Regarding the edit to Ensemble Darkhorse:

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: After the feminine Mewtwo from the 16th anime series movie proved to be unpopular, many fans enjoyed Mewtwo in this special, as it provided a third interpretation of the character after the two anime series Mewtwo - essentially, an uncontrollable and highly dangerous superpowered wild animal. And heck, many fans agree that having no voicenote  is better than having a kindly female one.

The last line was cut on the grounds of being sexist. That seems like Political Correctness Gone Mad since the point is more the "kindly" part, and it doesn't change the fact that the second Mewtwo voice was, in fact, female. Though the last line is a bit cruft-y, I think its point is valid.

It also needs to be edited because it's a fully spoilered example, which is bad form.

Here's my proposed rewrite, which I'm going to put in if there's no objections.

  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The True Final Boss, Mewtwo. Many fans enjoyed Mewtwo in this special, as it provided a third interpretation of the character after the two anime series Mewtwo - essentially, an uncontrollable and highly dangerous superpowered wild animal. Fans took this game-accurate portrayal much better than the the kindly female portrayal from the 16th anime series movie.

There is still a sense of bias in the last sentence since Origins Mewtwo is only compared to the Genesect Mewtwo, instead of the two anime interpretations of Mewtwo together. Why is the original Mewtwo omitted yet Genesect Mewtwo is compared? Because of this, it can be easily cut without loss since it adds nothing other than a stealth Take That.
