    According to this article the movie made 1,6 B in japan
    Facebook etc you've surely seen it all, as they hype the sales for the movie because it was hot in america or some shit (made 5M$ or pennies like that) well the bad news is that its 5 B milestone for when a movie is considered somewhat big, they could reach that in Japan alone as they rarely get released overseas unlike this somehow did .
    !
    A nobody gintama live action film popping 3,5 B like nothing .

    Sad but true, that BnH two heroes was like a fart in the wind .

    It wasn't a extraordinary success, but it should have more then earned its money back, probably made Bones more profit then the previous 3 blu-ray seasons sales combined.

    To break it down further, bnha s1 and s2 sales were like 5k per volume on average I believe, don't know what s3 sales are yet. We don't have accurate numbers on how much it costs to make a specific anime, but the general consensus is that it takes around 3k sales per blu-ray volume to make its money back, with 5k sales that means roughly around 60% profit.

    Almost every anime is given a budget of 4m dollars per cour(this is pretty consistent), so with 60% profit margin that is like 2.4m in profit per cour. S1 being one core, and s2 being two cores, that is roughly 7.2m in profits between both seasons. Assuming S3 does just as well, that should bump the umber up to 13.6m in profit.

    I have no idea what the movie's budget is, I only know its about as difficult and time consuming as making a anime season, so I don't think it was massively more expensive then making a anime.

    Before movie was start airing, I read that if it made 1 billion yen it would be considered as success, but movie actually did better.

    1 billion yen is terrible, 2 billion yen is not much to talk about 3-4 billion yen is "successful enough" to "good" and above 5 B is blockbuster which everyone hyped it out to be.

    How much due Anime movies actually make on average? My Hero's popularity is more world spread then being a giant movement in Japan. Despite very little marketing, its currently number 10 in anime box office in America(probably going to get pushed off by the broly movie) and still has a Europe release date.

    The highest grossing Naruto film mad 2 billion yen. The HxH films made 400 million and 600 million apiece. The animated Gintama films made 1 billion and 300 million apiece. Even Heaven's Feel only made 1.5 billion and its completed its run. Essentially, BnHA is well ahead of the curve for shonen movies even in Japan, though its overseas showings are far more remarkable as you say.

    One Piece and Dragonball totally blows all of these out of the water (especially BoG) by several times....but that isn't a surprise really.

    it got that fat off dat china money, do some research first thanks

    pretty much the benchmark for shonen animated films that aren't DB/OP level big. 2 billion is several times higher than what most of them (ie HxH) dish out. If you wanna laugh at it for not challenging DB or OP then lmao

    I came here from Comic Vine to get away from all the Marvel vs. DC bait threads and it turns out you guys have your own CaptainSalt. That's actually kind of funny.

    I'm curious, does Keishin ever get banned for spam posting bait threads and then comes back soon after under a different name to post basically the same stuff? We actually lost count of CaptainSalt's numerous alt accounts.

    Keishin is alright, this thread isn't so bad and its not like he makes threads like this all the time, he has been a regular for awhile and I actually do like seeing his takes on things. Things are pretty chill around here for the most part, sometimes things get heated but there aren't really any grudges or people at each others throats.

    That's good to hear. Sometimes CaptainSalt could be a little funny, but most of the time he was just a troll who went out of his way to bash on anything DC related, constantly making the same threads over and over as to why the company is B-list and it's movies and comics are garbage, only to get banned for spam and then create another account to post the same stuff all over again (sometimes even just relying to his old threads to agree with himself).

    That moment when @Tenma utterly owns the shit outta @Keishin. :kobeha

    I mean, the dude came out with JAPANESE revenue, and then when hit with the Japanese revenue from other properties for perspective, it's suddenly gross revenue from ALL countries that's important. :hestonpls

    Bruh, you can't get more owned than that. Bravo, Tenma. :yousmart

    Live-action films generally make alot more money in box office than Animated films do. Look at the Assasination classroom live-action for example.

    $1.6 B is a pretty good success for BNHA first film ($2 B would have been ideal but whateves). It's success in the US makes up for it anyway.
