YesAsia Editorial Description

Renowned animation house Studio Ghibli and director Miyazaki Hayao offer a different kind of coming-of-age tale with Kiki's Delivery Service. Based on the children's book by Kadono Eiko, Miyazaki's much-beloved youth romance follows the journey of a 13-year-old witch-in-training who goes to the big city and becomes an entrepreneur by starting her own delivery service. While the story is pure fantasy, Kiki's Delivery Service is an enchanting, but down-to-earth tale about finding confidence in yourself and the magic of young love. After winning multiple awards in Japan, Kiki's also set a new record for the highest-grossing animated theatrical release in Japanese cinema history - until Miyazaki beat his own record three years later with Porco Rosso.

When a witch reaches 13 years old, she must go off and live alone for a year. For her training, Kiki takes off to the port city Koriko with her best friend, a black cat named Jiji. After a difficult start, Kiki manages to make friends and even start a delivery service that takes advantage of her flying abilities. She is also pursued by Tombo, a teenager who is an aviation enthusiast and intrigued by Kiki's powers. One day, in the biggest crisis of her young life, Kiki suddenly loses her flying powers and the ability to talk to Jiji. Will Kiki be able to get her powers back?

Blu-ray Edition includes storyboards (in picture-in-picture mode), dubbing script, the video clip "Ursula no e", a picture label, and trailers.

Professional Review of "Kiki's Delivery Service (Blu-ray) (Multi-Language & Subtitled) (Region Free) (Japan Version)"

September 9, 2004

This professional review refers to Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) (DVD) (Hong Kong Version)
You know, reviewing all these Studio Ghibli films is beginning to take its toll. My thesaurus is shredded trying to find new superlatives and let's face it, if I say, perfectly realised characters one more time the Reviewers Guild is going take away my keyboard, fez and ceremonial dagger.

In Kiki's Delivery Service Myazaki explores a character's need to define themself and establish their independence in the world. His heroine Kiki, bursting with verve and enthusiasm, moves to a large city where, for the first time she encounters the problems of loneliness and future uncertainty. Kiki's problems of that of a teenager moving toward adulthood. Her witchy wardrobe, (which, although black, certainly is the height of frumpy chic), marks her as different and thus a figure of some ridicule to those of her own age. Myazaki captures her conflict between her wanting to fit in battling her desire to run and hide.

Myazaki's world design evokes his love of pre-war Europe. It is a bright, sunny and bustling coastal Mediterranean city. His focus is one again on the small triumphs of life. Myazaki lifts the simple task of Kiki delivering a birthday present into the realm of high adventure.

The cast is filled with wonderfully drawn and understated characters. Kiki's cat familiar, Jiji provides moments of great hilarity with self-absorbed observations that show a complete disregard for tact. Kiki makes a number of friends in her new town: the pregnant and effervescent Osono and her silent yet demonstrative baker husband who offer Kiki a room; Tombo, a teenage boy with dreams of flying who immediately falls for Kiki; and Ursula, a painter who Kiki discovers working alone in the forest.

It is this last character who plays a pivotal role in Kiki's journey. When Kiki is faced with a loss of confidence it is Ursula who shows Kiki the universality of her feelings, the importance of maintaining passion when faced with indifference and continuing to work when inspiration is lacking.

If I had to be critical, Myazaki's dramatic set piece ending somewhat undercuts what has gone before. One highly visible heroic deed establishes Kiki in the town overshadowing her personal insights gained through struggle. It also gives the film an abrupt ending which Myazaki attempts to redress with a series of events that play during the credits.

Ultimately, these are minor quibbles and once again Myazaki presents a masterful story for all ages that skilfully uses a young witch's powers as a powerful metaphor for utilising one talents and leaving one own unique imprint on the world.

Kiki doesn't deserve a bad review Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Kiki's delivery service has a great story and is very funny especially if you are listening to the English voice track (the dark voice of jiji the cat). This movie is violent free but is never boring; in my opinion one of the very best movies made by Studio Ghibli.

In short the story is about a witch that has to learn to live by her own... I don't like spoiling the movie, so just watch and enjoy it!

Cheers,
a huge Studio-Ghibli-Fan.

Not Just For Children, Kiki's Delivery Service Is Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I first became interested in this anime after reading a review of in in The Anime Cafe whose main reviewers, Akio Nagatomi and Jane Nagatomi maintain what has got to be the best all around anime movie review site in Canada; possibly the best in the English speaking world.

Character development is Kiki's strong point and we watch as three of the movies central characters; Kiki, Ursula and Tombo make major adjustments to life’s challenges through courage, determination, insight, and friendship.

The movie's central theme is young adolescent rites of passage as personified in the character of Kiki, a budding witch-in-training who has just turned thirteen and must, as part of traditional witches custom, spend a year away from her hometown to try to develop her witchy life's talent in a strange place. This, of course, means that she must leave everything and everyone she knows and loves behind. The only exception is her black cat Jiji, a skeptical, sarcastic and acerbic little fur-ball who is taken along and winds up facing some major problems and adjustments of his own.

Kiki is just beginning to develop a serious interest in boys and the movies secondary plot, which is masterfully interwoven with it's primary, is the on-again, off-again relationship she develops with a young boy with an amateur interest in flying (in heavier than air contraptions, for the most part) who she meets in the big town where she settles for her one year trial witching initiation period.

Kiki's relationship to him, a lady artist living in a nearby forest, the pregnant lady who gave her her first break in the town she decides to live in and various other characters, all wonderfully rendered, are what makes up the substance of this tale.
Kiki's Delivery Service belongs among the stellar animes of all time.
