Ratings, DVD sales, merchandise, toyability. WHO GIVES A FUCK? If you like an anime series and no one else does, don't force it on them. Topics like TV ratings and DVD sales are only useful to marketers and franchise planners. As fans and consumers, why not just enjoy what we like. Also, don't be influenced by numbers. If you like it, that's good. If not, watch something else. End of story.
