Japan Box Office: Live-Action Touken Ranbu Delivers Top Five Opening

"Dragon Ball Super: Broly" has almost reached the franchise's milestone



The highly-anticipated live-action film adaptation of Nitroplus and DMM Games' collectible card browser

video game Touken Ranbu finally released in 111 theaters across Japan on January 18, and ranked fifth

in its opening weekend. Its first weekend gross has not yet been reported. The 101-minute film also took

No.1 on Pia's first day satisfaction ranking with a very good 94.1 approval rating.


Last week's top-grossing film Fate/stay night [Heaven's Feel] THE MOVIE II. lost butterfly dropped to

third place in its second weekend.


While surprising the US theaters, Toei Animation's 20th Dragon Ball film Dragon Ball Super:Broly has

earned 3.7 billion yen with the 2.9 million ticket sales in its home country in six weeks since its release

on December 14, 2018. It is expected to become the Dragon Ball anime franchise's top-grossing film

by the end of this week, surpassing the current record of 3.74 billion yen marked by Dragon Ball Z:

Resurrection 'F ' in 2015.


In its third weekend, the all-new feature film Love Live! Sunshine!! The School Idol Movie Over The

Rainbow climbed one position up to seventh from the first two weekends' eighth. The 100-minute

sequel to the two TV anime series in 2016 and 2017 had earned 442,975,476 yen by its second

weekend, which was about a half of the first nine-day gross of Love Live! The School Idol Movie in

2015. The franchise's first feature film took No.1 on Japan's weekend box office ranking for three

consecutive weeks.
