It was easy to approach Nadia. It was 1889, and to a young Frenchman, there's nothing stressful about approaching a dark-skinned girl since there'd be no chance of a public relationship. She'd still be considered subhuman. Those honky bastards.

France was kinda tolerant with mixing races, at least compared to murrikans. Alexandre Dumas was a mulato and there was some race mixing on the colonies and people from the colonies living on France. Murrikans were obsessed with preserving the pure race because they were surrounded by indians, negros and Mexicans while Europe didn't give a shit because they were safe.

I don't mind tsunderes (hell, I tolerated Louise from ZnT) but Nadia went beyond that and just crossed into full-cunt territory. She did noticeably mellow out by the end but Jean really does deserve better.

Not that anon but Nadia acted more like an emotionally unstable teen girl rather than waifu material. She was phisically attractive but the point of the character wasn't to give boners to otakus. Back then, Anno took his work very seriously

The fact that she bettered herself as a person made it worth it for me. Yes, it was a rocky road getting there with her acting like an angry, bratty, opinionated bint. But then, that's what you should expect of a teenage girl. Who's been raised in the circus and bonded with the animals far better than she did any of the people.
>>
>>100083274
>>100083390
Anno would pour himself into his work and he'd take it very serious and very personally and that's part of what led to his depression and brought him to make Eva the way he did. I wish we could have that Anno back. Not modern George Lucas Anno.
>>
>>100083274
Yeah, I'd definitely agree with you there.

Eva ruined everyone that worked on it. Here's Sadamoto talking about Karowu.

And to be fair to Anno, he did make Kare Kano somewhat enjoyable when he deviated from the source material.

I agree with everyone that says Nadia was a shit. She spent way too much of the series being a cunt, when the worst thing Jean ever did was be a little dense. Not even harem protag dense, just a little dense. Reasonably dense.

The source material was shit but the mangaka saw herself as some kind of mature artist. Anno was doing it great but the mangaka ruined everything.

For the most part he was just 14-year old virgin dense, and that's understandable and normal. A couple of times he did approach harem protagonist levels of density. Like in the scene >>100083438 there where Nadia tries working in the kitchen to cook for him(she's not very good) and has Grandis cut down a dress to wear to show off to him and then he literally doesn't even look up from his book(that he got from Electra) to notice. And shit, she's even holding a bowl of pureed whitefish there. Shit she wouldn't eat, but will suck it up for him. And he doesn't notice.
Or when he tried to sneak meat into her food on the island, leading to this famous bitching out. While Nadia is overdoing it by the end, she is at least justified in taking him to task for putting meat in her food knowing she doesn't eat it.
>>100084682
Yeah, if she had kept her mouth shut, KareKano could have gone down as something great. But no, she had to protect her "art" and threw a fit that made Anno walk off the project.
