Kiki, a 13-year-old witch-in-training, must spend a year living on her own in a distant town in order to become a full-fledged witch. Leaving her family and friends, Kiki undertakes this tradition when she flies out into the open world atop her broomstick with her black cat Jiji. As she settles down in the coastal town of Koriko, Kiki struggles to adapt and ends up wandering the streets with no place to stay—until she encounters Osono, who offers Kiki boarding in exchange for making deliveries for her small bakery. Before long, Kiki decides to open her own courier service by broomstick, beginning her journey to independence. In attempting to find her place among the townsfolk, Kiki brings with her exciting new experiences and comes to understand the true meaning of responsibility.

Great anime movie with lots of themes and subthematic elements, rich characters and development, and this constant feeling of joy & wonder


Ghibli classic about a girl, a cat, some bread, a boy, and flying—it’s uplifting (pun intended, thank you very much)!


Kiki is a wonderful girl. Great film.


A classic story of a girl going to see the world for the first time and make it on her own. Just a bit harder for your average teenage witch


Very Miyazaki in its inspection of every day life for a unique character. Makes you smile and feel good. Beautifully animated


Seek out the original Disney dub. Phil Hartman is fantastic as snarky cat Jiji.


A Movie about how we loose our magic the more grounded we become. And the more grounded we become, the more we show our magic



    Anime was a mistake
