One Piece, Dragon Ball top list for series published in magazine since 1968.
I tried to tell people One Piece shatters pretty much everybody. They kept saying Naruto sold the most. I never tried Kochikame but i think i will sooner or later. I pretty much saw all them into animes except Kochikame.
The forum discussion (below the article) was really interesting So Ruroni Kenshin sells well despite it being serialized during one of Jump's darkest ages (Yu Yu Hakusho, Dragon Ball and Slam Dunk ended 94.95 and 96 respectively). Togashi has Yu Yu Hakusho AND Hunter X Hunter on this list. the only mangaka with 2 manga on this list. Araki has had JoJo going for 25 years, I gotta give him respect for that. Plus it is monthly now, I don't know if that has any effect on how often a Volume comes out or not. I am only un familiar with Kochikame, but it's probably gone on even longer than 25 years, right? That's incredible. (Some info here I just paraphrased from the forums just so people can see it here)
Even more amazing is One piece still has 10 more years to go. So it will probably be in the top spot for the next 10+years.
one piece is being milked too much. End that crap already.
Not quite sure you understand the definition of milking a franchise, One Piece is probably the furthest thing from that.
I wouldn't say that it's the furthest thing from being milked but you are right about him not understanding what milking is. Plus One Piece is great right now (in the punk hazard arc, obviously Fishman Island was a bit meh) so it obviously doesn't need to stop.
@deep: Um.. I wouldn't call One Piece milking either. You gotta remember something there's a lot..A LOT of things that haven't happened in One Piece and that's why it'll probably last for 10 more years. Its not because Oda wants more money, its just the way the story goes. There's still so many things that need to happen or be explained like.. -Each Strawhat memeber's goal. -Luffy kicking Akainu's ass. -Luffy kicking Marshal's ass. -Another major character's death. (Probably Shanks or a member of the crew after he finishes his goal.) -Conquering all of the seas. -Meeting Luffy's father. -Explaining how Gol D. Roger became the King. -Getting to Raftel -Finding 'One Piece' or figuring out what it is. Etc, etc.
