13th Annual Touhou Project Popularity Contest
(@teno_hito)
http://toho-vote.info/



The Touhou Project Popularity Poll, held by the Japanese Touhou Wiki for over a decade, is a poll open to fans around the globe to vote on their favorite characters and music throughout the Touhou series. If you haven't been following the news this announcement might come as a surprise, but voting opens very soon!

Voting

Voting Period: Sunday, January 15th 00:00 JST ~ Saturday, January 21th 23:59 JST

Voting is done similarly to the previous years. You will need to obtain a voting ID by submitting your email address to the site; you will receive an email with your voting ID included, and when completing any poll you will need to enter this voting ID. There is only one voting ID allowed per person.

Voting ID requests can be made half a day in advance of the polls opening. As such, they are already available as of this thread posting.
Please request your ID before the poll starts if possible, to help take some load off of the server during the voting period. Additionally, as you can vote anytime during the voting period, perhaps take care to save your votes until later during the week.

Please refer to this site for the clock / time by which the contest is operating.

Five categories are available for voting :

In the same order as on the site :
Character Poll - Vote for your (maximum of) 7 favourite characters. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Music Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 10 favourite songs. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Works Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 5 favourite works. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Best Partners Poll -  Vote for your (maximum of) 5 favourite pairings. Your top vote will receive 2 points as opposed to 1.
Voter Questionnaire - A questionnaire collecting voter data on demographics, game clear rates, game and manga ownership, etc.
Here is a translation of the questionnaire.

Here is a list of the candidates that you can vote for in each poll. The top four links send respectively to the list of characters, the list of songs, the list of works, and a list of arranges that will count as the same at their original.

With your votes, you can submit comments about your vote. These will be published on the website once the poll is over. Both your vote and comments can be edited until voting closes.



FAQ

General

Q. Can I vote from my cell phone?
A. You can vote, but support for phones is not guaranteed. If errors occur such that you cannot vote, please vote from a different location, such as a net cafe or a friend's PC, instead.

Q. Do I need to fill out the comment field?
A. Filling out the comment field isn't necessary.

Q. I don't want to fill out all the spots for votes.
A. Vote for as many as you would like, then leave the others unselected.

Q. Can people outside Japan vote?
A. Yes.

Q. Will it be okay if I vote from the same computer as my siblings, etc.?
A. While it's impossible to say with 100% certainty that your votes won't be mistakenly judged to be duplicate votes, if you include the voting reason in the comment, it should be fine.

Q. I have no choice but to vote using a free e-mail address; will it be all right if I fill out the comment field properly?
A. As long as it's not a duplicate vote, there won't be any problem.
Note: Recently there has been a surge in votes from one-time-use emails. In case using one is unavoidable they will not be prohibited, but please be aware that there is a higher likelihood that these may be marked as duplicates or invalid votes.

Q. What is the maximum number of characters allowed for comments at voting time?
A. 200 full-width characters. [or 400 ASCII characters.]

Character

Q. Can I vote for Lily Black?
A. She is included in the "Lily White" option. (Note: In the "Kare Radio" broadcast on Aug 21, 2010, ZUN commented that Lily White and Lily Black are the same character.)

Q. Can I vote for Rin Satsuki?
A. As a character which does not officially exist, she will not be included.

Q. There's no option for the character I want to vote for...
A. As Seihou/Uwabami Breakers characters/ZUN are not characters that have appeared in the Touhou series, they will not be included.
In addition, inanimate objects (Yin-Yang orbs, gameplay items, etc) except for the Shanghai Doll and UFOs will not be included.

Q. Story of Eastern Wonderland's Stage 1 midboss and Stage 3 boss are inanimate objects, so I can understand why they're not included, but can't I vote for other PC-98 midbosses?
A. Considering that they have no proper names and are very poorly known, we have decided not to include them.

Q. Regarding the fairy mooks, will there be separate options for fairy maids, etc?
A. Characters without proper names will be included in the options named after their race.

Q. Can I vote for the girl on the Dolls in Pseudo Paradise cover/label?
A. Taking her popularity into account, there are now votes for "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Jacket Girl" and "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Label Girl".

Music

Q. How will votes for arrangements of original songs appearing on the music CDs be handled?
A. Arrangements will be displayed as separate items on the voting screen, but votes for the arrangements and their original songs will be counted together during vote totaling. Please vote for the arrangement you like the most.
(You cannot vote for both the original song and the arrangement.)

Q. How will "Love-Colored Magic" and "Love-Colored Master Spark" be handled?
A. Please refer to the table of arrangements with different names which will be counted together with their original songs.

Q. Aren't "Bloom Nobly, Ink-Black Cherry Blossoms ~ Border of Life" and "Border of Life" different arrangements of the same song?
A. In this poll, they are treated as different songs.

