*1. 1,566,702 Shingeki no Kyojin Vol.17

This will 100% reach 1.7 million at the end of the year. I hope that it will reach 1.8 million so that combined with the LE, it will be above 2 million copies sold with the other two volumes released.

*6. *,455,993 Detective Conan Vol.87

SNK might will have two or three volumes above the 2 million threshold for the first time (LE+RE), One Piece might have 2 or 3 above 3 million for the first time since 2012 , Naruto might have one 1.3 for the first time (the last volume sold 1.2 million at the half way point) and now Detective Conan might have 3 or 4 above 500k. Lots of great performances this year.

*7. *,*35,781 Overlord Vol.1
11. *,*32,683 Overlord Vol.2
17. *,*18,281 Overlord Vol.4

All of the volumes (1-10) will be on the September list probably.

Besides the anime boost (and part of the sales going to the limited edition), there's the fact that It releases six volumes a year. One Piece; 4 (3 or 5 exceptionally), AssClass; 4-5, SNK; 3.

One Piece would sell 16~18 million (sans backlog) if it had such a release schedule.

Because One Piece has almost every 3 to 4 weeks a break of 1 to 2 weeks.

I don't read Nanatsu no Taizai but I guess the average per week is 24 pages against One piece's 20.

Bleach had a special Volume named Bleach: 13 Blades it probably sold like 100 k
Also when a new volume releases it boosts the backlog sales for a week or 2.

Obviously not..what the fuck.

Their release is different because they are under different publishers..and different magazines.

I feel like OPM is going to shatter some of its own rankings in the upcoming weeks because of the anime adaptation.

And this:
> 13. *,312,760 Dungeon Meshi Vol.2

Dungeon Meshi starting to get more attention.

No not because of that, because i think if Oda wanted to put out 25 pages per chapter he would and we would have 5-6 volumes per year like 4 years ago and before it. But since he has health problems since 3 years or so he puts out less pages on a chapter and takes a break every 3 to 4 weeks, so we get 4 volumes , or sometimes even 3 like last year.

TlDr:
A volume needs at least 184 pages(at least a Jump one) Oda sometimes make the volume have more chapters than normal(already had volumes with more than 240 pages) when he feels the volume needs to end in a certain chapter

Yep, some years from now One Piece has having around 10-12 chapters per volume instead of the normal 8-10. Added to the fact that One Piece has around 40 chapters per year instead of 48, due to Oda breaks, you get only 4 volumes instead of the 5-6 possible volumes.

I don't really understand why Shueisha accepts this kind of volumes, given that it would make a ton more money if each volume was shorter. This same thing happened with Dr. Slump(1st manga of Toriyama) making the manga only have 18 volumes of potentially 25 or more.

My bad, didn't read the topic. But still it looks a bit confusing without total sales. It could have been better to post them for compraison
