The marketing survey firm Oricon reported that Eiichiro Oda’s (尾田栄一郎)One Piece pirate manga set a record for the most volumes of manga sold in one year since Oricon began posting its ranking charts in 2008. During the period of November 22, 2010 to November 20, 2011, One Piece sold 37,996,373 copies.
