Nearly $8 Billion in profit in roughly two years... I-N-S-A-N-E

Although I don't care for Demon Slayer itself, it can't be denied that the success it generated in such a short space of time will most likely never be duplicated in Japan.

This truly is the kind of lightning-in-a-bottle kind of success you only ever see once in a lifetime.

This is revenue I believe. Those goods have manufacturing, distribution, and other assorted costs that will lower the profit, though no doubt it is a very profitable franchise.

Though it was somewhat sluggish to ignite, it was published for a handful years before it exploded(it started in 2016, but boom began in 2019 when the anime aired...).

Yeah, you're right.

Still, that's an insane amount of revenue to be generated in such a short space of time.
