The Demon Slayer Mugen Train anime continues to grind yen at the Japanese box office, already beating a Hayao Miyazaki Enchanted City record.
Emergency for fans of Hayao Miyazaki: one of the record at the Japanese boxoffice of his famous The enchanted city was shattered by the amazing ride of Demon Slayer Mugen Train, l’anime of the Ufotable studio based on the manga and the television series (streamed by us on VVVVID.IT). The latter has in fact already collected 10,750,000,000 yen in ten days, equal to over 100 million dollars: The enchanted city took 25 days to hit that record, which it has therefore officially lost. The result recorded by the adventures of Plate, chronologically subsequent to the end of the first TV series, it is all the more amazing the more you think that Japan is not exempt from Covid, even if he keeps it under control and has eliminated the distances in the room, except where food can be consumed. Last Sunday even the animated film based on the work of Koyoharu Gotōge recorded another record, that of highest grossing in IMAX rooms in just one day: $ 832,000.
Demon Slayer Mugen Train vs Enchanted City: Who Will Win?
Do not panic, however, for fans of poetry Studio Ghibli: theirs The enchanted city at the end of the run it totaled over 30 billion yen, and we’re not calculating inflation. Whatever happens, at the end of the “competition”, Miyazaki’s work will forever remain the first Japanese film to have grossed over $ 200 million before being distributed abroad. Demon Slayer Mugen Train therefore has some road, or rather yen, to grind, but it travels fast like the train at the center of the story.
We remind you that the rights to the Italian distribution of Demon Slayer Mugen Train were acquired by the Dynit.
