The animated film continues to successfully earn its way into the global marketplace
The anime Suzume Closing Doors continues to gain momentum at the global box office. The animated film has not yet been released in North America, but already boasts an impressive $256.18 million, making it one of the top five highest-grossing anime in history.

The project has grossed more than $104 million in Japan alone, and its success has given it the opportunity to dethrone the anime Van Pis: Red, previously ranked fourth in the global rankings. Ironically, to become the third highest-grossing anime, Suzume Closing Doors will have to push back another hit from director Makoto Shinkai, Your Name. After that, only Studio Ghibli's Gone With Ghosts and Demon Slayer: Infinity Train will be left ahead.

What's the anime Suzume Closing Doors about?
The action is set in various disaster-stricken locations across Japan, where she must close doors that cause devastation. The protagonist's journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) when she meets a young man who tells her: "I'm looking for a door." Soon Suzume herself finds such a door standing upright in the middle of the ruins. Reaching for the handle, Suzume begins to open one by one across Japan, unleashing death upon all nearby. The girl must close these portals to prevent further disaster.
