Post Reply Which author is better with their female characters? Akira Toriyama or Masashi Kishimoto?

I would say no because some of them get some or at least decent development. Plus, not all men have 6-packs in the series (i.e. Omaeda). Before I go on, I think this boils down to another big topic, which is, the whole fan service and sexualization of characters in Anime/Manga. That's always been a thing for quite some time and not just in Shonen Manga either. It's their thing and I guess that's what their market aims for.
It depends on your definition of sexualization. I don't think it's a bad thing to have good looking females, or even those with large breasts like Rangiku or Orihime. It is quite another matter when referring to children, but that's a different beast altogether. By that logic of not all men have six packs, we could also say not all women are idealized either, (I.E. Unohana.) And is there anything wrong with all the guys having six packs?

What do you mean by sexualization?

No, it's not wrong for all men to have 6-packs, but doing so would eliminate any realism with a series when it comes to human appearance, despite it being a fictional series. With the women in Bleach not all women are idealized or sexualized, but some are, which could be considered sexist. Same with men, but I do applaud Kubo for adding some realism by not having every chick have big racks and not all men having 6-pack abs.

Why did you add an option for Oda but give your opinion on him?

Anyway, I was going to say Oda. Unlike in DragonBall and Naruto, none of the main female characters are useless.
