  1. I really wish Yakuza LAD wasn’t turn cringed bros. I think I’m just gonna watch all the cutscenes on YouTube now or something. Guess it’ll give me more time to cool off between the mainline games and the Judgment games, since I won’t be playing Yakuza ever again if this continues.

  2. Other than daigo, majima, saejima, and technically kiryu and kashiwagi, is there anyone from the tojo who hasn’t been killed or betrayed them?

      Nishida
      Minami
      Yayoi
      Mitsuo (I mean, this really depends on your "betrayed them" criteria since he technically didn’t)
      Ryusho
      Kaito
      Higashi

      If you count satellite families then Kitakata and Madarame though Madarame technically doesn’t count anymore.

      I can’t remember if Yagami was Matsugane family or if he just had his degree bankrolled by the old man. I think it was the latter.

    >“It’s a title with impact, so I believed that those who would follow would continue doing so. Other than that, I also believed that those who followed with it would quickly become hardcore fans. That’s a tendency that still hasn’t changed much. What was unexpected was that the number of female players has increased. Currently, about 20% are female players.”

    >“While that is something to be happy for, Yakuza is something that is made for male players, so we will be careful not to be too conscious of the female users and derail from what we want to make. Lately, there’s been a lot more players from Asia as well. That means we need to appeal more to Asia, but not focus too much on that, too.”

  5. perhaps
    just make sure to put in some females enemies in there so we can go full on ryona. Rumble Roses but with the usual Yakuza shtick. hubs, minigames, etc.

  6. Nah probably not part of Yakuza is taking of your shirts and punching each other I don’t think they’d do that with women

      Yagami doesn’t do it though. Hell, even in 4/5 I’m pretty sure Kiryu is the only one to do the shirt rip in the final battles.

        That’s because he isn’t a Yakuza. Unless development happened between games or some shit.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

      No sweetie, it’s because it’s the only thing men care about when it comes to women.

        • 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.

            I wish there was a game where you played a femme fatale like Fujiko.

            Case and point

            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.

          • >implying Fujiko is some kind of pushover.
            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.

          • >She uses her sex appeal because it’s the easiest way to get what she wants.
            Yeah like all women do
            >But when push comes to shove, she’s probably one of the most lethal women alive.
            Yeah le stronk female character juss like black widow from mahvel amirite?

            t. doesn’t know anything about the military besides movies and video games

  9. >wonderful Saeko
    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
