I'm not sure this warrant a topic, but I was curious why ANN almost never covers Inazuma Eleven even if there is a series going on currently (Inazuma Eleven Orion no Kokuin). I realize it's not an anime as popular as Boruto or maybe Black Clover which get episode by episode reviews, but in general the coverage looks quite poor.

Is it because Inazuma Eleven is pheraps seen as too childhish? Is there no one on the staff who is interest into it to cover it?

I mean, there are games and it is decently known, it strikes me as odd here on ANN it's very rarely spoken about.

Just curious!

When you say, "No coverage," are you referring to news (and interest), or to editorial (eg: reviews) ?

We've covered Inazuma Eleven regularly in news/interest, so I assume you mean editorial, but I want to check before forwarding this to the right group of people.

I meant reviews/editorial in particular, but in general I saw just a couple of news in the last few months so I was wondering if it was because of not much interest into the series Smile Thanks for looking into it!

We mostlydetermine what series we review largely based on statistical interest from our readers (survey results, page view analytics, number of posts in related forum discussions).

I don't specifically know about Inazuma, but I guess our readers just haven't shown enough interest in it to make it worth covering. Sad

We do make exceptions for shows that we think are extremely interesting, even of only a small % of our readers are interested.

I understand Smile Thank you for the answer! It is more or less what I thought, but was curious to see if that was the case.

I still love ANN, don't worry Very Happy

Yeah, Inazuma Eleven is unfortunately a little too niche even for us, traffic doesn't support our spending money covering it. We had to cancel our Yowamushi Pedal reviews for the same reason, and we don't cover baseball series either. Our audience does not quite seem to care enough about any of them to justify the expenditure.
