I've got one title whose next stage is unlocked by getting 300 crossbow skills and has me listed at about 190/300. Yet if I go to the records, I have killed about 575 with the crossbow. Unless one counts the pipe bombs and the other doesn't.
However, that still doesn't explain why there is a title whose goal is "collect 40 figures" and the progress meter has me at 21/40 despite the fact that I don't even have the achievement for getting 3.
What the heck is with this system?

My guess is each rank starts at 0. So for instance if rank 1 required 50 kills to complete it and rank 2 required 100 , rank 2 would start at 0/100 to advance to rank 3, even though you already have 50 kills from getting the first rank.
