Oh, I forgot to mention manga. I've never held manga in my hands before like 2 years ago. Now they just keep releasing them like crazy, lots and lots of manga. Compared to manga, comicbooks and graphic novels are almost non-existent. Very few graphic novels were released here, and only few major series of the Marvel comicbooks.

It seems like here anime has become as popular as ever in the last few years. It finally came out of the shadow of the Net and black market. Many series and films were released on official DVDs, and most of the video stores have a special Anime section.

A 30-second teaser trailer for actor and voice actor Shun Oguri's directorial debut, Surely Someday is now streaming on the official website. Shogo Muto (Crows Zero) wrote the script for the movie along with Oguri (Gokusen, Hana Yori Dango [2005], Densha Otoko, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa), who added his input based on his own experiences. Yoko Kanno (Macross Frontier, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Escaflowne) is composing the music.

The movie stars Keisuke Koide (Nodame Cantabile, Gokusen), Ryo Katsuji (Battle Royale II: Requiem, Origin ~Spirits of the Past~), Gou Ayano (Kamen Rider 555), Ryohei Suzuki (Mei-chan no Shitsuji), and Tsuyoshi Muro (Yatterman) as members of a high-school band. The band spends all their free time practicing for a festival, but at the last minute the festival is canceled. The band decides to issue a fake bomb threat at the school to reinstate the festival, however, when a real bomb goes off, the members of the band are forced to take responsibility and are kicked out of school. Three years later, the real story behind that incident unfolds as the members of the band try to piece their lives back together.

The movie will hit theaters in Japan on July 17, 2010.

Some of the names and movies/shows mentioned here probably look familiar to regulars to the 2008/2009 threads. While the studio releasing it rarely makes a big BO impact, it certainly has the cast and crew behind it who are responsible for several hits over the past few years (BO and Tv)

Well, it's certainly old enough to be considered "classic" now I suppose. I've never watched the show before.

The live-action adaptation you posted about LadiesMan is schedule for December 2010. I'm not familiar with the director, but the guy in the teaser you posted is Takuya Kimura. He voiced Howl in Howl's Moving Castle and is a member of SMAP, a popular jpop group. They've been around for like 20 years I think.

There's quite a few $100m contenders next year.

Bayside Shakedown 3 is probably a lock. Local films haven't taken a hit over the years, but rather, they have been increasing. So I don't think going from $165m to below $100m is possible. I could even see BS3 doing $150 or more.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will probably hit $100m, but it may not be a lock. As you can see in the lists in the first post, the series has been losing quite a bit of it's audience (HP4 - 11b yen, HP5 - 9.4b yen, HP6 - 8.45b yen). Potter 6 was lucky that the dollar has recovered well, so the audience loss didn't do much and even let it become the biggest in the franchise since HP3 in USD. I don't think it'll lose much of it's audience now though since the only film(s) remaining are the final two. It'll probably remain pretty much the same for Part I, if I had to guess.

Ghibli's Karigurashi no Arrietty has a shot. It's the first Ghibli film not directed by Hayao Miyazaki since 2006, when Tales of Earthsea performed well ($63m), but didn't meet expectations, and received a mixed response in general. Many probably, unfairly, expected it to be as good as a Hayao Miyazaki film since it was directed by his own son. It's likely Karigurashi no Arrietty is met with a more positive response after it opens, so I wouldn't rule out $100m.

Then of course there is most likely another tv drama adaptation I'm unaware of at the moment that is going to do very well. The past few years the genre has been seeing a big growth spurt.

I wouldn't rule out Toy Story 3 either, but doubling Wall-E and Up seems really unlikely.

I dunno how the first two performed in this market.

I would think TS3 could be really big in Britain, though, considering how huge Toy Story 2 was in '99.

It became the most successful animated series in 2008 when the 11th Movie pushed the series over 50b yen ($455m at the time). It's at about 55b yen now (or $500m+).

The only thing that lost it's popularity everywhere but Japan was the anime basically. The video games still sell just as much as they did 10 years ago worldwide, and is still the 2nd best selling video game franchise ever by a wide margin over 3rd place, but will likely never reach Mario for 1st.

"Pokemon the 13th Movie will be released on July 10th, 2010. The series remains as popular as ever in Japan, with the annual films consistently making the Top 10, earning around $50m." - Damn, I just can't get how come it's still so popular. Seems like pokemonomania was so long ago... For several years the crazyness was just huge here, but then suddenly died in the early 2000s. I find it remarkable that it's still so big in Japan after so many years.

The Box Office in Japan isn't weak though. Toho had their biggest year ever in 2008.


BO has been weak for hollywood. We have not had a 50M grosser.

But I was wrong about dollar. At least against yen, it has lost significantly over 6 months. That should help potter for sure.

Great hold for Wall-E. Ratatoullie might be in reach.
Red Cliff continues to hold strong.

HP6 should cross 50M without too much trouble.

The Box Office in Japan isn't weak though. Toho had their biggest year ever in 2008.

With strong dollar I am wondering how low HP6 can go. I am thinking 50M can happen.

Yeah, the downward trend for Hollywood films doesn't look like it's letting up anytime soon. Ratatouille grossed 33M, and doesn't look like Wall-E can beat it.

Recent Pixar in Japan :

Wall-E - Probably something like Lecter projected, though it's hard to say.
Ratatouille - 33M
Cars - 12M (Heh)
The Incredibles - 50M
Finding Nemo - 102M
Monsters Inc - 74M


It's so sad. The Japanese box-office used to be so exciting... :-/
