Oricon Rankings for Gintama Movie 1

The first Gintama movie, which is a rehash of the Benizakura arc, lasted for 5 weeks before leaving the top 10. It placed 4th in the first week before falling to 6th for two weeks. Then it fell to 7th in its 4th week, and finally to 10th in its final week. Its overall performance is impressive for a movie that covered an already animated arc, and although a rehash, the movie also brought in some changes, extras, and more exciting fight scenes which makes it worth seeing to someone who is already familiar with the arc.

All data is gathered from Oricon.
