Against the merge
Just like Dr. Mason isn't Kouichi Ooyama and Ken isn't Takumi Akabane, Ishihara shouldn't be merged with the real Ishihara. He plays an important role in the game, he is more than just a cameo (unlike Imakuni?), IMHO. The fact that they've left his name unchanged in English version is of no value. --Maxim 19:03, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
