In commemoration of the 10th Tales of Festival, the Tales of Popularity polls makes a return after a three year absence. There are several categories to vote in this year and there are more to come in the months leading up to Tales of Festival 2017. Currently, the categories are:

A Tales Channel+ account is required to vote. Also, Yuri Lowell & Leon Magnus aren't eligible for votes in the Favorite Character category as they were added to Hall of Fame status at Tales of Festival 2013 due to the amount of times they've topped the rankings in the past. Some of the results of these polls will be revealed during Tales of Festival 2017.

For those curious, here are the links to the previous Popularity Poll results:

  • KaydonJAK

    Every bet that Velvet wins.

    • Marths

      This.

  • Ryan Garcia

    I'm honestly surprised that Milla has never won despite her huge popularity with fans. Maybe she's more popular in the West?

    • Simon Low

      Probably her bazongas is not as revealing as Velvet's. lol. just kidding.

      • Ryan Garcia

        LOL That could be one reason. However, Judith hasn't won either and she wears less clothes than Velvet and she "bounces." ;-P

  • MillaMaxwell

    Thanks for this! I always see the popularity contest results, but I never knew how to actually participate. 🙂

    I voted for Milla, Tenebrae, Yggdrassil, and Farah. I love what I've seen of Velvet so far, but I want to wait until I've actually beaten the game before I decide whether she's one of my all-time favorites. I'm sure she'll rank really high though because Japan has had Berseria for a while now.

  • Linkfire

    I guess Yuri will take first place this time again...

    • InfinityAge11

      I thought Yuri had been banned like forever ago?

      • Linkfire

        Seriously ? Why ?

        • PanbanRichard

          "Also, Yuri Lowell & Leon Magnus aren't eligible for votes in the

          • Linkfire

            Oops...How could I miss that ? I guess it's time to change my glasses (-__-)

        • InfinityAge11

          Because him and Leon, who was also banned, won way too many times. They wanted to diversify it up. They put those two and maybe others who I can't remember into a "Hall of Fame".

          • Linkfire

            Thanks. I noticed thanks to PanbanRichard.

            As I can't vote I will cheer for Edna then
            *Gambatte !!! Edna chaaaan !*

  • Zappa

    I want the announce of my Tales of Vesperia Remaster for PS4 <3

  • DCHShadow

    I may be missing something, but how exactly are you supposed to vote for the pools, I tried to create an account but it says I can't register in the country/region.
