Index is also a series very popular in China and brings in lots of money, why alienate a big share of your market when you can just do one simple change that is only very minor. That's not "bending down", that's just being pragmatic.

The reductionist "It's just a flag" take can also be applied in reverse, it's just a flag that at the end of the day is not relevant to Gunha's personality or character and is just an aesthetic choice, hence why it can be removed with no problems at all. "Censorship bad" would move me as an argument if it actually affected the story itself, but it doesn't so I'm not.
