Review
More Miyazaki magic (the creator of Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and The Castle In The Sky) at last available for us Brits to indulge in. Once again, the world he creates is infused with a realism that borders on the photographic in its detail that makes the fantastical elements of the story strangely believable. Kiki is a young witch who has moved from the country to a seaside town as part of her supernatural work experience. She starts the eponymous delivery service and thus begins her education in her role as a young independent witch. Similar themes such as life in the city and the mystery of the country are explored, as are the strong bonds between young friends. A simple yet beautifully told (and drawn) story.
