According to Oricon News, Toei is hoping that the film’s overall performance will reach the 10 billion yen mark.
Meanwhile, the rating of the film has been mixed. It only ranked third in Filmarks’ first-day satisfaction ranking with an average rating of 3.80/5.0 based on 5,364 reviews. It is rated much lower than Gundam Reconguista in G: V Shisen wo Koete, which took first place with 4.14/5.0 despite being the fifth chapter of the compilation film series of the TV anime. The Reason for the fall in this Rating is Too Many SONGS in the Movie.
