Dragon Ball and One Piece Dominating for Toei Animation

Dragon Ball and One Piece are doing some major damage (in a good way) for Toei Animation. Just this week the giant Japanese animation house released it’s earning for the first half of their 2011 fiscal year.

From April 2011 to September 2011, 6 months, Toei made $46.74 million United States Dollars (USD) from just One Piece and Dragon Ball Z licensing and video releases! In all of 2010 they made $81.57 million USD from those two franchises in licensing and video releases. At the rate they are currently going, Toei is on pace to make almost $94 million from just two franchises!

If the numbers are correct, from all of their franchises and endevours combined in 2010, Toei Animation made a total of $342 million USD (26 billion yen). They project to make $381 million USD (29 billion yen) this year when it’s all said and done! Congrats Toei, keep up the awesome work!


Dragon Ball doing the damn thang since 1986 , I love how these two titles are snatching wigs.

Despite the fact that I've already read the title of the post, the picture at the top still made me go "? Something's wrong with that picture..."

Congrats to Toei Animation. Toei has Sailor Moon too right?

So pressed that the flawlessness of all anime DB has a picture of that bargain bin trash of an anime One piece. It's like having a cowboy bebop picture with FLCL in it. They just don't belong together. So glad that OP flopped here in the west. The production and sub/dub were just as horrible as the character development and designing.

But congrats to Akira for still slaying even after 25 years.

bargain bin trash? just look at your icon...

The only thing I agree is that the dub is horrible. Other than that, OP is flawless for me

That's cause 4Kids picked it up. 4Kids just sucks in general, no wonder they ran out of business. The Funimation dub is decent.

Who cares? One Piece is still the best manga/anime out there. And the SALES proved that.

bargain bin trash? lol no. it's practically outselling the entire manga industry.

why do people like Dragon Ball

You never got into DB? Where's your childhood?
I equate DB to Sailor Moon and Power Rangers. Not stuff I'm interested in anymore, but it took up a big part of my childhood.

Been watching DragonBall since my childhood then I started watching One Piece when I was 11. Love both of them

Congrats to Toei. Keep up the good work!
Now, with all that money, you'd think they'd come up with a better looking Kamen Rider for this year. ;__;
