<i>One Piece</i> sells more than 20 million copies -- just this year

It's well-established that Eiichiro Oda’s comedy-adventure One Piece is wildly popular, setting one record after nother in Japan, where the 59th volume received a 3.2 million-copy first printing. Once that figure has sunk in, here's another one for you: One Piece has sold more than 20 million copies this year alone -- four times that of Naruto, the second-highest selling manga.

That news arrives just as it's confirmed that, beginning next week, Oda is taking a well-deserved month-long break from the series that's been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump virtually nonstop since August 1997.
