posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Japanese publisher Shueisha has produced four million copies for the first printing of the 68th volume of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga. The volume is shipping in Japan on Friday.
The 67th volume shipped in Japan on August 3, and with 4.05 million copies, it set a manga record for the most copies in its first printing. The previous two volumes matched but did not beat the former record of 4 million copies set by volume 64 last November.
Over 280 million copies of the entire manga series have been printed; One Piece has had the highest number of copies printed of any Shueisha manga series in Japan.
