>Demon Slayer: Mugen Train managed to achieve its thirteenth weekend atop the box office, though it did fall to second place in admissions (180,000) over the weekend. The #1 film of all-time achieved the second biggest thirteenth weekend ever, just behind Frozen. And after the holiday Monday, its 88-day total has reached ¥35,790,039,800 ($342.3 million) with 26,210,549 admissions.

>Gintama: The Final wasn't quite able to dethrone Demon Slayer in revenue, but it did open at #1 in terms of admissions. Japan does their weekend rankings by ticket sales, therefore it's been reported as the film that dethroned Demon Slayer. The Final film sold an impressive 204,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 197 screens, and sold an even stronger 384,220 admissions over its four-day (Fri.-Mon) holiday weekend. It will be aiming to reach the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone.

>New Interpretation Records of the Three Kingdoms rounded out the top 3 spots, and is nearing the ¥3.5 billion mark. Expect it to finish with about ¥4 billion (~$40 million). And as of Monday, it has sold an impressive 2.57 million admissions. It is the fourth highest grossing film released in 2020.

>The Promised Neverland broke the ¥1.5 billion mark (¥1.537 billion) on the holiday Monday. It still has a chance of reaching ¥2 billion, but could fall a bit shy. Either way, this was a pretty successful release, as it managed to outgross many other live-action Shonen releases.

>Sailor Moon Eternal - Part 1 doesn't look like it did well, but I don't really think it was meant to be a major box office success. It was barely a wide release, and performed similarly to limited or barely wide older anime releases, such as the Digimon Tri films, Gundam films, and Space Battleship Yamato films.

>Stand By Me, Doraemon 2 is not going to reach the ¥3 billion milestone, which will make it the first Doraemon film to miss the mark since 2011. Not going to try to spin this into some successful performance, it's not. However, every single film targeting a younger audience has disappointed since COVID, so it's not the film itself. Simply put, this isn't a good time to release younger skewing films like Doraemon, Pokemon, Crayon Shin-chan, etc., but since these are annual franchises, delaying them for too long isn't really an option since they'll run into the next release.

With this opening do you see Gintama crossing New Interpretation movie Corpse? Seems difficult with the current situation.

No, no. That was never a target or anything. It will be aiming for ¥2 billion, which would be great.

The first Gintama animated movie grossed ¥1.07 billion. The Final earned half of that just over its first four days, and could end up grossing close to double. It didn't match the openings of the two live-action films, nor will it outgross them, but they were given a much wide release and the live-action novelty helped them out.

The opening might look average, but it's pretty impressive. Shonen (or Weekly Shonen Jump in particular) films tend to only appeal to the fanbase of the same manga/anime series, and hardly anyone else, so they have a limited audience that will turn out. As far as all the animated WSJ films go, this opening is good, and either on par with or better than a lot of other more popular series'.

I'll work on a Weekly Shonen Jump Box Office History list at some point this week. I'll begin it by ONLY including the animated films based on WSJ titles, and then expand it or either add a separate live-action section afterwards.

Not calling Jujutsu Kaisen the Demon Slayer "successor", but I believe this is the second biggest sales increase a series has ever had behind only Demon Slayer. Nothing is going to replicate what Demon Slayer did, and continues to do still, but Jujutsu Kaisen is one to watch as this boost is, as I said, is greater than anything else prior to Demon Slayer (or maybe Attack on Titan) in Oricon's history.


You're totally right, I posted this a few weeks ago :

Peak weekly sales for a volume #01 during an anime run (link : https://tieba.baidu.com/p/7166908063?pi ... 7189204320)

01. Demon Slayer #01 : 183 035
02. Jujutsu kaisen #01 : 90 204
03. Attack on Titan#01 : 72 450
04. The seven deadly sins #01 : 51 474
05. Blue exorcist #01 : 39 837

06. Magi #01 : 33 996
07. The heroic legend of arslan #01 : 32 265
08. Assassination classroom #01 : 30 190
09. One punch man #01 : 29 932
10. Cells at work #01 : 28 001

11. Haikyu!! #01 : 27 865
12. Gekkan shojo Nozaki-kun #01 : 27 670
13. Yokai watch #01 : 26 657
14. K-ON! #01 : 26 547
15. My hero academia #01 : 25 905

16. Space brothers #01 : 25 627
17. Tokyo ghoul #01 : 25 545
18. School-Live! #01 : 25 309
19. Erased #01 : 22 855
20. Kekkai sensen #01 : 22 852

21. Dagashi Kashi #01 : 21 694
22. Hozuki no reitetsu #01 : 20 495
23. Inu × Boku SS #01 : 19 698
24. The promised neverland #01 : 19 509

Technically, this isn't an anime run but we can add :
- Chainsaw-man #01 which sold 33 124 this last week.
- Spy×Family #01 which sold 28 287 this last week.

The two biggest weekly boost in Oricon's history are running together, and now, we even have some manga without anime having boosts on par with the best anime runs.

For the biggest yearly sales boost, excluding Demon Slayer, the record to beat is Attack on Titan #01 which sold almost 1 300 000 in 2013, the year season #01 aired.


