Dragon Ball has sold 230 Million worldwide. So 150 Million in Japan and 80 Million in the rest of the world.
The official site for Battle of Gods said so. Here is the ANN article:...

Just wanted to say that one should never ever use Mangastream or Mangapanda as translation sources. Usually there are more likely wrong than right.

Fujitora bombed him with meteors and showed absolutely no mercy

Well the Reverie is probably a meeting of all the leaders of the 169 countries/Islands that belong to the WG. The original founders of the WG were 20 and 19 of them became World Nobles. The World...

I am one of those people that argues that quality does indeed sell but please let me clarify what I mean with it. With quality I mean being good in what it tries to be at least at some point in time....

I searched a thread in AP forums because I remembered something and found it
According to Greg Oda once in an interview with the Liar Game...

Ok I feel obligated to say a few things regarding this ridiculous power level discussion.
The first thing is about Law. For some reason everyone here assumes that Law was as strong (or weaker)...

For US American sales I googled a bit and found this site:
This guy analysis bookscan reports every year. It is an interesting read.
February 27, 2012 05:47 PM
Let me guess. You were an Anime only person and then you switched to the Manga at some point?
You missed the Cover stories. Oda does them very often. They usually explain what happened with certain...

You could also ask why don't they make is seasonal or why don't they animate it better. The answer to why a company does what it does is MONEY.
Why should they do a filler arc? Will they gain more...

Can somebody tell why they are STILL pimping the hell out of Kuro? I could understand it when it was the only sports series and they wanted to at least establish ONE sport series. But now there is...

Well I don't know how you define huge but WSJ has a female readership of 20%. That makes around 600 000 female readers of WSJ.
My personal theory is that Mago simple isn't anything special. It...

The eating scene was animated by Tate. He is one of the best Animators OP has. Some people don't like his drawing stlye.
Here is a video composition of scenes he did. Not soley for One Piece but a...

Anyone remember the "oh god I screwed up, let me invent a deus ex plot device" explanation of Oda regarding how mister 3 could float even though he ate a Devil fruit?:
Now he made it "canon"....

Series that have the cover BUT not a color page are usually around that spot.
Here are two examples:
January 05, 2012 06:21 PM
I think we are not on the same page.
In this scene Moria took a punch from Jinbei.
In this scene Magellan took a punch.
Both have white eyes and it SEEMS they are KO. Both are not
Because in this...
January 05, 2012 03:32 PM
I'm not disregarding any facts. It was not 100 Shadows Moria took but 1000. This is a big difference and Moria was surely much more tired than Luffy after getting hit with dozens of punches with the...
January 05, 2012 02:12 PM
I spoke in general. I said those people are underrated by a lot of fans. Moria is not taken seriously by a lot of fans. He is more taken like a joke villain and in general considered the weakest...

Do you know what the difference between titles like:
Emperor, Pirate King, World strongest swordsman, world strongest man etc.
and titles like:

I pretty much agree completely with Kaiten.
How female characters are portrayed is heavily depending on the genre and the demographic. In most Shonen the Women are either the “princesses in the...

How many days had those WSJ Manga time to list?
December 01, 2011 01:19 PM
I took the five longest running series in WSJ(minus HxH and Kochikame) to be able to so the “long time trends” of the series.

You are right that Mangaka get paid by the page and that they get more money for CP BUT from what I understood (could be wrong) they get their main income from Volume sales. New Authors get 10% per...
