauma thing. So yes Satou’s the superior yuri yandere. It wasn’t even close, but again, delicious.

Despite it having been an easy win Satou’s Sanity Meter was on critical so she rushed over to her paradise. What she found wasn’t pleasant.

Before that though we joined Shoko who went over to Pretty Danger’s place to deliver his homework.

Before the above scene happened she commented on how much she envied Pretty Danger for having a happy family. He’s most likely spoiled. It would explain why he left his door open.

Shio’s warped mind.

Back to Satou’s. She found Shio having one of her “mom-aches” shall we say. I imagine the domestic abuse made her mom quite paranoid despite having escaped from Hell with her. PTSD perhaps? In any case Shio’s not daijobu, at all.

Satou's sanity at critical.jpg

Satou confused.

Satou wanted to help ease her little beloved’s suffering but when Shio told her that she did talk to someone at the park her lie left Satou in a state of bitter confusion.

Shoko in a calm shock.jpg

Shoko’s calm shock.

Back to Shoko. Obviously what she had seen shocked her but she calmly analyzed the situation before deciding what to do next. She let Pretty Danger speak. He pretty much told her about “his angel” and tried to turn her to the dark(er) side.

Satou had a moment of reflection asking herself whether what she’d been doing all this time was to protect both of them or only fulfilling her selfish desires.

Shoko fighting back.jpg

Shoko fighting back.

Shoko tried exiting stage left but Pretty Danger told her about Satou carrying away Shio and accused her of being the kidnapper. He’s technically right and wrong. Shoko being Satou’s bestie obviously didn’t believe him. His response only made things worse and she was like “Get away from me you sick (sexy) freak!”. Add Shoko’s confusion to the list of obstacles Satou must overcome.

Now then…for the people who most likely went “Really? THAT’S the crime she confessed to Shio about!?” Think about it folks. Every single person (and to some extent Shoko who she’s cool with but little else) she’s run across since that traumatic experience with her crazy aunt, do you think she gives TWO FUCKS about ANY OF THEM!? She said so herself, lying and/or cheating on the one you love most is the biggest crime anyone in love could EVER commit. Confessing to someone else you do not love, no matter what the reason, was worse than sin to Satou. Luckily for her Shio forgave her and confessed that she loved her more than her own family.

The episode ended with a familiar hooded onii-chan running into the confused bestie known as Shoko. Good stuff as usual.

  1. I’ve watched the Kubrick film version of Lolita. And I kind fo want to say that I think Satou is more like Quilty (Peter Sellers) then Humbert. But I’m unsure.

    Suu was suitably creepy. I felt my skin crawl every time she was on screen. Satou decided to use the carrot, rather than the stick (or knife). Poor girl. She never stood a chance.

  5. Satou is so very good at all of this. Seriously. Able to adapt to almost any situation and make it through. (Which she’ll definitely need to get through all her opponents and obstacles.) Even if it causes her to sin. But thankfully, she did make-up with Shio, and heart-warming it was indeed again. Though Shio didn’t quite tell Satou about her “visions” as of yet, so that’ll probably cause something later on.

    And Shoko falls a bit deeper into the rabbit hole that is Satou’s “acquaintances” and has to face off against someone she thought was normal…and survive she does, if thorougly confused by the experience. Here’s hoping she’s okay for at least a while longer, even if she too may break eventually…

    And I wonder how Satou will use Suu now that she has her basically wrapped around her finger? Definitely won’t push the lie any further, but she deny it now that she confessed about it to Shio, or will she let Suu believe what she wants and use her as a pawn instead?

    (And by goodness is this show good. Seriously. It even got one of my friends who doesn’t really watch Yuri or such interested in it solely based on episode 1, enough that he instantly watched all the available episodes.)

      Poor dears have a long road ahead to find their happiness.

      I look forward to more from Suu.

      Hopefully Shoko will remain moderately sane by the end of it all.

