Doubt it will get that high, that year had the first half of One Piece ending, anime 10th anniversary, 10th movie with massive hype of it being done by Oda that in general better manga sales (industry is still good considering digital makes about 50% of Jump series volume sales and aren't reported)
I can see that and heck I can see it happening by voleume 94.
Yea I feel like it’ll set a record for something. My money is on first week sales record.
There are a series of species that are sapient but not human. So far we know of:Is carrot a bunny lady or she has the bunny fruit?
The whole "animal people" (non devil fruit) thing is weird, is it like Dragonball where theres a pig dude and you just roll with it?
I ask because at the start of skypea (well jaya technically) there is that salvage monkey crew and that dude is either a actual talking gorilla... or a incredibly racist take and I dont want to think Oda would do that >_>
Don't forget whatever the hell Morgans is, dwarves, and maaaaybe kappas
Don't forget Longlegs.
I'm leaning towards Kawamatsu being a Fishman, but we'll see.
I think the underground is more so for lore and wolrd building, doubt they will play a significant role now that we are getting closer to the endY'all think those shady underworld peeps will ever be more important in the story? I say this coz I just saw 2 pictures side-by-side of in chapter 589, Luffy and Ace beating up these 2 rando thugs
Then in chapters 675 and 692, we see 2 people who have the same hat and headphone combo and one even seems to have a similar fluffy collar among the shadowed figures of the Underworld
My first thought was "big if true that's pretty cool"
I wonder if the Underworld will get more involved in the story in the future
It's as much as what volume 92 sold in 7 days+preorders, but in 4 days. But the last time a volume had 4 days of sales in its first week was for volume 87, and it sold 1.5M. Volume 75 also had a 4 days first week, and sold slightly less than 1.8M. So, there is still a decline, but not as steep as volume 92 made it look (Volume 92 was the first volume to not reach 2M copies sold before leaving the top 50 since volume 55. In fact, it still hasn't reached 2M copies to this day).
Records can be tricky because of the difference in the number of days of the first week, but currently, volume 66 holds the record for highest first week sales with a bit less than 2.3M in 5 days. Volume 67 holds the record for the highest first-print for any book with 4.05M copies. So while marineford was what started this trend of breaking records with every new volumes. It's currently the last Fishman Island volume/the first Punk Hazard volume that hold the big records.
