AT LAST YEAR’S BEST OF FILM AWARDS AT TIK TOK, VIOLET EVERGARDEN: THE MOVIE SURPASSED KIMETSU NO YAIBA’S FILM
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train is the highest grossing film of all time in Japan. Worldwide, it has raised more than $ 388 million dollars.
It seems that she is a candidate to compete in any category of awards, and incidentally, win them. But there is one who has already lost, and that came to light these days. Who beat him is another animated film, and it is Violet Evergarden: The Movie by Kyoto Animation.
VIOLET EVERGARDEN: THE MOVIE ROSE WITH THE TRIUMPH
The numbers achieved by this tape are much more modest. As of January 14, it had $ 20.2 million raised at the Japanese box office.
However, it became the best movie of 2020 on the Tik Tok video platform. That was what the official Filmarks Twitter account highlighted. In second place was Kimetsu no Yaiba, which is made by ufotable, and in third place, Parasite by director Bong Joon-ho.
After those mentioned above, there are other productions in a year of ‘lean cows’ due to the infamous coronavirus. How do you decide which is the best movie? In this case, a panel of judges is not used.
Tik Tok collaborated with Filmarks, which collects opinions of thousands of people about films, whether with live or animated actors, in addition to the typical dramas. So it was the fans who determined the winning film.
KIMETSU’S FILM DOESN’T YAIBA SQUEEZE AT THE BOX OFFICE
Perhaps the most emblematic thing about this recognition for Violet Evergarden: The Movie is that it is a sample of the recovery of Kyoto Animation.
This is after the atrocious attack they suffered a few years ago, in which many of the company’s talents perished. As they say, the studio now ‘rises from the ashes’ like a phoenix, to continue to fascinate many animation fans with its great creations.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train will undoubtedly continue to break box office records, and it truly deserves it.
Ufotable’s animation work is great, and the story conceived by Koyoharu Gotōge is exciting and endearing. Many fans are waiting for the moment to see her in the West.
But Violet Evergarden: The Movie also deserves attention, and this first place will help promote it.
