Does the gag at least get less creepy/annoying? It's so bad that it makes Asta's crush on the nun look tame by comparison. That's possible, although I hope that they won't have Noelle treat Asta like dirt because she likes him and doesn't want to admit it. There is some nice potential for them to develop into a nice friendship at least. They're both opposite extremes. Asta has no magic power, while Noelle has too much, or at least too much to where she can't control it. Plus, Asta was the first one who actually admired her for that uncontrolled strength, so that might lead into a friendship down the road.
