  1. Wasn’t Kimi no na wa more successful than Spirited Away? I think Spirited Away wasn’t the highest grossing anime when Demon Slayer dropped.

    EDIT: very interesting, the German Wikipedia article says Kimi no na wa was indeed more successful, the English Wikipedia on the other hand says it wasn’t. Still a mystery! 🙂

  2. While I love the Demon Slayer series and enjoyed the Mugen Train movie, I’m still a little shocked by this. Spirited Away is such a great movie.

    [Edit: Dammit. Demon Slayer, not Dragon Slayer. I knew the title was wrong and yet my typing fingers still betrayed me.]

  3. Serious question to the more die hard enthusiasts : Does dragon slayer actually come close to being a better movie than SA? Or is this an example of a “bots taking over the like button” making us think it’s as worthy of a film?
