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.

    Seishun Buta’s movie is doing great, isn’t it? and Promare seems to be doing pretty good too due to great word of mouth. do you see it reaching ¥600,000,000?

    • something something says:

      I don’t know what counts as “good” for an original film like Promare, but it has hung on for more weeks than I expected. It will probably hit ¥600m, though it’ll likely happen after it drops out of the top 10, unless there’s some kind of giveaway, or some weak weekends coming up, or maybe a screen count expansion? We’ll probably hear more when a BD is solicited.

      As for Seishun Buta, this does seem like a good result given the TV anime was well-received but not a smash hit or anything. Corpse at the KJ forums I linked mentioned that it had extremely high sell-through on its available tickets, even for an anime film on limited screens (where high sell-through is common), so it’s possible it could see an expansion to more screens. With these niche anime films, predicting a final box office is basically impossible because their legs can vary so much.

      • something something says:

        So we don’t have weekend actuals quite yet, but based on estimates Promare increased week over week again and is well over ¥600m so I guess there wasn’t much waiting required.

      And Corpse made a typo in the actuals, it should be “Week 3”. Seems to me this one has the best chance of hitting the JP¥1 billion mark.

      • something something says:

        It’s just a full-3DCG concert so it doesn’t belong on this list, which is why I’m not tracking it.

        • Avatar Rosa says:

          Why do you say it’s full-3D CG when it clearly isn’t? Love Live! and so many other anime have some 3D CG mixed into it too, why is this one different?
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNEAKD8XJDU

          • something something says:

            I read elsewhere that it was pure CG, and briefly skimmed a few PVs to check. Those PVs only had the the 3DCG concert footage, so I hadn’t seen this one where it has some 2D portions outside outside of the performances. Is there actually any 2D outside of short bits where they’re MCing between songs, though? And does the film have a story outside of the concert performance? If not, that’d make it a huge stretch for inclusion. A couple token 2D scenes does not an anime make. If it’s more like half and half then I’d add it.

            To my knowledge the other idol series that have had movies have (CG) performances in them, but only as a few scenes, not as the whole film. The way I read Utapri being described is that it’s literally a (CG) concert you’re watching on a movie screen. That’s a fairly unique type of film I don’t think we have precedent for here.

            • Avatar Akemi says:

              I saw the movie last week and it’s probably around 30% 3D. Not all of their performances are CG, yes it does have a story outside of the concert and yes, there is a precedent for this in the form of Tsukiuta, the concept is very similar leading up to the concert. Not sure what are your sources or if that person actually saw the film but they are definitely misinformed.

    • Avatar Mel says:

      Pardon but I noticed on worldofkj Corpse states promare opened at 121 screens but here it’s listed as 200, is there an error or am I misunderstanding something?

      • something something says:

        In the opening weekend post, they wrote:
        “>Promare’s weekend figure remains an estimate, but its three-day total is the actual. It sold 64,975 admissions since opening on Friday across 200 screens.”

        I’m not sure if that was a mistake or if the latest posts are saying that the current screen count is 121 but it started at 200.

        • Avatar Kyoani says:

          Do you think Promare will reach 1 billion?
          Is Free Road to the World’s opening an increase from Free Starting Days?

          • something something says:

            Promare could hit ¥1bn, though it will probably take three weeks, unless there’s some giveaway/promotion. Or we might not find out until the end of its run when we get a final number from the distributor, who would probably put out some kind of news item if it hit that milestone. That said, it’s been really resilient in the top 10-15 so maybe it’ll just keep ranking and we’ll know before then.
            No, Starting Days opened at ¥95m with a two day weekend while RtW’s did ¥80m (estimate) with a three day weekend.

            • Avatar Ore says:

              Can we say that Promare is a hit now? I mean it did pretty well for an original movie that wasn’t based on a well-known anime

              • something something says:

                We can say it’s made ¥816m in 7 weeks, that’s about all that can be objectively stated! But I would say that this feels like a strong performance. That feeling is biased in part because its opening weekend wasn’t anything special, and strong legs always make a film run look kind of impressive. Just keep in mind that it’s entirely possible the committee thought it’d open much higher, and where we are now is where they expected to be a month ago. I wouldn’t put money on that being the case, but it’s the kind of scenario we always need to keep in mind when we’re completely in the dark as to what the companies behind the film expected out of it.
