Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie is a success! Since it’s July 28th release in Japanese theaters, it has had gross sales of over 1 billion yen ($12.7 million USD)! In order to commemorate the milestone, Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto, has drawn a picture of Naruto and his alternate reality equivalent, Menma!

Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie has had a 177.1% increase in viewership when compared to last year’s movie, Blood Prison. At 1.37 billion yen (about $17.4 million USD today), only the very first movie in the series, Naruto the Movie: Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow, had a larger gross.
