Namco-Bandai has posted a ¥34.583 billion (approximately $318 million) profit for the full fiscal 2016 year, compared to a ¥37.588 billion profit last year.


Dragon Ball came in as the company’s second-best-performing franchise for the year, pulling in ¥34.9 billion, a significant jump over last year’s ¥19.4 billion. The company is projecting the same ¥34.9 billion for fiscal year 2017 (with a stronger second half of the year). Outdone only by Gundam this year, the Dragon Ball franchise managed to eclipse One Piece for the first time since fiscal year 2010.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise also jumped from ¥5.8 billion last fiscal year to ¥11.6 billion this year (with the first half of the year alone hitting ¥5.6 billion). The company is forecasting a slight drop to ¥11.0 billion for next year.
