How to edit virtual Artists

No adding folders for those artists will not help. Kodi takes music library information from the tag internal to the music files, not the folder structure you happen to use.

You have tagged that soundtrack album using musicbrainz id tags, so I assume that the tagging software (Picard?) has included tags for the song artist name in Japenese and mbid. Kodi scans these tags and adds those artists to your library.

The lack of display may well be a limitation of the skin, but to be honest I am not sure if Hiragana display in Estuary either. Anyway you seem to want these names in latin script.

The only way to edit the artists names is to use tagging software to edit the ARTIST and ARTISTS tags in the music files. It may be possible to get Picard to give those artist tags in latin characters rather than Hiragana straight from Musicbrainz, otherwise you will have to do so manually taking care that you keeps the names (if more than one) in the same order as the mbid tags - these need to match up.

On the other hand perhaps you just don't want to see song artists, you can disable the "Show song and album artist" setting and reduce the number of artists that are displayed in the artist node.

At the moment Kodi can only scrape artist.nfo files and artwork for artists that have all their music under one unique folder - albums with muitiple album artists, or artists only on songs on albums by other artists or compilations can not succesfully be scraped from NFO. If they have an mbid, from tags, then artist info often can be scraped from online sources, and this could be used to overwrite the tag derrived name.
