Now that teen wolf is over i feel like i need to share an opinion that has agonized me for over a year.
What Jeff Davis did to Arden Cho was inexcusable.
To create such a strong japanese american character (as a japanese american woman trust me when i say there are far and few between asian american characters in american television and even fewer japanese american characters) and then to just take away that character but suddenly she “has no more storylines to be written” is such utter bullshit and fake excuses for the fact that you created a character to build a storyline off japanese mythology only to cancel her character when that storyline was over and your lazy writing chose not to include her in further narratives. You created a character and her family to further move along your japanese mythology storyline. You made her a love interest for the main character. You build a storyline for her that included her powers and interests and you built her to be liked by the fans of the show. For that i commend you but just barely. You gave us a powerful strong badass supernatural character who was a kitsune which is not a common supernatural character here in america. I thank you for that. You created a character that i deeply looked up to. She was young and funny and in love with scott and arden cho and tyler posey had a real dynamic that was such an innocent love it made it believable. You showed an asian american character who was so much than just stereotypes. I thought for once, i saw someone like myself on tv. It was refreshing.
And then you ended her storyline for your own bullshit reasons and gave us a bullshit excuse for it. You bring back all these useless characters that CHOSE to leave the show for the finale but you can’t even manage to bring kira up once at all. She was scotts freaking girlfriend jeff davis. But instead of breaking them up you just write her off in such a lazy way we all actually believed she was coming back. You write her off with claims that you just didn’t have any more storylines for her which we didn’t understand in the slightest but almost believed and then have the very next season revolve around lightning. You have the literalnext season revolve around Kira’s main power and you tell us there was no more storyline for her? Thats bullshit and honestly as much as i love teen wolf that was the most disappointing thing ever done. Thank you teen wolf for so many great memories but honestly all i will ever remember is how much i loved the cast and that jeff davis wrote off one of the best woc characters for asian americans to look up to.
Arden Cho and Kira Yukimura deserved way better than what you ever gave them.
