Done.
Wish I had more spots. How long has it been 7?
Let's hope my girls see at least one rise up the list. The thrills of seeing who moved the most is quite fun to engage in, even if it doesnt amount to much.
May your 1st vote do great, /jp/
>>
>>41219809
That's weird, are you sure you put in the right ID? I voted for the characters so far, tried correcting, and it's there as I put it in.
>>41219893
For me, 7 spots for characters feels a bit too much, compared to just 5 for works and 10 for music. 5 would be alright if it was just the official games, but it's also print works...
>>
>>41219930
Correcting the vote allows me to edit my choices, but if I click on the icons of the three voting categories it wipes my choices.
>>
>>41219945
You mean you send the vote, then click the voting category icon again and get a blank form? The form isn't saved as far as I know, why would it be?
>>
>>41219955
Okay. But I saw in the /v/ thread that red boxes appeared over the categories that were voted for, but no red boxes appeared for me. I even tried a different internet browser.

How long do we have to vote?

I guess with everything in mind, limiting it to 5 works can feel rather small. I did have a no nonsense approach to it and just put in my Top 5 games, although I love certain music CDs quite a bit. Music's always hard and on a whim a lot could have changed minus like, 2 or 3 tracks. The rest comes to me as it does, thinking about how great it is and just putting it in.

Yeah, putting the games in is probably the best choice. But only 10 spots for music is just not nearly enough, I could put in 10 from a single game. Especially baffling since there's much more music than there are characters. But eh, what can you do.

I voted for the ones I came up with when told I could only claim 7 or 8 Touhous as wives and be believed. As for why I didn't think of Hecatia, probably because she feels more like a boss lady than a love interest. Also I find despite her design being really sexy most of her art is so-so.

It feels like the majority of franchises either end up with fans of this mentality or the other extreme. There's lots of games lately where the reboots earn the series a lot of new fans, and that for them defines the series, but for something like Touhou characters from the first ~5 Windows games will always be popular because they're so well-established and already have a lot of content. EoSD in particular has always stayed relevant and gets a special level of love as the first Windows game.

It's just a lot of characters from newer games only ever have had a single appearance then never get brought up again. If it was as simple as old thing good then letty, wriggle, and the prismrivers wouldn't be so far down it is just they only ever appeared once and then rarely are mentioned or referenced again beyond background cameos. But then look at Yuuma who in their first poll did decently well just cause their game was recent, give it time though and if they are never mentioned or referenced they will fall off hard in a couple polls too. The more characters there are in touhou the more characters there are that are not appearing in things so that trend hits newer characters harder.

Youmu didn't get away with voter fraud this year.
>>
>>41296243
Youmu won fair and square
If anything, this year's poll is the one that had fraud.
>>
>>41295948
Not the anon you were talking to. After going through the poll I found:

Over 50% of voters got into touhou from 2014 onwards.
Over 50% of the voters were 19 or younger.
Hidden Star in Four Seasons was the game most voters haven't played.
The Embodiment of Scarlet Devil was the game most voters have played.
1/3 of voters don't care about the games.

Seems like newer, younger fans are more interested in older touhous, which is why characters from EoSD and PCB have all gone up in ranks, except for Daiyousei, Lyrica Prismriver and Youmu, though every character that overtook Youmu is even older than her. Also, 1/3 of voters know only about characters that get a lot of exposure, meaning older, established characters as well as characters from the latest game.
So, there are three voter groups: players that know all characters and can vote for any (though they probably will vote more for high exposure characters), casuals that will give most of their votes to high exposure characters, and newer players that only know about older characters. How it ends up is that older, established characters have a huge advantage, while minor, older characters have and advantage over minor, newer characters. Also, important characters from newer (but not newest) games, such as Keiki or Chimata, fall because most of their votes came from casuals that voted for them when they were current. They stop falling after a while, if you check characters from LoLK or HsiFS their ranks are mostly stable when compared to last year.
>>
易者 - 104
why...
>>
>>41296894
I think that issue is that we reached a feedback loop with touhou.
A younger fans are well...zoomers who are easily influenced and generally need to be spoonfeed, while not looking for things themselves. Because of that they will mostly interact only with part of fandom that someone else. This makes their experience very hermetic and is the reason why so many of them know only about popular things (Fumos, Heart-throbbing adventure etc).
Then they become "veteran" fans and influence more people essentially continuing the loop.
When i talk to people im often surprised that dedicated fans never heard about things like "Advent Cirno" "Night sparrow in love" "Tag dream" and many other works that i consider to be essential for touhou. They are completely unfamiliar with classic artists like Morito Hon or Millet soup. And thats because noone pointed them to those things.
They basically lock themselves in the small loop of repeated memes and few popular characters. This results in those characters to have even more attention from artists which makes problem even worse.

