Curiosity got the best of me so I ended up buying a copy of the issue where the poll was announced.
This group shot was also included in volume 16 of GNG (as well as other book releases of the series iirc), minus the names and voting numbers of course. In hindsight, it having originally been made to showcase all the characters for a poll kind of makes sense... imho it's a bit crowded and some of the positioning is a bit awkward (Suiga just hanging out sideways on the side and Raiga's brothers looking like they were included on him as an afterthought come to mind) so it being a promotional image that just had to have all eight characters explains a lot.
:bon1:
