There's still one ex-Maiden unaccounted for...

Chap53
On page 16, was the mom....smiling or smirking? The hidden eyes gotta mean something she did bow from a distance.

Not a smirk, its the shadow from her nose. A lot of detail missing in the drawing.

Ok here are some spoilers for chapter 54 but I must warn you that you may want to wait for the full translations since it is quite packed with emotional outbreaks that requires full translation of the manuscript to comprehend in full.

Spoiler for Chapter 54 Youku Ganbatta:

Yeah, THAT's a line that's going to make me not want to immediately stop everything and read the spoiler...

I really like the story, the characters and their interactions. Also, it is different in the sense that characters are not indecisive, shy and incapable. However, with all the good things this manga has, there has to be some kind of explanation why Nagi did not ask the responsiblities of being Dragon God and what will happen in the future. I know it may manga less interesting for the time being, but just ignoring the issue is not logical. At least manga should have tried to give some kind of explanation to why Nagi (and the readers) does not know that.

@Tri-ring, thanks for the spoiler. Wow chapter 54 seems to be a emotional chapter. It seems Nagi and Shizuku broke a relationship barrier

well at lest Nagi didn't try to interfere and tried to get Shizuku back together with her mom. He knew that it is probably not as simple as that. when Shizuku mentioned that her mom seemed to have gotten distanced when she became a cape maiden was probably because she wanted her have a normal childhood so she was probably smiling when she saw her knowing she was doing well.

It was a god chapter and all, but I could not help myself to think how can a woman with a child still remain as a maiden?

likely required to stay as one until a certain age. Having a child probably doesn't mean much to a cape maiden. As a cape maiden they're job is to sleep with the dragon god so virginity doesn't seem to be a requirement for the position.

yeah maybe so, but as far as I know about the rituals that women sacrifice themselves for the sake of some deity mostly require women to remain "pure". That is the reason I was suprised.

Anyway, as I mentioned previously, the mystery behind the maidens should have been explained by now.

Well, "maiden" in this manga is more similar to wife than virgin. So I guess its okay that they have children. The other thing is that the maidens have to find the Dragon God before then turn a certain age and after that they just act as a Maiden.. maybe?

And I think the mysteries will be revealed soon enough.

Maiden is not the best work to be used in the translation, should have just been left as Miko.
The term Miko does not translate simply into a single word in a second language, The simplistic translation that could be used, the one with the least words, would be literally "shaman woman".

The term "maiden" is culturally biased, does not mean the same thing in different parts of the world.

been waiting for this

Was hoping that the news you mentioned was that this was getting an anime though.

wonder why there was a quick time skip, maybe saving it for tank release? AYY shows that the author doesn't have a problem drawing it. betting it's more just teasing us right now though and that it didn't actually happen. I REALLY hope that it did though.

Fumitsuki, the author wrote Hentai manga before penning AYA and it's serialized in the same magazine as Futari Ecchi and Yuria 100 shiki, of course he has no problems.
There are little more pages between the last page I've posted and the time skip but it really doesn't reveal much.

As for anime I'd say we may see it in the future since drama CD is a step in the right direction but we'll still need more source material for it to hit the small tube.
