Suzume becomes the 10th highest-grossing anime film in Japanese history, now surpassing this Studio Ghibli work

suzume” premiered a few weeks ago in Japan as the new feature film by Makoto Shinkai, that director who throughout the last decade has left us with world hits of the caliber of “Your Name” or “Weathering With You” more recently. Now, we are waiting for the international premiere of this new film to materialize, which just made history in Japan like very few others had managed prior to his passage.

Suzume Leaves The Wind Rises Behind To Enter Japan’s Top 10 Anime

Then I leave you with the details of the new achievement of “Suzume”, which enter a select club now of anime hits from the history of Japan (via ANN):

  • Indeed, Suzume has become at this point in the 10th highest-grossing anime film in all of Japanese history. 😮
  • To achieve something like this, in the process has recently surpassed The Wind Rises, the latest film by Hayao Miyazaki, the iconic director of Studio Ghibli. 🤔
  • This privileged position is one that reaches the exceed 12.13 billion yen grossed in Japanese theaters, a figure equivalent to about €85.6 million approximately. Also, this translates into a total of 9.13 million tickets sold all over Japan. 🤑
  • Suzume started at the time with the best opening of a film of the career of Makoto Shinkai, and in its nine weeks at the box office it has consistently ranked in the top two grossing films of each past weekend. 😎

If there’s nothing weird, in Spain we should see how “Suzume” premieres at some point this spring, because it is for when the first international release dates of the film were located. Historically (at least recently), Makoto Shinkai’s films have done VERY well on a Western scale as well, so with the results he’s getting in Japan, I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens again. That being said, we can only continue to wait for the information to arrive whenever it is due.
