Toho Animation and Production I.G's partnership is currently ruling over the world and consolidating the anime format's reign in the entertainment industry. The film features the anticipated showdown between the underdog Karasuno squad and the Nekoma's effective ground-breaking strategies on the volleyball court. According to Kogyo Tsushin, the beloved anime film, seeking to expand the TV adaptation's storyline, grossed 11.05 billion yen (US$74.23 million) after selling a cumulative tally of over 7.71 million tickets since its February opening.

After raking in its latest weekend collections, the Haikyu film is rejoicing in its grand status as the 35th highest-grossing film of all time in Japan. On top of that, it has also become the 15th highest-grossing anime film on the same chart.

Haikyu The Dumpster Battle box office collection

That's not all. The sports anime movie opened in mainland Chinese theatres on Saturday, and consultancy firm Artisan Gateway's data shows that it has shot to the top of the country's domestic box office despite playing in cinemas for only two of three weekend days. Leading the Chinese box office, the Haikyu film scored $9.8 million (RMB69.4 million) during the June 15-16 weekend.

Following the example of the 27th movie in the Detective Conan franchise, Detective Conan: The Million-dollar Pentagram, the first of the two-part Haikyu final film, is the second highest-grossing Japanese film of the year so far. Moreover, it proudly assumes the 21st place on the 2024 Worldwide Box Office chart, having collected a whopping revenue of over $86 million ($86,991,520), according to Box Office Mojo.
