What do you mean with again, did One Piece had the Record some time?

Yes, according to Oricon.
http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/2033249/full/

As of January 2014, One Piece vol. 61 was the best selling book, all category (novel, light novel, manga etc) with 3.718 million (and still counting) copies sold ever since Oricon started collecting data about books in April 2008. But on January 23, 2014, The novel The Eternal Zero (Eien no Zero in Japanese) surpassed this with 3.765 million sold copies and has only been increasing the gap thanks to its popular Live action movie adaptation which was released in December 2013.

But remember, this is just since 2008, so its possible that some older One Piece volumes (1, 2, 3 ...) or even Slam Dunk or Dragon Ball volumes have sold more.

A historical war drama about some Japanese kamikaze pilot in WW II (you read the synopsis in that Wikipedia article I just linked).

Wow man thats impressive for One Piece and i think volume 1 of One Piece is the bset selling book in japan.

I'd be surprised if any one piece volume that wasn't well ahead of Eien no Zero in Jan 2014 could overtake it again. The series sold almost 1.5million volumes during 2014 as well - although some of these would have been before the date when it overtook one piece, you can be pretty confident that it's over 5 million by now.
True. Maybe One Piece's very last volume can sell 4 million copies but 5 million is pretty much unreachable at this point.

edit: corrected "series" to "volume" - I don't know why I put series...

Seems like KnB is still doing well. Hope for some adaptions for these~

And Barakamon is doing quite well too, they should make a second season once there's enough material.
