14th Annual Touhou Project Popularity Contest


The Touhou Project Popularity Contest, 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. Voting is open!


Voting Period: Sunday, January 14th 00:00 JST ~ Saturday, January 20th 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.

Four 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.
Voter Questionnaire - A questionnaire collecting voter data on demographics, game clear rates, game and manga ownership, etc.

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.



Touhoudict is a tool that automatically translates names (currently the characters and works) directly on the voting and results pages. Please try it out!

Here is a translation of the questionnaire.



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.]

Q. My Voter ID email never arrived.
A. It can sometimes take time for the ID to reach the listed email. Also, if you do any mail filtering (even if done automatically through your email service), it may fail to arrive. Please whitelist the domains "@thwiki.info" (for ID requests) and "gmail.com" (for inquiries) so all such emails can go through (if gmail is not whitelisted, even if you make an inquiry, replies may not arrive).
If more than a day has passed, you can resubmit the Voter ID Form using the same email. If you've done all these steps and still don't receive the email, please contact us using the Contact Form or through Twitter.


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. As of the 14th contest they can be voted for.

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. As of the 13th contest they can be voted for, as "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Jacket Girl" and "Dolls in Pseudo Paradise CD Label Girl".


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, but the counts of which songs were voted for will be included in the results.

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.


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.


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_vote14" and "第14回東方Project人気投票" is recommended. Registered participants can put links to these works here.
