At least get the name right. Log in to Reply 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! 🙂 Log in to Reply I stand corrected Demon Slayer** The anime gods will kill me. Log in to Reply 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.] Log in to Reply Serious question to the more die hard enthusiasts : Does dragon slayer actually come close to being a better movie than SA?
