According to Eiga.com, the box office of the first two days of One Piece: Strong World was 1 billion and 38 million yen ($11.8 million), which exceeded that of Gake no Ue no Ponyo ($11.6 million). The One Piece movie was premiered on 188 screens and Ponyo was shown on 481 screens. The average income per screen established the Japanese record.

Toei Film announced that they will additionally print 1 million copies of the "volume 0" of One Piece manga book, which is a giveaway for the audience.

This is probably an indication that One Piece is setting the bar for series related anime movies.

Bleach and Naruto will no longer be able to cope.

But I'm hoping that Haruhi tries to at least compete with this, and I'm looking forward to seeing this movie.

Excuse me, but One Piece is 10 times better than any other shounen running on Jump right now.

I heard Ponyo was a bit weak so I'm not suprised.

One Piece is the best, but never expected the movie would be this big. Maybe they'll bring it to the big screen in the U.S. Hopefully!

Bleach and Naruto are worse. One Piece's story at least make sense.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

That just to show how awesome One Piece is. I would hate waiting on that line though.

These news don't make me happy like everyone else... I mean, I don't care how popular One Piece is in JAPAN... I live in AMERICA so why would I care about how it's doing in JAPAN =( I'm like the only One Piece fan at my school -__- I wish One Piece was at least somewhat popular in America. Luffy rocks

^ I noticed.

Finally, some movie that actually 'develops' the original story of one piece. Brilliant.

Living and teaching at junior high schools in Japan now I find it surprising that this news is surprising. One Piece is without a doubt this generation of J-kids' (and many, many adults') Dragonball!

It's not surprising since One Piece has a whole slew of other movies and a series to boot. Ponyo is one movie with no series to its name and so no followers unlike One Piece.

Since I haven't gone into One Piece yet (On Hold), the movie doesn't hold as much interest to me. It looks good though, from the 5 or so episodes I've watched.

This just goes to show you the awesomeness of One Piece. I mean if they've been in the top 3 in Japan for the past 10 years then that has to say something.

ONE PIECE FTFW!!!!! ^_^

Hrmm, I would say the MANGA is that popular, cuz I kno lots of Japs who read it but don't watch the show. So it's likely most manga fans went to see it just to get Volume 0.

And at least that guy said "japs", and not "nips". I hate being called a nip, it just sounds so wrong...

I hope this sticks it to Ghibli. It's showing them that we aren't going to shit bricks and praise them for every fucking film they make. I really want to watch this, but I'm not caught up with the show.
