There are so many characters you can vote for in the Preliminaries, so I wonder if all of them are well-known. I'd like to know how many of them do you know on the list of 144 Candidates that you can find here
Plus, you could add who are the characters you don't know ; it'll be interesting to see if 2010-2011 are the ones not known, or if it's rather the older ones.EDIT by Crisu:

I provided a page that helps you count them.
Depending, it may be better for you to count the ones you DON'T know rather than the ones you do.
Personally, I don't know those girls because I didn't watch their anime :
Yamamoto Nanako (Hanamaru Yōchien)
Sendō Erika (Fortune Arterial)
Chrome Dokuro (Katekyō Hitman Reborn!)
Yuno (Hidamari Sketch)
Hoshina Utau (Shugo Chara!)
Amano Tōko (Bungaku Shōjo)
Enma Ai (Jigoku Shōjo)
Rose (Dragon Crisis!)
Oikawa Tsurara (Nurarihyon no Mago)
Hinamori Amu (Shugo Chara!)
So I know 133 of them I don't plan to watch any of these shows now as there are almost always only one characters to learn about... But I'll watch them if they make it to the Regular Season !
