Not really an issue for me tho since this isn’t the first time I see a game or anime that keeps making up stuff as they go on, I knew from the start Nomura writing abilities isn’t the best (not saying it’s the worst either it’s still entertaining to watch) Guess I’m just not fan of the Weak narrative, if they want to rewrite something or retcon then they should make it like the Xigbar situation, I know he wasn’t luxu from the start until they decided that he will be, but still, at least they picked the character with most shady personality and has many secrets, I can buy that he is luxu, as for Vanitas tho if he tunes out to be his own person then (imo) that ruins his character, if you read his novel ofc, he was supposed to be an empty creature born from someone’s darkness, and the fact through bbs kh3D and Kh3 he keeps chasing ventus and claims to be Ventus’s other half, I won’t buy this weak narrative if he turns out to be his own person after making him say all those stuff, ofc knowing Nomura he will make it possible and even that will convince me later on, but as of “now” I’m not convinced (until I have enough time to accept it) if Vanitas turned out to be darkness from khux.The saga is made up of multiple arcs; and it doesn't matter if retcons occur within a single arc or multiple ones within the same story. They also haven't been "changing stuff" to suit the narrative. Say what you want about Nomura's ability to write a story but the changes that you've mentioned have been the result of either characters deceiving each other or acting without complete knowledge which are both perfectly reasonable literary devices.
but I see where everyone is coming from, but I won’t deny that I’m not fan of rewriting or retcon stuff in the series just to fit into this or that category, just hope the series won’t get more complicated then it already is