Best Partners

Q. Can I vote for 3 or more in a group?
A. You can only vote for two as one group.

Q. Does the order of characters chosen matter?
A. The order does not matter. "A and B" will be counted the same as "B and A". The name order when votes are released will be in order as listed in the Character List.

Questionnaire

Q. Regarding the voter survey questions on game clear status, aren't frame drop rates going to be included?
A. We're not being that hardcore in having such strict policies on counting clears.

Other

Q. Are there any plans to include the spell card poll?
A. It will not be implemented this time.

Q. Can I use pictures I've drawn on Pixiv, etc. as publicity images?
A. Publicity is welcome. In addition, including the hashtag "#toho_vote13" and "第13回東方Project人気投票" is recommended. Registered participants can put links to these works here.

Time to vote in this year! Missed last years! Decided to vote for who is on my mind instead of numbered favorites, my list is too messed up to number any character. T^T

Top vote: Kagerou (I expect her to rise a bit in ranks, she's been getting more attention in the fandom since the last one)
Additional: Wakasagihime (fish princess is best princess!), Nue, Doremy sweet, Alice, Kogasa (Sorry Tewi! T^T), Sanae.

I love all of them for varous reasons..but struggled with alice, do i pick alice, satori, or parsee, who do I pick to represent my all time favorite...

Decided not to vote on music, far too many to pick, would end up picking mostly CD ones and never got a chance to hear ZUNs 2 new CDs recently so I can't give a fair assesment.

Who do you think might rise in ranks due to fandom?

EDIT: damnit forgot about Nazrin and Shou, this is why 7 feels so small T^T

Well, having the Best Partner vote again is in commemoration of AoCF, so that's what would be implied, but I think it'd be a safe bet to say that shipping is most likely what it'll end up being anyways.

I disagree with the old guy's mindset in the sense that I find it way too harsh. Furthermore, this mindset would sort of means that every fanbases would be crap seeing how all popularity polls are heavily affected by things such as how well-known a character is (via official material, fan material, memes, videos, etc.), nostalgia, bias, appearance of a character, etc. and I think this is what's sort of funny about the popularity poll. Not funny in a mean-spirited way but... I think it's fair to say the Touhou fanbase is very creative. We got a lot of neat ideas and we're really good at putting our ideas into motion to make games, comics and all sorts of neat things. However, the Touhou popularity poll rarely changes in term of results which is a sort of funny "contradiction".

Anyway, it's a popularity poll and that sort of thing is just for fun and to collect information about the fanbase. It's neat to be able to vote and pick what we like and even if a favorite character, tune or work would be in like, dead last, it wouldn't alter that character in any way. There's no need to get upset about it. One should vote for what they like and take it easy.  :V

The only thing I'm concerned about is some people who are voting might still misinterpret "partners for AoCF" as "shipping pairings in general", so we can expect to see some skewedness in that aspect.

Otherwise, I'm fine with how things are, really. You can't really control what the fandom prefers. Remember, every fan is different and has differing preferences. I like seeing the slight variations in polling results after each popularity contest, I find it quite interesting.

Quick note that the pairings section is meant to be 'what teams you want to see in AoCF' not 'who do you want to smooch', so choose wisely.

Can we get a real source on that? All I found was this on http://toho-vote.info/Rule.php:

『東方憑依華』の発表を記念して、あなたが一番だと思うペアを選ぶ「ベストパートナー部門」を特別部門として設置します。
To commemorate the announcement of Touhou 15.5, we have instituted a special "Best Partner Group", for you to choose the pair which you find the best.

"Commemorate". It doesn't say that they will use the votes for 15.5, or that you should only vote partners for that game.

"Best Partner group" seems pretty clear cut on what it means. Talked with a few others and they voted in favor of 15.5 tag partners.

Caring about the results is unnecessary. Placements barely change in the top 20, and themes/works barely change, as well. I predict this year that LoLK characters will fare much better, but that will be the only major change.

Also in regards to the poll, it were shipping, there would be so many pairings to sift through and it would all just be one gigantic mess. I would hope they're referring to AoCF partners, and I'm pretty sure they are.

Voting in favor of 15.5, agreed. You can do that, voting a pair that you think makes great partners for the game itself. But if the voting was solely for 15.5, I believe they'd severely cut down the list, instead of letting you vote everyone.
For example, one of my votes still goes to Merry/Renko. Aside from being one of my favorite ships, they are canonically two of the strongest partners in the whole series. That doesn't mean they'll show up in 15.5 however.

Well since the roster isn't set in stone the partners could be anyone (we all know not everything but still), it's just there if you want a pair that you think could work, like Reimu/Aya or Kagerou/Wakasagihime! (How that pair would work no idea, maybe we finally get to see a flying fish!)
