That's true. It just seems like it would be harder to incorporate Team Yell in the anime if they don't include Marnie. They could write around cheering her on for the Galar Gym Challenge fairly well if they have her taking part in the PWC instead, but I don't see Marnie being in the anime. It wouldn't be impossible, especially when the anime tends to introduce some of the video game rivals fairly late, if at all, but when they already have Morpeko without including Marnie, it just seems less likely.See, for me, I'd be surprised if we didn't get the regional evil (well, in Yell's case maybe "antagonistic" is a better word) group since, well, we've gotten every single main series group so far. It would just be too weird if the Yell-Dan got zero representation in the main series.
Sorry about that. I'm just used to seeing a headline on Serebii's homepage every year after the newest movie comes out in Japan, but I noticed that didn't happen in December.Dogasu said:I mean...I'm sitting right here y'know
I wonder if they'll save the movie for the fall instead. I assume that part of the problem for the December box office performance was Demon Slayer being such a massive hit, but the competition might be rough regardless for that month. I don't know if fall will be any better for theaters though.Dogasu said:Toho wouldn't have known about the box office decline on Day One. The decision to not have a trailer at the end of Movie 23 is most likely a case of OLM / Toho just not being sure when they'll be able to release a new movie more than anything else. Everything's too unpredictable now. A July 2021 release, at this point, is highly unlikely, and we're now seeing from Movie 23's box office performance that December wouldn't really work out either.
I chalk up the lack of buzz online about the film to 1) the longer than usual promotion period (532 days!) and so people just got sick of hearing about it, and 2) the fact that Japan's borders being closed right now means that the only English speakers able to watch this movie (and therefore report on it) are those of us who were already in the country when COVID started.
