This post will list the box office revenues for anime movies originating from TV anime, specifically late night (Madoka, Garupan, Monogatari, etc) and some prime time (Evangelion, Nichigo slot, etc) TV anime. I now also cover original movies and more mainstream/family fare such as Ghibli, Doraemon, Meitantei Conan, Pokemon, One Piece, Naruto, etc., though only from 2012 onward.

Total Gross # Weekends Wk1 Screens Max Screens Sources unconfirmed or no data available Release Date

Note: # of weekends – box office rankings are measured after the weekends and movies start on weekends – can be misleading. Most movies only appear a few times in the normal rankings, but later reports cover a longer period of time. Sometimes this is to the end of the theatrical run, sometimes it’s just random points throughout.

Sources for older films are a mix of yearly lists on MAL/ANN/Yaraon, while more recent films are tracked while in theaters via BunkaTsuhin, Chinematoday, Mantanweb, and particularly this World of KJ thread, as well as Box Office Mojo as a source of last resort. It won’t be complete for older films because anime movies usually don’t rank highly and it’s hard to find accurate information for anything below about ¥400m from just the Year End lists.

Not all movies on the list have equally good sources; Mojo alone would have Fate UBW at ¥35m (one weekend), but the mid-year list from animeanime.biz has a total (after 5 months) of ¥280m. This is a fairly extreme example, but it means that the above can’t always be compared directly with complete fairness. Use of Mojo is avoided where possible because their strange currency conversions result in incorrect (still close, but incorrect) numbers.

    I was very confused by the last one there because it last ranked in its 3rd weekend on March 17-18. But ultimatemegax pointed out that it got 4DX screenings in its 11th weekend, which was enough to just barely get it on the list and fill in a bunch of missing data. It increased from ¥291m to ¥492m.

    Sayonara no Asa ni Yakusoku no Hana wo Kazarou ended at ¥350m. Last number we had was ¥190m after the third weekend.

    • Mami Kawada Lover says:

      That doesn’t sound very good does it? For an anime film those numbers seem pretty low, and I thought they were trying to go for a more mainstream audience this time?

    Finally have a date on Part 2 (of 6) Garupan das Final OVA. June 2019.

    https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2018-07-26/2nd-girls-und-panzer-finale-anime-film-opens-in-june-2019/.134716

    Hope we all live long enough to see the conclusion in 2026.

    Also finally a box version with 5.1 sound. Wonder how many will sell.

    And they are doing 4DX and MX4D of the recap Bluray to release in 110 theaters Sept 29. Kinda odd they doing in so many theaters for a recap of the first series.

      I still haven’t watched the first one in part because I see no rush with the thing set to not wrap up for like another 100 years.

    Hello something,

    I’m new to all those number of box office. How much for a anime movie need to make to breakeven? Or how much a anime movie make to be consider “decent”? I’m interested in HeroAca’s movie which open this weekend and would like to know if it makes good money or not. The estimates for the first day is around 225 million yen. Is that number good enough?

    • something something says:

      Every film committee is going to have different expectations for every film, so it really depends. A film like HeroAca probably had a big marketing budget, relatively speaking. It wuld be expected to make a whole lot more than, say, a small-scale adaptation of a late night series. While ¥1bn would be massive for most late night series, it would probably be considered a significant disappointment for Heroaca (not that it should have any problem making a lot more than that by the end). Of course disappointment doesn’t mean unprofitable, and really the only people who will ever know if it lived up to expectations are the members of the committee that funded it.
