Ooops… Netflix Reboot of Saunt Seiya Anime Series Changes Gender of Popular Character

Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac

In summer 2019, Netflix will release its remake of the ‘80s- and 2000s-era anime classic Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac, an animated series about five cosmic warriors defending Earth against vengeful Greek gods.

The original Japanese TV program featured a gentle male character named Andromeda Shun. Shun had long green hair, wore magenta armor, was openly emotional and always tried to resolve conflicts without violence, despite being a skilled warrior. As such, some Saint Seiya fans viewed Andromeda Shun as queer or at least a groundbreaking depiction of a male warrior.

However, Netflix’s remake will change Andromeda Shun’s gender to female, upsetting some fans.

Here is a trailer for Netflix’s Saint Seiya: Knights of the Zodiac.
