Dragon Ball came in as the top-performing overall franchise for the company with ¥58.6 billion in net sales (up from ¥43.1 billion the same half last year). The company is still projecting ¥80 billion yen for the full fiscal year, down from the ¥97.9 billion it pulled in last fiscal year.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise jumped in net sales from ¥5.9 billion the first half of last year to ¥9.9 billion this half year (eclipsed by the Gundam and Kamen Rider franchises, which pulled upwards of ¥20 billion each during the same timeframe). The company is holding on its ¥14.5 billion forecast for the year, a slight increase from the ¥14.2 billion it brought in during the entirety of fiscal 2018.
