Spirited Away’s reign as Japan’s highest-grossing film ever is over. Demon Slayer becomes the highest grossing film in the country of the rising sun.

They say that the records are to be broken, it does not matter if it is something that may take us years, if there is a record, it has rarely been set so as not to be broken. The world of cinema is no stranger to it. 2019 saw Avatar lose the throne after 10 years crowned the highest-grossing movie of all time. Avengers Endgame won the crown by the minimum, but sometimes it only takes almost ridiculous differences for the previous record to cease to be valid.

Something similar has happened in Japan, although on a smaller scale. For nearly two decades, a Studio Ghibli film has dominated the Japanese domestic box office with an “iron fist.” Spirited Away and its 31.68 billion yen have been a bone for the productions that came to Japan in hopes of snatching the title to the film from Miyazaki Hayao (Hayao Miyazaki).

But that reign has also come to an end, something that could be seen to come seeing how strong Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba): Infinity train has burst into theaters in Japan. The film TOHO and Aniplex is already the highest-grossing film in Japan with 32.47 billion yen raised (and what’s left).

The Demon Slayer anime film has risen to the title in record time, as it has been in theaters since mid-October. It remains to be seen how it develops in the international box office when it reaches the different markets. Funimation will bring the film to the United States in early 2021, while in Spain we are waiting to find out when we can enjoy Demon Slayer in our cinemas.
