Anime fans have sought to identify those anime which sold atrociously (in this case less than 2,000 or so copies per volume) despite actually being quite good, although in the case of some of their choices whether everyone would agree these pitiful sales were undeserved is another matter…

The ranking (with the semi-official average sales figures for each volume of the disc release – “unknown” generally indicating sales so embarrassingly low that figures were never published):

1. Kaichou wa Maid-sama! (1,707)

2. Taishou Baseball Girls (1,392)

3. Chihayafuru (Unknown)

4. Kurenai (1,922)
