A few moments ago, Kyoto Animation took stock Recordings from Violet Evergardens film after six weeks in Japanese cinemas. While the film is unable to get anywhere near the numbers of Demon Slayer: Infinity Train, it can nonetheless celebrate a revenue of 1.5 billion yen.
The top floors of KyoAni in particular have shown this 1.1 million tickets were sold in exactly 38 daysand collected 550 million yen (about 4,400,000 €) on the first weekend, 1,117 billion yen (about 9,000,000 €) after three weeks, and 1.5 billion (about 12,000,000 €) by midnight on October 25th. This is a much higher number than expected, especially given the fact that the first film released in 2019 achieved worldwide sales of around 1.1 billion yen.
Kyoto Animation can therefore celebrate the excellent result achieved at the expense of the Covid emergency, which does not seem to have slowed the Japanese public. The film took sixth place at the box officeand will be in theaters for another month. Nothing has yet been confirmed about a possible arrival of the film in Italy, perhaps in the course of 2021.
