Jujutsu Kaisen dominates franchise sales in Japan in 2022 despite having one-fifth the volume numbers as One Piece



In news that shouldn’t surprise anyone given multiple reports of year-end numbers, Jujutsu Kaisen was the best-selling franchise in Japan for 2022. The numbers tell a clear story of a series that’s practically printing money at this point. Shonen Jump manga series are always huge, but Jujutsu Kaisen is currently an unstoppable giant, bolstered even further by anime Blu-ray sales

To drop the numbers, Jujutsu Kaisen made a hair over 10 billion yen (about $77 million). We already knew in November 2022 that Jujutsu Kaisen had beaten One Piece (and everything else) when it came to most copies sold. All of this, and Jujutsu Kaisen has only had 21 volumes out in Japan at the time of writing. It doesn’t come close to matching the staggering 104 volumes of One Piece, but it defeats the manga juggernaut.

Despite these impressive results, there may not be much steam left on this money train. Jujutsu Kaisen mangaka Gege Akutami recently hinted that this could be the manga’s final year. Volume 22 will be out in Japan in March, which means the series may end with Volume 24, one step ahead of Demon Slayer.

Chainsaw Man found itself at number 11, but that will likely change in 2023 as the anime was released quite late; it is expected to affect sales this year.

While the jujutsu kaisen numbers are incredible, it’s interesting that a non-Japanese media piece managed to catch on. Top Gun came in at number 24 thanks to Top Gun: Maverick dominating the box office worldwide.
