Mamakoe ("Mom's Voice"), a Japanese website supporting mothers with young children, hosted a second annual survey to discover kids' favorite Ghibli movies. This year, 323 mothers with children up to 9 years old participated in the online questionnaire from July 7 through 13. The majority of mothers believed their children's favorite Ghibli work was My Neighbor Totoro, which earned 43% of all votes. Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea ranked second in the 2011 poll, although it won over My Neighbor Totoro by 1% of votes last year.
