What’s better than a deranged supervillain? A boring girlfriend.
So says Japan, at least, where the Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend movie momentarily took the daily top spot at the box office October 26.
By the evening, Joker had jumped back up to number one — but for a brief, shining moment, a sequel to a 2015 anime series based on a series of light novels was the top film in Japan. Not bad, Saekano, not bad.
The film, which is called Saekano the Movie: Finale in English, brings back general director Kanta Kamei, director Akihisa Shibata, screenwriter Fumiaki Maruto and character designer Tomoaki Takase for more boring girlfriend action. It’s animated over at CloverWorks and recently got a brand-new preview.
