"Zero the Enforcer" Becomes Top-Grossing Film in "Detective Conan" Anime Franchise

"Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle" ranks 8th in its opening weekend

As expected, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer easily topped Japan's weekend box office for the six weekend in a row, beating strong newcomers including live-action/computer-animated family comedy film Peter Rabbit and Dwayne Johnson-starring giant monster pic Rampage. The 22nd Conan film has earned a gigantic 7.2 billion yen (about 64.67 million US dollars) since its opening on April 13, and has finally become the top-grossing film in the 22-year-old anime franchise, surpassing the 21st film Crimson Love Letter that grossed 6.87 billion yen from its domestic run in 2017.

 

The film series has broken its box office record for six consecutive years since the 17th film Private Eye in the Distant Sea in 2013. According to distributor Toho, it is no dream for the 22nd film to surpass the eight billion yen mark.
