"Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Prisma Phantasm" tops the mini theater ranking
Three new anime films ranked in the top 10 for the weekend of June 15-16. The most successful one was the second chapter of the six-part OVA series Girls und Panzer das Finale in the fourth place, which made 145 million yen on 118,000 admissions. Its first weekend gross was 100.9% of that of the first chapter that was released in December 2017 and earned 603 million yen from its total domestic run.
As with the first, it was an amazing result for a film released only in 60 theaters (about one fifth of major Japanese films' theater count in their openings). The release date for its next third chapter has not yet been announced.
The Uta no Prince-sama franchise's first feature film Uta no Prince-sama The Movie: Maji LOVE Kingdom debuted in sixth place, presumably making more than 100 million yen. It also topped Pia's first day satisfaction ranking with a very good 92.4 approval rating.
Coming in seventh was Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl, a feature anime film based on the fifth and sixth volumes of Hajime Kamoshida's "Rascal Does Not Dream of" light novel series. Despite its limited release in 31 theaters, it earned an impressive 101,021,440 yen from the 66,360 ticket sales in its opening weekend.
Meanwhile, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya: Prisma Phantasm, the original OVA featuring the all-star cast from the Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya manga series, didn't appear in the overall top 10, but became No.1 in the mini theater ranking. The 60-minute comedy's limited theatrical run in 25 theaters in Japan kicked off on June 14.
