A few days ago, fans of One Piece, and the world of manga in general, received news about the sales and the popularity that this work still has; just over 20 years after its premiere in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump.
On this, it was reported that One Piece has sold 480 million copies around the world. In 2018 we learned that Harry Potter sold 500 million copies, and although the number is currently unknown, it is known that it has not increased much.

As a curious fact, The ingenious hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha is also estimated to have reached 500 million copies worldwide, but his numbers are more uncertain.
