Character popularity poll 2017!

Post by Lindz » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:33 am

Its time. Once again.

Go go go Terajima Ryoko!

Broken up into 3 catergories: Human Male, Human Female, and Beast (lol why did they even bother). IRL gender doesn't apply hence why Sora (movie) is up against the boys. Vote for 1 each! Don't try an cheat the system!


btw where the heck does Al, Lyco, Shugo, Rena, and Haseo B-st's portrait art come from? Cause they're definitely not from Link (despite their pals Hokuto, Ouka, etc. being sourced from it).

Which one is Al?

Lyco, Shugo, and Rena look like Rei Izumiya, the illustrator for the original and remake of Legend of the Twilight manga's doing, particularly the UDDN Complete Book promotion.

As for Haseo B-st form, I seen it used for promotional material when .hack//GU TRILOGY was about to be released.

Albireo, first guy/character on the voting list!

Thats very possible these are pulled straight from promo art (I could check over the complete editions). Still seems weird to be that this very small group of characters aren't using Link art while all other non-CC2 published characters are using it.

Thats a perfect match! Curious as to why they dug that up yet used Sora's art from Link instead of from the movie or Versus? Speaking of which, where the heck are Balder and Gondo? And Quantum and Thanatos reps??

This is similar to the art in various infobooks, they have no problem pulling it from various sources.

They're definitely light on the movie characters, otherwise that would mostly cover Thanatos Report. I didn't count, but this seems like less than the 133 Twilight Knights...

I love Haseo but they really need to do what Tales of did with Yuri and ban him from these polls lol

I know there's no chance of Ovan breaking the top three, but I'm gonna keep voting for him anyway! \( ; v ; )/

They could but apparently didn't except in the case of 5 character is what comes off as weird but whatevs!

Oh yeahs I just noticed the Liminality crew is nowhere in sight. Online Jack neither aside from Salvadors PC, which shouldn't count for him alone since other characters have their real world / PC selves up for vote. Yet GnU gets a representative! But only just the one they had a convenient easy ta grab image lying around for. There are alot of characters missing total!

Also G.U. Trilogy is considered an OVA?? Coulda swore at some point they had it labeled as a movie.

At least this time around there are no write-in votes which in the past allowed people to put votes in for actual real life people x.x; Plus while ya could workout an overall ranking having 'em seperated into groups allows for more representation overall!

Is it just me or was Endrance's push to rank 2 really sudden? There must be a bunch of real-life Saku's that just caught on to this poll.

Atoli has blown past Shino?

Not only that but past Alkaid?

Along with the Endrance thing, this polls heating up!

I'm actually shocked Endrance came so close to beating Haseo. I wonder if he was the "Terajima Ryoko" this time lol

She was 22nd out of 60 in the human female division, so more popular than over half of 'em fwiw.

Hey he had my vote! And in the human male division he placed 12th (Link ver.) and 38th (bullet ver.). Adding those vote counts together woulda pushed him up to 11th place.

One of these days CC2 will learn how to run a good poll. They almost did with this one, what with breaking things up into divisions which allows many more characters to get spotlighted, this also wasn't was "write-in" poll so no weirdos like Matsuyama got voted on in place of actual .hack characters. But. They did the whole listing the same person as multiple characters thing which split votes as seen with Tokio and others. Plus they left out a big chunk of characters, not even close to everyone was truly represented here as seen with NO ONE from Quantum being there.

Tabby almost beat Mia. And for the first time in a long time Atoli has finally re-claimed her title as Haseo's top waifu.

That's alright. Maybe after .hack//Link is someday released overseas he'll get some more shine. I mean It might take a few years, plus a few protests, however versus Haseo, Tsukasa, and even Kite he's honestly the most upbeat.

I would have loved to see more of Sakuya or the Novel Characters though.

If //Link is to be re-released it needs to be reworked from top to bottom. Story and Music are great but the gameplay is... lacking.

At least Albireo was still in the top ten of Males. granted rated last of the main Male characters (except for Tokio) grumble, grumble...

Funny enough, if you consider that Elk and Endrance are the same person, he did technically win the poll, hehe.

• the 0 vote characters aren't displayed on the site now but when voting was open they were selectable and I snagged their poll icon pics
• gender applies to characters PCs an not necessarily their real life selves
