Normally, If you were to of printed say a record breaking 3.4 million units of a manga for a first run. You'd think you would be pretty safe to have a surplus for a good long time. Well, not if that book you were publishing was One Piece Vol. 60 by Eiichiro Oda. This volume in the long running manga series came out like gang busters on it's very first week of release. As reported by Oricon(Japanese corporate group that monitors sales and supplies statistics for items such as CDs, DVD, manga, ect.)One Piece Vol. 60 sold 2,094,123 units in only FOUR DAYS (Nov. 4-7). This shatters the record that was held by One Piece Vol. 59 that sold 1,852,541 in first week of August. 
 
This part of the story covers the tale of how Luffy and Ace became brothers, introduced us to the missing brother Sabo, and gave us our first look at Luffy's foster mother Dadan. It filled in some of the gaps of Luffy's past and put into question his very dream of becoming the King of the Pirates.

One Piece OP 13 - One Day Tops Charts!

One Piece hasn't just been showing strong in the sales charts for the manga series. Even music from the anime series has won some honors late this same year. The song for the thirteenth opening of the One Piece anime "One Day" by The ROOTLESS sold 26,240 copies to hit Number 3 in the Singles Charts for October 18-24, as recorded by Oricon. This marks The ROOTLESS' first ever appearance on the Top 10 charts.  
  
  
The opening song first appeared One Piece Episode 459 and aired on Sept, 18 2010. This has covered the Marineford Arc in the series. It was a major turning point for the franchise with an ending that literally shook the very world of One Piece and the fans. The anime arc is currently still in progress and being streamed on FUNimation's official site, and Anime Vice has full coverage of every episode in the arc with screenshots in the profiles.
 
One Piece wasn't the only anime to get in the Top 10 Single sale for that week. Four other anime songs also appeared.

A well deserved statistic, One Piece really does deserve to be the best shonen anime right now.

Good or bad is all a matter of taste. Though, I do agree that One Piece is quite good.

While I am probably the last person to speak well of VIZ. Even I'm not so blind to just wildly say everything they publish is horrible. One Piece is among their least altered series.
 
It's the only series that they publish that tempts me to relax my VIZ boycott, but I still don't.

Now, now. Let's all play nice. No need for name calling or anger. This is good news worth celebrating. Everyone should be involved. We do ourselves ill service by separating ourselves into cliques.

If it's the manga, I would suggest sticking to scanlations. VIZ is infamous for their censorship and alterations of pretty much all they publish. They take manga stories and try to turn them into children's stories.
They don't alter One Piece as much as they do many other series. I just don't think they are a  publisher worthy of support from anyone.
 
The anime is a different story. FUNimation is doing a superb job. They have many of the episodes available to watch on their official video site, and they stream the latest episodes an hour after they air in Japan with subtitles.
Check out the Anime Vice profiles. I keep them pretty well filled out.
