In fact, there were many animated films that made headlines during the year. Some names of all have been Dragon Ball Super: Superheroes, ONE PIECE Movie: RED, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the new work by Shinkai Suzume no Tojimari and then some ubiquitous classics like the Detective Conan movies. But who has the most tickets?

  1. ONE PIECE film RED: 18.78 billion yen (about 130 million euros);
  2. Jujutsu Kaisen 0: 13.8 billion yen (about 98 million euros);
  3. Suzume no Tojimari: 10 billion yen (about 71 million euros);
