One Piece is more popular as a manga but Naruto is way more popular as a whole franchise.
They both are meh though.

when one piece sells more a year that the rest of the top 10 manga's combined, it doesn't matter about the franchise for instance the Naruto video games the ultimate storm series all 3 of them only sold half a million whereas the one piece game sold over a million in the 1st week in japan alone the only anime and manga that makes more money that one piece is gun dam and evangelion, i can hear the bragon ball people crying right now at the thought of one piece being more populat than dragon ball, one piece is the most popular manga in HISTORY over 50 million units ahead of the 2nd most popular and thats just one piece's japanese sales

Of course somebody with a name Amaterasu would say Naruto is popular as a franchise. It's a reason OP sells better than Naruto. Tell me what part of Naruto is more popular.

Only reason Naruto gets more games because its ninjas and the whole manga is about fighting and special moves. It's quicker to do a fighting game than an adventure.

Another reason you probably think its more popular is because more the west like Naruto more.

Cheers to Oda, I guess. Those are crazy numbers in only four years, and almost equals the lifetime sales of it's biggest current rival.
