The Biggest Selling Manga Issues Of 2015

The Biggest Selling Manga Issues Of 2015

I know, I know, 2015 isn’t over yet, but the Oricon charts (think Billboard, but for Japan) have listed the biggest selling manga of this year.

According to Oricon, the 2015 figure is from 1 December 2014 to 30 November 2015 (in actuality, the numbers are collected from 17 November 2014 to November 2015, because obviously, we don’t yet know the total sales numbers for total).

There might be some surprises in this list. There might not. Let’s have a look and find out.

*Oricon didn’t specify which issue.

Remember this only for the year Oricon is marking 2015 and since these are best estimates, there might be some fluidity either way with these numbers — though, I’m guessing not too much.


  • Lol the number is unreal. Oda sensei reign supreme after so many years and no one is close to beating him yet.

    • Well, also take in account that the Dressrosa arc was really strong, I’d dare to say the second or third best in the whole series history.

        • Enies Lobby for me. That moment with the ‘Hats on the wall, Robin staring at them in awe and disbelief that they came to save her…

          • I sort of consider them in one arc lol. I mean they start from water 7 and went to save robin and back to water 7 to recruit Franky.

          • Yeah I’m in the same boat.
            Everything just flowed into motion after Water 7 up to and including Enies Loby.
            I haven’t read much since just after Fishman Island… now I gotta catch up lol.

  • Wow I had no idea Seven Deadly Sins was so popular. Dropped it back when volume 2 came out but if its selling like hotcakes then I gotta keep reading
