Oricon Announces Top-Selling Manga/Light Novel Titles in The First Half of 2018

"One Piece" keeps its top-selling position, "Attack on Titan" closely follows

Oricon, a data compiling company specializing in providing data for the Japanese music/book industry, today announced the best-selling book rankings for the first half of 2018, which were compiled between November 20, 2017 and May 20, 2018.

 

Eiichiro Oda's internationally popular series One Piece has taken the first place in the manga sales ranking for 10 consecutive years since 2009 by selling a massive 3,110,149 copies. As with last year, it was closely followed by Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan with 2,997,049 copies. Meanwhile, Kugane Maruyama's Overlord took the top-selling crown from Reki Kawahara's Sword Art Online in the light novel ranking, probably due to its well-received TV anime adaptation.
