TV Asahi Announces Top 100 Manga Voted on By 150,000 Readers

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Television station TV Asahi announced the results of its "manga general election" poll on January 3. The results were decided by 150,000 voters and included both ongoing and completed manga series. The winner comes as no surprise, of course. Eiichiro Oda's long-running One Piece manga was readers' favorite. The adventure series celebrated 1,000 chapters this week with the launch of its worldwide character popularity poll and a full-page ad in The New York Times.

Following behind One Piece was 2020's anime darling, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The series, which was praised by Oda himself, was Shueisha's second highest-selling manga in 2019, second only One Piece. The 23rd and final volume of Gotouge's record-breaking manga sold 2.855 million copies from November 30 to December 6, the most that any manga volume has sold in one week since Oricon began reporting its book ranking charts in April of 2008. The Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train film is currently poised to overtake Spirited Away as Japan's biggest box office earner of all time.

In third place was the shōnen classic, Slam Dunk. The series was one of the top-selling media franchises of 2018 and is strangely often a contender for both "series that should be made into live-action" and "series that should never be made into live-action." Fans of Takehiko Inoue's sports series seem split on the idea.
