The Biggest Selling Manga Issues of 2015

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

I know, I know, 2015 isn’t over yet, but the Oricon charts (think Billboard, but for Japan) have listed the biggest selling manga of this year.

According to Oricon, the 2015 figure is from December 1, 2014 to November 30, 2015 (in actuality, the numbers are collected from November 17, 2014 to November 2015, because obviously, we don’t yet know the total sales numbers for total).


There might be some surprises in this list. There might not. Let’s have a look and find out.

*Oricon didn’t specify which issue.

Remember this only for the year Oricon is marking 2015 and since these are best estimates, there might be some fluidity either way with these numbers—though, I’m guessing not too much.
