H!p Top Songs of 2015 Fan Poll

Welcome to the 5th annual H!p Song of the Year Fan Poll! I will be the first to admit that I only use this blog now as a home base for the annual fan poll, but rest assured that while my life has gotten quite busy with my job and planning my wedding, I am still a H!p fan and I still want to do this poll! That said, given the whole “youtube red” situation, I’d say the odds of a video coming out of it are slim. I will still happily collect and compile results for you though!

The rules are much the same as in previous years.  Below is a list of every song released by Hello! Project in 2015 which has at least been previewed by 12/2/2015. (Note: The KSS album was included in last year’s poll since it originally had a December release date, so those songs are not included). All you need to do is pick your top 10 songs, put them in order, and tell me your list. It should look something like this.

  • +10 Song Name
  • +9 Song Name
  • +8 Song Name
  • +7 Song Name
  • +6 Song Name
  • +5 Song Name
  • +4 Song Name
  • +3 Song Name
  • +2 Song Name
  • +1 Song Name

Except instead of “Song Name” fill in the song that you’d like to receive those points. The song you mark as +10 (your favorite song) will receive 10 points, the song you mark +9 will receive 9 points, etc.

There are three voting options:

1. Comment on THIS thread at Hello! Online

2. E-mail choices to (sending them this way helps the results be more of a surprise)

3. Comment in this post on my blog

PLEASE ONLY VOTE ONE TIME!!! Do not send votes to multiple places. Just pick one. I’m counting on you guys to be honest here. Fans from any country are welcome to submit votes. Votes may be submitted in English or Japanese.

Note: If Tsumetai Kaze to Kataomoi or Endless Sky are previewed in the next few days I might include them. You would be able to change your votes to include either of those songs. Otherwise, they will have to wait until next year’s poll. Same with C-ute’s new album songs other than Iron Heart.

    Re-releases, covers of previous h!p songs and remixes have never counted in this poll, so any rerecorded or remixed album songs, covers in the Juice=Juice album, and “Nen ni wa Nen neniri” version are not eligible . I also do not include musical only songs (songs only released on the musical album). I do not really consider those “Hello! Project” releases since they are never performed in concert, outside of the musical, or ever used again after the musical is over. You also may NOT vote for songs by  HP associated groups that aren’t part of HP such as Lovendor or Up Up girls.

Again, please feel free to spread the word! The results will be better the more people vote. The deadline for voting is Saturday JANUARY 9th.
