The top-selling manga of the year were announced by Oricon and Jujutsu Kaisen takes the top spot.
Coming in second was Tokyo Revengers, followed by Spy x Family coming in third. The fourth spot goes to One Piece and closing out the top five is My Hero Academia
Jujutsu Kaisen Takes the Top Spot
Jujutsu Kaisen was released in 2018 and has been a major hit ever since. The series sold over 12 million copies on 2022 alone! It is nowhere near to becoming the best-selling manga of all time but it is a great start. One Piece is sitting safely at the top with over 500 million copies sold in over two decades.
Spy x Family has also seen a lot of success in the previous year as it sold over 10 million copies in 2022. The manga was released in early 2019 and has benefitted with the anime adaption of the same name that was released earlier this year. The second part of the season was released in the fall of 2022.
After One Piece, the sales of the manga drop significantly. The manga also sold over 10 million copies this year and the next manga on the list, My hero Academia sold over 5 million copies. That shoes the popularity of the top four manga and what is even more impressive is that One Piece is much older than the three other manga as they were released with the past five years.
Just as books have had a good year, manga also has been doing well as it becomes more and more mainstream. With the ridiculous sales numbers, it is easy to see just how popular they are not only in Japan, but all over the world. Have you read any of the manga on the list? Let us know in the comments below!

Yep, started One Piece last year and will be starting up again on it in January. Seen a bunch of positive reviews for SpyXFamily and maybe some year I’ll read it. But between One Piece and Full Metal Alchemist, my manga slots are full for the next several years.
Oh yeah, they are pretty long
