Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
I'd give Weathering With You a 50/50 shot of surpassing Avatar and entering the All-Time Top 10. We'll likely known once we see how it performs in the first week of September. Many summer releases either collapse or see sharp declines then, so we can get a better idea of where it may be headed.

I don't know too much about Yaguchi Shinobu, but looking at this filmography, I'd probably consider him more of a niche directer as you suggested. Waterboys was very popular critically, receiving 8 Japan Academy Award Nominations (winning 2) in 2001, but it wasn't a notable success at the box-office.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
Thanks for all the hard work, Corpse!

Very impressive showing by Weathering With You so far. Any chance that it will surpass the lifetime gross of Avatar in Japan?

Also, I'm a really big fan of Yaguchi Shinobu movies, so I'm disappointed by the earnings of Dance With Me. Is the lack of any recognizable names responsible for its poor performance this week? Wood Job had Sometani Shota, Nagasawa Masami, and Ito Hideaki, while Survival Family had Fukatsu Eri. Or is Yaguchi considered to really only make niche films? (I do remember that Waterboys and Swing Girls were very popular). Dance With Me is among the few Japanese movies I'm actually looking forward to seeing this year.

I wish people would support the smaller films more these days and not find themselves in the cinemas only when there's a Disney-Marvel-Pixar-Universal blockbuster on the screens.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
It's a bit late to post a Weekend Forecast, so I'll go ahead and post the daily estimate for this weekend instead. Saturday and Sunday will likely come in below any of the weekdays, but that's normal coming off of a major holiday week.

Holds are still looking to be very good (One Piece aside, of course), probably mostly sub-20/25% or even better for most films. The Lion King should rise to the #1 spot, but Weathering With You will make it a close battle and could reclaim the top spot itself in its sixth-weekend of release.

It was the former for a few years before being updated to the latter at some point. My guess is that it received a re-release, but that would have been a pretty lousy re-release. ¥25.50 billion is the official total now though, I just haven't updated it yet.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
Yeah. The first post of this thread has been needing updated for a few years now.

I'll update it at some point over the weekend, but rather than listing the Top 10 of each year like it currently displayed, I'm going to expand it tremendously by including every film that earned more than ¥1 billion (which usually results in a Top 50/60 or so).

It's in Japanese. I'm also pretty sure Coprse has a list of his own.

Top movie made 30.8 billion Japanese Yen.

Toy Story 4 is aiming for Day 50 or so, but I don't want to list it yet since it's still a couple weeks away and things could change.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
And that pretty much concludes Obon Festival 2019. This upcoming weekend will probably see some very good holds, but I don't expect any increases at the moment since the holiday frame largely fell over the weekdays this year.

Regarding One Piece Stampede's near 50% drop versus last Friday, don't be alarmed. I'd actually consider it decent. It's a very frontloaded film franchise, and its opening day was its biggest day of the week (and biggest Friday of the year). It'll probably see a second weekend decline over 40%, and perhaps near 50% as well.

The Lion King managing a Friday-to-Friday increase is very notable though, even if it was a pretty small increase. We'll have to see how it behaves after this upcoming weekend, but the Friday increase is a good sign of a potential long performance. I'd like to provide a projected total it could be aiming for, but it's still too early to give a reliable prediction.

Weathering With You just couldn't quite reclaim the #1 spot over the week, but it's not like it needed to. It had the strongest Obon bump among all the films in the Top 10, as you can see from its percentage increases each day, and will be close to the ¥10 billion milestone after Sunday. Depending on the actual numbers, it'll either exceed the ¥10 billion mark on Monday or Tuesday, its 32nd or 33rd day in release. I'll have the Fastest to ¥10 billion list up soon for comparisons. ¥15 billion+ has become increasingly likely to happen.

Toy Story 4 enjoyed a good Obon boost, but not strong enough to convince me that it's a 100% lock to outgross Finding Nemo to become Pixar's highest-grossing film in the market. It's still very likely, but it's probably going to stall out around that ¥11 billion mark it needs to exceed to beat Nemo. And it's very unlikely to beat Aladdin now, which is going to finish a bit above ¥12 billion.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
I sort of am. It was going to begin making more than One Piece on a daily basis (overtaking it in dailies on Tuesday was expected), but I was expecting Weathering With You to take back the #1 spot on Wednesday. But The Lion King enjoyed a very nice increase on Wednesday, indicating it may actually have a solid female appeal.

And this is why I said not to take its second place debut, and noticeably lower opening than other Disney live-action remakes, as a sign of it disappointing (relatively). It managed a Fri.-to-Fri. increase today, which is yet another indicator that it's connecting with audiences.

One Piece is my fav anime/manga too :yes:. I've been reading and watching it since 2010.

