This simple premise is readily and easily picked apart, but it escapes my wrath on the grounds that the main characters in question probably aren't very smart which is reinforced by the numerous references to their pasts which frame them all as fallible in some way and the fact that Hana at one point finally agrees to go to the police which Miyuki points out was a blatant waste of their time.
