    As a chinese man myself this is not a big deal, he doesn't need to like the names everyone has a different opinion you have to respect other people opinions ::thonk::

    They obviously made the unit for Taiwan (which has a large FFBE playerbase), but since Taiwan is part of GL, it would have been a silly idea to use the translation of the names (White Dragon and Scarlet Bird), since no one uses English names like that in the game unless they are titles, like "White Dragon Rain" or something of that nature.

    However, to the ear of most people who don't speak Chinese, Bai Hu and Zhu Que are incredibly difficult to say (or remember). So I think Meme's criticism was valid. It's a mouthful if you don't speak Chinese, and while using Chinese names is consistent with Gumi using Japanese names in-game (like Sakura, Ayaka, etc)., Japanese has a far kinder romanization system to non-Japanese speakers than Chinese does to non-Chinese speakers.
