People may have different criteria for what is "new", just so everyone is voting using the same criteria, see "new" in regards to ISML, a character who hasn't participated in any of the past preliminaries/main-seasons towards Tiara/Scepter. It does not include match appearances in seasonals, other exhibition tournaments, and one-off exhibitions. If a character never participated in any preliminary/main season matches, he/she is new to ISML even if he/she comes from a show that had aired a long time ago.

For reference, this year it is 17.27%.

Main Tournament debutantes? It's natural that the number of new contestants will decrease over time as many characters establish their place as regular competitors. Some people also vote for their characters based on history of past tournaments. Because of this, someone will inevitably find more recent editions "boring" because they keep seeing the same faces every year.

Most debutantes will naturally come from last year's anime shows. Some Characters from older shows may qualify for various reasons, whether it be campaigns, brigades or sequels.