I had no idea the fanbase was so incredibly young.
>>
>>41297240
Even outside of memes and fan-content, for the other 2/3 there is the simple truth that a lot of players who will get into the franchise now will naturally think "Where do I start?", see that EoSD is the first Windows game and go from there. And if they end up falling in love with the franchise, it will have to have been early on for them to even stick around enough to play the later games, meaning that if they fall in love with the series it will have a high chance of being when they play the early games.
>>
>>41297669
I'm not sure, but I don't think the age range of the fanbase itself has changed much and it's not like the target demographic of Touhou are 40 year olds.
The people who are actively invested in Touhou rotate, the older crowd tends to move on and younger people move in. You can't expect the exact same people who were around 15 years ago to stick forever, this site is no different in this regard.

That's why when that question comes, I first answer that the series is fairly consistent overall, before engaging with some common entry points. If i'm feeling through I might mention unique points about entries I like. Want a sense of experimentation with each run? Try UM. Want a good beginner entry that eases you in through relatively simple patterns rather than a huge amount of ressources, letting you engage with more of the game instead of skipping it with bombs? Try TD. You can make arguments for every game.
I am of the opinion that even at its most gimmicky, no Touhou game is that overwhelming as long as you're willing. In fact, the strongest source that may dissuade one over that small time frame is difficulty, which is why I rank 11, 12 and 15 slightly lower as beginner entries (Might fit for a certain crowd especially with PD in 15 helping practice if you're wiling to endure a bit of bashing against the wall)
No matter the title, most beginners will go through roughly the same hardships: First struggles in Stage 2, getting tougher in Stage 3, big stage spike and likely roadblocked in Stage 4, needing to practice, facing more hurdles in the later stages, trying to avoid bleeding ressources in the first 3 stages, and losing your 1cc virginity. Might as well have it be to Miko, Kanako or Keiki instead of Remilia all the time.

I honestly thought Marisa had a good chance for 1st place because of 100th Black Market, but even then she's very close to Flan points-wise. Wonder where Flan would be if this video released after the poll.

I got into Touhou when I was 9 but I'm almost certain these numbers are from some parents into Touhou making their kid vote for shits and giggles and not actual kid Touhou fans.
>>
>>41298248
Probably yeah. After all, a 9 year old doesnt really have much to do on the Internet. It's the kids of parents who introduced him to Touhou
>>
>>41298248
I too find it hard to believe that 36 children use the internet.

Kids are practically raised on the internet these days, I'm not doubting that as much as I don't think a kid would have the patience to do a poll like this.

Clearly you aren't familiar with Byakuren's character. Aya may have been exaggerating, but she wasn't far off, given what we've had to read about Byakuren.

52 is not that much worse than 44. I think being brand new generally gives characters a boost, so it's not unexpected to see her go down a bit.
The real test will be next year. Can she maintain her popularity for another year?

It doesn't because Touhou always had big secondary appeal. Years ago it was IOSYS and the like causing the boom, today it's gacha and twitter memes. The only thing that changed about popularity was the means through which it spread.
And as much as I hate the gacha, ZUN made a smart decision in giving them the OK if his goal was bringing in new blood.
>>
>>41309145
ZUN's goal is to make money to feed his family and wife. It's over, dude. Touhou is dead. Now he's approaching 50 years old and he'll be withering and demented by then. He'll be too decrepit to make Touhou so he'll be happy with the amount of monwy he made off secondaries who got introduced to gacha.

Bad Apple saw a huge spike in 2021 when it released, which lines up well with newer fans being exposed to music. It was EoSD's 20th anniversary this year as well, so that probably counts for something. I'm more curious about the 105 > 61 jump the title theme saw last year.

I still can't believe how high the "not played" section is. At the very least play MoF...

It's been doing pretty well in terms of sales and popularity, but unfortunately DeNA is close to bankruptcy so it had to cut down on everything besides its most profitable games like pokemon masters ex.

Honestly, I don't think you should be allowed to vote unless you have at least a single 1cc, even if it's just on LLS.
>>
>>41309266
ZUN said himself that he wants to make Touhou games with his kids if I remember right, so that's a possible future of Touhou. I could be mixing him up with some other indie dev though
>>
>>41318246
Honestly I don't even care about 1cc's, or even with continues, just playing any given game to stage 3 only takes up a couple dozen minutes of your time at worst...

>>41321116
I'm not saying I can't, though I fucking suck and have only 1cc'd MoF and IN on normal, I'm saying that if people vote the very least they could do is at least try the games for a bit before the usual difficulty spike. I know secondaries will be secondaries but its just depressing to see people taking time out of their day to vote for something literally more than half of them have never touched.

The poll is about popularity and open to everyone. Even people who never touched a touhou game and only know a bit about touhou from browsing the internet know about Reimu, Marisa and EoSD characters. If you think about it that way, what's actually surprising is that Cirno is not the winner.
That said, it sucks that we can't filter through the raw data to check what people who have actually played the games have voted, as this info would be more interesting for actual touhou fans.
