Bocchi the Rock! Re: movie dominates weekend rankings; anime films continue to reign at Japan box office.

Bocchi the Rock! TV anime’s Season 2 renewal is on the horizon thanks to the success of its compilation films at the Japanese box office. The first film in the recap duology made a stellar debut during the June 7-9 weekend, topping the list of high-grossing films with 140,000 moviegoers and 218 million yen in earnings.

The excitement surrounding the re-edited version of the feel-good anime has fans eagerly anticipating the release of the second movie, Bocchi the Rock! Re:Re: on August 9. Not only is Japan buzzing with anticipation, but North America is also gearing up for the premieres of the compilation movies, with Crunchyroll and Sony taking charge of distribution.

Based on Aki Hamaji’s popular manga series, the girl band anime franchise follows the story of Hitori Gotoh, also known as “Bocchi-chan,” a shy and introverted girl who dreams of shining on stage with her guitar. The series delves into her journey of self-discovery and friendship as she navigates the world of music.

In addition to Bocchi the Rock!, other anime films continue to dominate the Japanese box office. The 27th Detective Conan film has held its top spot for nine weeks, with Detective Conan: The Million-dollar Pentagram impressively earning over 14.6 billion yen and securing a spot as the 16th top-grossing movie in Japanese box office history.

The Top 10 Weekend Ranking at the Japan box office showcases the popularity of anime films, with titles like Umamusume: Pretty Derby—Beginning of a New Era, Code Geass: Rozé of the Recapture Act 2, and IDOLiSH7 The Movie: Live 4bit Beyond the Period making appearances.

June weekend’s top movies at the Japan box office feature a mix of genres, with anime films capturing audience attention alongside other compelling releases like Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga and The Dangerous Detective Returns. As the summer movie season heats up, anime fans can look forward to more exciting releases and box office successes.
