The 126-minute film earned 12 billion yen in the Japanese box office

Hayao Miyazaki's 2013 anime film The Wind Rises, which is considered as his last feature film, was aired on Nihon TV's Friday Roadshow for the first time from 21:00 on February 20. Its average viewing rating was 19.5% (Kanto area, researched by Video Research), which was 10.3% lower than his previous film Ponyo (29.8%) aired in February 2010, and also 13.4% down from Howl's Moving Castle (32.9%) in July 2006.
