just wondering, what's up with liliana? Does she get more time in vol 12?
Liliana is the heroine for volume 12. She's the one who ends up kissing Goudou in the end (for instructional magic) while Erica was holding off the other stuff. At first she feels guilty about it - Goudou notices because the instruction magic isn't flowing into him as quickly as it used to be, and he guesses correctly. He then hugs Liliana and orders her to kiss him, as her "king". She hugs him back and complies. I'm not sure what's going on, but as the series goes by it seems that Liliana is taking the lead? She became his personal knight, manages his love affairs (thanks to winning the bet involving Hikari) and seems to have established a greater understanding with Goudou (something to do with them being able to cooperate without words - she acts the moment he looks at her). Well, I could be wrong, though.
Wait, what's all this about a gray grinch and Goudou losing his harem? Did I misread something somewhere? It seems that Godou was taking Liliana out for a date and bought her a teddy bear key chain and she was quoting the same "two birds, same twig" line she said in volume 4.
Then again, I mostly skipped to the ending of volume 12 (to read the Goudou and Liliana scene) so that must be it.
