Top 10 movies in Japan last weekend 

NeoEra posted this list, which I have to say is pretty interesting:

1. Haunted Mansion new
2. Detective Conan: Magician Of The Silver Sky
3. Crayon Shin-Chan: Arashi O Yobu! Yuhi No Kasukabe Boys
4. Kill Bill Vol. 2 new
5. Casshern new
6. Cold Mountain new
7. Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King
8. Ocean Of Fire (aka Hidalgo)
9. Peter Pan
10. Quill

Like your typical otaku anime film, Appleseed dropped from the top 10 like a rock while the general audience anime films hung in there pretty well. And more people thought Haunted Mansion looked like a worthwhile film to check out than Casshern? Boo!

I'm not familiar with all of these but I do know that Detective Conan and Crayon Shin-chan are animated movies based on popular series (mystery and comedy respectively). Hmm.. I think watching Casshern and Kill Bill 2 in a row would be quite the head trip. Also interesting to see Peter Pan up there. I'm not sure when it was released in Japan, but it does seem like the sort of thing that they'd "get" more than in the US.
