Does the unexplained parts of TWEWY drive anyone else crazy with the possibilities?
I mean seriously. What are other games like outside of Shibuya, and what do they use to fight noise instead of pins? Imagine people running around fighting noise with foam fingers lol, because the composer in Boston is a baseball nut. What exactly is the higher plane like, the angel ranks, who's at the top of the hierarchy? And if there is a higher plane where beings exist at a higher frequency, could there be a lower plane too?

Oh, yes. There was so much left unexplained in-story, along with the endless possibilities for the TWEWY world outside of Shibuya. I had hoped that the secret reports would answer all my questions, but I only have Another Day to finish and they've left me with far more questions than answers. They focused mostly on Hanekoma's parallel story events and emphasizing the angels without, you're right, going into enough detail to explain everything.

It's been a while since I've played all the way through TWEWY, so I'm writing this from memory; correct me if I get any of my facts wrong.

It's bizarre that they would introduce angels after the main story ended... but then again, the whole set-up of TWEWY is a little strange, the way it has you go all the way through the story again in order to discover Hanekoma's side of the story. I'm not sure exactly how much of his story to trust, though, because he strikes me as something of an unreliable narrator. (I don't have my game on hand, so I don't have examples.) I guess part of that comes from the way he builds his story, kind of portraying himself in the right and never explicitly stating that he's the fallen angel (if I remember correctly). It's interesting how all his character development takes place behind the scenes. On the other hand, everything we know about the angels comes from Mr. H.

I still have a lot of questions about Joshua, too. (To be fair, though, the secret reports could probably be filled with Joshua's entire backstory and I still wouldn't be satisfied.)

It never occurred to me that the players in other games might use something other than pins. But that makes sense, since pins are specific to Shibuya. In other locations where pins aren't so trendy, it really wouldn't be practical to use them.
