Avengers: Endgame Fever Isn’t Affecting Japan So Far; Here’s Why

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are no match for anime’s super-sleuths in Japan’s cinema week of 5 May and onwards.

While Avengers: Endgame‘s opening weekend in the country was at number one, the film was taken down a few notches the following weekend thanks to the latest Detective Conan movie subtitled “The Fist of the Blue Sapphire”.

On top of that, Cinema Today reported that Pokémon: Detective Pikachu surpassed Avengers: Endgame during the week of 11th and 12th May. Keep in mind that the twenty-third Detective Conan film was in its fourth week in the country, while Avengers: Endgame was on its second weekend. Detective Pikachu was on its second weekend.

This contrast in what Japan likes -which is anime and great live-adaptations of anime/game properties- prove that not even 2019’s most-anticipated Western comic book film can make a dent in the country’s esoteric pop culture barrier.
