one piece is killing the japanese industry please just die already nobody cars about it anymore


It is the reason many people go buy manga. It even adds to others because people look at others after buying one piece. It saves manga.

I wonder how many copies SnK's new volume will sell...


I would've expected it to sell around the same as the previous Shingeki no Kyojin volume that was on sale for 3 days in its 1st week, Vol.14:

*1 -- *,852,757 *,852,757 **1 3 進撃の巨人 14
*6 -- *,158,342 *,158,342 **1 3 進撃の巨人 14 DVD付き限定版

However, one thing I am curious about is if the debut of Part 1 of the live action movie series in Japan on the Aug 1~2 weekend had any effect on the sales of Aug 3~9 week, especially since Vol.17 was released on Aug 7.


So they count the regular edition and limited edition separately? Still, it sold over 1 million copies in the first three days combined O.O

SnK is a freaking best. I'm expecting at least 1.5 million by the end of the year, if not 2 million. That anime did that series so much good, if only all anime could be as beneficial to the series. It's a bummer the series is ending in the next few years, iirc like in 5 years? SnK's become quite the beast of a series. But with all these spinoffs and stuff, I'd be surprised if they don't milk the hell out of the series long after the main manga ends.

*3. *97,675 *,304,619 Uchuu Kyoudai Vol.26

Nice to see Space Bros still hanging there.
I really need Mutta and Hibito to come back to the TV screen sometime in the near (or far) future.

Hmm…. I’ve been somewhat interested in this manga for sometime now. I might start reading it soon to see how it is.

A look at the weekly sales of Kingdom, just to illustrate just how big its boost is right now. It does not seem to be losing any steam right now.

240,562 May 25~31

126,333 Jun 8~14 
450,574 Jun 15~21

789,846 Jul 13~19 ← Vol.39 sold 207,475 in week 1. 582,371 in backlog sales.
581,069 Jul 20~26 ← Vol.39 sold 183,696 in week 2. 397,373 in backlog sales.
511,941 Jul 27~Aug 2 ← Vol.39 sold 43,729 in week 3. 468,212 in backlog sales.


Since SNK will only release one more volume I'm pretty confident that Kingdom will outsell it this year. Dang, that tv show gave it a boost that most anime adaptations can only ever dream to. Probably unintentionally, lol.

it had a special edition that sold about 70k


Which is still down the previous Volume, but I guess it was expected with Avatar being FTs worst arc ever.

Third week sales for both volumes

Volume 49 sold 370,961 copies
Volume 50 sold 347,983 copies by adding the sales of the limited edition from previous week.

The limited edition probably sold more than 60,678 since last week but we can't see it due to the threshold. So yeah the sales aren't abysmal at all.

Saki, Akame, Jojo,Magi, Uchuu,Kingdom...nice.

This is the current Top 10 based on all sales that we know as of the 37th week.

*1 10,016,228 ONE PIECE
*2 *8,035,892 Nanatsu no Taizai (七つの大罪)
*3 *7,002,240 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (暗殺教室)

*9 *2,640,791 Tokyo Ghoul (東京喰種)
10 *2,579,935 Tokyo Ghoul:re (東京喰種:re)

Kingdom is catching up to Shingeki no Kyojin, but that gap will increase next week when the new volume comes out. Although SnK Vol.17 might do slightly less next week (compare Vol.14 on sale for 3 days vs Vol.16 on sale for 4 days) and make it up the week after.
