This weekend saw the end of the record-breaking, award-winning One Piece Film Red run in Japan, and it went out with a major bang. The official Eiichiro Oda staff Twitter account confirmed that the movie has pulled in an incredible 31.9 billion yen (about US$245.27 million) globally, making it the fourth highest-grossing anime film of all time in the world.
The only anime films that have performed better than One Piece Film Red globally are Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- the Movie: Mugen Train, Spirited Away and Your Name., in that order. Film Red‘s entry pushes Howl’s Moving Castle down a notch and moves Princess Mononoke out of the global top 10 completely.
Eiichiro Oda whipped up a celebratory illustration of Luffy in Gear 5 form to mark the occasion.
Meanwhile, in Japan, One Piece Film Red is now the sixth highest-grossing anime film of all time, overtaking Howl’s Moving Castle, while also becoming the region’s eighth highest-grossing overall film of all time.
