Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Evangelion On Top; 3rd Highest 14th WK
Funny stat (and because I like bashing Disney's disinterested attitude in theatrical releases right now):

Evangelion's 14th weekend is 95.4% of the combined opening weekends of Disney's entire 2020 and 2021 slate of theatrical releases in Japan so far.

It's rare for sequels to rank high (or at all) on the biggest weekend charts after week 12 or so, and Evangelion is the only sequel on the Biggest 14th Weekend list here. Very impressive.

Very close battle for #1 as I mentioned above this weekend. The top 3 films were only separated by 4,296 admissions, and... Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time came out on top by rising back inside the top 10 to claim the #1 spot in its fourteenth weekend of release, experiencing a 1,458% increase due to its franchise farewell/sendoff giveaway event.

Evangelion sold 169,296 admissions, second place was Rurouni Kensin: The Final Chapter - The Beginning with 167,000 admissions, and debuting in third was the new Gundam film selling 165,000 admissions. Full actuals will be posted later this evening.

I'll be watching how it sells, definitely. Barring some crazy unknown phenomenon in the next few years, Demon Slayer is quite honestly the last movie that could potentially challenge/break some home video sales records in the market.

Are you interested in covering the 1st or 2nd week of the Bluray/DVD sales of Mugen Train, @Corpse? Like a farewell to your 8-hardworking months during the runtime of the movie.

Didn't really have time for the Weekend Estimates today, but this was a very solid and exciting weekend.

There's a 3-way battle for #1 between a new Gundam film (easily going to become the biggest film in the series), Rurouni Kenshin: The Final - The Beginning's second weekend, and, surprise Evangelion's thirteenth weekend which rose perhaps around 900% (yes, nine-hundred) due to its farewell/sendoff event.

Actuals and charts will be posted tomorrow.

Jujutsu Kaisen is much bigger than My Hero Academia in Japan if we compare manga sales. JJK only has half as many volumes right now, yet it has 13 million more copies in print (50 million vs. 37 million). The recent volumes are selling 3/4x more in their first week than MHA ever did in its peak.

Since the movie is adapting volume 0, which is very popular and has even outsold most of the volumes in the main series, it's going to bring in nearly all of the fans, especially if we assume they'll be a giveaway exclusive to go along with it.

¥5 billion is a fair target, in my opinion. Only some One Piece films and the Demon Slayer movie have broke this milestone among all animated WSJ films. How close to, or potentially over, ¥10 billion will depend on the appeal it has outside the fanbase, which is pretty unknown at this stage I believe since It's still a younger series that's still growing a bit. But it's a lot more violent than most WSJ series (the movie will definitely be R15+), so it probably won't manage to reach a significant casual (both younger and older) audience.

The next arc (following this upcoming prequel arc that the movie is adapting) is easily the most brutal and violent arc I've read among WSJ titles in a very long time. It's absolutely amazing and one of the best arcs in all of WSJ/Shonen, and season 2 adapting it will be insane, but it's very unrelenting in the brutal/violent category, especially for a series being published in WSJ.

Nah
Evangelion is literally a cult in Japan. It had massive following unlike JJK. JJK probably won't reach that high of a grossing when even Detective Conan can't.
But nothing is impossible. If the manga continues to grow, more and more people might check the movie as it's the prequel to JJK.
But who knows. We just need to wait and see.


Conan can. It has in the past and would have done so again without restrictions. I think JJK will definitely hit 5 billion.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: WKND Actuals (06/05-06); Charts Update
I'm setting its over/under at 1 million copies in its first week, which as your numbers show, can get it above its opening weekend (either 2-day or 3-day) at the box office in revenue.

Personally, given what it's done across every other medium, I think it's going to go comfortably above that mark and challenge Frozen's first week. But I don't want to overpredict anything. 2021's home video market is a lot different than 2014's, so it's of course something to consider.

The fanbase is so large though, I think they alone will push it well beyond 500,000. Factor in a certain number of the fanbase that's likely to buy more than one copy (multiple versions being released), it could go significantly higher. And since it achieved mainstream success too (which is a massive understatement, to say the least here), there is a lot of potential for the casual audiences to pick it up for a wide variety of reasons (for themselves, their children, gifts for friends or other relatives, just to own the biggest film ever, etc.).

