One Piece Vol 56 Breaks Records

Well I have to say that this does not really surprise me. I myself love the show, as does my family.

As quoted by Japan Today, "The popularity of a manga comic titled ‘‘One Piece’’ remains unceasing with the circulation of the latest 56th volume put on sale this month totaling 2.85 million copies, marking the highest number for a first printing in the history of comic publications."

One Piece by Eiichiro Oda, has sold 176 million copies since the first volume was put out. It was based on the series that first started in weekly Shonen Jump in 1997. It seems that it is read by just about everyone, no matter the sex or age as it seems to delight everyone.

  1. Is Dragonball Z now second? Cos it seems to me that Dragonball Z was one very long comic during my era.

  2. I think this record is due to the total copies sold for a single Manga release.

  3. @ Dennis, Dragonball is actually not that long compared to other mangas. Actually, One Piece isn't that long either, even though it's still going. The longest is Kochikame, over 1,600 chapters.


Don't just Read and Run, leave me a note about what you thought of the blog!
