The Top 60+ Best Selling Manga Of All Time Might Surprise You (2023)

Manga has always dominated when it comes to sales. Look at One Piece, the best-selling manga of all time. It sells more than comics like Spiderman, and other manga have reached high levels in the sales department.

Table of contents

We’ll look at the top sales for:

  • Manga that sells over 100 million.
  • And manga that sells LESS than 100 million (50 million, etc).

And most of the manga will be related to:

  • Shounen.
  • Action.
  • Isekai.
  • Supernatural.
  • Comedy.

And other genres that make it to these kinds of numbers in the first place.

From 1969 to 2023 and beyond.

Let’s get into it.

Breaking down the results:

anime magnifying glass smug anya | https://animemotivation.com/best-selling-manga-2023/

  • One Piece is the #1 selling manga, which isn’t a surprise to anyone.
  • Many top sellers on the list are old-school manga.
  • Some manga on the list is relatively unknown compared to series like Naruto, Dragon Ball, etc.
    • Golgo 13 is an example. This is in spite of its top 10 seller list.
  • If you never grew up in the 1980s or 70s, you may not know half of the manga on this list.
  • My Hero Academia has come a long way to reach its seller status. And Attack On Titan even more so (not far off from reaching Naruto).
  • NANA is a surprise on this list, at least for me. The anime itself isn’t the most known, but the manga is a different story.
  • Great Teacher Onizuka proves it’s an OG with sales to back it up (just like City Hunter and more).
  • Detective Conan isn’t the most praised in the anime world, but the manga absolutely dominates.

And of course, Fullmetal Alchemist has done well to hold its spot after so many years, despite only having ONE season (aside from the FMAB anime remake).
