Which Tales of Series character will make it to the top this time?
The Tales of Series Character Popularity Ranking Poll is back for 2021! In the last Tales of Festival, Mikleo took the crown as the number one Tales of Series character. For this year, will Mikleo keep his crown, or will the Tales of Arise characters shoot through?
The Tales of Series Character Popularity Ranking Poll is a seasonal official character poll usually held at the Japan Tales portal website, Tales Channel Plus. Voters are required a Tales Channel Plus account to vote for their single most favorite character, along with other subcategories to vote in. You can cast your vote here.
Voting has begun and will be until November 7, at 11:59PM JST. Partial results will be released via Tales Channel Plus on November 15 at 12:00PM JST. The remaining results (usually the top 10 for each category) will be then be announced during the Tales of Festival 2021 proper on November 20 and 21, 2021. The venue has been changed from Yokohama Arena to Tokyo Garden Theater in the Tokyo Bay Area. The theme for this year is "Winter Party".
The character selection reaches up until Tales of Arise (no Tales of Luminaria). In addition, characters appearing in both Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2 are considered as just one character. Categories for voting are as follows:
- Character Overall Popularity Ranking
- Reminder that since Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia) and Leon Magnus (Tales of Destiny) have been awarded Hall of Fame status last Tales of Festival 2013, they can no longer be voted for in this category. You can still vote for them in the other categories for human characters, though.
- Favorite Mascot Character
- Character you would want to hold a Winter Party with
- Character you would want to cook with at camp
