Why use Kage over Akuma? Akuma deals more damage in more practical scenarios. He has better pokes. His air game is way better. At top level tournaments Akuma does way better as well. And they play very similar too, it just seems Kage is a worse Akuma.
I was a hipster way before it was cool.

For the erection you get when you finally land that mixup you been working on.
I hold you accountable for any damage done to my floof!

Kage and Akuma do not play similarly, in ANY regard.

Akuma is more well-rounded and has a billion options for every situation, allowing for a wide variety of play styles. Kage is about pure, nonstop aggression, making the opponent guess and trying to gain momentum off of every mistake they make.

Simply put, Akuma doesn't have to rely on gimmicks as much as Kage does. Even without access to VT1 or Demon, Akuma doesn't need them to be a threat. Kage, on the other hand, is very reliant on fake mixups, fake frame traps, and VT attributes in order to confuse the opponent or tack on damage.

Kage's Raging Demon can be combo'd. I think his pressure is a little better outside of VT. I do think they need to buff Kage some, maybe give him more range on some of his normals

Better pressure than akuma?
I don't agree with that.
I do agree that kage needs more range on his fireballs and his c.mk though.
