Default Suggest LGBT changes to characters

Following the announcement to make Anime-Planet more LGBT-friendly for the community, we'd love your help in updating characters for these new tags. Additionally, we're hoping for community input on how to handle gender in the database.

Because of the fill in the Character Database project, which is still underway by the moderators, user submissions are still inaccessible for normal users until we finish. But because of these policy changes we're accepting submissions for LGBT changes here in this thread.

To submit new LGBT characters or update existing characters based on these policies, READ ABOUT THE NEW TAGS/CHANGES first. Afterwards, if there's a character you think needs adding or changing, post them here:
  • If an existing character, post the name and the link to the character

  • REQUIRED: include what data to change, and the specific reasons why. The more specific you are, the more likely we'll be able to moderate it.

  • If there's a new LGBT character that's missing, post info about them here, including which anime/manga they're associated with and any LGBT-specific info

  • Do not post unrelated characters or changes in this thread - only LGBT changes will be handled from here. The normal submission process will return for characters once the mods have completed the first round of the project.

Thanks for your help!

Loving the changes! You've already gotten most of the others that spring to my mind, but I'll keep racking my brain. :)

if so, this might be a spoiler case (guideline still in flux)

mariandale is updated - yuuji seems like a slam dunk based on that image, i just cant remember if it's a spoiler or not (am hoping vern will chime in as iirc he's read the full series)

Someone on the FB page brought up Akito from Air Gear, but I think that's a different situation?

Yuuki Kei is quite late on in S1 - beginning of S2 if memory serves, so you're probably right in thinking that's a spoiler.

However, when Fukunaga Yuuji is originally introduced, she is dressed in women's clothing, wearing a wig etc. The picture and Gender: Male tags you currently have for the character are more of a spoiler than anything!

I can confirm about Fukunaga Yuuji. It's made clear from when she's first introduced. It's not a twist and the manga doesn't try to hide the fact. She's introduced in chapter 7.
