Will Suzume no Tojimari become the highest grossing Anime film of all time?

Suzume fourth highest grossing anime

Suzume no Tojimari has recently secured itself the position of the fourth-highest-grossing Japanese film worldwide. It is also the eighth highest-grossing film in Japan as per box office collections. While it manages to climb up the ranks in such a short duration and break records after its initial release, the question is whether Suzume would soon overtake Demon Slayer: Mugen Train and become the highest-grossing anime film of all time.

Recent records have shown that Suzume is doing extremely well in theatres worldwide and is the fourth highest-grossing anime worldwide. While this may seem like an obvious consequence of its advertisement, we will analyze how this Makoto Shinkai creation reaches beyond the normative aspects of popularity.

Why has Suzume become a worldwide sensation? 

Suzume is loaded with emotionally stirring and visually pleasing scenes. While it is a Makoto Shinkai trademark to make movies as such, this anime surpasses the general expectations of the audience. While it has been a far bigger sensation outside Japan, it is also surprising how the movie has left the audience astonished with its splendid storyline.

In a way, Suzume has also been the fourth highest-grossing anime due to Makoto Shinkai’s reputation. After major hits like Your Name, Weathering With You, and 5 Centimeters Per Second, Suzume comes out as an emotional rollercoaster.

It is to Makoto Shinkai’s credit that we find such soulful creations of animated movies. It is only to his credit that the natural elements are so perfectly blended with human emotional endeavors.

Suzume: breaking records and expectations

Suzume has been breaking records at a lightning pace. The anime has collected more outside Japan in the last few weeks. The film also broke Makoto Shinkai’s previous records with Your Name and Weathering With You.

The story of a girl who has the ability to open doors to other worlds and her adventure in search of a lost soul clearly won the hearts of the audience. Suzume has broken all records and has surpassed One Piece Red in a relatively shorter period. This tells us that Makoto Shinkai has the ability to captivate his audience not just with his visual storytelling but also with his immersive realism.
