It’s official: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train has claimed the highest spot in Japan’s all-time box office ranking, with a domestic cume that stands at 32.47 billion yen (USD$313 million). This moment had seemed inevitable for a short time, but it’s no less stunning for that.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train won’t have hit North American theaters as of yet, but this is not stopping the primary film within the franchise from shattering records at the box office, with the newest adventure of Tanjiro and Nezuko doing the impossible and spending Studio Ghibli’s Spirited Away overall profits! Spirited Away originally pulled in over many millions of dollars when it came to the general box office, but Demon Slayer: Mugen Train has had such a tremendous run that it’s managed to tug in even more despite not hitting all the theaters of the world!
Demon Slayer’s first movie acts as a sequel to the primary anime season, following Tanjiro and his friends as they plan to battle demonic threats aboard a runaway locomotive. With Studio Ufotable liable for both this new movie and therefore the first season of the series created by Koyoharu Gotouge, fans are waiting anxiously to see when the second season of the tv series is going to be confirmed. For quite a while, Spirited Away, which was Studio Ghibli’s only film to receive the Academy Award for “Best Animated Feature”, held a gentle lead over this latest Ufotable film but it’s clear that the newest anime adventure for the Demon Slayer Corps has grown to be one among the foremost popular anime movies ever made!
Studio Ghibli may need to be surpassed by Demon Slayer here, but that may not stop the legendary animation studio from working diligently on their two upcoming projects with Earwig and therefore the Witch and how do you Live. With an amusement park being created that brings a number of Ghibli’s biggest movies to life, the animation house will have many opportunities to undertake to get back the crown!
