Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Is Now One Of The Highest-Grossing Anime Films In The World

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 debuted in Japan last year, and it’s been tearing up the box office ever since. After its recent US debut, all eyes are on the film as it wraps up release in markets around the world. And thanks to a new update to the numbers, it seems Jujutsu Kaisen 0 reached the top ten for highest-grossing anime films to date.

The update comes from Mantan Web as Jujutsu Kaisen 0 continues to roll out in markets around the world while bringing in modest sums to Japanese audiences. As it turns out, the film has officially grossed just over US$170 million worldwide since its debut. That includes the nearly $120 million provided by the Japanese box office alone. And with that total in mind, well – Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is now the ninth highest-grossing animated film of all time.

The shonen film surpassed the record once held by Princess Mononoke from Studio Ghibli. The classic film now ranks tenth in the world. Yes Jujutsu Kaisen 0 wants to take a new place, we will have to challenge ourselves Pokemon: The First Movie. The old-school film currently sits in eighth place, but given the revenue gap here, it’s hard to imagine Jujutsu Kaisen 0 mustering enough funds to overtake Ash Ketchum.

Of course, strange things happened, and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 might surprise fans. If it makes a return to theaters before season two, the push could be enough to eliminate Pokemon. After all, Jujutsu Kaisen is one of the biggest anime on air these days. All eyes are on season two, and fans will no doubt want to binge on anime once more before Yuji embarks on his next adventure. But even if Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is about to finish with the theaters, he finishes his race at the top with an impressive stage in hand.
