Today, Oricon, the holding company at the head of a Japanese corporate group that supplies statistics and information on music and the music industry in Japan has announced the 2014 best-selling books annual rankings. The rankings were compiled between November 18, 2013 and November 16, 2014.

As you might expect, Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece tops its manga rankings for six years in a row since 2009, selling 11,885,957 copies in total during the period. But the gap with the second best-selling title, Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan is much smaller than last year. After One Piece sold 2,217,798 more copies than Attack on Titan did in 2013, this year’s gap between the two is only 157,989.

Both series released three new volumes during the period, and One Piece‘s 73rd, 74th, and 75th volumes also dominate the top 3 positions in the per volume ranking. Will the upcoming two animated films, live-action film and the OVAs push the sales of Attack on Titan more and finally send it to the top of the rankings next year? Who knows.Here are the results:
