The issue isn't a non critical part, its the non existent part that has eyebrows raised. We see their grandparents sure, and if the parents had similar roles wouldn't think twice about it. But their complete absence has some people, including myself waiting for the shoe to fall.

I just really don't want it to be Shizuku cause I really don't like the whole first girl on the scene wins by default thing.
My exact point any fan of harem manga knows that it is 99.999999% of the time the first girl on the scene who is the winner. All the other girls are just window dressing. I won't argue the merits of this point except to say that all you have to do is check out any harem manga and see it proven true. In this case like many others the winner seems obvious.

The back story concerning their parents will be discussed in the next chapter(37).
By the way have anyone caught the extra story ?
Pretty amusing, Soyogi's approach towards courtship through mathematical equation based on logic.(Spock would be proud.)

I also like her comments when shes trying on Karin's outfit.
"It's tight aroung the breast and loose around the waist."

It was published in an Bi-annual special magazine Animal Island. (On odd months where there is 5 Friday in a month instead of 4)
It will be included in volume 5 but has nothing to do with progress of the story and the episode is considered a stand alone.

I really wish they would print this in english, i like scans but for my favorites i also like to support the book and it is nice to hold in your hands. Little chance of that though with tokyopop circling the crapper and the economy right with it T_T. I suppose it could get picked up by viz or delrey but i am not gonna hold my breath (ToT)=3

Yeah I like hard copies too. Like Gil Grissom from CSI said "On the screen you have to lean forward I like to lean back"

37 has come out and no back story on the parents to be had. Just an explanation on why Soyogi can't cook.

Wonder what happens if Nagi has to leave the island to take care of something? If the islanders find out who he is, I don't think they're gonna let him leave. Same with the maidens, O_o

My mistake, you people already read about (Soyogi and Shizuku's) parents in chapter 36.
I don't know how it was translated in English but entering Priesthood in Japan is written 出家 meaning leaving one's clan or family (to enter and devote one's self into religion) in which the bond between parent and child is broken at that point therefore relationship with parents beyond that point becomes null and void.
That is one of the reason why I for one do not like the translation 巫女 as Maiden unless it used in the most strickest of sense "Maiden as offering to God" which is exactly what they are.

So in short, they are a god (ceremonial) brides, and entering priesthood resembles wedding with a god? In many religions marriage and priesthood are very simmilar. So "maidens" are maidens (virgins) 'cause there is no way for them, to consummate their marriage with god. And so, 'cause Nagi is a Dragon God, he is a legal (religious law, not human) husband of those 3 girls already. Am I right?

Yup, that very much sums it up.
Remember the basis of the Dragon god/Misaki no Miko belief within this story is an ethnological ritual isolated on an island where the people still holds true to that belief system similar to Tibetian Buddhism believing that each Dali Lama is an reincarnating soul of the original.

One thing I notice that is different is that the madiens are offered as servants in which the dragon god selects one or more as his wife since Nagi's mother once selected as the Misaki no Miko later left the island to marry Nagi's father later to give birth to Nagi. Which I do not understand the dynamics of.

I dont really believe in those kinda mumbo jumbo, but I still support people into doing so, because its actually quite healthy too have something you really believe in.

It's not what you accept or don't accept of other people's religion that really matters you just need to accept that it is their belief.
Although this may be OT but I was watching a TV program about Darwin's theory of evolution and that Angelic Christians still do not accept the theory, makes serious accusation agaisnt people who teaches it and at some schools does not require(prohibits) to teach it.
To a buddhist it doesn't make sense since one of the fundumental teach is that "Every conditioned existence, without exception, is inconstant and in flux, even gods."

Indeed, I do support others people believes and religion... except the Westboro Baptist Church.

I just think that if people dont believe in ghosts or aliens, what are the chances for there too be a god?
