Comes to no surprise that One Piece continues to dominate the charts, with the 20th Anniversary Film on the way in August and new Merchandise coming in to mark the occasion, it’s no wonder it scored a top spot in 2018’s Best Selling Manga list with 8 Million copies sold. It has been going strong since 1997 with it being first serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. Has your favorite made the list? Leave us a comment below and share your thoughts with us.
