    As we just witnessed in just less than a month, One Piece-related sales surpassed the likes of LotR and Toy Story franchises.

    Let's take a look at Oda in Best Selling Fiction Author ranks from Wikipedia and Insider:
    • 7th in terms of minimum estimated sales.
    • 13th in terms of maximum estimated sales.
    • 12th on average sales.
    His place might go up someday.

    His name is there alongside Shakespeare, among others. And in Asia, he's the best seller.

    He deserves to be in Top 3 or at least Top 5.

    In my opinion he works harder than anyone of those in that list. Being a mangaka is on a far different level than being a writer. A writer might take 1 year or 2 years or even 5 years to write a single book. A mangaka draws a chapter each week and must respect the deadline, so he has less time to prepare for the future story and plan things.

    Not sure if we'll see the time when Oda enters the Top 5 of that list. I mean, Shakespeare reached his place after centuries.

    I'm impressed with how high he is! There are a lot of big names on that list I'm surprised he beat.

    Considering we still have 5ish years left, Oda should make a huge jump. The Yonkou wars should be the climax of the series as a whole. As long as Oda doesn't mess it up, all of his numbers should rise (especially the average sales).
