*Wonders if One Piece will break the world record AGAIN for most books sold.* Damn you Harry Potter!

Has it really been so? Where did you get such statistics?
I found only "list of best-selling books" on wiki, and it seems there is no manga at all.


One Piece is currently ranked as the best-selling series of all time in manga history.[3] It enjoys a very high readership, with more than 230 million volumes of the series sold by 2011-Wikipedia

I think the list of best-selling books does not include manga, I'm not really sure though. I'm just assuming hehe,.

ONE PIECE your the best!!!!!!

Sweet. I was worried that the nuclear attack in this chapter would not sit well with the Japanese after the nuclear debacle but it seems I have nothing to worry about
