One Piece: Red could surpass Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train

It seems that Luffy could get hold of this treasure…

One Piece: Red has had tremendous success at the Japanese box office, thus warranting the question of whether or not it can beat the huge box office record of Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train, which was made into the Japanese movie. most successful in history. Red’s performance at the box office has been similarly successful, but whether or not it can top mugen train is a whole different story.

At the moment, Mugen Train is still the highest grossing anime film of all time, but since the One Piece anime film has a similar box office, even without its release in the West, there seems to be a promising future for this production. One Piece Film: Red opened with around 2.25 billion yen and at the time of writing, Red, has raised over 8 billion yen in Japan with a total of 63.65 million dollars with some other countries. **The One Piece movie had the highest domestic gross in the franchise*, managing to gross five billion yen in just eight days, making it the second fastest movie to do so in Japanese history.

One Piece: Red has had the biggest success of all the films in the Eiichiro Oda franchise thus far.

For its part, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, another successful anime film, had a larger opening than One Piece Film: Red with 2.694 billion yen, but after two weeks in theaters, I had only raised 6.7 billion yenabout 58 million dollarsso it’s clear that it started to decline in popularity a bit earlier than One Piece Film: Red. Based on all of that, it’s clear that Oda’s franchise film brute has managed to rise above Jujutsu Kaisen 0 , but still nowhere near Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train.

Considering its various box office totals, One Piece: Red is very likely to overtake Studio MAPPA’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0 at the box office. Also, the international release of One Piece: Red in the biggest markets should also help. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 had a worldwide gross of $190.3 million, meaning it earned around $85 million from overseas markets. Red already has a domestic brute faster than Jujutsu Kaisen 0, so its international gross should be just as fast, especially with Toei Animation and Sony helping its distribution. Add in how western territories have been putting more action into anime movies in recent years, a perfect example is how Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opened in more than triple the number of theaters that Dragon Ball Super: Broly did and One Piece Film: Red is sure to have similar massive box office returns internationally.

Could One Piece: Red beat Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train?

However, it is highly unlikely to top the box office numbers of the movie Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train.. As impressive as One Piece: Red’s box office growth is after a couple of weeks, it’s still far behind what Mugen Train was during the same time period, and it would be unrealistic to think that Red could catch up.

Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train

Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer): Mugen Train is still the most successful movie in Japan.

For starters, it was one of the most popular anime of 2019, if not the most popular, and helped make the series one of the biggest manga franchises in recent years. Since Mugen Train is the next installment of the Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer) anime, there was probably a level of momentum and general excitement for Mugen Train that other anime movies couldn’t match. It’s also how COVID restrictions they had lightened up in Japan at the time, making Mugen Train one of the first movies people were able to see since the pandemic began. It was a perfect mix hard to beat.
