Failed to rank, which means its BD sold less than 1,235 while its DVD sold less than 402.

That's sad. I wonder why? Are the otaku not into dirty and smelly girls?

It hits to close to home and they don't want to remind themselves of how greasy, soda laden, and ant ridden they are.

Otakus in Japan hate series which are too real and that remind them of what they are in real life. Which is why The World God Only Knows was a sales flop in Japan too. Foreigners on the other love these series because they can relate to them.

"BD not ranked; need full week data later this week" is what is says.

But aren't there people in Japan that don't let it get to them and just enjoy the anime for what it is?

Pathetic otaku are the only ones who pay the ridiculous prices for anime in Japan.

The sort of otaku capable of doing this is usually the sort with enough social skills to not see Watamote as a reflection of their life, so it's a moot point.
