Top 10 Best Selling Manga in Japan 2013

It's the end of year, as usual I will give information about who is the king of manga in Japan in a year. Not different from last year, Eiichiro Oda manga One Piece is still the king of manga with total sales 18,151,599 copies, lower than last year with 23,464,866 copies.

The newcomer this year, Hajime Isayama manga Attack on Titan or known as Shingeki no Kyojin cut through to second position with total sales 15,933,801 copies. Actually Attack on Titan is not newborn manga, the first manga  released in Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009 and get the first tankobon volume in 2010. I predict the incredible sales of the manga is because the popularity of the anime adaptation, just like Sword Art Online which the light novel achieve incredible sales after get anime adaptation.
