Toho-distributed Seven Anime Films Surpassed One Billion Yen Mark in First Half of 2021

"The Promised Neverland" live-action film reached 2 billion yen

 

 

 

Japanese film production and distribution company Toho has announced the list of the films that surpassed the one billion yen (9.11 million USD) mark in the first half of 2021. According to the report, seven anime films, including Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train, which broke Japan's box office record of all-time, reached the milestone. In the Japanese movie business, a film is considered a hit if it exceeds one billion yen (of course, its success as a business depends on how much it cost to make).

 

Of the films distributed by Toho in the first half of 2021 (from November 2020 to June 2021), 11 films earned more than 1 billion yen, and two films released in October 2020 reached the number during the period.
