* Okay, let me get a few things straight. [[spoiler:Jin is Hakumen.]] Hakumen is one of the Six Heroes. Hazama is an asshole. Hazama is Terumi. Terumi was one of the Six Heroes. Terumi betrayed the Six Heroes. Now, considering that [[spoiler: Jin is Hakumen]] and knows that Terumi is an asshole who tried to kill him and destroy the world... He did absolutely NOTHING to stop Hazama before anything could be a problem at all!
** In that timeline, [[spoiler:Jin]] would not have known that Hazama could be Terumi. He might have known a Hazama, but he would not realize that the two were the same. Besides, they were fighting the Black Beast at the time. Your priorities would have to be kind of skewed if you went after one man, rather than a world eating serpent.

** Also worth noting that Jin only finds out that Hazama is Terumi [[spoiler: after the continuity shift - i.e. where he should have fallen into the cauldron to become Hakumen - so the Hakumen that we all know and love never got the big reveal]]

** FridgeLogic may apply once you realize that the Black Beast's only limbs are heads. And how the Black Beast apparently (partially) reverted back to Ragna shortly before Hakumen decapitated it.

* Mai Natsume switches from using [[DualWielding a sword and dagger combination]] in ''Remix Heart'' to [[BladeOnAStick a spear]] in ''Variable Heart'' which takes place a few years later. Such a change makes sense, since switching from a sword to a spear would allow Mai to compensate for her reduced reach and strength after her transformation to a woman. Women, such as the wives of samurai, often historically used weapons with greater reach in order to compensate for their shorter height and lower upper body strength when compared to men.

** To add on to this, at the end of ''CS'' Arcade when Hazama gives ([[StealthInsult obviously feigned]]) commendation to Makoto for finding the cache of Prime Field Devices in Ibukido, she tells him that "it was practically screaming for attention". Doesn't sound like much at first, but [[spoiler:in the ''CP'' climax, Nu tells Ragna about the memories she copied from Noel regarding the experiment in Ibukido; how Terumi tried to forcibly merge with Noel only for the site to get obliterated by Take-Mikazuchi. To cover up the true nature of the Ikaruga Civil War, Terumi had to obstruct all access to the cauldron laboratory and discourage everyone from trying to approach it. However shoddy his workmanship is, he exploited Imperial decree to have the innermost ruins quarantined until the seithr built up to such a degree where anyone who tried to intrude would choke to death in moments, and the survivors irrevocably pulled into the Boundary with no way back. Five years later,]] all his "hard work" went to utter waste because Makoto was sent to the ruins. Let's run a checklist: Hazama can't be honest with Makoto [[note]]she'll use anything he says against him (discussing Relius' "random and untoward" interest caused her to dodge Relius later on)[[/note]], he can't lie to her [[note]]she'll pick it apart to find the truth (he attempted to have Makoto and Tsubaki go on ahead in ''Slight Hope'' so he could backstab the latter, but Makoto knew he was pulling the "combat's not my forte" routine out of his ass from a prior fight and willfully blocked him)[[/note]], he can't dodge the subject around her [[note]]she will drill him until she gets the answers she seeks (after losing Tsubaki, her insistent inquiries regarding Noel's [[ItsAWonderfulPlot nonexistent]] whereabouts wore away the last of his patience)[[/note]], he can't ignore her [[note]]she will act against him behind his back (his insistence that Relius deal with her caused her to go where he never wanted her, and he only "saved" Noel because of a lucky appearance)[[/note]], he can't focus entirely on her [[note]]the world will not stop for him to deal with her (both times he tried to end her life before him, Jin put him on ice and they both got away, and when he thought they were alone after Tsubaki ran off, Rachel showed up to kill-steal him)[[/note]], and as he found out, a straight-up fight with or without the Azure Grimoire is an exercise in attrition [[note]](she is too strong-willed to simply knuckle under, moreso when her friends are at risk)[[/note]]. Not only that, as one ''Teach Me, Miss Litchi'' episode shows, beastkins like her and Taokaka are naturally highly resistant to seithr, meaning that sending a beastkin with such expertise of espionage to Ibukido and expecting her to die by seithr poisoning is pretty much not his wisest move ever. So not only is Makoto an active threat to his plans on top of representing everything he wants abolished, but she just stated to him indirectly that she's a better spy than him, or at least that he sucks at his job; for a [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]] {{sociopath}}, this is an unforgivable insult. Between this and her ice-cold reaction to his whipping out the Azure Grimoire, if you're wondering what happened to his falsified affability in ''Calamity Trigger'', well... now you know.
