Toei Raises Earnings Forecast
Published by 28 February 2010, 12:24 PM EST

In an economy where we hear about nothing but studio closures and layoffs, it is shocking to hear that Toei has actually raised their earnings forecast for the current year. Projecting ¥1.2 billion up from ¥1.0 billion in net profits, it would seem that the most recent One Piece movie (Strong World), which was written by the manga’s author Eiichiro Oda, performed much better than expected. We do not see any information relating to Dragon Ball in this earnings forecast, but it would interesting to know how the sub-license of Kai to FUNimation (as well as the property’s own success in its home land) contributed, if at all.
