Kiki's Delivery Service 魔女の宅急便 (Majo no Takkyūbin)


Thirteen-year-old Kiki leaves home with her talking black cat Jiji to train as a witch. She flies on her broomstick to the port city of Koriko.

In exchange for accommodation, Kiki accepts a job delivering goods by broomstick from Osono, a kindly bakery owner. She meets a variety of people through her work, including an artist, an old woman, and Tombo, a geeky boy obsessed with aviation. At first Kiki is annoyed by Tombo and his extroverted friends, but she warms up to him after they take his flying bicycle for a test run.

In the latter half of the film Kiki becomes depressed. She discovers she can no longer understand Jiji, and has also lost her flying ability, forcing her to suspend her delivery business. Kiki gets a surprise visit from Ursula (the artist), who determines that Kiki's crisis is a form of artist's block. Ursula suggests that if Kiki can find a new purpose, she will be able to reclaim her powers.

While Kiki is visiting a customer, she witnesses an airship with Tombo on board. A strong gust sends the airship out of control into Koriko, and leaves Tombo hanging in mid-air. Kiki regains her flying power and manages to rescue him. She regains her confidence and resumes her delivery service. Kiki's parents receive a letter saying that she and Jiji are happy.
