All of a week/month's WSJ releases are on the same day. So this latest One Piece, the Nisekoi, the Shokugeki no Souma, the My Hero Academia, the Toriko, the Gintama, all of those were released on April 3.

I had to go back 18 months to find the last OP volume released with 3 days worth of sales in the tracking period :

animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-11-06/japanese-comic-ranking-october-28-november-3

That's a 128k increase which is about 8%.

Toriko is a marathon runner, so don't worry about it's sales early on, it will sell about 500K in a year.
*6. *,142,424 *,142,424 Toriko Vol.34


Digital sales are taking away ALOT from physical copies, that's why they look like they're under performing but they're actually not.

animenewsnetwork.com/daily-briefs/2015-04-03/one-piece-manga-no.77-gets-3.8-million-print-run/.86695

This is especially true for bleach, who should have a more substantial digital following than one piece.

Wow, you have to go down to 14th to find something not published by Shueisha.

The buildup of the current arc has really gotten people rolling to find out what's happening. Can you imagine what will happen when this series gets to volume 80. The number of tankobon sold so far should not be surprising considering they printed 3 million copies just for the first print.
