Azazel showing us his feelings and regrets was really good developed...How the authors can go from writing a convincing development for Azazel to those bad scenes for Nina?....It looks like one person wrote the story for Azazel and another different person wrote it for Nina and Charioce. They reunited in a big table "Hey, I got this"..."Me too, lets put it together and create chaos".
I laughed XD
tbh I also kinda pictured it to be in similar vein. the mappa guy saying the scriptwriter’s solely responsible for the romance, and director sato’s lack of concern toward any details to cha/ni’s romance rather suggest it to me.
I think one of snb:vs’s biggest weakness is that, it actually has several scenes that feel great as a standalone, but doesn’t hold up as a series, if that makes sense? like it lacks some coherence to tie up loose ends? idk.
also I agree; despite only supposed to be a supporting character, azazel has the most visible development. lol i’m a bit lost on how to handle this tbh, bcs it’s just… weird, but in a good way? like, he’s the meme character, he’s also the stepping stone character for cha/ni, yet he’s also the most developed character w/ actual bonds and his own tragedy… he’s a full circle, well-rounded character, in a way. (followed by jeanne. i’m still holding my judgment for kaisar and mugaro, while favaro’s a special case since he had done all the growing up in genesis.)
compare this to chari, whom we still know nothing about; why is his past and purpose must be hid??? what shocking truth could he hide anyway to justify all the slaughter??? bleh.
it also rather makes you think, the way nina’s written, could it be that the writer actually hates her??? an anon suggested nina’s probably supposed to be a mary sue or a self insert of the writer herself and her idea of a perfect couple, but the more I watch, the more I’m convinced that the writer must hate her and want her to be hated; except, of course, none in the show actually ever blames nina for anything, so maybe anon is right :’)
