    Those are just the sales for a week. It can very well be that the One Piece volume is longer out since Naruto's and therefor has leveled off at lower sales now

    You would need to know the exact publishing dates to make accurate comparsions (e.g. Naruto's and OP's sales in week #3 after they were published which isn't the same week for both of them).

    In Bon's case it's chosen since he, as a tranny, got no female agent on his side. Wheareas all male agents are called "Mr. x" (x = number) all female agents are "Mrs. y" (y = holiday). Therefore, Bon's called "Mr. 2 - Bon Kurei", combining both those elements. ^^

    Regarding the tankou sales numbers, it's no secret that One Piece is currently the most popular series in Japan. Newest volume charted for like..6(?) weeks in the Oricon top 30 with over 1.7 Mio. books sold.

    Ah...well that explains it then. I didn't think about it in terms of his name having to correspond with a number and holiday.

    I may be mistaken, but I thought One Piece has pretty much always out sold Naruto, no? Does any current running manga outsell One Piece when it comes to tanks?

    One Piece is number one. Nana comes closest. Since debuting at number 1 the week ending March 16 volume 21 has sold 1,351,356 copies. I've never seen it out sell One Piece, but there's no doubt Nana is the second most popular manga.

    NANA? eh... I never thought a shoujo manga could compete in the same level with shounen when it came to sales. especially because shoujo like Nana get churned out once a month. hmm.. interesting.

    Nana's huge. Nodame Cantabile, Full Metal Alchemist, and Naruto are the only other million sellers; all three are a bit behind OP and Nana.

    People are forgetting Bleach as well. That's got a million sellers, but I doubt it will sell more then Naruto or any other manga which has sold more then naruto.

    If Bleach has ever sold a million copies of a volume it took months to accumulate. The five I listed hit a million copies in a month or less, and does so with every volume. Bleach is a best seller, but not in that strata.

    I see, you meant in a month. I was just talking about it's whole history, I think in it's history it has sold over 50 million. Hmm..

    So Naruto is getting close to it's 100 million sales, and One Piece ( I don't read) is reaching Dragonball'z sales which is 150.

    Re: Otaku Cafe Hangout

    One Piece will over take Dragon Ball within 2 years just by sheer length. It will PROBABLY be the best selling manga of all time. Once it gets past Dragon Ball, I don't think that it will ever fall behind again. Kochikame MAY end up selling more than either, but that's a matter of whether or not it actually lasts so long that it can outsell One Piece, which should last for another 8-10 years, hopefully. Kochikame DOES have a pretty good chance of outselling Dragon Ball, but again, that's due to sheer volume. the series is over 160 volumes long, after all.

    Naruto has a CHANCE of beating Slam Dunk, but that's it, and even that's a bit of a long shot. But either way, it's the 5th best selling Jump series in history, and that's something to be proud of. Then again, it may eventually feel a threat from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, thanks again to sheer volume. That tends to help with volume sale numbers.

    Naruto could outsell Slam Dunk if it continues selling at it's current pace. Maybe two more years worth of volumes to join the 100,000,000 club.
