It's not exactly a secret that the Yakuza series is absolutely abysmal when it comes to their treatment of women. So of course they would pick one of the most blatantly sexist manga to adapt when making a crossover.

Why couldn't one of the Lost Paradise original characters be a female martial artist? Did we really need "Good Jagi", complete with the same weapon? Nanto has 108 styles, is there not one whose successor is a woman? And no, Yuria absolutely does not count. The series treats her as an inanimate object.

They even managed to almost completely write out Mamiya, confining her to one sidestory where she doesn't even have a voice. Just embarrassing and really telling of the mentality the Yakuza devs have.

I'm just glad they made the game it's great. There were some female warriors in the series. This is about kenshiro and he is great.
Power without perception is spiritually useless and of no true value.

The fact that you want to turn a simple thing like a video game into a SJW issue is really telling of the mentality you have.

That assumes he's arguing in good faith to begin with, which he has displayed no evidence of.

I know that OP is trolling, but let's get real: Despite being more of a plot device than a character, when you think about it Yuria is one of the most powerful characters in the series and she doesn't even need to beat anyone up with magic kung fu. Pretty much anyone who meets her gets captivated by her. Kenshiro and Shin fell in love with her, while Toki, Raoh and Juza also fell in love with her in the past. Before the war, she turned the heart of one of the most notorious outlaws by putting a puppy in his hand, which made him not only immediately swear his life to protect her, but to protect the lives of any orphans he'd meet. She singlehandedly dismantled the entirety of Raoh's invading army by just telling them that destroying the Nanto capital is wrong. Her natural charisma makes the charisma that the Star of Enchantment (Yuda) is supposed to posses pretty much trivial. Though I guess Yuda makes up for it by being a master schemer.

Prove me wrong. You can't.

Maybe it's because Japan has a different culture than the one you're used to Ratter? Ever thought about that? Go to Japan one day, I did. You'd be surprised how different things can be a few borders away. Don't be so racist.

Now even kenshiro is sexist lol.

You should be grateful that Sega is probably one of the few developers that continue to work without being conditioned by the mass hysteria of the american SJW.

Look at what they did to the last of us 2, now that is a sexist SJW-friendly game...
