Top 15 Decent Anime That Sold Terribly

Folks over at biglobe.ne.jp have compiled a list of anime that have sold an awfully low amount of copies- mostly less than 2,000 or so copies per volume- and have arranged them in a top 15 with Kaichou wa Maid-sama! taking first place. Although not highly recommended titles, most of these shows are decently good. Why they have sold so horribly is up for debate, and there could be a number of reasons why, such as other popular titles being released at the same time. The Ranking below has semi-official sales numbers for each volume of disc release, with "unknown" indicating an extremely low number- too embarrassing to say. 

1. Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (1,707) 
 2. Taishou Baseball Girls (1,392) 
 3. Chihayafuru (Unknown) 
4. Kurenai (1,922) 
5. Kamisama Dolls (1,355)
6. True Tears (2,079) 
7. Croisée in a Foreign Labyrinth (1,234) 
8. Kill Me Baby (Unknown) 
9. Princess Jellyfish (1,321) 
10. Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit (1,997) 
11. Sora no Manimani (1,231) 
12. Shiki (1,225) 
 13. Softenni (783) 
14. Wandering Son (1,007) 
15. Sasameki Koto (Unknown) 

Out of all of these I've seen True Tears, and Softenni and they're not bad at all. Kaichou wa Maid-sama has to be the most surprising one on this list however.
