Is that a low number for Shin Prince of Tennis? It seems low to me. I hope that's not a bad sign, I am actually enjoying it.

One Piece doing quite well... How much was the first printing again? Like 2.5 million?
Toriko sold more than Mago in its second week, though Mago still sold more this round overall.
And I'm amazed how much Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler) sells... No wonder it's getting a second anime.
I'm happy Ane and Medaka are approaching 100k. Great sales for early volumes. One Piece is just staggering. This could end up being it's most popular volume ever. Good article at ANN about this.
One Piece is like an unstoppable force right now. Kuroshitsuji is tempting me to read its manga after all. It will be nice if Kure-nai breaks 100K.
I'm loving this. I can't wait to rub this in the faces of the MB Hate Brigade.Quote:
Am I reading that correctly? If so that is just ridiculous that One Piece takes up more than 25% of the top 200 for a week. I mean volume 1 is, what, 12 years old now? Surely at some point sales will begin to decrease for One Piece. Right? Riiiiiight?Originally Posted by From said article
1.7 million in 2 weeks is amazing. Apparently, it's almost surpassed volume 55.
By the way, which is currently the highest selling volume of One Piece?
Volume 27 is the current bestseller. Sold 2,630,000 in it's first pressing. /Kaiten
Moderator message by: Akiyamayeah, but that's just 1st pressing, volume 1 didn't get that many copies for it's first run

Akiyama is probably correct 90% of books not just mangas have the best seller as number 1. most people would buy 1 and not finish the series. its rare someone buys a volume half way thruogh the series without buying number 1. although second and 3rd volumes might get higher on the charts thats because the series of books is already a hit so there will be more printed therefor more people can buy them in a week.
Ane and Medaka selling quite well.
and Oda makes history again.
the effect of the movie is showing up already
I don't know if it has been mentioned here.
But there's an Oricon Top 200, and One Piece made it in with ALL 56 volumes.

thanks xadyu im really surprised at how well one peice does in japan. i like it clearly more then naruto. viz has just given it the wrong exposure. its seen as a little kids manga here all the 10-13 year olds read it. people my age will be like OP wtf is that. then ill say DL it because viz hasnt published much. and people will like it more then naruto. i know i have. One Peice has really been given the wrong exposure by viz. they set it up for the wrong market. but i guess thats there problem >.<, they should slap stickers all over it saying BEST SELLER IN JAPAN! rather then a little pirate rubber man with a big belly.