      That is the power or Moepocalypse shows.

    This show is going to rip my heart into pieces and then feed it to a wood chipper….

    Not sure how I’ll survive, but I will keep on trying!

    I think the one secret she’s kept is the one secret that she herself still doesn’t know how to feel about. The other things she’s done on-screen for us to see has been nothing she felt was wrong (outside the suu thing, obviously), but that room has always been a sore spot for her.

    Hi, I’m not sure where to ask so I thought I’d do it here. I love yuri and I guess it’s something I’ve been obsessing about for the past few weeks. I played otome, I even read yuri mangas but then I stumbled into really fcked up endings. Like, something that really hits me. Well, you see, I’m quite depressed and I have been for a while. I find myself still reading those yuri manga with tragic sad endings even though I knew it’s going to make my depression worst. Is there any way that any of you would give me a minute of your time and give me suggestions? Yuri anime/manga where they actually end up together. Something funny and at the same time romantic. I hope I make sense. Thank you for your time.

      I can recommend you a lot, but you would need to be able to read JP

      For stuff that’s already been translated though:
      Girlfriends is a must
      Akuma no Riddle is another good one, but it’s going to be tough throughout, just know there is a happy ending awaiting you
      Majo to Houki to Kurobuchi Megane (if you’re okay with onerori (Age gap relationship between a young woman/lady and a loli))

    And another minion added 🙂 A really reliable one. Just a few words and touches here and there and she’s already well-trained. Suu-chan could probably kill someone if Satou told her to. I bet she’s too hungry for some romantic love that she quickly gave in to Satou. I think Satou’s aunt showed her different kinds of love when she’s little, of course not the really good ones. And Satou remembers them when the situation arises. I’ve been thinking, that maybe Satou’s aunt is probably her real mom and she just didn’t want to admit it for reasons we have yet to know.

    Darn it, I wish Satou asked who Shio talked to but I guess the moment didn’t call for that. Being honest and open to each other is a must in a relationship because that’s when you’ll know if your partner will accept you or not. Shio-chan got most of her memories now and realised that Satou’s waaaaaayy better than her family or having a family and loves her even more now. Good for Satou 😀

    I somehow feel bad for Shoko, she’s starting to get involved in those craziness with all those people little by little.

      Not as epic as I had hoped but the outcome more than made up for it.

      I’m sure non-manga readers like me will learn more about the crazy auntie eventually.

      Maybe next time when the opportunity arises once more. Like you said though, the bright side is Shio realizing Satou’s love is better than her demented family’s.

      Poor dear. Hope she’ll remain moderately sane.

    And the crazy continues. Satou uses weapons-grade sexiness to destroy her latest opponent. It’s super effective. Suu may end up trying to get more soon.

    Shoko’s finally gotten a taste of the crazy. I look forward to her decent into madness.

    I wonder when Satou will get a chance to deal with the two remaining threats.

    I have to admit that Suu/Sumire’s obsessive crush with Satou is, well creepy, especially the I want to be like you stuff. While Satou dealt with her with a kiss, hot it may be, it’s probably not the best thing to do, since she is betraying Shio. Still, it’s a good thing that Shio forgave her easily.

    Kind of felt bad for Shoko since she had to deal with Taiyou. Satou needs to deal with him, someday.

    Wow, Sumire hated herself so much that she thought that becoming Satou was the way to go. In less depressing shows, Satou telling her that she’s fine the way she is would’ve been very heart warming, the end result being the start of a budding friendship (or more). Alas, this isn’t such a show. Satou made light work of Sumire’s advances. You could even say that she took her breath away.

    The second-to-last paragraph: Yeah, I was one of those thinking that way but that explanation of yours really makes sense given what we know about Satou.

    Shoko sure had it rough over at Taiyou’s. Even worse, he planted the seeds of doubt about Satou into her mind. Those two falling out would be a sad day, indeed.
