You know the routine. Rainbow posts something about Aisha and Nex (or with them in it). The Winx fandom slams it with gripes about Nabu, how stupid/rude/etc. they think Nex is, and how Roy was supposedly better for Aisha. Wash, rinse, repeat since the end of season six.
A couple weeks ago, Rainbow uploaded twoclips from the Winx season eight Sirenix arc to YouTube. I’d been avoiding the comment sections until a few days ago, when I accidentally saw one of the top comments. Curiosity then got the best of me.
What I saw surprised me. As of the date of this post, in response to the clip from “The Light of Gorgol” (Winx season 8, episode 9), the Aisha/Nex haters have said…nothing. ?
Color me skeptical. Maybe Rainbow just deleted the negative comments, since they’ve allegedly done that before. But if they did, why did they keep the ones on the clip from “Into The Depths of Andros” (Winx season 8, episode 8)?
How about this? The “Gorgol” clip has fewer views (currently 25K vs. 27K). Maybe the haters just refused to watch it.
It’s sad that when Aisha and Nex don’t get bashed by the fandom, it feels more suspicious than exciting. But what if this is legit? What if, for once, the haters really had nothing to say? Is this another sign that the fandom’s opinion of this couple may finally be changing?
By the way, I think “Into The Depths of Andros” will premiere tomorrow on Russia’s Carousel channel. (CORRECTION: Looks like it’s not tomorrow, but it might be sometime this week.) Russia is only the second country to see season eight, but Winx Club is still relatively popular there (hence why it still airs on TV). How will Russian fans react to the Sirenix arc? Will it change any of their minds about Aisha and Nex? We’ll see.
