Oricon reveals 2020 ranking few hours ago. Here is the top 10 visual chart:

Kimetsu no Yaiba is the first series in 13 years of Oricon's history occupies top 22 spots. Additionally, 3 light novels ranked 1st, 2nd, and 5th in the book ranking. Let's see if Shueisha will confirm that KNY is their best selling manga of 2020 or they will shamelessly "praise" OP again.

Do we even need confirmation at this point tho? I mean One Piece didn't release as many volumes as normal but still don't expect them to sell halfway as kny this year.

Well it actually makes sense.

It's a pretty simple story so everyone can get into it.

Set in ancient Japan, so a pretty popular setting.

It's been about a year since anime was released.

Then it ended.

Then the movie got released. Probably one of the first
movies to release after covid.

So all the success was concentrated within a couple of years' span. It's something similar to what happened to Avengers, when infinity war was released. And endgame became the most earning movie of all time.

Anime was it's best 20000 years ago, when cavemen drew art with real depth.
Modern anime is all garbage. I miss great old days of anime.
