I consider Akio Ohtori, as presented in these stories to date, to be a joke as a villain. I can't think of anything that he's done or been responsible for that the "good guys" haven't been able to deal with, usually making him look foolish in the process. He goes to weddings to cause trouble, and to his frustration he gets ignored. He spies on the lives of the Trinity, and that one of them has made it so he can't spy any longer is mentioned almost as an afterthought. If he had a moustache, he'd likely be twirling it as he boasted of his plots and plans to his minions, even though they (the plans and the minions) haven't gotten him anywhere much. He's not done much of anything that I can recall that has had a lasting impact on anything. He's an irritant, yes, but he's not a Big Bad. At least not in my opinion.

(I haven't seen enough of the source material to know if he actually accomplishes anything there either (he apparently didn't with Anthy and Utena), or if he's "just" a sex predator.)
