    It was a bit obvious, imo. Nakaba refused to fully answer the question when a fan asked him whether Merlin had a thing for Mel, which kind of implied she did.

    The way Nakaba avoided the question back then you could suggest Merlin was Meliodas daughter because what do her knowing him the longest has 2 do with being in love with him.

    Another reason I thought Merlin was Mel & Elizabeth daughter was because Merlin hate her life & I thought the reason was because her birth was the main reason for the Holy War 3000 plus she is immune to commandment & know a bunch of demon things so I thought she was half goddess & half demon.

    I'm pretty sure Merlin was around before Meliodas met Elizabeth, though. And besides, Meliodas would treasure Merlin far more if she were his daughter, I'd say.

    If Merlin was around before Meliodas met Elizabeth why will Merlin follow Meliodas from evil 2 good. Merlin not knowing people commandments also make no sense if she around, one more thing Merlin reaction 2 Fraudrin death is also strange if she saw prime Meliodas with her own eyes.

    Let's say after first Elizabeth death Meliodas stop taking care of Merlin as a father due to his grief does what Merlin say in this extra still make sense because 2 me it seem Merlin is obvious jealous of the attention & love Meliodas gives Elizabeth that she never received.

    Because the demons know Merlin - if she were born just before Elizabeth's death, which should be somewhat near the end of the war, the demons wouldn't have heard about a survivor from Belialuin, and it doesn't mean that because she was around she'd meet the demons or prime Meliodas. Additionally, I don't think a daughter would be jealous of the attention her mother receives, but on the other hand, it makes perfect sense if Merlin is jealous of Meliodas' and Elizabeth's lover relationship.

    Either way, this is not the place to discuss this. In case you want to continue, PM me. :P

    Okay, TL of everything we've got here:
    Merlin: "So, what were you going to do with the money?"
    Mel: "…I was thinking of buying a present for Elizabeth." "Well, I hadn't decided anything yet, and Elizabeth isn't the one to want anything."

    "…I did something bad, naughty."

    "But you give Elizabeth a lot already, don't you?"
    "…that which you never did to me."

    "Are you drunk, Merlin?"
    "Well… you see, when you drink every beverage the store has to offer to the last drop…"

    It reminds me that I posted that I really liked these two as a pairing after reading that side story... :facepalm

    He did something bad huh... Elizabeth was a kid back then, kinda odd how their relationship changes like that. It's always been the case but I have never been more aware of it that today.

    Not he but she. It's Merlin's line as evidenced here (from one of the pages sourced here):
    だって、メリオダスに そう聞いたマーリンが、どこかきまり悪げに こう返すからです。
    However, after asking that to Meliodas, Merlin replied with this, somewhat embarrassed:
    「…………それは悪いことをしたな」
    "…I did something bad, naughty."​
    するとメリオダスは「いいって いいって」と、マーリンを『許してやる』のでした。
    To which Meliodas "forgave" Merlin, saying: "It's okay."

    By the way, here's the page:


    (The forgiving isn't in there, it's the commentator's part.)

    So it was Meliodas she confessed how predictable would've of perfer the Demon King myself. Now the question is which version of Mel did she confess too? If I had to hazard a guess I say the supreme demon one.

    I see. I thought he wanted to buy a present for Elizabeth because he had done something bad to her.

    My suspicion is confirmed:)

    What a chick magnet -- not surprising given his name and reputation.

    Aw man, I was hoping Merlin was the one female character that didn't want to jump Mel's bones.

    Everyone needs love, even Merlin. Maybe Escanor would develop to be a man that could sweep her off her feet.

    I agree it's the most obvious and boring route Nakaba could've gone. Since he's the one Merlin confessed hoping it's the supreme demon. So all the main females characters all loved Meliodas at some point annoying. Not even Luffy has that going for him.

    Merlin has loved someone in the past. It was never stated who that was. But after reading the poll, it must mean it's Meliodas.
    Merlin has to see Escanor. That guy loves her to dead.

    This "But you give Elizabeth a lot already, don't you?"
    "…that which you never did to me." If Diane said that it wouldn't been out of place.
