Do u think the anime will do something more explicitly romantic with NaLu @ the end than Mashima did?
Anything like that probably has to be approved by Mashima. So I would say there’s plenty that Mashima wants to add to the ending since he had to rush it. I wouldn’t want anything too mushy in terms of traditional romance (since that’s not Natsu tbh). I would much prefer scenes like these:
These are the moments I love with nalu. I wouldn’t mind some tender scene’s but not any exuberant proclamations of love.
An added scene of Natsu holding Lucy when he thought she had died when he went demon at the notion of losing her. He forgot about himself and even the guild. He saw no point in living without her, a tender hug wouldn’t go amiss after he wakes up lol.
I just think some of the scenes need more emotional embellishment that Mashima wasn’t able to give us because of time constraints. That goes for many of the events (not just nalu ones).
