Its a wonder the rest of the mangaka don't just give up and bow in front of Oda's almighty glory.

The figures he gets are astounding.


I'm glad an FMA volume got into the top ten :]

I dropped Kimi a while ago but I'm happy its doing well.

Wow! About every volume from Blue Exorcist is in here! Gotta read it!

And just how long is Nodame Catabile? Did it reach its ending?

Can't believe the first volume of One Piece is on the list. :) Looks like One Piece is going strong as usual.
Also made me happy to see FMA on the list.

Good lord, One Piece. Just... wow.

Also: Shueisha seems to be positively dominating this list, save for Kodansha's big hitters. I realize it's multiple volumes of the same series, but still.

Yay for Hunter x Hunter! No matter how much time off Togashi takes or how low it ranks on Shonen Jump's weekly surveys, it keeps selling over one million copies per volume. Also, it seems Bleach's sales didn't drop as much as people say it did after the end of the Aizen arc.

Originally, it ended with volume 23, but then the author decided to do an encore arc (also known as "Opera-hen"), which was collected in two additional volumes. Fow now, it seems there are no plans to extend it beyond volume 25.

One Piece is becoming bigger with each year.

Really glad about 1 million for Nodame Cantabile.

Awsome, Shingeki no Kyojin is selling 700-900k per volume without an anime adation and without running in Jump!!

It's amazing how this almost hidden away manga quickly gathered such a big audience. Wikipedia says the Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine that it's running in has a circulation of just ~60.000. I don't know any other rookie manga whose new volumes outsell it's magazine more than ten times.

And I'm with the fans here. The story looks very nice so far, the characters are strong, witty and no emotional wracks. Most of all the worldbuilding is superb with all those little gadets and things the author invents for his story. The only part that's not top notch is the artworks.

Looking forwards to next years numbers. Oh and I shouldn't forget to obligatory yay for One Piece Very Happy

The number listed for Bleach 51 is wrong. It's 630,847, not 682,527.
