As I am not a literal "fan", I had been oblivious to the rage found aline, when fans are unhappy about the gender-change of "Andromeda Shun" from a male to female character. Endgadet reported; " The original character was interpreted by many queer people as a gay icon as he presented in a feminine way and was emotionally open and against unnecessary violence."
"The writer of the Netflix series, Eugene Son, said he made the change because the Knights needed more female representation. However, choosing to present this particular character as a woman struck many as a heteronormative move which undermined the queer subtext of the original." (engadget.com)
