Wich reminds me why Marisa is one of the most (if not the most) popular Touhou character.
Nope.

She won three of those contests. Reimu won other three. That means black-white and red-white are tied for first place for most popular Touhou character of all times, wich still puts Marisa on top.

Seven of ten contests have their results listed; one of the unlisted ones consisted only of spellcards. Of the seven listed contests, I count three first places for Reimu, two for Marisa, and two for Sakuya.
EDIT: Nevermind, the first was a tie between Sakuya and Marisa.
I fail to see how three "wins" for Marisa and three for Reimu puts her ahead in whatever it is you're measuring, though. Unless you mean sharing the top.

Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.

Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.
Tier 1: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything and the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.[/spoiler]

Most of them aren't really as chibi as they are usually depicted I think. A head shorter rather than waist height etc.

...Wow.

EDIT: Well, here's the song, but it's the lyrics I was reacting to.
[spoiler]She came back to our place after time like the eternity had passed.
The fantasy village brought dramatic improvements in marvelously.

She came back to our place after time like the eternity had passed.
It doesn't permit as she is forgotten by the newcomer's appearance.

Worship it!
She is guardians of mankind!
The god's power of equal matchless.
Absolute charisma unaffected also as for the changing world.
We believers must worship her!
The god's power of equal macthless.
We don't permit her to be going to be forgotten in the future.

The decrease in her influence in the fantasy village
was clear according to a long series of absence...
but, it came the revival!

Worship it!
She is guardians of mankind!
The god's power of equal matchless.
Absolute charisma unaffected also as for the changing world.
We believers must worship her!
The god's power of equal matchless.
We don't permit her to be going to be forgotten in the future.

Even if the appearance's an evil spirit
Even if the appearance's an evil spirit

In the divine protection of her is magic,
the fantasy village's freedom through all eternity.


Nostalgic laser light glitters over there of the horizon....
However, the light is a little different from what we were getting used to seeing.
The sea, the mountain, and the sky ...Oh! Resonate!
Glitter! MASTER SPARK![/spoiler]

SFT, I don't know what Suwako did but I approve of it.

I assumed you were linking something by the author of Mamange, though.

I've read that too. Didn't like that Sanae much better either.


Then again, I kinda don't like Sanae at all.

Might help

See, I've already readed that about Sanae, and I simply don't buy it. She's not an innocent everyday person. She never was.

[spoiler]

My god and I will be taking over this mountain now.
Then, if we can take over your shrine --

All of Gensokyo's faith will be ours
...

But this is also for Gensokyo's good.

Gensokyo will become weak if it continues in its
current state of lessened piety.

We'll all lose the power to cause miracles.
 
I'm Sanae, the wind priestess, Descendent of a long-forgotten line of gods incarnate in the outside world.

Sometimes, the humans that revere a god are themselves revered.
Sometimes, shrine maidens can become gods.

Since you're a shrine maiden, are you prepared for
such things to happen?


I see. Well, that's okay.
Why don't I do the punishing for you, instead?

Then, maybe you should watch and consider the power of a living god ...

The divine power to cause miracles!



[/spoiler]
Sanae's not some simple town girl. She's a mighty priestess drunk with divine power that believe's she's in her right to take over that mysterious land, and any who don't agree shall be crushed.

Even gangster Reimu just demands some protection money. Sanae is a full-out conqueror who takes great pleasure in her job and thinks beating the crap out of those weaker than you is fun.

Wich may explain her popularity anyway, just for the oposite reason. Sanae's popular because she got great easy power and actually enjoys it, contrasting with Reimu (easy power, but doesn't really enjoys it) and Marisa (enjoys power, but works damn hard to get it). Sanae's a walking delusion, a real world person who jumps into Gengyoko and gets to play on the high leagues right away.

Speaking of wich, I took the chance to check out Marisa's entry on that page, and I must sincerly ask if it didn't cross anybody's mind that the simple reason Marisa atracts the atention of so many magician youkai is simply because Marisa's a powerfull magician herself, instead of the typical "Marisa's some super-charismatic seductress!" I keep seeing.

EDIT: Exhibit A, Marisa's tought process

Quote from: Subterranean Animism Ex
Sanae:
Hoho, I know how to give you a proper greeting this time.

You can't let yourself be trapped by common sense in Gensokyo, right?
I think shes flipped it a bit over leaving reality and going to Gensokyo.
1) Her magic is probably stronger in Gensokyo - Go from cantrips to world shaking power
2) Friends in reality, perhaps?
3) Once she goes there, everyone seems to be working on a completely different logic, based on beating each other up and getting very drunk.
4) A Shrine Maiden's job is technically Youkai Extermination
5) She always went all out.
6) Kanako is a war god.
