Ao is still my favorite character in Yozakura Quartet, but Kotoha is a close second. She's also interesting for a different reason: she effectively is a superhero. Struck by black lightning she has acquired what can only be described as a superpower, which she uses to defend the weak as opportunity arises.

Her Powerspeaker ability is tremendously versatile and potentially extremely dangerous to her enemies, not to mention being very useful in everyday life. Of course, we completely ignore the question of "where is it all coming from?" because that's no fun. Either she's stealing it all from someone, or she's actually creating it; if the former there are sticky ethical issues involved, and if the latter there are even stickier problems with physics.

1 Kotoha is a lot of fun.
And it's a physics issue.  She copies the item by licking it, then uses Power-Word to create a copy of it.  Why she had programmed in a copy of a rail-based cannon is its own question, haha.

Well, that's one of the things she does. But apparently she can create things she's never been near, like a railroad cannon.

(handwave) It's magic. That's really all we can conclude. And magic isn't constrained by the Laws of Physics as we know them. (/handwave)

3 I had to google a lot of images of her, before I figured out that she wasn't a triclops. 
Look, just because she's wearing rimless glasses is no excuse to not draw in the edges of the lenses!
