Japanese Comic Ranking, January 31-February 6 (Updated)

posted on 2011-02-09 17:55 EST
4 One Piece, 3 Shingeki no Kyojin, & 3 Gantz books in top 30

The 61st volume of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga sold 2,086,080 copies between its first official day of sales (February 4) and February 6. It is the first book to sell over 2 million copies in just three days since Oricon began reporting its book ranking charts in April of 2008. 40 of the manga's 61 volumes were also in the top 100 chart this past week.

Propelled by recent media exposure, all three volumes of Shingeki no Kyojin stayed in the top 30 for another week. Similarly, the previous weekend's opening of the first live-action Gantz film boosted sales of not only the latest Gantz manga volume, but also the first two volumes into the top 30.
