so the title says it all, I have been recently trying to update my list for fun and i noticed I could not find yobi, is it because it is from korea? and if so why should that even matter? it is beyond all doubt anime, shouldn't matter what country it comes from. or am I just not finding it?

Yep. Rarely non-Japanese things end up in the Encyclopedia, but that would be the best assumption for why it isn't in there.

An Encyclopedia Editor would have to deem it necessary to add. Normal users can only submit animes to be accepted, which takes many months-never for it to actually be accepted/rejected.

best to use wikipedia for such things

if the show is on DVD and for sale that is a different issue
there are hundreds of famous non japanese animations in the world such as disney and my little ponies yet they are not in the encyclopedia
interestingly, some of the voice actresses/actors are in the encyclopedia

It it already in the submission queue under another title:
animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/new-anime.php?approve=2146228901

Presumably because it is impossible to submit under "Yobi the Five Tailed Fox (movie)" because that title has already been rejected.

Why don't they add it?
if it's really an issue of it being Korean... why bother having the directors other film: anime#5384

which is also Korean.

Toei Animation worked on it, is my guess.

Because ANN reviewed it twice plus a Shelf Life.

Whenever a reviewer receives a title (Japanese or not) not yet in the Encyclopedia, it is our duty to add information of it. The decision of which title to review is far beyond my jurisdiction.

I'm impressed that this managed to be revived a year to the day after my last post. Had me confused and doubting my memory (more than I usually do) for a second.
