The people who are mad would still be mad and AWL would still probably be whipping up twitter drama because she feels like Eva is her baby. The series has long passed the fandom nostalgia threshold where any alterations or new takes will be received as a mortal offense by a vocal part of the fandom. It's like the people who lash out at Rebuild just because it has the gall to be different from NGE. But then I also feel like the original tv series would benefit greatly if it lost its sacred cow status.
We would have skipped the "my uncle works at Netflix (part time, full time at Nintendo) and told me they are dubbing NGE again" part. They would have explained their reasons (like for starter a better script) and people would have accepted more easily.
And more details is always better imo.
