  • When I first saw Alya and Nino interacting in episodes like "Horrificator," I thought it was cute how they acted like brother and sister. I figured the show was trying to shy away from the cliche of the best friend's of the main characters starting to date. But then in "Animan," they started dating/liking each other. Now, I do think they make a cute couple, but it does seem a bit cliche. Anyone else have any thoughts on the subject?

    • I really like Nino and Alya's relationship. Towards the begin of season one, they appeared to argue and disagree with each other a lot (yet it was charming) and after in Animan, subsequent to being trapped in a cage together, they appeared to develop feelings for each other.

      What I'm seeking after is that their relationship creates and we get the opportunity to explore it in season 2. Moreover, I'm hoping after a curve between their relationship. It was confirmed that there will be new ships and new breakups in season 2. I for one think the separation might refer to Nino and Alya's relationship. I'd love to see new limits, surprising occasions and stories between the two to make it really interesting and exciting further on in the series!

    • It would be cool if they double dated with Mari and Adrien.

    • It's hard to have an opinion on something we really know nothing about, isn't it? We never see them interact as a couple. It's not even really official that they are together, exactly. What Nino and Alya actually say is that they found they have a lot in common and that Nino thought he had a crush on Marinette, but something about being in the cage made him realise he wasn't feeling what he thought he was. Because we don't actually have any proof they're together aside from the implication of it, it's possible they really aren't romantic with each other, but have come to enjoy each other's company.

      Like Alya never tells Marinette she can't do something with her because she's got a date with Nino, or Nino never tells Adrien he can't do something because he's going out with Alya that day instead. They're never shown or said to do anything like that together. Nino doesn't get a lot of screen time outside his spotlight episode and bottle episodes featuring the whole class like "Horrificator". Which, speaking of, chronologically is later in the series, after "Animan", so the fact that they act like brother and sister to Tansyflower is a sign they do not really act like a couple. The most you see of a possible reltionship is Nino side-eyeing Alya when they're singing "Smelly Wolf" and the two having an argument where their faces are very close together where, as mentioned in the Gallery for the episode, Nino seems to hope she'll kiss him since he's comically disappointed when Marinette yanks Alya away. But unless you notice those things, yeah, they do not act like a couple. It's a little odd.

      I think the idea is very sweet, but it doesn't seem to actually work in practice. So my guess is they're either going to break up or their relationship will develop so that it's more apparent they're romantically involved, not platonically.

      I hope this doesn't count as commenting on a dead thread since it hasn't been a month yet, but I wanted to add my two cents, since it is an interesting topic we might see more of come Season 2.

    • I think Nino and Alya make an awesome couple and i hope the admins will forgive me for saying these words but i'v always thought that Nino is one lucky s.b. for scoring a mega babe like Alya.

    • I honestly don't care for their relationship. They're too similar and boring to me. I would much rather see them with someone different to them. Take Marinette and Adrien for example - both of them come from different worlds, and they're not really similar in any way except they're both living a double life. Alya and Nino look like they could be related, I would much prefer seeing them with other people.

      It doesn't help we rarely see either of them, especially Nino, whose total screentime is probably equal to Kim's

      As much as I like this pairing, I agree that there hasn't been enough time to develop these characters or their relationship as a romantic couple. That is the downside of putting these two together when their notable interactions come down to fewer moments throughout the series, like "Lady Wifi", "Animan", and briefly in "Horrificator". Even then, most of those are before they started officially dating, and the minor moments indicating they are a couple in Season 2 aren't enough to necessarily get a good grasp on what their romantic relatiosnhip is like, like in "Despair Bear" and "Glaciator". We know their personalities fine enough that I would argue there is enough differences between them, but I wish we were getting more moments between them to really cement their differences, personal interests, and strengths and weaknesses as a couple. I wonder if it would've been better to hold off on making them a couple in a later season instead of bringing them together in "Animan".

      I actually wouldn't mind if Alya and Nino broke up for a while, or even permanently if there were better matches for them out there. We haven't really seen that yet in the series outside of temporary platonic break-ups like with Chloé and Sabrina or one-sided heart breaks like for Kim. To go into spoiler territory, I could see a strange situation where either Alya or Nino falls in love with the other's alter ego while the other still harbors feelings for the civilian form, another love square if you will (why, yes, I do enjoy the multiple hijinks, confusions, and frustrations from these kind of secret identity relationships). However, considering they are "part-time," this doesn't really work if their superhero sides don't get to know each other like Ladybug and Cat Noir have.

