“Your Name” is the Highest-Grossing Anime Movie of All Time

Your Name has topped Spirited Away!

Spirited Away

Your Name is now the highest-grossing anime movie of all time thanks to strong international showings in China, South Korea, Thailand, New Zealand, and Australia.

Your Name has grossed 37.8 billion yen ($331.6 million) in the worldwide box office, beating out Spirited Away's previous record of 31.4 billion yen ($274.9 million).

While Your Name is now the most financially successful anime movie of all time on a global scale, it still have not passed Spirited Away as the highest-grossing anime movie in Japan. Your Name has earned 23.2 billion yen ($204 million) in Japan compared to Spirited Away's 30.8 billion yen ($269.8 million).

Still, it's amazing to see the international success of Your Name as it tops Spirited Away in total box office numbers. However, this will only lead to more debate about which is the best movie to watch.

So, I want to ask fans, which do you think is the better movie?
