ANN writes: "Film journalist Hiroo Otaka reported on Monday that One Piece Film Z earned 1,372,050,000 yen (about US$16,339,700) this past weekend, and thus topped Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo for the highest opening weekend box office in Japan this year.

One Piece Film Z's opening weekend box office was 132% higher than the last One Piece film, One Piece Film Strong World. That earlier film earned 1.038 billion yen (US$11.7 million) in its first weekend, December 12 to 13, 2009." (Anime, One Piece Film Z)

With such high praise and equally high grosses for these movies, I'm really hoping that means we'll see them both here in the states in 2013.
