Nino's personality is too aggressive so she just sucks time since she can't be written properly if she doesn't act like a loud attention seeking cunt constantly.
So long as Nino is in the bowl and snake keeps snekking I don't see Negi being able to properly catch up on Yotsuba and Itsuki's long needed development.
Nino said she would settle things in Kyoto so its quite obvious that the only reason she should have any importance in such an arc where she should have no place is that Negi's planning on eliminating her and Ichika to focus on Itsuki and Yotsuba.
Next arc will likely focus on careers too and Ichika and Nino are the only ones who are sorted in that regard so it makes sense to get them out of the way(although Ichika's character assassination was way too forced).
Miku's popularity will save her from being culled alongside the other 2 but she may be eliminated next volume after her career is decided(provided she's not the bride in which case Yotsuba or Itsuki will be eliminated)
