If you grew up watching cartoons, you’ve probably seen at least one anime series. While anime is extremely popular in Japan, it took some time for the art to spread elsewhere. Anime franchises are now valued in the billions of dollars, and many are household names. Koyoharu Gotouge wrote and drew this Japanese manga series. From April to September 2019, a 26-episode anime television series adaption produced by Ufotable aired in Japan.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is perhaps one of the most amazing entries at the top. It only made $2.8 billion in revenue, but that’s after only launching in 2016, making it one of the fastest-growing companies we’ve seen. Tanjiro Kamodo, a would-be demon slayer, is inspired to battle after his sister is transformed into a demon.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train, a sequel film, was released in October 2020 and went on to become the highest-grossing anime and Japanese film of all time. In October 2021, a second season of the anime series began, adapting the “Mugen Train” arc from the film and covering the “Entertainment District” arc from the manga. The manga had approximately 150 million copies in circulation as of February 2021, including digital editions, making it the seventh most popular manga series of all time.
