Hiromasa UTSUBARI (#104897)
Hiromasa RYŌ (#121035)

The actual name is 梁 博雅 and it is not Japanese (it's Chinese): [source]
Her name is written as "LIANG BOYA" in episode #1 of Hunter x Hunter:

"Liang Boya" or "Boya Liang" has no entry in ANN Encyclopedia yet. (I don't know which way is preferred on ANN; surname first, or last)

Given name first, surname last.

If this is the case, then the name would be Boya Liang.

Does this request have a specific problem? Why is it still open, with no response?
I thought the entries #104897 and #121035 would be merged into Boya Liang.

Basically this isn't really a merge situation. If you are confident that these credits belong to Boya Liang, you could create an entry for him(?) and add the credits from Hiromasa Utsubari and Hiromasa Ryo with good sources. We can at least see that the Hunter X Hunter episode 1 credit is for him.

THis isn't a merge because if what you suggest is correct, then Hiromasa Utsubari and Hiromasa Ryo are not aliases, just mistaken name readings. However, Hiromasa Utsubari and Hiromasa Ryo could be names of other people, so their entries will be kept separate.

Merging is pretty much for name changes due to marriage/divorce, or known aliases.

Boya Liang is a (young) female animator.
This is her photo, while working on the Anime Mirai Project "Death Billiards": [source]

Hiromasa Utsubari and Hiromasa Ryō are definitely misreadings of a Chinese name here. They are taken from ending credits, where Boya Liang's name is written as 梁博雅; examples are:
Attack on Titan (episode 7): see here
Hunter × Hunter (TV 2011) (episode 94, or 100): see here
Photo Kano (episode 5): see here.
Sunday Without God (episode 3): see here

Hiromasa Utsubari and Hiromasa Ryō entries don't belong to a real animator at this moment. These entires will be empty (all their credits belong to Boya Liang) and their existence would be meaningless.

But you have to understand that this is a database and somebody by one of these names could show up later, and if that happens and all three names have been combined into one page then we would need a split later down the line. And I believe splitting a previously merged entry is a Dan only function, so blank pages there shall be.

And for the record I agree that all these credits look like they should be in a new entry for Boya Liang.

Because neither of you (or any other user) has submitted the name Boya Liang. Guess I don't have to leave the credit to the error reporter next time.
