A round year for anime on the big screen

So what ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero‘ broke records in Spain and became the highest grossing film of the franchise in our country. But nevertheless, she was left with a little corner nailed, since failed to reach the top of the Spanish general box office because ‘Thaddeus Jones 3‘ did not allow it.

Well, as confirmed by Selecta Vision, not only ‘One Piece Film Red’ has been the highest grossing anime film of 2022 on its opening dayif not that it also managed to position itself in the Top 1 during Thursday and Friday of last week, dominating the billboard during its first two days in Spain.

For the next few days he could no longer cope with ‘Black Adam‘, but still managed to stay firmly at the top of the list, showing that indeed anime premieres are doing well in Spain and fans are complying when it comes to going to theaters.

So during its first four days in theaters, ‘One Piece Film Red’ has raised a total of €724,632which is not bad at all and is very close to the €738,000 that ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’ grossed in its first weekend in theaters.

In the third place of anime premieres it would stay ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0‘, which managed to raise €464,900 at its premiere. Among these franchise premieres alongside ‘Detective Conan: The Halloween Bride‘ Y ‘the deer king‘ Y ‘Goodbye, Don Glees!‘, we have been left a very interesting year of anime in theatersso we hope that the distributors continue to encourage us to bring us more films.


For now, next January it finally opens in theaters ‘Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Thrice Upon a Time‘, the last installment of the saga ‘Rebuild of Evangelion‘. Although the international premiere could already be seen on Prime Video, fans of Hideaki Anno They are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to see it on the big screen, so we’ll see if it can beat the record of ‘One Piece’ and the Straw Hats.
