* ''Manga/KimagureOrangeRoad'' is yet another classic manga and anime series (one that had a heavy influence on the SliceOfLife genre) that has failed to find an audience in the West. While [=AnimEigo=] was able to make it work in the U.S. by selling sub only discs to a niche audience, the series is the worst selling anime of all time in the UK. The manga wasn't translated into English until 2014, and was released digital only.

* ''VideoGame/TadpoleTreble'' is a rhythm platformer about the musical misadventures of a young tadpole. Kickstarted with $34,250, 4 years of development by indie software developers, and a score of 90 on Metacritic, it has... less than 100 reviews on Steam one week after release. Note that Steam is the main place to get Tadpole Treble for the PC - even the low-bass toad sung so! Unfortunately, a lot of people simply don't want to play a rhythm game starring a tadpole.

* Creator/DreamworksAnimation's ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'' received mostly positive reviews from critics, but cost $145 million to produce and only made $103.4 million at the North American box office. The total worldwide gross was $306.9 million, but it's considered a box-office failure for Dreamworks since the total gross did not meet the cost of production and advertisement - they ultimately lost $83 million on it. In fact, the losses forced Dreamworks to lay off over three hundred workers!
