The story is about a girl who tries to become a full-fledged witch, as she experiences many things through her slump. It is good a story for adults to kids, everybody can enjoy watching and have fun. This movie draws you into the world of Kiki’s Delivery Service as being described by Kiki’s smile and crying face, success, and fails. Those emotions will make you excited and when you notice, it is already ending. It will make you forget about time and you will be into this movie. This is the movie that makes you want to watch it once in a while.
This movie has a couple of elements to create a warm atmosphere and that makes it comfortable to watch. The music is so soft and matches with the worldview, the people who are around Kiki don’t have a thorn at all and they are all nice, and this is important but Jiji is so cute! (‘∀`) I love cats personally so, in a different meaning, this is Moe~ for me. ψ(｀∇´)ψ Those elements are good for kids to watch. Nobody has harmful attitude and that world is peaceful! Who doesn’t like the world like that?? @^-^@ I guess I like the witch story which is so relaxing and warm. Do you know the anime flying witch? This is not from Studio Ghibli but it is also a relaxing witch story. If you have free time, you can check it out! You might like it! ♪(*￣ω￣)v
Since I have watched this movie so many times, what I have noticed is the details of the pictures are so nice and soft. Especially, the pictures of food! Pay attention to the foods on Studio Ghibli’s movies. Every time, I watch the movies of Studio Ghibli, I get hungry so much! That is because of the pictures of the food and the way the characters eat! I didn’t notice this until lately but look at the picture all the way above! You see the bread behind her! It makes you hungry right? (T-T ))(( T-T) Okay….. Maybe, only me then! （ ＴДＴ）
Anyway, this movie is timeless especially the city. As if we go to travel somewhere, I want to go back to this city sometimes. Great ocean view, the townscape under the sunshine, and you will see them when Kiki flies in the sky! I love the scenes of those. It gets my chin up even though I have a bad day. The catch phrase of this movie is “I was depressed but I’m fine now”. I want you to watch this movie when you are down or depressed. I am sure that this movie will cheer you up! You will be able to forget about your bad day and it will give you the energy to go on to the next day! If you haven’t watched this movie or you haven’t watch it for a while, why don’t you watch it? The anime that are great won’t fade out. If you want to relax on your day off, this movie is for you! b( ﾟ∀ﾟ )
Thank you for reading this post! I wonder Kiki’s delivery service can beat the post office service or other delivery services in Corico city….. lol βγё②φ(0∀0*ο
