OP sold 2mln in 10 days while previous volume sold 2,1mln in 10 days. It's not good.

2 million copies is still an insane amount, but didn't it use to sell about 3 million in about the same amount of time just one or two years ago iirc? Not that Oda's gold-lined pockets will resent it, but it's still a very significant dip

It happens to all of the manga ever without many exceptions (like special editions, last volume of a long-running manga, like Kochikame's Volume 200, etc...). The drop it's actually much bigger after 40-50 volumes or so when it comes to long-running titles (percentage-wise, only the one which doesn't sell above 200.000 from the beginning, ignoring adaptational boosts if appliable, have less than 40% (and above) less sales).

Yes I'm sure Oda is worried about sales numbers when One Piece volumes are selling more than the other top 10 series volumes combined.
