      Shows up only after Ichiban and the others stopped the retirement home plot, and after the father dies. Instead of leaving again, she joins your party of older misfits…as you constantly put their lives in danger.

        Adachi is the only one in the main group who has a plot reason to stick with Ichiban at all, they all stick with him because friendship and shit
        Would’ve been a good time to bring trainers back though, each character could have one that actually teaches them how to fight

      Female spies/assassins/criminals are all just glorified prostitutes who use sex to get what they want. Every single one. Because it’s the only leverage they actually have.

      If Atomic Blonde were accurate it would’ve been 90 minutes of Charlize Theron convincing some guy to give up state secrets in exchange for anal.

            Moid confuses moids’ single-minded fixation on pussy with that being the only thing women have going for them. In reality, women are more intelligent and capable than moids give them credit for, pussy is just an easy way to get one over them because they are just arrogant horndogs in the end.

              You don’t play as a yakuza in these games, at most you play as someone booted out of the yakuza or something

              I don’t ever see a female character getting brutalized like the male characters do. I just played a mission where Saori pretties herself up to go flirt information out of some dudes. That’s literally more accurate than any of them going neck and neck. Im assuming if they did have a fem protagonist they’d have to use the garbage turn based combat.

                She uses her sex appeal because it’s the easiest way to get what she wants. But when push comes to shove, she’s probably one of the most lethal women alive.
                Unlike the others in Lupin’s group, she uses assault rifles, SMGs and grenades. This hints at an actual military background.

                I wouldn’t want to mess with her.

                  You haven’t watched Lupin. Of course Miyazaki made Fujiko competent because he makes all the women/girls competent and has openly stated that. In the first and second seasons Fujiko gets constantly kidnapped and gets pushed around.

                  Imbecile.

                    Especially in recent years Fujiko has been pushed as a badass even more than during Miyazaki’s time with the franchise. Stop acting like you know shit.

              I guess that’s why every time an "intelligent and capable" woman tries to outmaneuver a man who doesn’t care for her pussy, all their brilliant plans go down in flames, as many historical precedents have shown time and again.

      Do female Yakuza even exist?
      Female centric crime drama is maybe one of those things that just doesn’t quite work, since most of the crimes women commit in real life are things like smothering infants or kleptomania. Not exactly thrilling material to work with.

          The tattoos in the games have actual significance to the characters and are designed by an IRL traditional Japanese tattoo artist named Horitomo. It’d be kind of had to have tattoo customization because of it.

          I like how culture war shit has so poisoned the well that you can’t go "hey, a Yakuza game with a female lead might be interesting" without getting fags screeching about MUH FEMINIST BULLSHIT or it being unreleastic or on the other side the "YEAH WE NEED STRONG WAHMEN YOU GO SISTAH" types. I just want something that’d bring a different story perspective on things and go into areas that they haven’t really explored yet in the games, fuck.

          Yagami was never a yakuza, just a kid that Matsugane looked out for.

          just reminded me the only woman you can fight in the entire series is Nair in Yakuza 4, Tanimura’s sparring partner
          surprised they never revisited the possibility of even just fighting a woman in the series since they set precedent that theyre willing to have female combatants and even had Miss Tatsu destroy a load of thugs in Yakuza 0 but i reckon part of it is that Nair can be damn tough unless you know how to parry her effectively

          The devs got more and more autistic about the "NOOOOOO YOU CAN NEVER FIGHT A WOMAN, NO WOMEN GETTING HIT BY GUYS, ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE PURE SEXLESS VIRGINS" shit with each game.

      Only if the protag fought exclusively women. In the three (kinda four: including both OG 1 and Kiwami 1) Yakuza games I’ve played, you never fight any women to my knowledge. I’ve never played a game where you’re a woman fighting hordes of men that isn’t cringe.

        as i mentioned in

        just reminded me the only woman you can fight in the entire series is Nair in Yakuza 4, Tanimura’s sparring partner
        surprised they never revisited the possibility of even just fighting a woman in the series since they set precedent that theyre willing to have female combatants and even had Miss Tatsu destroy a load of thugs in Yakuza 0 but i reckon part of it is that Nair can be damn tough unless you know how to parry her effectively

        there is Nair in Yakuza 4 who is a sparing partner for one of the protagonists, i think the best way for a female protagonist would be to have them fight similarly to Tanimura in 4, focus on grappling moves but have more elements of crowd control and weapon skill like Shinada since Tanimura became crap the moment he had to deal with groups larger than 3 or 4 as well as any bosses that couldn’t be grappled reliably

      females can’t be yakuza tho so they’ll have to call it something else. Saeko could have made a cool protagonist but I feel like her story is already done.

        They could continue the Judgement series with a feMC now that they basically cut ties with Whatshisface.

          The Judgment series MC gets brutalised harder than some Yakuza MCs have been, its not happening
          Why is Ganker so desperate to roleplay as a prostitute or whatever anyway

      No, but I would play a Judgement game with Sugiura and Higashi instead of Yagami and Kaito.

      I was pretty stoked when I heard Haruka would be playable in 5 cause I thought she’d be taking a page out of Kiryu’s style but adapted to compensate for her size. Maybe some flow like water kungfu bullshit. Nope, we got fucking gay idol battles

      A female Yakuza is not a yakuza if she doesn’t have a semi erotic geisha covering all of her back and is secretly protecting a japanese high school girl from horny thugs.

      Woman crime lord character is the most retarded shit ever.
      The moment opportunity arises, she will be raped and forced into submission by a stronger guy.

        last time someone tried doing that in Yakuza it ended in Kiryu dragging him across half of Tojo HQ covering it in his blood followed by him getting shot down by her own son before he could do anything more than kiss her, it’s been well established in the Yakuza series those who hold strong convictions inspire strong loyalty and will be protected in circumstances they lack the strength to fight back

          Tojo clan should’ve fallen years ago, Kiryu is actually a villain

        Woman crime lord is possible in heavily family-oriented culture like East Asia. But it usually involve the death of the patriarch.

        Generic NPC girl is a pretty fun looking one to fight with. Didn’t someone also make a femKiryu mod for 6 or K2 recently?

      The main audience for Yakuza in japan is female so I doubt they’ll ever make it.
      Same with Phoenix Wright.

        Give her a harem of hunky crime boys and they might even make more cash.

      How is this a thing I will never understand. The most boring female character of all time. Basically just your coworker who for some reason keeps hanging around.

      Sure. If the female protag is 10/10, not desexualized, no face scan.
      Otherwise nope. And this is true for all games
