Probably a few of the top selling manga sell over a million per volume. HxH usually did, but I guess I wouldn't consider that a "current" manga anymore. Bleach does too, over time.
But the top five sellers in Japan are One Piece, Naruto, FMA, Nodame Cantabile, and Nana (not in that order). That's right.
I short hand them as "million sellers" as new volumes always sell that much by the time next one comes out. Bleach and Hunter x Hunter can take a long time to hit that mark, at least over the last few years.
one day I find A list for the top ten for the best ongoing manga sell include only the first printing (i am not sure if it's exact) :
1) one piece volume 27 : 2.600.000 copies
2) nana volume 14 : 2.300.000 copies
3) Detective Conan volume 17 : 2.000.000 copies
4) VAGABOND volume volume 15 : 1.800.000 copies
5) NARUTO volume 31 : 1.620.000 copies
6) HUNTER X HUNTER volume 13 : 1.600.000 copies
7) FMA volume 09 : 1.330.000 copies
7) BLEACH volume 25 : 1.330.000 copies
9) nodame cantabile volume 19 : 1.170.000 copies
10) real volume 05 : 1.150.000 copies
this month (august) 6 manga for the top ten will realese :
Naruto volume 47
Bleach volume 40
Detective Conan volume 65:
Full Metal Alchemist volume 23:
Nodame Cantabile volume 22:

Are you sure all of those are using the same sources? The Shounen Jump ones are from the 2ch Jump Log Warehouse numbers (or something using the same source as the 2ch Jump Log Warehouse).
The Nodame volume in particular seems pretty low, however. I think it's from Oricon's data, maybe?

and for Nodame it's a very populare manga from heiji-sama
- Nodame Cantabile : 22 volumes (30 800 000 copies solded)
it's close to 1.400.000 copies per volume
Be careful; publishers have a habit of "over reporting" how many copies they sold. What Shueisha says it shipped and what it actually did can be two very different numbers.
^Right. I'm not sure how popular either were before I started following sales, but neither seem to have lost readers. Every volume of each series makes the year end top 50 charts.
Oh okay. I wonder if the Big three's sales are proportionate to the time that they have been around. Bleach is the least popular out of the big three and it is also the youngest. One Piece is the most popular and it is also the oldest. One Piece is 14 volumes ahead of Bleach and 7 ahead of Naruto. So might we see Naruto and Bleach sell as much as One Piece (or at least really close) when they reach 54 volumes? At the very least I think Bleach might equal Naruto when it gets more volumes. What do you guys think?
Sorry, I'm not sure it's going to work like that. I just can't see Naruto surpassing One Piece, nor can I see Bleach leap frogging Naruto, Nodame, and FMA. Not at this point. It's sales are to consistent, there has not been anything to lead me to believe it is getting more popular. The only series I can think of that could move into the top 5 anytime soon is St. Young Men, which after three volumes is almost as popular as Bleach and Hunter x Hunter. Kuroshitsuji could too, but it's sales have been steady for a while now.
I didn't think so. I just wanted someone else's input. But while Bleach is remaining consistant, One Piece is increasing isn't it? Man, that series is something else. And on the topic of Kuroshitsuji, it just popped out of nowhere for me. One minute its just another series in GFantasy. Another minute it's selling like 500,000 copies and an anime sequel announced by its 7th volume.
Kuroshitsuji jumped so quickly becoz of its anime (the anime just caught more audience' attention on Kuroshitsuji but the anime itself doesn't follow the manga, so I don't see a strong connection how the anime boosts the sales of manga)
Kuroshitsuji is just a magic/miracle...
next month (September) one piece volume 55 will realese in 04/09
and I swear it will be the most sold by the Oricon ranking for 2 week and meaby can exceded 1.000.000 for the first week
