    “Chieri herself has become less arrogant and more friendly towards the kenkyuusei, which may have been a positive side-effect from being around Nagisa.”

    Well, she never was arrogant really. Aloof and stoic, and even cold sometimes, definitely, but she never bragged about her skills and talents or anything like that. In fact, the way she behaved when she was told she would be Yuuko’s under showed she’s actually a pretty humble person.

    But you’re right that she became more friendly with the others, although I think it has more to do with Kanata than Nagisa. That heart to heart about Chieri’s family really helped to lift some weight from her shoulders.

    I do think kirara doesn’t glow for Nagisa alone but for the both of them when they’re together. Micchan says so herself too: “these two have quite the glow, don’t they”

    On the other hand I’m a little worried about Tsubasa. I got the feeling that for the purpose of finding out what happened to Acchan, she would be willing to use/sacrifice Chieri and Nagisa. I hope I’m wrong but…

      Chieri described herself as arrogant while on the bridge – she was referring to that scene back when she first met Nagisa, and said: “I’m going to be hard to beat”. But definitely, she’s gone through a lot of development and is now a much nicer person :)

      Yeah now that you mention it, Tsubasa’s willing to go to huge lengths to find out about Acchan – even throwing away her idol dream and becoming AKB staff. If she brings back the center position and makes Chieri and Nagisa a double center (like the OP hints) she could very well just be using them for her own purposes…
