Haikyu!! The Dumpster Battle Crosses The 5 Billion Yen Mark In Japanese Box Office

According to Kogyo Tsushin, as of March 3, the first part of the Haikyu!! Final film series “Haikyu!! The Dumpster Battle” generated revenue of 5.1 billion yen (US$33.94 million) on its 17th day in Japanese theaters from the sale of 3.59 million tickets.

This accomplishment was accomplished within the same timeframe as other highly acclaimed films, like Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween, Code Blue, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, all of which concluded their release with a total revenue slightly below 10 billion yen.

Even Frozen, Japan’s 4th highest-grossing film of all time, also made 5 billion yen in 17 days, which Haikyu!! seems to be following suit.
