I did expect OP to win by great margin and it seems that when this year is over, OP will break his own record of 32 million copies sold in 2010. I did not, however, expect to see Gantz on 2nd place. It's also funny because there are no Gantz volumes in top 50 volumes of 2011. I guess those two Gantz movies really did help with manga sales.
It's also very nice to see all 4 volumes of completely new manga there, I am talking about Shingeki no Kyojin, some people are really hyping that series.
oka just for the funof it: Gantz +Naruto + Shingeki no Kyojin + Fairy Tail + Bakuman + Kimi ni Todoke + Gintama + Bleach + Toriko = 22.243.449 One piece 23,366,030 yeah thats how overwhelming one piece was. oda most be quite happy... and loaded xD and has gotten fat xD

Complete SJ and shoujo mainstream yawndom domination, Gantz and Shingeki aside. Ugh.
It surprises me that Shingeki came out of nowhere and sold so well when it's more seinen than shounen, in terms of its content. At least it proves that even something rejected by SJ can still sell...
