I suspected that Jin's father has something got to do with Nagi. Perhaps he is the one that Nagi the Goddess fell in love with.

Just a speculation.

i usually avoid supernatural premised stories because of the inane spiritualism and deux ex machina "plot", but for some reason the manga has been pretty tolerable on that front. it has a mix of ambiguity and some hint at thematic variety, or perhaps im just burning through it looking for any zange appearance.

Well the manga story seems to emphasis multiple personalities in one body a lot. Hence it is an interesting story since you do not know what is coming up next in narrative when the principal players involved.

On Zenge side, things are quite clear - Zenge is the goddess control Hakua's body while Hakua herself is more than willing to let Zenge do. Just Nagi's case is a total mess.

Must say I agree with you. Nagi is kind of your average heroine in such manga - play great but actually has no idea who herself is, relying on a human boy whom is found random (at least it seems random at beginning, but they can always become the Mr. deux ex machina).

Zenge is a different story. She looks the evil-at-beginning-but-will-turn-good-later-and-become-a-member-in-a-hopeless-harem type girl, but she indeed not. Zenge flirts, but just for fun, she doesn't fall for the human boy. She may seem stupid and embrassed sometime, but she is independent and capable to deal with things alone. I call this a better form for down to earth goddess.

i've never had the impression that zange is evil. it's just a moe trait.

Well, Jin can see spirits, and he has unusually good reflexes. Who knows? He may end up turning into someone interesting, but I'm honestly not expecting that.

Well, not really evil, but she can be quite a bitch at times. Like when she tied Nagi up, and said she'd strip her clothes off, so that when the boys enter that room they'd find her naked.

It is not like I said he is normal. I said he is picked randomly. He can be a boy can see spirit, or even Mr. deux ex machina who can make any impossible possible. The point is that Nagi sticks with Jin simply because he is the first person she meets (like how heroine meets hero in many manga), not because she knows who he is or what he is.

I'll laugh my ass off if the story ends up that Jin's support is more efficient than the power she can gain from the idol business.

Gods and goddess are too human these days.

Weren't they always like that? I mean ancient greek gods were pretty much humans with powers and with weaknesses.
