In this year 2022, it’s not just animated series that have been talked about. Animated films were also the center of attention, and in many ways. Titles like Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, Slam Dunk The First, Suzume no Tojimari are the perfect example.
That said, the titles that hold the attention this time are the films One Piece: Red and Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween.
Conan is more popular than Luffy
Who has never heard of the adventures of Monkey D Luffy, a young boy who took to the sea in order to realize his dream of becoming the king of the pirates. After more than 25 years of existence, the One Piece manga is undoubtedly one of the most popular franchises in the world, if not simply the best.
But in terms of longevity and popularity, the Detective Conan franchise has nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to One Piece. During this year, the two franchises released, a few months apart, their brand new animated film. On one side we have One Piece: Red. And on the other, there’s Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween.
In terms of numbers, it goes without saying that the One Piece film is dominating the debates this year both in Japan and abroad. However, a recent poll initiated to find out the favorite anime film in Japan this year has brought to light an astonishing fact. Detective Conan: The Bride is at the top of the ranking and therefore ahead of One Piece: Red.
