The Most Influential Shonen Jump Manga
The Most Influential Shonen Jump Manga Today
Currently, Kimetsu and One Piece are the dominant forces in Shonen Jump.
Before delving into this article, let’s rewind to 2004 and revisit the four most iconic manga of Shonen Jump: Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece. However, since then, many years have passed, and currently, Naruto and Bleach have long concluded. So, what are the three biggest manga of Shonen Jump now? If we look at sales figures, two newer manga have claimed the top 3 positions.
Let’s take a look at the four most popular Shonen Jump manga at the moment! One Piece has been a cornerstone in Shonen Jump’s sales for many years. In 2019, there was still much debate about whether One Piece remained the best-selling series. The issue is that while Shueisha claims One Piece has been their number one series for 13 consecutive years, Oricon reveals that Kimetsu no Yaiba has actually surpassed One Piece this year.
Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that One Piece remains a powerhouse. Oricon data also shows that One Piece still ranks first in sales for each volume, with four One Piece volumes making it to the top 10 best-selling manga volumes in 2019. At the beginning of 2019, Kimetsu no Yaiba didn’t even make the top ten best-selling manga list by Oricon. However, when the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime was released, the series suddenly exploded. The astonishing success of the anime caused Japanese fans to rush to buy the manga, leading to many bookstores in Japan selling out of Kimetsu no Yaiba.
By the end of 2019, Kimetsu no Yaiba had risen to become a “powerful” Shonen Jump manga like One Piece. According to Oricon statistics, it even successfully overtook One Piece as the best-selling manga in 2019. Before Kimetsu no Yaiba’s sudden breakthrough, The Promised Neverland stood as the second-highest-selling Shonen Jump manga in Japan, right after One Piece. The story of Emma, Ray, and Norman attracted a lot of reader attention. At the end of 2019, The Promised Neverland still held strong as the third-best-selling Shonen Jump manga, surpassing My Hero Academia and Haikyu!, two formidable opponents in previous years.
Yes, the top three manga in Shonen Jump right now are One Piece, Kimetsu no Yaiba, and The Promised Neverland. Not only in Japan but manga readers overseas also greatly appreciate these three works.
However, there’s a unique issue: Kimetsu no Yaiba is currently at the top of the list. But Tanjiro and his friends are facing Muzan, meaning unless there are new developments, the end of Kimetsu no Yaiba is imminent. Similarly, The Promised Neverland seems to have reached its conclusion, as some antagonists have been eliminated, leaving only one major goal. If these two manga end in 2020, the top three most popular Shonen Jump manga could once again change.
