Kiki's Delivery Service

While I Am not normally into japanimation anime, I must make an exception with this title, mostly for reasons of the storyline. A young witch sets off to "train" somewhere afar off until she comes upon a bustling towne where she acquires a job with a bread shoppe, making deliveries via her broom, until one day for some reason, her powers falter, so she must find a purpose in her existence, eventually regaining them to rescue what becomes her inventive boyfriend from a doomed durigible flight. She carries her black cat "Jiji" with her, a wise-cracking and sometimes nagging little feline who himself becomes imfatuated with a neighboring white cat, and end up mating. This is a charming presentation which may have been in part responsible for inspiring "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch" - the latter which I would not necessarily recommend, but this little film is recommended for Infernal Progeny. The only issue I had with it is, that she does not really use any "powers" for anything other than for flight - on the way to the township, she meets another witch in flight whose speciality was fortune-telling, but it seems that Kiki never found hers, and unfortunately, she may probably one day marry the mortal, as ingenious as he is, yet still not a proper Warlock, as it should be.

Rating: 4/5.
