I don’t know why there’s still such a schism between the old and new Hitori tags. Maybe I am just painfully impatient?

maybe they prefer the "natural-sounding" prior name? Hepburn romanization technically considers both -ou (default Hepburn) and -oh (MOFA/Passport Hepburn) as correct since there's never been any uniform way to render long vowels, both between Kunreishiki and Hepburn and within Hepburn itself.

Also, should these maybe imply Gotoh Hitori too?

The question is, when you search for Gotoh Hitori, do you expect her other forms to show up? (Or if you are a truly fucked up individual and blacklist her, do you want to avoid the other forms too?) I think you would if she's the focus of the image, even in ocopus/tsuchinoko form, but I'm not so sure about a picture of one of the other girls with a lil Bocchi on their head or something.

Looking at ~gotoh_hitori_(octopus) ~gotoh_hitori_(tsuchinoko) -gotoh_hitori, (apart from post #6474862 which appears to have been a mistagged regular Bocchi and I fixed), most of them do seem to feature Bocchi as more of an accessory than a character. For post #6287196 I can see an argument for tagging the main char tag, but for the likes of post #6338276 it definitely doesn't seem appropriate.

I have a hard time imagining not expecting to see her other forms as well when searching for Gotoh Hitori, and even if someone does not want to see her other forms when searching for her, even without excluding the alternate forms' tags, they're still less than 10% of all Gotoh Hitori posts combined. If in this already small chunk, only a tiny minority of posts are "less appropriate" to get the main character tag (and to me, post #6338276 getting tagged as gotoh hitori isnt exactly inappropriate), let's just go with the implication.

Well, the precedent is that if there's a transformed/animal form for a character, it implies the original character as well. See, for example, Hakurei Reimu (fox)

If people don't want non-human bocchis in their bocchi search, they can use -animalization. If they want a different non-human bocchi, they can use relevant feature's tags like cat_girl

We also need to do Bocchi's family as well. I... don't remember their names, though.

and one last thing. Would it be worth creating an alias of Bocchi_(Bocchi_the_Rock!) > gotoh_hitori? I could see people not knowing her real name, or getting her confused with Hitori Bocchi
