Contest Database

Welcome to the unofficial database for Danmakufu Contests!

Over the years, various contests have been held, both public and private. And in each case, we continuously spew out more and more danmaku in increasingly copious quantities. I am making this 'database' as a way for people to actually *find* contests.

The database was originally compiled and prepared in late January-early February 2016.

Contests are only added into the JSON database once they have finished and/or the submission deadline has passed. Planned or In-Progress contests will be in RED rather than AQUA, which is used for Completed contests.

Table of Contents

Query Box

You can make requests here. Please notify me if there are any errors.

Contest per Year shows the number of contests per year hosted in MotK and LOCAA

Avg. Num. of Participants by Loc. shows the yearly average number of contestants for MotK and LOCAA

Participants Over Time shows all of the contests in the database on a timeline showing number of participants and frequency + length of contests. For reference, this is my favorite chart and the only one with actual practical usage.

Participant History spits out the contents of the database and will create a timeline showing when certain individuals first and last participated in contests. This is also a favorite chart.

Formatting Notes

(This is an alternate name) [This is the name of a script]

Contestant 1, Contestant 2 - comma used to separate names

Only first three places will be available here on the page as well as in the database itself. This is due to older contests not having actual rankings beyond 3rd place at all.
