It was supposed to be released on the 25th. When they come out on a Tuesday, though, it seems quite common for some (but not all) stores to start stocking MF Bunko J/MF Books releases from the previous Friday/Saturday.

Which means (@G_Spark233) that it is pretty much certain that it will be higher next week.

At this point pretty much everyone and their grandma got Kimi no Na Wa novel.

Who else is left to buy it? How is it still charting so much, come on Makoto Shinkai.

Re:Zero sells well in the long run but does so in smaller increments as opposed to having a massive debut. It's probably because Tappei shits these things out so quickly.

12,61*,*** tickets have been sold to see it. How many of those were repeat visits? How many of those were couples or families who would only need one copy of the novel?

Has there been an updated number shipped from the publisher? The Oricon numbers are low of course and the publisher announced month(s?) ago that it had already cracked 1 million for the shousetsu version, right? 2 million for all print versions including spinoffs etc.? Surely that must be at least 4 or 5 million now. An incredible number. And RADWIMPS album has sold so well... everything Kimi no Na Wa touched has turned to gold. Shinkai's earlier movies and novel adaptations selling so well... what a year for him!

I hear Funimation is going to bring out the movie here before Christmas so it qualifies for the Oscars (the special showing premiere in July doesn't count unfortunately, it was in LA but not in a regular commercial theater for a week). I wonder how long until there is an English translation of the novel? In my opinion it should win best picture, not just best foreign or animation but alas I doubt it could crack the top prize for political reasons.

Are there Mitsuha and Taki dakimakura for sale? I never thought to check... I only see T shirts, novels and the RADWIMPS album out so far. A missed opportunity in merchandising for sure.

This must be a slow moment in sales. What is special about this "Kimi No Na Wa"? Its just another romance thing that takes place in school like a lot others right? Or is it just a new thing that will become a fad?

Kimi No Na Wa is a huge hit in Japan 'cause of the recent movie hence why it sells. It doesn't(okay maybe at the start it does) revolve around school tho and it has its "twist". imo it's nothing special but that's probably just my shit taste ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@TheHatredDMC
I disagree, I think it's really special. I've been a fan of Shinkai's work for years and this one is, so far, the culmination of his work, a masterful refinement of his themes. I think it is an spectacular movie based upon an amazing story. I can see why it has sold so many movie tickets and novels so far. I just can't say enough about this one. It made me rethink every other 10 I've ever given out (I do give out way too many 10s but this made me think the rest should all be taken down at least 1 peg).

@Toshizou I'd love a sequel but I think there is 0% chance of one. Either that or it will be a SOL romance spinoff which I'd LOVE to see but it would actually be the opposite of Shinkai's themes so I don't see it happening unless it is done against his will.

Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records will probably get a boost by the time the anime airs as well.

The Kimi no Na wa. novels are doing very well as usual, might get back into the novels again (only having read the first two chapters so far).

I've read that Shinkai is already working on the new movie which should come out in the next 3 years, tho there ain't any news if its a sequel or not (which I doubt)

But I think that much of a success this movie was might backstab him, because of now very high standards made for him. He even told that himself, that he doesn't feel like he deserves such sudden overwhelming response from the audience, and it might even damage his future career...
Hell, it's now on ¥16.41 billion ($159.8 million) and 9th highest grossing movie of all time, and it's not the end, it might reach 6th or even 5th place, it means challenging Princess Mononoke (¥19.30 billion, at the end of November). This is insane, and definitely a two-edged sword for Shinkai...

Success can be a double edged sword though Miyazaki never matched the performance of Spirited Away either but he kept on trying and I hope Shinkai keeps on making more films too, even though it is possible they may never surpass the sales or acclaim of Kimi no Na Wa. I love his movies and hope he keeps exploring his themes.

That was answered above. It was supposed to come out on the 25th but some stores start selling novels early on the weekend so it is not a full week of sales by any means. Will be higher next week.

The thing is, Miyazaki has done many wildly successful movies WAAAAAAAAY before Spirited away came along. He was much more well known and accepted in the society than Shinkai was before Kimi no na wa, even tho he got good response from little audiences before it.

But ye, I also love his movies (I still haven't seen this one, waiting for better quality) and hoping that his appeal and creativity wont stop where they are already.

Shinkai sounds surprised but someone decided to put Kimi no Na Wa out in many theaters. His previous movies had been limited releases but perhaps they should have been more widely shown? Was it just luck that it turned into a hit this time? Or did someone see it and realize that it would be a big hit? I'm not sure but if his next movie is good and is played in many theaters then it too could do well.

I think Byosoku 5cm deserved more acclaim for its stories and Kotonoha no Niwa deserved more mention for it's animation. Kimi no Na Wa brought it all together and eclipsed both of them. I don't think he should have been so surprised by its success but he was likely too close to it to notice how good it was. I look forward to his next movie and novel.

From what i read Toho wanted a successful movie for their Animation department and they contacted Shinkai for that, They were aiming for 2 Billion and even said that the budget was kept pretty low and they were planning to cut the number of theaters before its release so being this big was a surprise for everyone.

I'm trying to check every week! xD
