This Movie BEATS Avengers Infinity War in Japan


Avengers: Infinity War has been beating records left and right but surprisingly in Japan, an anime movie beat its opening weekend by quite a margin and Infinity War ranked 2nd while this anime movie was already in its 3rd week of screening. There has also been some discussion floating around that parts of Infinity War may have been inspired by or referenced anime like dragon ball super and Naruto. Did you spot them when you were watching them?

    I was expected some fad date movie like "Your Name." Conan, though….? Really? Every Conan movie is the fucking same.

    Funny enough this week is the week Funimation actually had their license on Detective Conan expire. They only released 5 seasons of it and about 6 of it's movies before giving up on it in the US.

    That is a disgusting fan theory based off of nothing but a character role. (i.e. the Villain) Thanos is selfless and see's himself as the hero, Freiza is selfish and cares for nothing but power. Nuff said.

    When Thanos sacrifices Gamora did you guys notice how it was a reference to berserk ? I may be wrong but the similarities are crazy. 1) Thanos and Gamora enter a planet where it was dark and eery with the eclipse in the background 2) Red Skull comes out and tells him about the soul stone and how he has to sacrifice something he loves in order for him to reach the soul stone and his dream. “A soul for a soul” kind of how void tells Griffith how he needed a sacrifice in order for Griffith to reach his dream. 3) After Thanos sacrifices Gamora he ends up in a quiet place and wakes up in like a pond or river with nothing around except for a giant eclipse. Just like how when Griffith pulls out his behelit and causes the eclipse….. they also have similar backgrounds and colors when this had happened. I caught on to this so quick at the theater while I was watching but like I said it may be a reference or just a complete coincidence. Who knows ? 🤷🏽‍♂️

    i don't know i mean for the most part japan has a tendency of over hyping anime films based on long running series where when you watch most of them a 2nd or third time you'll they really weren't all that great or were flawed in some heavy way you didn't notice the first 2 times as you are basically caught up in the flash and epic stuff.

    examples The Last and Boruto Naruto the Movies. yes both of these did a lot better than previous Naruto movies and were even the highest sales Naruto has ever seen or has ever gotten since then. but when you look back on them and compare the trailers they gave out you'll just like you mentioned in this they over hyped the anime film and underrate others that were likely better. example the last promoted sasuke a lot for the last but sasuke only had like a few seconds of screen time, the boruto movie sounded interesting in the trailers but when you watch it you'll certain issues with the plot that was laid out and same with the last's plot in terms of the why and how of most things.

    I actually would say that the way in which movies are advertised do affect interests. What Ive come to find out why Japan most often has their own version of trailers rather than a subbed version of the released American/global trailers has to do with cultural differences. Differences in editing techniques and what appeals to the audiences in action or humor. Is there a need to always include a narrator in movie trailers? no, but Japan still enjoys always including one. While Im not trying to imply that I'm not surprised that conan came in first before A:IW but just food for thought :')

    Japan is so full of shit they it's from the west so they all do their best to down rank any of the products sent there just like God of War this year with perfect scores in gamingthey made sure a piece of carbord was the number one selling thing in Japan.

    Is it really that shocking??? I mean, EVERYONE knows Conan in Japan. As someone that uses to watch Conan (with subs since my local Japanese channel only had subs) and watched it since my young teenage or preteen years, I was shocked to see so much of Conan when I looked it up online.

    Its a shame that its not really popular here. Its really good. Sadly, I haven't catched up on it due to so many eps and lost track on the manga….

    Thats not surprising most of japanese are nerds and some are hikkimori's they won't understand the beauty of a avengers as their mre into anime, but conan is a good movie but in comparison thats japan and avengers is a foreign movie so they will go to their own movie even if its alittle childish
