posted on by Egan Loo
One Piece's 11th straight time at #1 with 4 books, followed by Kimi-tachi wa Dō Ikiru ka, 3 Attack on Titan, 2 Hunter × Hunter, 4 Kingdom

One Piece attained the top four spots on the annual comic ranking chart. It is the 11th year in the row that a One Piece volume has topped the chart — a new record. One Piece has also attained the top three spots for the 10th year in a row. This is the 11th year in a row that One Piece as a whole has topped the annual comic ranking chart by series.

In addition to the comic ranking chart, the manga adaptation of Genzaburō Yoshino's Kimi-tachi wa Dō Ikiru ka (How Do You Live?) novel ranked #1 on the general book ranking chart with 1,528,286 copies. The same book inspired the title of Hayao Miyazaki's next film.

This list covers sales surveyed from November 20, 2017 to November 18, 2018.