And now Jujutsu Kaisen has exceeded 20 million copies in circulation. Just announced today by Shueisha, so expect a huge week in sales for the series with Vol. 14's debut (really curious on this one) and the backlog likely being restocked again. Here is its reported circulation number timeline:

600,000 - Dec. 2018
1.1 million - Feb. 2019
2.0 million - June 2019
2.5 million - Nov. 2019
4.5 million - May 2020
6.8 million - Sept. 2020
10.0 million - Oct. 2020
15.0 million - Dec. 2020
20.0 million - Jan. 2021

This is a major exponential increase in sales. Over 15 million in just 8 months (May 2020-Jan. 2021), and 13.2 million in just 4 months (Sept. 2020-Jan. 2021). And a 5 million month (Dec. 2020-Jan. 2021) might only be the second time a manga has achieved this since Oricon's sales chart began. Unless One Piece achieved some 5 million months back in 2009-2012, Demon Slayer is the only other series to have achieved this feat to my knowledge.

It's very reminiscent of what started to happen with Demon Slayer in late-2019.

Well, while at least Gintama is in peace here, in other sites, mostly MAL, it's a war zone right now lmao
I still have hope that Gintama will cross more than that *thinking positive*

Jujutsu Kaisen sold 671,651 units last week.

Considering there is only one other volume on top of volume 14 in the Shoseki top 500 (vol. 13 at #443), most of these sales probably belong to the newly released volume 14.
New stock should only arrive this week (so for next week's ranking)

Jujutsu Kaisen is likely to enter the top 10 manga with the highest first weeks.

01./ Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba #23 - 3,431,296 {November 30 – December 6, 2020}*
02./ One Piece #62 - 2,367,582 {May 2 – May 8, 2011}**
03./ Attack on Titan #13 - 1,400,780 {April 7 – April 13, 2014}*
04./ Fullmetal Alchemist #27 - 1,015,164 {22 November – 28 November, 2010}**
05./ Hunter x Hunter #34 - 876,566 {June 26 – July 2, 2017}**
06./ Naruto #72 - 874,120 {February 2 – February 8, 2015}
07./ Nodame Cantabile #22 - 788,488 {August 10 – August 16, 2009}***
08./ Nana #19 - 787,219 {May 12 – May 18, 2008}
09./ Kimi ni Todoke : From Me to You #14 - 714,858 {September 12 – September 18, 2011}
10./ Bleach #37 - 607,616 {February 2 – February 8, 2009}

Shueisha is struggling with the reprints a lot lately. And in Jujutsu's case, doesn't seem they were able to give Vol. 14 a significant first print run (crazy that it's moved 5 million in a month despite this).

But this is good news, as it's an indication of strong sales for the industry.

The State of Emergency is going to expand to 7 more prefectures, so more theaters will be closing early at 8PM each day while also resuming 50% capacity. The 50% capacity isn't much of a concern for the box office, but the last showings beginning at 5/6PM in order to finish before 8PM will continue to deflate the numbers while in effect since students and working people don't really have a chance to go during the weekdays with this measure.

The measures are currently in place until Feb. 7th.

Yeah I've read that the Midnight premiere of Evangelion was cancelled.

Let's hope that even with the 50% capacity the movie can perform well.
Last year From Today, It's My Turn!! proved it is possible after all.

Yeah. The 50% capacity isn't much of a negative factor. Lots of films last Summer did perfectly well with it in effect.

It's the 8PM early closing that's the issue since it eliminates all showings after 6PM. Evangelion's midnights were canceled due to this, as you mentioned. I don't think they're going to delay the film, but I would understand if they do. It's one of those rare films in the market that's dependent on the first day or two worth of business. And most of its audience would normally come out in the evening and night, but they won't be able to do that now. We'll see. If it's delayed, it shouldn't be very long this time.

I don't think any product in the near future (like Jujutsu Kaisen) will surpass Demon Slayer.

But in box office business, never say never. There might be a new pandemic that let Jujutsu Kaisen the movie be the only movie in the cinema for a whole year.

Honestly, hoping for a new pandemic just for a new movie to surpass the new number 1 is pretty mess up lmao
And for that to happen, that's basically hoping for another pandemic in 3-5 years range which sucks for a lot of people xD

JjK has sold 12M~ right now I guess and with the reprint will sell millions of copies for the next weeks ! I wonder if it can becomes the second best seller in term of ratio copies/volume... now that One Piece is more like 2M/volume. For 2021 Kimetsu should stay at the top but for 2022 the "battle" will be very exciting. ^^
But seriously... KnY is just a incredible ! Manga, movie, light novel, music... It was in all top and mostly at the 1st rank. Still curious about video-games now.

Edit :
JjK #14 sold 637 000 copies. And here the start of each volumes...

There are lots of factors (external and internal) contributing in the movie box office success tho, pandemic alone can make more people stay at home rather than go to cinema.

Is KnY game gonna be gacha based?
Since popular titles like FGO, AK, AL, PCRD, GI, HI3, etch. are all popular because they are gacha.
And being a gacha, they can milk out more money from their fans lol

That decision is because of the restrictions. This series is heavily dependent on opening day audience and specially evening shows.

It's the best decision. I haven't read of any others films being delayed between now and Feb. 7th (restrictions in place until then, currently), but Evangelion is just one of those films that will be too negatively impacted by theaters closing at 8PM in the busiest prefectures.

And assuming the restrictions are lifted on Feb. 7th, I expect they'll announce the new date for early Spring, possibly as early as mid/late-February, not several months away or anything.

But this movie is certainly going down in history as one of the unluckiest productions of all time. Remember, it was supposed to come out a year after 3.0, meaning a 2012 release date was originally planned. Then that was scrapped, and it's had various release frames (even landing actual dates over the past year) over the last 9 years.
