In the first four seasons of Winx Club, Rainbow promoted the couples a lot more than they do now. Unfortunately, Aisha and Nex got together after that era. They missed out on having their own merchandise and artwork like the other couples have. ?
Here are four things I wish Rainbow would make for Aisha and Nex.
Aisha and Nex have no official stock art of the two of them together. They only have separate images. Granted, she actually has no stock art with any of her love interests. If Rainbow made art of her and Nex, it would help solidify their relationship.
So far, La Leggenda di Eraklyon (The Legend of Eraklyon) is the only Winx storybook that features Aisha and Nex as a couple. But the plot isn’t about them. I want Aisha/Nex-themed storybooks. The other Winx couples have books about them, after all.
3. A Kiss Scene!
I’m still mad about Squonk blocking Aisha and Nex’s kiss in Winx season seven. Seriously, Rainbow? Why can’t you let them have one romantic moment? Worse, you didn’t give them a chance to make up for it later in the season.
This couple needs to kiss at least once in season eight. I’m sad we’ll never see it happen in the original art style, but it is what it is.
I love “La Prova di Nex” (Nex’s Test), but it’s several years old now. I want more Aisha/Nex comics. How about a sequel? Or an adventure that shows Aisha is afraid to lose him? That would definitely tie into her story.
I doubt it’ll happen, though. Nowadays, none of the guys appear in the comics much. February is often the exception, but it tends to be reserved for Bloom and Sky, the so-called “most beautiful couple ever”. ? (To be fair, “La Prova di Nex” was a February comic, so Rainbow doesn’t always focus on The Royal Couple.)
I think Rainbow hasn’t promoted Aisha and Nex much because it would spoil Nabu’s death and the result of the season six love triangle. The same thing happened after Musa and Riven broke up. Rainbow was careful not to mention it, since some countries hadn’t seen season six.
But since season eight has a new art style, I’m hoping Rainbow will treat it — and anything afterwards — like a new series. Maybe they’ll reintroduce the characters (and couples) to us with new stock art and new merchandise. If so, I hope Aisha and Nex will finally be promoted more.
