I'm surprised with the relatively poor sales of the Canon M. Here in Japan, it was heavily advertised. There were ads all over the trains and buses--and even had celebrities endorse it.

I'm not all that terribly surprised.  It's a brand new system with only a couple of native lenses and there really isn't anything special about the camera.  I don't see any reason why someone would choose it over the superior offerings from the competition unless they already own a bunch of Canon lenses.

But don't forget that it's only been available for about half a year.  If you double it's percentage to simulate a year's worth of sales it comes in ahead of the Sony NEX-7.
