The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba movie broke box office records in Japan. Within the first ten days of being released, following its October 16, 2020 debut, the animated feature film made over ¥10 billion in sales. That ends up being roughly $95.3 million. [Thanks, The Mainichi!]
This means Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train beat Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirted Away as the fasted grossing film in Japan after making over ¥10 billion in sales in a span of ten days. However, Spirited Away still holds the record for the highest grossing Japanese film of all time. Time will tell if Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train will break even more records and steal that title too.
In addition to setting the record of fastest grossing film reaching over ¥10 billion in sales within a ten day period, the move also broke the record for ticket sales. The Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train movie made approximately ¥4.62 billion within the first three days of its release.
