What You Need to Know:
- It's been around the rumour mill for a while now that international hit Kimi no Na wa (Your Name) might eventually overtake Studio Ghibli's Spirited Away to become the highest grossing anime movie of all time.
- Now, according to various sources across the interwebs, this has become a reality! Internationally, Kimi no Na wa now stands at 33.93 billion Yen (around 290 Million USD) gross, beating Spirited Away by just over one billion Yen.
- With the anime movie coming to North American theatres soon, and being potentially up for an Academy Award, just how many more records can Kimi no Na wa break? Stay tuned to find out.
I can't believe it actually beat Spirited Away! And it's not even finished its run yet!
I'm not surprised at all! It really has become such an international boom, I feel like anything is possible for it now!
