I think the firearms come up later in the story, but the game logic sticks in that it relies on stats.

I don't know. He seems to at least realize it works like a game. It's just a real game world, where things follow a fair amount of game logic but things still have consequences. He doesn't seem to have any problem grasping this far as I see. He just keeps saying it's real to try and get through to the others the sort of weight their actions have.

Game mechanics aside - in the real world, bows had several advantages over the rifles of the time - it's not without reason that no less a figure than Ben Franklin had argued (unsuccessfully) for their being standard-issue for the Continental Army (reference).

If I recall right, each of the other three had their own example of Failure to Do Research and/or Failure to Follow Through. And for irony bonus, it's Itsuki who drops a variation of a quote famously attributed to one Mr. Parker... I don't recall if it's before or after his own slip-up.

BTW, when I said " Shield Hero tries to pretend" I didn't mean SH the character but SH the work of fiction.

Curious question here: outside of perhaps being bashed for their gender were it known, why does the writer of the web novels choose not to disclose their gender?

My guess would be just overall privacy. They want to keep everything a secret until they've decided to reveal their identity. Perhaps they have another job (I've heard private LN authors might keep a separate job), which may become difficult if they're known to be spending so much time writing.

The strange practice I've seen Japanese writers exercise of doing interviews with masks on seems to be a Japanese thing. I don't know, maybe obsessive otaku will otaku and bad stuff has happened in the past?

Because having your identity public does little good whereas anonymity is gold. You get the fame, you get the money, and if you want to go without someone bugging you then there you go.

As far as I know, most japanese don't like to stand out much.
And to these writers, who may be quite introverted or socially awkward, that may mean a lot.

Also less likely you have to deal with the small handful of the crazy loons.

Well, still a very Japanese thing, I'd say. Try to find a western writer of a famous novel who comes to interviews with a a mask on.

Yeah. Kind of figures it'd be a fairly-known setup considering how there's no surprise in Eromanga Sensei to first seeing the artist and "he" has a mask on online. If that series had been written in America I imagine that spot where the hero pulls up the livestream and sees the hoodie and mask would've been followed by a fair degree of surprise and confusion at the oddity, not a simple "oh so this's Eromanga-sensei is it".
