‘No Longer Heroine’ Overtakes ‘Attack on Titan’ at Japanese Box Office

TOKYO — “Heroine Shikkaku” (“No Longer Heroine”), climbed atop the Japanese box office this weekend in its second week of release. Based on a best-selling comic by Momoko Koda about the love troubles of its title teen heroine, the film earned $1.95 million on 196,496 admissions from 268 screens, with Warner Japan distributing.

This was only 12% percent down from last weekend, with teenaged girls accounting for most of the audience. “No Longer Heroine” is now expected to finish near the $25 million mark.

“No Longer Heroine” bumped “Attack on Titan: End of the World,” the second of a two-part action/fantasy epic, distributed by Toho, after only one week at No. 1. Playing on 427 screens, the film took in $1.3 million from 112,487 admissions, compared with $2.7 million from 237,016 tickets for its opening frame. Even this latter figure was down 45.7% from the opening weekend of the first film, which bowed on Aug. 1.

Also in its second week of release, Disney’s “Ant-Man” recorded $1.1 million on 96,575 admissions to hold onto the number three slot. There were no new entries to the top 10, reflecting distributors’ decisions to open their strongest films prior to the Silver Week holiday, which ran from Sept. 19 to Sept. 23.
