** Pretty sure she's just a very busty woman in a world where many of the prominent female characters (Bullet, Makota, Nine, Tsubaki) are already quite large themselves. Given that super-feminine Noel gets mistaken for a boy or a crossdresser for having what looks like a B-cup, I'd say it's just the artists and devs choosing to average breasts on the larger side.

* Hakumen's unwillingness to work with others is treated as a character flaw, but isn't that a bit of InformedWrongness, during Continuum Shift at least? He doesn't want anything to do with Rachel, but Rachel for the most part isn't any better a team player than he is since she barely lifts a finger against Terumi's plans and keeps withholding information from Ragna that could help him like that Terumi has a better version of the Azure Grimoire, instead just saying the reasoning is "too complicated." Likewise in his good ending he's supposed to leave things up to Jin, and while Jin shows CharacterDevelopment and starts to [[TookALevelInBadass take a level in badass]], in Hakuman's story he displays neither, in effect re-enforcing Hakumen's views that his past self can't do anything right.

** The general idea is that while Hakumen is just another player in the overall game of the Continuum Shift, Rachel is an Observer; She, Terumi, Takamagahara, and possibly Kokonoe at the time have the RippleProofMemory that the rest of the cast doesn't benefit from. Rachel, with her knowledge of the timeloop, isn't allowed to take action directly without getting her status as an Observer revoked (which would either A) erase her from existance, or B) maker her just as hepless as the rest of the cast); the fact it's 'too complicated' is her way of saying 'It won't matter if I tell you now, you won't remember it the next time around.'. The best she can do is try to be an unseen chess player in the background. Hakumen, on the other hand, isn't restricted by that little metaphysical law. All we need is one version of Hakumen to develop that also coincides with the 'main' timeline in order to progress.

* What exactly IS the Boundary? I haven't completed CPEX's story yet, but is it ever really explained? So Roy turned into Arakune, Haku-Men was there, and Terumi threw Nine and Trinity in right? If so, what dictates when someone is killed by it, or turn into something like Arakune

* Litchi complains about her chest stopping her from wearing cosplay outfits, but what explains Bullet being able to wear them (she's close to Litchi's bust size)?

*** Actually, it's implied Rachel explicitly states in the true ending of ''Calamity Trigger'' that Take-Mikazuchi fires can only fire once every four years.years. Of course, this is due to the extremely low levels of seithr in space[[spoiler: -- in ''Chronophantasma'', Izanami brings it down to earth to fire it more frequently]].

*** Japan was indeed destroyed, but that doesn't mean every Japanese man, woman, and child was as well. Additionally, the Hierarchical Cities are basically cities that are hundreds of feet over the world's surface in elevation. I do believe one of the cities is placed over where Japan used to be.

***Alright, let me put an end to this confusion. Neither Ragna nor Nu are entirely responsible for the time loop. The one's truly responsible are the beings known as the Takama-ga-hara. They watch over the world endlessly and whenever an event occurs that brings the world towards the path of destruction, they turn back time in order to make subtle changes to the timeline to keep the world from being destroyed. Say that Taokaka or Noel were to die. Despite their varying importance, they are still key figures in the timeline, so if either of them die, BOOM! Time loop. This is especially prevalent with Ragna, as the last thing the Takama-ga-hara need is for him to be turned into the Black Beast. These beings would only continue to loop time until the right events were to occur to keep the world on a path that would avoid utter destruction. Unfortunately, they would soon be outsmarted and taken down by Yuuki Terumi for an indefinite period of time, leaving the only thing to loop time being the Master Unit.

* In the Remix Heart manga, the complete fusion between a human and a grimoire is called a Remix Heart, and Mai is one such thing (after she merged with the "No Name"). Then could that mean Ragna is a Remix Heart too, since he fuses with the Azure Grimoire? (Not to mention [[spoiler:Izanami might cause Ragna to unwillingly fuse with it further...]])

** Technically since [[spoiler: the Black Beast was a combination of both CT Nu and CT Ragna, CP Ragna might have gotten the clothes and sword of CT Ragna within the black beast. The game doesn't show it, but in the Phase Shift Novel Ragna does have at least the jacket when Celica meets him within the Black Beast before he returned to the present so him not having those things in the game was kind of odd (though the game did gloss over a bunch of things from the novels, so it might be that they skipped it)]]