I'm kinda hoping that word of mouth would help stampede, and hopefully it surpasses film gold. Film Gold underperformed box office wise when you consider the promotion for it, and how it opened with over 700 theaters. Toei was really overestimating it. They were expecting over 6 billion yen and they only did a little over 5 billion yen.

The new direction and the art for Wano is amazing. Its amazing how a change in director can do so much. Tatsuya nagamine is the same director for Film z and heart of gold, and now he is responsible for the whole Wano arc. A lot of manga readers that dropped the anime have been watching the anime weekly too, its amazing.

To be fair the anime schedule and production have been in constant improvement since the Zou arc. Whole cake island was really good as a whole. The art and animation was consistent, it only suffered during Cracker vs Luffy fight due to episode of east blue production. The best animated arc post time skip for sure. Luffy vs katakuri, luffy vs Sanji. End of the arc episode 877 was one of the best episodes in the series, the music and direction was amazing and it really showcased how a powerful a yonkou can be.I actually marathoned the entirety of whole cake island in one ago, and it really surprised me.

Same. :thumbsup: One Piece is easily my favorite manga/anime. The one and only tattoo I'll ever get is the "X" (Alabasta) on my left arm.

Yeah, the fan reception appears better for Stampede than for Gold. I don't want to be spoiled, but it certainly seems to be a film dedicated to the fans, serving as more of a celebratory release. I'm curious about just how many characters actually show up in the film. I've heard it's loaded with past characters. Regarding WOM, since this is a very heavily driven fanbase film, WOM won't really have much of an impact. However, it could help with some repeat viewings among the fans.

Digital sales have gained a lot of traction in the past couple of years. Unfortunately, they're not tracked currently, so we still have to rely upon the physical sales reports. Sales did gradually decline after seeing new heights from 2009-2011, but if a volume is still managing to exceed 2 million in physical sales (versus the 2.5 million+ from three, four+ years ago), I believe it's safe to assume overall sales are probably remaining stable given the rise of the digital market.

What do you think of the anime's new art direction going forward with the Wano Arc? It''s received universal acclaim, especially after the mostly average animation from around Dressrosa (episode 600+) through Whole Cake Island (episode 891). That was nearly 300 episodes consisting largely of average/rushed quality with sparse great animation (typically reserved for just major fights). Wano's art/animation change has gotten me back into watching the anime again on a weekly basis rather than waiting a month or two before catching back up.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
I'm huge one piece fan, and what I've seeing from Japanese twitter seems they are like it way more than film gold, I don't know if that will have any impact on its numbers in the long run due to word of mouth.

if you notice manga sales numbers it has been decreasing a lot and now it stabilizes at 2 million before it drops out of the chart. It used to do over 2.5 million before it drops out. I was worried that it would have an impact on the movie numbers, but it seems its doing fine so far, still a huge franchise over there. A lot of Japanese people have been buying manga digitally, Im sure that would explain the decline.

Thanks for the insight

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Obon Festival 2019
It's just impossible to make any accurate comparisons between it and Gold, Z, or Strong World. The release dates are just too different.

Not only was Stampede the first One Piece film to open on a Friday, it also opened right at the start of Obon Festival, so it's been doing big numbers every day since it opened, as you can see above. So, given this, it's of course outpacing every One Piece film (even Z) right now.

I think it's performing very well, and I am actually a little surprised it hasn't begun to slow down much yet. Even if Wednesday was Ladies' Day, it's still an encouraging sign that it saw an increase from Tuesday given the frontloaded nature of the franchise. I ran some rough numbers that resulted it in finishing very close to ¥5 billion, with the presumption that it'd see large declines post the holidays. Strong World grossed ¥4.8 billion; Gold grossed ¥5.18 billion. So, I ultimately believe it'll finish very closely to its predecessors, which should be expected considering the long established and loyal fanbase.

Also, Z did noticeably more (¥6.87 billion), I believe, because of the hype surrounding the manga/anime having entered the New World (second-half of the story), and with it being the first film set in the New World.

And if you're a One Piece fan, and to anyone reading who is, I just wanted to mention that with the release of Volume 93 last month (which broke 2 million copies in sales this past week), the One Piece manga exceeded 454 million copies in print. It's close to overtaking Batman to become the second best selling comic series of all-time, according to the article I read. The manga still sells ~10 million copies every year, so 500 million+ seems guaranteed before it reaches its conclusion.

Welcome to the forum, by the way.

Hello Corpse. I've been following this thread for al long time now. You do such an incredible job covering Japan box office, and I really appreciate your work and insight.

I've seen some people say stampede is doing better than gold overall, but isn't that due to the holidays...? what do you think of its performance so far?

Thanks
