    It's weird how you put Aki's dub first name together with her original last name, while you call the rest of the your mentioned characters by their original names.
    I FUCKING HATE DUB NAMES! I HATE DUB NAMES SO MUCH!

    I thought for sure it was "Akiza," not "Aki." Generally, the dub has a tendency to shorten names for convenience, but it was the opposite in this case.

    Also, I have not seen the series in forever, so...

    Anyways, editing.

    ...Yeah, always the female characters that have to suffer. It has almost gotten to the point where one could say that the producers are sexist. Of course, I guess the producers believe that the show does not need decent female protagonists, because YGO is a series mainly targeted towards the male demography.

    Credit where due, Konami is NOT the ones writing the show or the characters. they just publish the IRL Card game and oversee its related events, nothing more.
    Can't Blame the writers too much for this one either (well you can for Kotori and PrtII Aki and Luna, THAT was unforgivable) as this is a Shonen Anime here. Well-written and Developed Female characters are not exactly what their target Demographic cares about

    Today, I have made it evident that I am, in fact, not perfect. You are right, 4Kids was to blame for Aki's name change. As far as poor female leads go, I guess the Shonen demography only cares about good male leads, hence shonen.

    Then why add the character at all?! I mean, I do not expect every character in a series to play an important part; that would be asinine. But if you (in general) are going to introduce a character and have it appear as often as the main protagonist in a series, then it stands to reason that the character is a "main character." And like all protagonists, there needs to be character development.

    ...Oh, I know.

    To hell with having strong female protagonists, let's just throw in another handful of male characters. It is not like the series cannot make a harem out of what it already has to begin with... /sarcasm

    I will edit my last post to correct the mistake.

    because all male cast isn't good either

    Female characters need to be there, they just aren't expected to be as well done as the male characters. don't mistake that for being unecessary, shit like Kotori is unforgivable no matter what, but taking not dominate roles is the norm

    Even if the male cast is not great or perfect, they sure as hell get far more unnecessary attention.

    Who is Kotori? do not answer.
