Toho has published its financial report for the first quarter of its 2021 fiscal year, which runs through February 2022. It revealed that the company’s earnings increased by over 3000% compared to the same quarter in the previous fiscal year. This success is mostly due to the earnings of both Evangelion 3.0+1.0 and Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
