Demon Slayer Surpassed One Piece, Selling 200,000+ MORE Copies (2019)

Demon Slayer has been dominating the Shounen genre in 2019 since the anime released.

The truth is though – the Manga it comes from was already doing well before the anime came out.

The anime series took it to new heights and now it’s soaring so high that it surpassed One Piece in 2019. Outselling the Shounen king by over 200,000+ copies!

This isn’t surprising when not too long ago – Otakomu reported that bookstores in Japan “panicked” because Demon Slayer was selling TOO much.

“Devil’s Blade” is a bad translation on Google’s part. It’s supposed to say Demon Slayer 😉

Assuming Demon Slayer keeps up the pace and all of the Manga volumes are adapted in years to come, it has a chance of becoming the #1 best selling shounen of ALL TIME.

But that’s yet to be seen. Even still – it deserves a round of applause and a standing ovation.
