Ran into a bit of a snag for the chapter titles on Hyde & Closer. Everything starts-out fine & dandy with them being listed as "Act #: Title"... until the 6th volume where they just throw it out and start-over with "New Act #: Title." For consistency sake I did the third option, but was wondering which way is considered more correct.

1 - Be consistent, ignore their numbering and don't include anything before the colon.
2 - Ignore anything before the colon until they loop.
3 - Be consistent, list them all for both parts.

I personally don't get what you're asking. The listing you linked is consistent with what Wikipedia lists as the chapter titles (although Wikipedia lists "Part 2 chapter #", so it seems that whatever's listed in the encyclopedia is correct to how it's supposed to be listed.

The question is primarily becuase something like "Chapter 1" is not a title. So should it be excluded from the title listing at all times, or are there cases where it makes sense to include them (at least when part of a longer or sub-title?)

Well, for Sailormoon, the first two arcs have only the chapter titles listed, but for the Infinity, Dream, and Stars arcs, they're listed by "Arc #: Chapter Title" (or just "Arc #", for Stars).

I guess, for this title, leaving "Chapter #" off of the titles in the first part, and for the second part list the "Part 2 #" or whatever?

Why even include the numbers in the title? They are already numbered so it is redundant, at least up to chapter 46.

See the following with regard to episodes, but the same logic should apply to chapters:
