I believe it's seeing the increases this week due to it losing theaters at a gradual pace now, causing the last bit of people interested in seeing in theaters (whether as a repeat or for the first time) to come out. It's down to 177 locations now, and after next week when more theaters are scheduled to lose it (04/25), it'll likely be under 100 by the end of the month.

Going into this upcoming weekend, it's still losing a lot of seating/showtimes, and will probably be out of the Top 25 widest releases in terms of seating/showtimes next week.

No weekend figure was available for it last weekend, but its total as of last Sunday is now ¥12.86 billion ($115.4 million), up ~¥30 million (~$250,000) from the previous week. It overtook Jurassic Park to become the 16th Highest-Grossing Film of All-Time in Japan.

And I misspoke about last year's Detective Conan being the #1 film of 2018 if not for Bohemian Rhapsody breaking out. Code Blue would have been #1. Code Blue's performance at the box-office, in an era where domestic live-action films rarely find blockbuster success, was significant.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire is easily going to hold onto its #1 spot, and it's likely to deliver a humongous second weekend. The weekend forecast above would set a new franchise record, along with a new two-week total franchise record. It would also achieve the fifth biggest second weekend of the decade, and the fourth biggest second weekend ever for an animated film.

Besides Detective Conan, the weekend is seeing a wave of new openers that are all likely to perform well:

>Kingdom, the first live-action adaptation of the very popular manga series, will come in second place. It delivered a good start on Friday, and while I don't think it'll quite get there, it has the potential to hit ¥500 million over the weekend. A debut on this level is good any time of the year, but it's particularly good for this time of year, just two weeks before Golden Week (and this year's is the longest ever), since legs are typically strong. A ¥3/4 billion (~$30/35 million) total would be doable.

>Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane, The Lost Hiroshi, the twenty-seventh film in the long-running animated franchise, will debut in third place. Pre-sales suggest it'll come in 15-20% below last year's film, but anything above ¥300 million is a bit above average for the franchise.

>Shazam! will have to settle for fourth place, and if any opener is to be considered a "disappointment" this weekend, it'll be this one. It had a bit of a rough start yesterday, and pre-sales today suggest it'll have one of the weakest debuts among all Marvel/DC films. That said... I wouldn't necessarily consider this as poor given the difficulty to market this one to Japanese audiences.

Any chance The Fist of Blue Sapphire will be the breakthrough for Detective Conan franchise? It has Makoto Kyogoku which is my most favorite character.


Breakthrough? The movie franchise was successful basically as soon as it launched, and the last three films have all exceeded the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone. Last year's even approached ¥10 billion, and was only the third film in the last ten years to open with 1 million+ admissions...

I mean compare to movies within its own franchise. Just like how Broly is consider a breakthrough for Dragon Ball movies.

To think about it objectively
Primary objective 1: Biggest opening weekend amongs Conan's films 2. Most domestic total among Conan's films
Secondary objective: Most WW boxoffice total among Conan's films


I'd still say it's already happened. 2016's The Darkest Nightmare opened well above the franchise average, and was the first broke ¥1 billion on opening weekend. It then became the first film in the franchise to achieve blockbuster status by exceeding ¥5 billion. Since it though, the last two films have achieve even greater heights.


What's more impressive between Darkest Nightmare jump over average franchise opening and Sapphire jump over Zero Enforcer opening? Both are breakthrough but which one is the biggest breakthrough for this franchise yet.

I'd still go with The Darkest Nightmare. However, if The First of Blue Sapphire goes on to reach the ¥10 billion milestone (unlikely), I'd go with it.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire delivers the massive second weekend that was expected going into the weekend. If the estimate holds, it's a new franchise record for second weekends and two-week totals, and the fourth biggest second weekend ever for an animated film.

>Kingdom performed very well in second place, and appears to have come in above ¥500 million over the weekend frame. This debut should easily result in a total north of ¥3 billion ($25-30 million), and a ¥4 billion ($35 million+) total is possible this time of year as well. Definitely a nice result.

>Crayon Shin-chan and Shazam! open within expectations.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire easily holds onto its #1 spot, and delivered a monstrous second weekend in the process. Selling a further 678,000 admissions in its sophomore frame, it set a new franchise second weekend record and new two-week total record. Its second weekend also allowed it to achieve the fifth biggest second weekend of the decade, and the fourth biggest second weekend ever for an animated film. The likelihood of exceeding ¥8 billion ($70 million+) is very good now, and it could certainly reach ¥9 billion ($80 million).

>Kingdom, the first live-action adaptation of the very popular manga series, debuts strong in second place, selling 382,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 388 screens, and sold 506,861 admissions since opening on Friday. This is a great start, and it should be able to reach a total around ¥3.5/4 billion ($30-35 million).

>Crayon Shin-chan: Honeymoon Hurricane, The Lost Hiroshi, the twenty-seventh film in the long-running animated franchise, came in third place over the weekend selling 242,000 admissions on 356 screens, and sold 263,544 admissions since opening on Friday. This is a 21% decline compared to last year's film, but the debut is still on par with the franchise norm. Expect a finish above ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million).

>Shazam! settles for a fourth place debut, selling 115,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 723 screens, and sold 152,807 admissions since opening on Friday. This is one of the worst opening for a Marvel/DC film in the market, but as I said on Friday, this film would have been a difficult sell to Japanese audiences, so it really couldn't have performed much better. I think it did just fine.

>Sound! Euphonium the Movie: Finale Oath hasn't had its weekend numbers released yet, so those above remain estimates.

>Dumbo was unable to recover from its borderline bomb debut two-weeks ago, and it can definitely be declared a bomb now since it's not going to reach the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone. Very disappointing result for Disney, but maybe even more so for Tim Burton in the market.

>Green Book became the highest-grossing Academy Award Best Picture Winner of the decade, surpassing The King's Speech in its eighth-weekend of release. It'll be a slow, slow crawl, but I bet Gaga keeps it playing long enough to reach the ¥2 billion milestone.

>Bohemian Rhapsody experienced a sharp decline (~60%) down the charts, coming in around 20th place, but has brought its total up to ¥12.93 billion ($115.9 million) on 9.33 million admissions.

Maybe. It just depends on whether or not Fox wants it to reach that milestone now, I believe.

It'll have a strong opening, probably the biggest in the series, but it won't come close to any sort of opening weekend records. It would need to more than double its predecessor's opening to take the April Opening Weekend Record, and more than triple it to be in contention for any all-time opening weekend records.

A reminder about the unprecedented event that's about to occur in Japan:

The traditional Golden Week Holiday frame will begin on April 29th (Showa Day), as it always has, and will be followed with other national holidays on May 3rd (Constitution Day), May 4th (Greenery Day), and May 5th (Children's Day). Golden Week happens every year, to the surprise of no one who follows this thread, and is one of the three biggest weeks at the box-office along with New Year in January and Obon Festival in August.

However, this year's Golden Week Holiday frame is being expanded. On April 30th, Emperor Akihito is abdicating the chrysanthemum throne, and Crown Prince Naruhito will ascend the throne on May 1st. As a result of this, May 1st (typically not a holiday) will be a national holiday this year. And due to May 1st becoming a national holiday, April 30th and May 2nd (typically not holidays) also become national holidays because a day between two national holidays is then declared a holiday itself. And finally, May 6th (typically not a holiday) also becomes a national holiday because May 5th (a national holiday) falls on a Sunday, and when a holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is declared a holiday!

So, this year's Golden Week is basically from April 27th (accounting for the weekend) through May 6th with NO regular days. This means there will be an unprecedented 10-day period, a consecutive 8-day holiday frame, where all schools and most workplaces are closed. New Year and Obon Festival, and a normal Golden Week, are all week-long holiday frames, however, each of them have regular days within that week where either school or workplaces are open.

Here is a look at each day coming up:

April 27th - Weekend
April 28th - Weekend
April 29th - Showa Day (National Holiday)
April 30th - Declared National Holiday (falls between holidays)
May 1st - National Holiday (New Emperor, Reiwa Era Begins)
May 2nd - Declared National Holiday (falls between holidays)
May 3rd - Constitution Day (National Holiday)
May 4th - Greenery Day (National Holiday)
May 5th - Children's Day (National Holiday)
May 6th - Declared National Holiday (Monday after a holiday)

We won't see any official box-office numbers during this entire period, and probably won't get them until May 7th/8th. I'll be posting daily estimates along the way.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: End of an Era in Japan
The Guardian has an informative article about Emperor Akihito's legacy and his upcoming abdication:

End of an era in Japan as emperor prepares to abdicate

Emperor Akihito will become first Japanese monarch to abdicate in more than 200 years

The imperial palace grounds in central Tokyo are bathed in spring sunshine. Joggers completing circuits of the moat artfully dodge groups of foreign tourists. Office workers tuck into lunches of onigiri rice balls and tea.

On the other side of the moat, hidden behind lines of trees, the palace is preparing for a historical transition. Early in the evening of 30 April, Emperor Akihito will enter the building’s state room and, in the presence of the grand chamberlain, the prime minister and other senior politicians, become the first Japanese monarch to abdicate in more than 200 years.

At the end of a ceremony lasting just 10 minutes and steeped in the rituals of Shintoism, Japan’s indigenous religion, the Heisei era, which began with Akihito’s succession in January 1989, will come to an abrupt end.

Late the following morning, his eldest son, Naruhito, will enter the same room and inherit a sword, a jewel and a mirror – three “sacred treasures” said to have been bequeathed to the imperial line by the mythical sun goddess Amaterasu, and which serve as proof of his accession to the throne. In keeping with their mythological status, the regalia will remain hidden in boxes even when they are handed to the new emperor.

Shortly after, dressed in multiple layers of silk robes and a black headdress, the 126th occupant of the chrysanthemum throne will read a short statement setting the tone for his reign. The prime minister, Shinzō Abe, will welcome his accession on behalf of the Japanese people.

And so, over two simple ceremonies devoid of the public pageantry associated with western monarchies, the era of Reiwa – or beautiful harmony – will commence. Japan, though, will have to wait until the autumn to see its new Oxford-educated emperor being driven through the streets of Tokyo with the empress, Masako, in an open-top limousine.

There will be none of the sombre restraint that marked the death of Japan’s wartime emperor, Hirohito, and the start of the Heisei era three decades ago.

“There are various views on the merits of the emperor system, but the consensus seems to be to put any opposition to one side and receive the new emperor positively,” said Eiichi Miyashiro, an imperial family historian and senior staff writer for the Asahi Shimbun newspaper. “The last time we had a new emperor was because his father had died. But no one has died this time, so it’s perfectly fine for the Japanese people to celebrate.”

But they are also taking stock of Akihito’s 30-year reign, a time of economic uncertainty, demographic upheaval and a failure to come to terms with the legacy of the second world war.

Tessa Morris-Suzuki, professor emerita of Japanese history at the Australian National University, said Akihito would be remembered for his carefully choreographed attempts to heal the historical scars left by Japanese militarism in China and on the Korean peninsula in the name of his father.

“This reflects the fact that he grew up in the shadow of the war,” said Morris-Suzuki, adding that Akihito’s childhood tutor, Elizabeth Gray Vining, an American Quaker, left a lasting impression on the then crown prince.

Akihito’s reign was still in its infancy when he became the first Japanese monarch in modern times to visit China. Accompanied by Empress Michiko – a non-royal whom he met on a tennis court – his visit was opposed by rightwingers in Japan, while Chinese people demanded an apology for Japanese atrocities before and during the war.

Instead, Akihito navigated the potential diplomatic minefield while adhering to a postwar constitutional ban on any involvement in politics. He told his hosts that Japan had “inflicted great suffering on the people of China”, adding, “I deeply deplore this.” Two years earlier, he delivered a similar message in Tokyo to the then South Korean president, Roh Tae-woo, over Japan’s 1910-45 colonisation of the Korean peninsula.

