Your Name (Kimi no Na wa.) has earned over $4 million at the North American box office since it debuted on April 7. This is just under half of the revenue Spirited Away made in North America, which was $10 million. However, Your Name has had led less marketing than Spirited Away, which was back by Disney, and did not get an Oscar boost.
Funimation has been hosting screenings of the film in the original Japanese language with English subtitles and English dubbed formats.
The North American box office continues to add to Your Name‘s record global numbers, which are currently at $353.60 million. It is currently the highest grossing anime movie of all-time.
Your Name is the latest film from Makoto Shinkai. It follows Mitsuha Miyamizu, a high school girl who is bored of rural life and dreams of living in Tokyo as a handsome boy. Meanwhile, Taki Tachibana is a high school boy living in Toyko and is trying to juggle his student life with his part-time job. One day, the two end up swapping bodies, but their memories fade after each swap is over, which leads them to communicate via notes while searching for one another.
Your Name originally premiered in Japan on July 3, 2016, at Anime Expo and was only projected to gross 1.5 billion yen ($13 million).
