Sugar Princess is Hisaya Nakajo’s second title to be released by Viz in North America. It originally ran in Japan’s Hana to Yume publication from 2005-2006. A figure skating title would be a welcome addition to the shoujo/sport genre, however Sugar Princess falls short of medaling in several categories.
If there is ever more to this series, I may change my mind, but with so little story and underdeveloped characters, I would only recommend this for fans of skating or Nakajo fans. I personally love the ice skating plot, but Nakajo really needs to spend more time on this series to make it any better.
