It's not a light novel quote. It's part of the Q&A pamphlet.

Maybe someone who is more proficient with kanji can tell us what 未那 means.

Her name is actually a reference to Mana-shiki 末那識

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manas-vijnana

Jp - http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%9C%...82%A3%E8%AD%98

In TMverse Araya-shiki is the combine will of humanity, and, in buddhism, Mana-shiki a level of consciousness before it.

Oh... I thought 末那 was supposed to have a special meaning on its own

末那 does have a meaning, but 未那 (the kanji used in her name) does not, since it's a fiction name. (The kanji 末 and the kanji 未 are different)

PS:未 is also used in 未来 (future).

Is it known why Mana wants to defeat her mother (Shiki) to get her father (SHIKI) back?

She wants Mikiya, not SHIKI. She's the same as Azaka.

No, as stated above she refers to Mikiya and SHIKI with different terms. She wants to defeat Shiki to bring back SHIKI.

I know. Mikiya is Papa, she was talking about him.

My bad, was getting those scenes confused. I agree, she just wants Mikiya for herself like Azaka did.

Too bad,we couldn't see future Mikiya. Is this really the end of Kara no Kyoukai? No more sequel?

Unless Nasu writes more, yeah. But he's (supposedly) busy with Mahoutsukai no Yoru and Tsukihime, so it's probably the end for at least 10 years... assuming he doesn't randomly stop those to write more Shiki.

Did Shiki and Kokuto become some sort of yakuza boss or what?

If I recall, the Ryougi family was always part of an underworld syndicate (whether it was yakuza or not, I'm unsure, but it's likely).

Yes and no. They were originally a demon hunting clan, along with the Asagami, Fujou, and Nanaya families.

When they were no longer needed, each family went their separate ways. The Fujou family is officially extinct after Kirie's suicide. The Asagami family is mostly defunct as well, with Fujino's father intentionally dulling her sense of pain to disable her powers so that they wouldn't cause her any trouble.

The Ryougi family became a yakuza clan.

From Murder Speculation (Part 1)'s Q&A pamphlet:
Quote:
Q: Shiki's father seems like a really scary person. What does he do for a living?
Nasu: Naturally, he's Yaku――*cough*, I mean, he manages a diverse portfolio of companies. He occasionally acts as a "consultant" for rival organizations, and has a large number of "freelance employees" on retainer in his home. And he's a bit old-fashioned, so he won't hesitate to resort to violence when the occasion calls for it.
Takeuchi: I see. Basically, you're saying it was a really dangerous thing that Mikiya did.
Nasu: Oh, and he's also a member of the Gourmet Club.

Mikiya was employed by Touko during the main series. When she left, there's no evidence on what Mikiya has been up to since he never makes an appearance in the 10 years later segment with Mana.

Takeuchi: A lot of people asked about this, too. "Did he become a NEET? Did he become a shut-in?" …Seems people don't have a very high opinion of him.
Nasu: He basically has two choices. The first is making the best use of his talents, finding employment at an honest company, and honestly working his way up the corporate ladder. The second is entering one of the accounting personnel starved companies affiliated with the Ryōgi Group, where he would strike out on his own, eventually becoming one of Papa Ryōgi's most trusted Fixers. I'll leave it up to the fans. Which one do you guys think he should do?
Takeuchi: Wait a minute, isn't this an important decision?
