Surprised to see One Piece up there, thought there was no one left with good taste in America besides me. I wonder what's up with its inconsistent ranking.

Hahaha. I am from NY and loved the comment. OP is actually my favorite manga but just like you I am surprised it actually made it as #1 in USA. I guess finally people here are starting to see the greatness of OP. It just surprise me how USA sales are so different from the World sales. So glad to see its getting more towards the norm.

The popularity of One Piece in the US was thrown back years due to shitty marketing of the manga by Viz, since they were completely focusing on pushing Naruto and Bleach while negleting One Piece almost completely. Then the 4KIDS fiasco happened and this made it even worse. Now One Piece is slowly recovering from that and finally gains more popularity, especially since Naruto ended because many Narutfans who never were interested in One Piece are now turning towards it because they are searching for a replacement.

That 4kids thing was really messy. Honestly I had a very bad perception of OP because of that. I knew about OP before Naruto and Bleach but I had a horrible perception of it and I got into OP much later. I only got into it because lot of people talked and that time I use to read mangas and just follow mangas like now so I thought let me try it out from the beginning and then eventually OP became my favorite but that 4kids dub really give a really bad impression of OP and I really don't get why there is such bad marketing of OP in the US. It annoys me.

Nice to see people have stuck with Soul Eater 'til the end. I didn't even know Yen Press were still around.

Looks like One Piece is finally starting to get the respect it deserves. Maybe there's still hope for the good ol' U.S.A. after all.

It has been in the top a couple of times before, don't really know if anything has changed.

It is definitely rare, especially compared to its ranking in Japan which we're so used to seeing it dominate.

Well this top 10 will be full of AOT's volumes when the second season starts next year. The highest number of volumes I saw was 6 or 7 on top 10 I think.

I honestly had never seen it up there. Kinda surprised really. It's usually SnK, Naruto or some other Manga. I have seen One Piece in the top 10 regularly just not number 1. That's good news though.

Because it doesn't happen often. The volume before this, only showed up in the list twice in the span of a month, it's first appearance being at number 2, first being a BL manga.

This really doesn't mean One Piece is picking up popularity in the US, it's still in the same range of popularity, below the likes of Bleach, Soul Eater, Fairy Tail, Death Note, FMA, Sailor moon etc, let alone Naruto and SnK.

It's best selling volume in 2014 was ''ONE PIECE EAST BLUE 1 2 3'' with 6,424 units, next was vol 70 with 5,855 units. It's not doing as great as other manga from Viz Media.

Vol 2 has been ranking quite a bit too. Vol 3 not. Which sales wise is interesting. Vol 1 and 2 keeps selling way more than 3 and the rest. Ofcourse that's natural but ye would expect that a manga witch such a high instalbase would see high sales over a larger part of its spectrum, well at least during slow weeks. Though with the titan omnibus and the pack deal even those numbers are skewed. Anyway nice week, Op on top ? not my pick but good for the fans.
