Hi! I know many people've mentioned this before but those fans who hate Nina (almost Azazel's fan) are childish as f*ck (sorry). In the main tag snb I saw one wrote: "Nina apologized without feeling guilty." Of course she does. They clearly show Nina blushed because of being ashamed, right? More important, "SHE CAN'T OPENLY ADMIT HER LOVE" wth? I think she was really serious in this love so she can't tell anyone so they dont have chance to use this love to harm HIM. I need sb to share my emotion
Hello! Don’t worry feel free to share anon :D
I think it’s important to underline how Nina is still a teenager. True, it seems like her being in love isn’t the problem this time, so maybe this won’t sound reasonable, but hear me out, she’s still quite young. I can get why her naive attitude isn’t liked very much, but personally I won’t judge her for it too much, because she’s just a teen and the gang is on their 30s more or less: that’s a huge gap for thinking-wise, you know, younger people tend to be more careless.
She’s surrounded by grown up people, only El is younger than her - and even him has suffered enough to grow up faster than Nina, I’m sure.
Besides, Nina has always lived in a peaceful village, her only problem was to not being able to transform as the other dragonfolk children did. Of course, she had her traumas too (with her dad’s death), but compared to the snb gang, she’s still the cheerful teenager excited to be at the capital.
So, about openly admitting her love, I’ll challenge any teenager out there to go and say out loud how in love they are with their s/o to those who are their parental figure. Because that’s what’s happening with Nina. But I believe there’s more than just that.
Let’s think about the conversation she had with Favaro. It’s obvious they both knew what they were talking about. And why do you think she didn’t said she loved Charioce? I believe she decided to not tell anyone because she cares about them. If she went and said about what happened the night before, I’m not sure if the gang would still accept her.
All Nina wants is just to protect the ones she cares about, which are both them and Chris. This doesn’t mean she’s willing to help one side if that would hurt the other. It isn’t stated anywhere, she wouldn’t be able to do that.
So that’s why she’s keeping it, to succeed in helping both, probably aiming to the coexistence between them. I truly believe she wants to do that.
However, beyond all of that - even if that may not look like it - her development is slow paced, but it’s there. It may be not clearly showed, but by the way she looks deepin thoughts, those silent scenes in which they show us her
face… I think the focus on them was made to show it.
In those frames we can only assume what she’s thinking about, but I guess she’s pondering about what to do. And I also think what Favaro said in episode 18 will help her settle her own intentions too, for the better or the worse.
Now, looking at what may or may not be waiting for us in episode 19, I guess she’d get more resolute. I have faith in my child!
