Yu-Gi-Oh! is historically bad with regards to female character wiring.

It has always been poor with regards to its female character cast.

This is not because of one fairly par-for-course and average screen writer being at fault for female character writing in Yu-Gi-Oh! being poor.

The one time we had a different head writer, Kamishiro Tsutomu with ARC-V, the show was still terrible with regards to its female cast writing.

This is due to a long series of things regarding Japanese culturally ingrained sexism, how toy IPs are laned between genders, and the target and periphary audiences simply do not want female characters to have significant focus in what is a power fantasy for boys.

Correlation is not Causation.

Blaming Yoshida for the lack of strong prominent female characters will get you Warned by the staff going into the future.

Please do not continue to perpetuate this myth.

If you didn't have such strong ideas about where the story should go, you wouldn't end up so disappointed when the writers have other ideas.
