EDITED with commentary

This is that one comic that I really wanted to fix for a while because this is a foreshadowing extra comic to Nina's backstory, which unfortunately will not be drawn out in detail until towards the end of the Iccirus City arc.

I have recently been made aware (although technically this has been an issue for a few months but I haven't had the time to address it or fix it) that this comic has been the source of contention because Nina initially came off as being complaining about "oh poor me I'm so talented and good at everything" which was NOT the intention at all.

The main point of this comic was to show that the main reason for Nina's apprehension about her mother was due to the fact that she has many expectations thrown on her and as a result of this "pedestal treatment" she does get hurt (the details of this hurt I kept vague because that is going to be addressed). But the original version of this comic did make it seem like it so I had to edit out the details and text in the hopes that it doesn't come off that way. Yes, she does have talents that were inherited and it does make her a subject of jealousy (i.e. Extra Comic 17). But she isn't wangsting about that.

Also if you were wondering why that blue-haired woman is a champion, please read this: LINK

Kynim is the mom. Thats why this is sort of a sequal.

Actually, I can relate.

Just on a slightly smaller scale. The parents thing though is still there.

Wow...This clears a LOT of things up.
I feel sorry for Nina. She wants to be treated like her own person, like she's any other Trainer, without having all the pressure.

Poor Nina... It must be very hard for her to be constantly expected to be like a champion...

To some degree, I can relate to this.
(But I have to admit, Nina has it worse than I do.)

Due to the line "Will there be a time when I don't have to hide away all my negative thoughts? Because even if I want to now... I don't know if I can anymore," it kinda seems like Nina would be partnered with Reshiram, because of her wanting to show people the truth of how tough she has it. But I guess not; even though she strives to be stronger, I think N thinks the same way, though he has his conflicted truthy moments as well.

I love the art style of the last panel. And I KNEW IT! I guess it was kinda obvious but I just knew that Kynim was Nina's mother ever since Roark gave her the necklace! Yay! (Why's Nina rejecting Kynim?) :(

Great work!

Do you know that Nina's name means dream?
Did u do that on purpose or is that a coincidence?
Because either way it's awesome