Those remarks set the tone for the rest of his reign, with reconciliation at the heart of the imperial couple’s visits to theatres of the Pacific war: Okinawa, Saipan, Peleliu island in Palau and, as recently as 2016, the Philippines.

“Akihito’s visits to former battlegrounds and his comments about the war made a difference, though only a smallish one, as he was inevitably constrained by the constitutional limits of his position,” said Morris-Suzuki.

“I also think that he will be remembered for the way in which he did everything he could, again within the confines of his position, to defend the postwar constitution.”

While Hirohito’s wartime role continue to divide Japanese three decades after his death, his son “sought to turn a new page by atoning for the past deeds of the Japanese empire, while also groping for a new role as the emperor”, said Koichi Nakano, a political science professor at Sophia University in Tokyo.

“As Japan’s politics shifted to the right after the end of the cold war, Akihito ended up becoming an unlikely liberal, pacifist voice and a committed defender of postwar values. In that sense he partially healed the historical wounds caused by the war.”

The postwar constitution bans Japan from using force to settle disputes and stripped Hirohito and all future Japanese emperors of their divine status, proclaiming them “the symbol of the state and the unity of the people”.

“The Heisei era is interesting because Japan learned what the emergence of a truly symbolic emperor looked like,” said Christopher Gerteis, a senior lecturer in contemporary Japanese history at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies. “That process will continue under the next emperor, unless there are changes to the parts of the constitution that relate to the emperor. But that is probably not going to happen.”

In his first public utterance as emperor, Akihito vowed to work alongside the people to protect the constitution. In recent years, that has pitted him against conservative ideologues – notably Abe – who believe that an official adherence to pacifism, imposed by US occupation authorities, perpetuates “masochistic” feelings of guilt over Japan’s wartime conduct.

Akihito’s abdication will take place amid speculation that Abe is poised to begin his attempt to rewrite Japan’s supreme law so that it makes explicit mention of the country’s military, known as the self-defence forces.

At the end of last year, the 85-year-old emperor said he took “deep comfort” from the fact that Japan had not fought in wars during his time on the throne. But his reign is associated with national trauma of a different kind.

The state’s postwar contract with its citizens, practically guaranteeing lifetime employment, pay rises and promotions and a comfortable retirement, gave way to the “lost decades” of rising public debt and deflation, and the spiralling cost of health and welfare services in one of the world’s greyest societies.

People in their 20s and 30s “feel abandoned” by Japan, according to Gerteis. “Economic stagnation has hurt them immensely. It’s put them in a position where retirement is never really going to happen. They were robbed of the kind of affluent future that their parents experienced. They belong to a lost generation, and it’s not their fault.”

But if Japan’s collective memory of the Heisei era is marked by ambivalence, public affection for Akihito remains undiluted, despite pockets of opposition to the use of taxpayers’ money to pay for abdication and accession rituals dripping with religious significance.

“The emperor is no longer a ruler, but a symbol of the people,” said Miyashiro. “The current emperor has made that style his own. He doesn’t look down on ordinary people, but tries to see things from their perspective. You can see that in the way he and Empress Michiko talk to victims of natural disasters. People seem to have an affinity with that. That’s why they were sympathetic when he indicated in 2016 that he wanted to abdicate.”

Outside the palace grounds, 71-year-old Koichi Tanaka contemplated the imminent arrival of the third imperial era of his lifetime. “I was born just after the war, so I have strong memories of the previous emperor,” said Tanaka.

“The current emperor managed to modernise the imperial household, first by marrying someone from outside the imperial family, and then by creating a role for himself that was very different from that of his father. The Heisei era was neither here nor there for me as an individual, but the Heisei emperor is a remarkable man.”

So despite Japan being unlikely to join the unprecedented event of the decade that is Endgame with huge numbers, it's decided to go one step further and have its own once-in-a-lifetime event!

Really excited to see what monstrosity of numbers come next week.
