Top-Selling Manga in Japan by Series: 2019

posted on by Egan Loo
Oricon: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba sells 12 million to end One Piece's 11-year reign

This is the first time in 12 years that One Piece has not topped Oricon's annual comic ranking chart by series. Shueisha reported earlier this week that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba sold 10.8 million volumes, while One Piece sold 12.7 million volumes, in the same time period of sales as Oricon's surveying.

Although no single volume of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has yet topped Oricon's weekly chart (the highest was the most recent volume, volume 17 at #2), all volumes increased in sales after this year's anime adaptation. The manga ranked in the top 10 of the monthly series ranking for the first time in April (#5), ranked #1 for the first time in August, and stayed at #1 until October.

This list covers sales surveyed from November 19, 2018 to November 17, 2019.
