Oricon’s Yearly Manga Sales Ranking 2019

I know I should have posted this back then when it was made available through Oricon, but for some reason, I can’t seem to recall why I didn’t – most likely due to other sites which covered the chart for the year 2019, and I thought maybe I don’t have to. Nevertheless, treat this as part of a trial for the upcoming yearly chart Oricon will be making soon. I have this one up to see if the format is good, and perhaps it would be easier for some of you to put it up side-by-side for comparison sake. Let me know what you think of this format.

NOTE: This is for the year 2019, not 2020. The 2020 chart will be out in around 2 to 3 weeks time.

As for the chart, ONE PIECE remains as popular as ever in Japan last year, with all 4 spots at the top completely dominated by the series. Though, Kimetsu no Yaiba was at the time, still rising – we know what has been happening throughout 2020. Shingeki no Kyojin sold a great amount despite the few number of volumes out for the year. The rest are familiar faces with Yakusoku no Neverland, Boku no Hero Academia, Haikyuu!!, Kingdom, One Punch-Man and 5-toubun no Hanayome made good appearances last year. At number 22, you will find 3-gatsu no Lion, its volume 14 sold 687,476 copies in 2019. Its volume 15 though, did not make much of an impact in 2020, however it remains to be seen whether if it really did horribly for the year.

We all have to admit that it was a good year for Kimetsu no Yaiba (likewise in 2020, though better) as its rise in the chart was more visible late 2019. The title sold 12,057,628 copies for the year, edging ONE PIECE by more than a million copies. Kingdom settles for 3rd placing. At number 9 and 10 are Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen and Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken, the two did quite well ending the year with 4,096,492 copies and 3,414,482 copies sold.

From December 3, 2018 to November 25, 2019


ONE PIECE will have a tougher time to dominate the chart for 2020, as Kimetsu no Yaiba will prove to be a steep challenge for the series to overcome. Still, too much focus given towards the two may not be that healthy, as they are a plethora of amazing titles that have made their debut in 2020 that should not be overlooked, such as: Jujutsu Kaisen and Spy x Family. The aforementioned titles have made a huge mark on the charts for the year, with Jujutsu Kaisen and Spy x Family – as per data available – have sold 1,319,372 copies as well as 1,805,877 copies respectively, not including when they were not charted.

The year 2020, remains a rather intriguing one, and I am excited to see how would the charts look like in the next coming weeks.
