Naoko Kouda (幸田 直子, 26 cast roles), a seiyuu, has 20 staff roles attributed to her that should be attributed to Naoko Yukida (幸田 直子, 20 staff roles), an animator with the same name.

Naoko Kouta (幸田 直子, 1 staff role) is also an animator with the same name as Naoko Yukida (whose family name has elsewhere been romanized as "Kouda"). Both have been credited on works with animation produced by Production I.G. The English website for the company credits a Naoko Koda (no kanji available) with in-between animation for Asience: Hairy Tale, but contains no other references to anyone with the same or a similar name on any other project. Furthermore, a Naoko Koda (幸田 直子) (as romanized in the FUNimation English dub end credits) is credited as an animation director on episodes 1-2, 4, 9, and 12 of Attack on Titan: Junior High (the animation of which was also produced by Production I.G.). It seems feasible the two are the same person with a varying name romanization. Is there any way to verify if this is the case?

The main complication I can see is that there is one CG staff credit for Kouda. It looks like that one is.. 神田尚子. Looks like that actually belongs to Naoko Kanda since they do CG at Shiitake Digital. There is also a photography credit there that probably doesn't belong though, also 神田尚子 (and naturally, while every single source provided the credits in Kanji, no-one had actually set the kanji name for this person...)

All the animation and design credits are now in one place under person#158951 and I have re-added the CG credit under Kanda,
