"One Piece" Tops 2014 Manga Sales in Japan, Again

"Attack on Titan" is a very close second

Oricon, a data compiling company specializing in providing data for the Japanese music/book industry, today announced the 2014 best-selling books annual rankings, which was compiled between November 18, 2013 and November 16, 2014. As expected, Eiichiro Oda's One Piece tops its manga rankings for six years in a row since 2009, selling 11,885,957 copies in total during the period.

 

But the gap with the second best-selling title, Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan is much smaller than last year. After One Piece sold 2,217,798 more copies than Attack on Titan did in 2013, this year's gap between the two is only 157,989. Both series released same three new volumes during the period, and One Piece's 73rd, 74th, and 75th volumes also dominate the top 3 positions in the per volume ranking. Will the upcoming two live-action films push the sales of Attack On Titan more and finally send it to the top of the rankings? Check the top 30 manga series/volume below.
