The Higurashi no Naku Koro ni 2nd Best Pair Poll was held from May 15 to May 19, 2007, five months after the release of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei. Voters could cast one vote for a character pair per day. They were also able to nominate their own characters for one or both members of a pair. Character entries that do not have a portrait are marked with an asterisk in the results table below.

The webpage is no longer online, but the results may still be found on the Internet Archive.
