"Demon Slayer" Sharply Lifts Cinema Spending in Japan

   Tokyo, Nov. 18 (Jiji Press)--Spending on watching movies in cinemas has recovered sharply in Japan thanks to a blockbuster movie from the "Demon Slayer" popular manga series, it was learned Wednesday.
   According to a bimonthly survey by major credit card issuer JCB Co. and data analysis firm Nowcast Inc., movie theater spending for the second half of October rose 41.8 pct from the pre-coronavirus crisis period of latter half of January, after suffering a 55.7 pct plunge in the first half of October.
