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...

WOw... One Piece owned them all o-o''

Jul 17, 2011 9:31 PM by SoraKuro

One Piece is untouchable, no one else even gets a look in.

Bleach shouldn't even be on there.

Jul 17, 2011 12:10 PM by Rei-chan

/Looks at rankings

One Piece is first?

Holy cow, I didn't even see that coming. :U

One Piece will have a rival when One Piece stops being amazing.

Which won't ever happen.

One Piece needs a rival.

Jun 12, 2011 5:39 AM by MictoN

Jun 12, 2011 5:29 AM by micaharu

wow the shounen manga r doing so great i'm really glad for one piece

Jun 1, 2011 11:45 AM by Mr_Gutts

OP rules the manga world ! And Gantz in 2nd? I expected Naruto to be 2nd.

*4, *2,613,851 Shingeki no Kyojin - This manga seems really interesting but i dont wanna start reading this now because scanlations are really slow. I wish it gets more atention soon enough.

Jun 1, 2011 11:24 AM by AceIII

holy shit one piece! good thing i started reading it last summer, Im almost caught up and man has it been awesome!

Jun 1, 2011 9:44 AM by WyattEarp

fuck ye its nice to see Naruto belongs to the top picks because Naruto is getting so interesting now a days

Jun 1, 2011 5:40 AM by j0x

One piece deserves these sales... Volume 61 has sold 3million copies! I think this a record in Japan...

WTF OnePiece vol 4 and 5 are in top 50
and vol 61,62 is at the top

Overall, Gantz > Naruto


well there was a huge marketing campaign at the start of the year by Shueisha after OP reached 200 millon prints which explains why the earlier vol. still sales with ridiculous numbers^^

gantz obviously sold a ton because its movie and stuff came out.

Shingeki no Kyojin was not popular until vol.3 came out in nov and over night it started a incredible sales run and took over from FT as Kodansha number one manga.

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.

Jun 1, 2011 12:06 AM by Jure

It's nice to see Kimi ni Todoke up near the top. :)

May 31, 2011 11:30 PM by kokocho

Wow, what a domination by One Piece...
The other things being sold are mostly the expected, I never knew Shingeki no Kyojin was that popular, though...
