"Your Name." Gets Record-Breaking Rating of 26.3% from Its First Terrestrial Broadcast

The youth-sci film has earned a massive 25 billion yen from its one-year theatrical run in Japan

Video Research reported ratings data for the first terrestrial broadcast of Makoto Shinkai's anime film Kimi no Na wa./Your Name. on TV Asahi on January 3, which included live plus the next seven days (168 hours) of time shifted viewing.

 

The 107-minitue film pulled in a record-breaking total rating of 26.3 percent (live viewing: 17.4/time-shifted viewing: 11.7/excluding overlapped parts). It was the highest record in the "film" category since October 2016 when the research company started reporting the data for time-shifted viewing, surpassing Frozen in March 2017 and Shin Godzilla in November 2017.

 

Shinkai's most successful film ever was released in Japan on August 26, 2016, and earned a gigantic 25 billion yen from its domestic run, becoming the second top-grossing film in the Japanese cinema history. While the main story was aired without any cuts, Shinkai added a newly-edited shorter

ending movie featuring the first verse of RADWIMPS' insert song "Nandemonaiya."
