i find it odd that hanyuu is actually a small girl rather than an adult. =/. she should be an adult considering her past. kinda odd for her to pushback

Maybe Hanyuu was that age when she was turned into 'a god' and thus will always appear like that. That or she looks that age in order to fit in with Rika more and can adjust that as she feels.

Well with Ire I'd say its more of a combination. Rika actually inquiring about this kind of thing may be playing the key role. Since she has shown real maturity to Ire if she asks about things like this he may be more willing to talk about it. Though if Hanyuu hadn't remembered Takano being responsible then she probably would never ask it. So maybe not using powers per say other than remembering from a previous world.

I'd say Akasaka remmbering was a little more supernatural. Agree checking out Piece 51 (with the accompanying BGM ) will show just why he would remember this time and would show up. While Hanyuu didn't pop up over at his place and explain the situation it wasn't just some stroke of really random luck that he'd come this time.

She may just wanted to optimize her moeness; trying to overthrow Rika as the Queen of Moe.

I assume that Hanyuu is a small girl to match Rika. They aren't entirely separate, after all.

In fact explaining that Rika and Hanyuu are making these things happen was the point of Hanyuu's confrontation with Takano at the end of Takano's story. You can make things happen if you have enough force of unserving will to make things happen. Rika and Hanyuu now have that combined will to beat Takano and know where to point it. Irie tells Rika what will happen because his will is weak and her will is strong. Keiichi can turn that poor baseball player inside out with idiotic arguments because Keiichi's will is strong. And so on.

It's probably the latter.

No you can't, unless you actually do something to achieve these things. It's not as if Rika interrogated Irie for hours before he spilled the beans.

I am not thrilled by this aspect of the story, either, so...And he achieves that not only because of his strong will anyway (he is supposed to be pretty much a genius) so I really don't see the relevance of this example.

In that case you may want to give piece 51 a read. You might also want to follow Kashiklari's directions for maximizing the emotional impact
Well, that's all fine but it doesn't make the anime any less flawed, until up to now at least, does it?

Having no experience to this mythos prior to the animes, I must confess I absolutely love the device of Rika using a "manga" as a way to test drive ideas for her salvation. Is that true to the game?

huh??? no irie tells rika because she asked =/. its not about will or anything. rika just wanted to know and irie feels responsible to tell her since she is an important test subject.

and keiichi can turn that dude inside out cause that dude actually believes whatever he says.
