Lol, I expected that to be higher.

Also, why the high Shin-chan? XD


Why is that? Doraemon, Detective Conan and One Piece are much, much more popular in Japan.

Kind of surprised One Piece wasn't on more screens. It's just as popular as Detective Conan, Doraemon, and Crayon Shin-chan over there.

Those bitching about Haruhi: Those are damn good numbers for a series with a primarily otaku fanbase.

Let's see. I expected Haruhi and UBW to get more. Shame that Bungaku Shoujo, Eve no Jikan and King of Thorn got so little screenings. Also, wth is with One Piece being first?


because one piece is the best

Go Gintama~!

Anyone saying that Haruhi did poorly has absolutely no idea what they're talking about. 830 million yen is bloody fantastic for a series that only had 28 episodes total and isn't even anywhere close to mainstream.

13, *,150,000,000 Higashi no Eden - Movie I: The King of Eden 54scr
14, *,120,000,000 Higashi no Eden - Movie II: Paradise Lost 41scr


Very good. Can't wait to watch movie II

Pokemon (one week) 632,420,000 yen 369scr

Holy crap! While Pokemon is pretty much dead and gone to the rest of the world it sure retains its popularity in Japan.
You're kidding, right?

Pokemon is one of the most popular franchises worldwide.

Pokemon is no where near as popular as it once was outside of Japan.

Eh, the new Pokemon games still sell far more in the West than they do in Japan. The newer anime may not be as popular, but the series is still extremely strong here.

I am not saying Pokemon isn't still popular, I was just emphasizing the popularity of Pokemon in Japan as opposed to outside the country. If the lastest movie was released in theatres overseas hardly anyone would care to see it. I repeat myself - Pokemon is no where near as popular as it once was outside of Japan.

holy mother of Love, onepiece and Gintama .. hell yeah

thats what happenes when the mangaka actually makes the movie..

Jul 26, 2010 2:09 PM by Baka_xD

No surprise that the movies of the popular children's series ranked the highest.
I'm glad the Gintama movie beat the Haruhi one.
I really wish the Hetalia movie would have ranked higher, but I suppose it did pretty good considering the fact that it was only shown in ten theaters and it has a smaller target audience.

Jul 26, 2010 1:51 PM by fdssdfdsfsf

so am i the only one wondering how much money haruhi lost from that awful recording thats on the web...

go Gintama

... I expected the haruhi movie to rank higher ....

Jul 26, 2010 11:45 AM by Duzell

Hmm, MSLN is only ranked 11th.

Jul 26, 2010 11:27 AM by Vizard

GINTAMA FTW!!

Jul 26, 2010 11:10 AM by dinho

One Piece was a pretty obvious one. I'm not surprised. The next 4 are just a joke. Gintama and Haruhi are quality, though. Everything after that doesn't really bother me. I didn't even know the Eve no Jikan movie was released yet, though.

Jul 26, 2010 10:59 AM by _Me_

Only ten screenings of Hetalia...T_T

At least it ranked though! ^^

(now please release it in America! xD)
