This manga is great for its detail of board-games and the twists that they hold, as well as effectively introducing these board games by the their most enjoyable attribute! I'll call it their Kime-te. :)

why only moe crap becomes anime??why they never adapt the works that are serealized on Big comic original instead of moe??


More than 85% of the big comic orignal readership is over 30 years old,most of them are not interested in anime,and how the guy above already pointed out,the works there mostly get adapted into live action films or Jdramas.

The public that read manga and watch anime are completelly different from each other in japan,so is not worth it.

Did you forget the time when two-thirds of the anime were harems, incestuous stories or fighting shonen? Now the main trends is moe, idols and isekai, so every studio is trying to get at least 1-2 perspective franchise in these directions to catch the trend. It does not matter that some title is too young, has little potential or not very high quality, if its theme is trendy, then it makes it a good choice for adaptation.

For example, P.A.Works has Uma Musume, TROYCA has IDOLISH7, and A-1 Pictures (if I'm not mistaken) has been processing IDOLM@STER for a long time. This is a common phenomenon for the media business and it will definitely be repeated the next time these genres will be replaced by new trends.