It's sort of the perfect storm of having the big fanbase appeal like a late-night or just popular anime series (on steroids), AND and the major mainstream appeal like a Hayao Miyazaki film. If Demon Slayer does fail to challenge/break a lot of home video records, I think we can safely assume all the current records are likely to hold forever (not an exaggeration).

Based on the 2-day (¥3.35bn) or 3-day (¥4.62bn) totals? With the release coming up soon I've looked a bit into where things stand so far. (Time for an overly long post that will be moot once the real data is out in a week and a half lol)

The biggest factor is the edition split. Impossible to perfectly predict of course, though on the sales estimation website pripri.xyz (which extrapolates to the overall market based on Amazon rankings), it's very heavily leaning towards the regular edition, which makes sense for a mass-appeal film, especially given the much lower price.

The percentage for each version in pripri's estimate is:
71.8% - regular edition (¥4,000/3,500 MSRP w/o tax)
22.4% - limited edition (¥9,000/8,000)
5.9% - limited store exclusive (¥11,700/10,700)

Some other store exclusives are a couple hundred yen less, but it it's all about the same. Also, it should go without saying that pripri's estimates could be wrong (i.e. Amazon may not be representative of the overall market), though they tend to be within a ballpark or two. But an atypical release like this does complicate matters, for various reasons.

One minor issue is in how Oricon may report the data. Typically the entries on their weekly lists correspond to entries in their database, but the latter has no listing for the store exclusives. I don't think this means the exclusives will go unreported; they'll almost definitely be reported as part of the non-exclusive ¥9000 BD/¥8000 DVD LE. Usually this isn't a problem because most store exclusives have the same MSRP as the non-exclusive LE anyway. Kimetsu is pretty unusual in having higher priced exclusives. That said, we're talking about missing ~25% of the MSRP of a few percentage points of the total sales. Not a big deal. So they're being treated as the ¥9/8k LEs for my purposes.

Next is the DVD/BD split. The TV series' split was 42/58% DVD/BD. A mainstream film will probably be closer, and indeed the pripri estimates show 45/55% (though even 50/50 wouldn't shock me).

All told, if we take pripri's current splits it would need something like:
¥3.35bn = 61k BD LE + 324k BD RE + 49k DVD LE + 316k DVD RE = 751k total week 1
¥4.62bn = 85k BD LE + 448k BD RE + 68k DVD LE + 435k DVD RE = 1,036k total week 1

If the LEs get more than the ~30% estimated share (very possible), lower numbers would do the trick. As for how feasible either number is, we'll know soon enough!

(One last thing to look out for is whether Aniplex puts out a press release reporting official shipment numbers. If so, that's the more meaningful number versus anything Oricon puts out, the latter of which will always be incomplete. But we can't compare the official shipment numbers for one release to Oricon numbers for another, and official numbers are almost never released, so Oricon data always gets used when comparing releases to each other.)

Yeah, they're just on a much smaller scale and very limited.

There will be five stage greeting showings in total (each with a different cast member), with one happening each week in July (week 2 has two). The audience will be determined by lottery. So they'll add something like 2,500 more admissions and maybe ¥6/7 million (~$55,000-65,000) or so depending on the ticket prices, assuming each venue has around 500 seats without capacity restrictions still in place by then.

I also saw that despite the near end of its run, the Demon Slayer event with stage greetings and gifts is still on the cards. Even if it won't bring in much, it will maybe bring it closer to ¥40.2Bn before the end.

Thursday for DS was 2x previous week but no DS for Friday in Mimorin. So run is over?


Not quite, but it's down to 110 theaters (mostly Aeon theaters) starting today with just one showing per location, losing about 2/3rds of its theaters, and more are scheduled to drop it June 17th. So, its run is certainly near its end and will basically be over next week.

The home video release is just days away now (June 16th), which takes the vast majority of business away from theaters, so it's pretty common for theaters to begin dropping films (if they're still playing) just before and right after the home video release. Home video releases effectively end a film's theatrical run in the market since ownership is still very prominent in Japan, and piracy is almost non-existent in the market. A lot more to be gained (~3x more excluding all the special edition prices which can be 5x+ more) from selling a Blu-ray/DVD than a movie ticket.

I'm expecting the home video release's first week in sales (revenue) to possibly beat its first weekend at the box office (the all-time record by a huge margin). The home video market is just another territory for it to try to conquer after the manga/book industry and box office.