      In general, there just needs to be more development for these guys and their relationship. "Sapotis" sounds like a start for Alya, whether or not the episode includes her promotion, and with Nino's relative Chris announced, I bet he'll get an episode he is majorly involved in if Chris gets akumatized. Despite these benefts and more I hope for them as individual characters, I don't know where they could go with them as a couple. Unless they mix something up, like one of them being a secret keeper for a (inevitably short) while, them breaking up from briefly to permanently, or them having their own secret identity love calamity, I can't think of how a plot can bring heightened interest to them as a couple. The best they can do is give an episode where Nino and Alya are major players, maybe even more of the focus than Marinette and Adrien, though I can't see the latter happening. Anyone can ship whoever they want, but it would be nice to see real development between Alya and Nino if they are bound as a couple in the long run, ignoring if any road bumps do show up.

      I agree with you on Mari and Adrien belonging together, but it's been confirmed that Chloe will not end up in a romantic relationship, however her friendship with Sabrina will greatly improve. Kinda sad... since I shipped her with Kim, but also happy because Kim and Alix can be a thing now! I ship them even though there is nothing official but after watching Timebreaker and then that scene in the end of Dark Owl... Hmmm she was hanging out with him and Max.... XD

      Maybe in the future, Chloé will get her own love interest, but I understand the reasoning behind not giving her one for a while even after her redemption starts. Chloé has to learn how to treat all types of people with kindness, not just her father or childhood friend. Maybe someday, but it makes sense if she never does as she becomes nicer, and I think a more interesting story for now would be her improving her friendship with Sabrina and letting go of her obsession with Adrien's love, even if her crush doesn't go away right away.

      Back on-topic, I'm kind of sad that Nino wasn't around to see Rena Rouge. I guess it doesn't matter if neither teen are recurring superheroes as of now, but I would love if Nino or Alya brought up Rena Rouge when with each other at least once to see if there are any reactions.

    • It may be early to give a definitive conclusion to Chloe's future, perhaps Thomas will give a love interest for her in the future because he sounds like just the person who listen to his fan's ideas and suggestions, i do hope she finds someone because she will be heartbroken after finding out that Ladybug is Marinette and Catnoir is Adrien and they are in love with one another, i hope Chloe boyfiend will either be Kim, Nathaniel or Prince Ali!

    • He'll never be good enough for her in my book because it seems like he's just settling for her because of Marinette rejecting him and them literally being thrown together and locked up together, accessibility. I'd like Alya to be with someone who chooses her more openly.

      Her relationship with Marinette reminds me a lot of Tomoyo Daidouji's relationship with Sakura Kinomoto (aside from knowing her secret, which is bound to happen eventually) so I'm kinda in the "Alyarinette" camp and don't need to see her paired off.

      The way I look at it, Alya might just be entertaining Nino to keep him from pestering Marinette so that Marinette can be free to pursue Adrien unmolested. It could be as a kindness to those three while Alya sacrifices her own.

      Despair Bear and Glaciator don't change my mind about that, it just shows how dedicated she is. Eventually though, if it came out she didn't really care about Nino and relayed that to Marinete, she might get lectured for leading him on and how it would be less cruel in the long run to let him down before he got any more serious.

    • Not really, because Nino isn't really a competitor, between him and Adrien it's a no-contest as to who Marinette likes IMO. Perhaps "unpestered" or "unbothered" would be clearer.

      "Uncontested" would be more about removing others who want to compete with Marinettes for Adrien's affection, such as Chloe or Kagami Tsurugi.

      Alya's foxy alter-ego would also apply, but I imagine Alya held back on flirting with Cat Noir for similar reasons, that she perceived chemistry between Bug+Cat and didn't want to interfere with it, even though she didn't know who either was IRL.

      Yes! Exactly, they're just so uninteresting. Alya could have done so much better than the predictable best friends get together just because the main characters are love interests. I quite like the idea of Alya being with someone like Kim, their dynamic could have been really interesting.

    • I think we can all agree that, even if the little moments between them are great, Nino and Alya's relationship needs to get more attention and grow if we're supposed to believe it. Adorable fan comics are fine for me, but we need some actua decent screen time dedicated to these two being together. I don't need another Animan, but something would be nice. 

      Even so, I'm surprised that no one has brought up that scene where Nino decides to stay behind with Alya in Zombizou yet. A zombie movie cliche, yes, but it was easily the sweetest moment in the whole episode. 

        Loading editor
    • Personally I've enjoyed every moment of Alya and Nino being together, in part because they're actually not all that similar. They're opposites of each other the way that Marinette and Adrien are opposites of each other. Is it cliche for the best friends to fall for each other at the same time as the main character do the same? Yes, but it's not the worst cliche. I would actually love for Alya and Nino to end up being relationship mentors to Marinette and Adrien once the love square is cleared up (and it would be amusing to see Rena Rouge and Carapace do the same for Ladybug and Chat Noir, if Alya and Nino recognize each other in Miraculous form).
