Top Manga Sales in 2011 by Volume – OP, Naruto, Bleach Take 17 of 50

Posted on November 30, 2011

Japanese analytics company Oricon has not only released the top selling manga by series in 2011, but they’ve also released the top 50 most sold manga by volume. Below we’ve listed the top 10, followed by the top selling volumes of our 4 favorite manga series here at Anime Games Online – One Piece, Naruto, Fairy Tail, and Bleach. Actually, just One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach occupy 17 of the top 50 slots. Fairy Tail is represented only once.

One Piece, however, dominates the list with 7 of the top 50 spots, including the top 4. The funny thing is the very first One Piece manga, which was released back in August 1997 (over 14 years ago), is on this 2011 list! It’s at 50, but it goes to show the series is still clearly gaining new fans. Naruto has 5 volumes in the top 20, but none after that. Bleach, on the other hand, has 5 volumes in the top 50, with the best selling at #18.
