Top 10 Best Selling Manga in Japan 2011






For you who are curious about the Top 10 Best Selling Manga in Japan 2011, I have the list for the top 10.  As I expected, One Piece manga get the first position with 37,996,373 total copies. Unlucky for bleach manga this year because thrown from Top 5 for last year to posititon 8 this year and of total sales decreased slightly from last year. Different with bleach, Blue Exorcist rocketed to position 3.
For publisher achievement, Shueisha with their shounen manga such as One Piece, Naruto, Blue Exorcist, and Toriko still dominate the top 5.

You must be patient to wait it, because if manga published every day, you will feel quickly bored
