Boruto series is the continuation of Naruto series. Honestly speaking, I feel that Boruto has fewer fans compared to Naruto and that Boruto has somehow disappointed the fans of Naruto. While we can’t say for sure how much of that is actually true, what we can analyze is how much Boruto is doing in terms of making a profit and earning money for its creators. I went through a few articles and gathered information to provide you.
Earnings of ‘Boruto: Naruto the Movie’
Take a look at this article which was written just a few days after the Boruto movie was released. According to the article, Boruto movie earned 680 million yen in just 3 days. For those of you who talk in dollars, that’s a whopping 6 million dollars of earnings. How much Boruto movie earned for it’s creators is really a huge amount, but it doesn’t stop here. let’s look at another article from the same source, just 16 days later, you can find the article here. As you can see, the movie made 2.02 Billion yen in almost half a month. Again, for those who are talk in dollars, do the math, that’s a whopping 18 million dollars. Boruto is also the highest earning film in Naruto franchise. I guess what i wanted to say has been conveyed. Atleast for the movie, we can say that it was a great success for the creators.
Let’s come to Boruto Anime and Manga
Now, let’s have a look at how Boruto Anime is doing in terms of earnings and making money for the creators. If you want to know the exact amount that it earned you can have a look here. This article states that Boruto was among the top 5 anime for TV Tokyo in terms of sales and profit in the year 2017-18. This alone is enough to show how much Boruto is actually making for its creators and so the series is a huge success, at least in terms of earning money. But, if we see the present, the reality is that Boruto is actually not as popular as it’s ancestor series Naruto and is selling fewer copies compared to many other manga series. Whether it’s a failure as a story or not, that’s something I’ll leave up to you to decide.
