Dragon Ball once again handily came in as the company’s best-performing franchise for the quarter, pulling in ¥28.4 billion (a jump over last year’s ¥25.6 billion in the same quarter); Dragon Ball beat out the number-two franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam, by just over ¥10 billion. The company is holding on its projection of ¥115 billion for fiscal year 2020.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise also jumped from ¥4.5 billion in Q1 2019 to ¥5.3 billion this year’s first quarter, with a similarly-held-projection for the full year at ¥20 billion.
