Japanese publisher Shueisha has produced four million copies for the first printing of the 69th volume of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga. The volume shipped in Japan on Monday.
The 68th volume also received a four million print run when it shipped in Japan in November. The 67th volume set a manga record for the most copies in its first printing with 4.05 million copies. The previous two volumes matched but did not beat the former record of 4 million copies set by volume 64 in 2011.
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.
